Re: Scanning images out of focus
Don't set the scanning at any more than 300 DPI as the human eye cannot recognise any more than this.
Next try scanning in through a different peice of software, like Paint shop pro or Word and see if the results are the same.
Lastly uninstall the scanner driver and reinstall just to set aside a driver fault, as if the fault is still the same the scanner could be faulty.

A multi-purpose printer scanner cannot scan negatives or slides. You need a slide scanner or a flatbed scanner that is capable of scanning negatives and slides. Not all flatbed scanners are capable of scanning slides and negatives.
If you are scanning, you should be able to set the resolution (DPI x DPI) in the scanner configuration. If it is blurry, it could be that the default scan resolution is lower (10 dpi or even 75 dpi). Settings location will depend on the scanner and software used.
Best scan at an equal (300 dpi) or even higher resolution, so you can scale the image afterwards without quality loss.
Did you repaired old drivers? if so first uninstall your products drivers and also its folders from program files, then uninstall "wrong update" and reinstall scanner. sometimes built in scanning modules comes wrong but everything works with original scanning software, use different software to scan and some of them may work perfectlly.
Make sure you have the emulsion (image) side of the slide towards the scanner sensor. Some scanners have a special setting for film still in slide holders to correct for focus. You may need a photo edit program to help with color and density. I find no difference from 35mm to split 5x7s altho bigger is always better.
This is practically impossible. This can happen only when the file is over written! Check your software settings. May be you have selected 'multipage' option. Try scanning one page and two pages (same sheet). If the file size is different, then it means two files are scanned.
Reload your Driver and check your scanning software. I am assuming you are usning winXP/Win 2000.
First off, I'm not too sure if that Printer is a color printer. Its a color scanner yes, but i don't think is a Color Laser Printer!
Secondly, can you explain in more detail what kind of scanning and printing issues you have witht the printer?
Prints unclear as in blurry or too light?
are u having trouble installing the scanner or is it not scanning the images correctly?
