You should have the manual for the scanner and the CD.Study the manual with care. Make sure the software is loaded into the computer. You can scan from this or another program such as a photo editor. Be aware that any scan into the computer will be an image file[ JPEG/BMP] and only only be seen as a photographic image in an editor Word processor will not reveal it unless you deploy an character recognition programs - but that's another story

What are the uses of a scanner?


Here are a few things you can do with a scanner.
Copying Documents - You can turn a good flatbed scanner into a copying machine by scanning in those receipts and other important documents and then use your printer to have a copy or just keep a digital copy. The best thing about this is that you could use software to improve the documents, if you need to take out a grease smudge.
Other things a scanner can do is copy a quick recipe out of Grandmas old recipe book, or a page from a magazine that shows the instructions for a new at-home project you have been wanting to do. Maybe there are some old documents in the family that you would like to have a copy of for yourself, those can be added to the computer files just as any other document.
Scanning Photos For Printing - Photographs are nice especially if you are a professional photographer, but you could use the photos for websites to display your latest DIY project. The images could be used for desktop wallpaper or sending to friends and family through email. Because they are digitized you can use computer software to edit them, and make interesting images on top of the first.
Here is something else you could do with a scanner and software. Using the edit feature you can enlarge your projects on the computer screen and then print out only that part. This allows you to make a full-sized pattern of anything you wish, turn around and use it to trace the object on plywood. Once you are done, cut out life-sized reindeer, cows, antique cars, you name it.
Faxing Documents - You can Fax a document that is already in your computer, but if that document is on a sheet of paper, you have a problem. A scanner can scan it in, then you can send it out by using the fax driver. When you have long distance relatives, and you find something in a magazine that they need to see, put the magazine in the scanner and then from the computer send them the information.
OCR - Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software is used to convert images to readable text. Once they are converted you can use a word processor to make the changes that are required. OCR software usually comes with the scanner.
There always seems to be a need to try getting a hard copy of some document or picture into the computer files, and a scanner is the only way to achieve that. Having a good scanner could really improve your home or office by allowing you to copy, organize and save important files and photos on your computer.

I can't print scanned material to full size.


You can try the freeware at the link below:

http://www.bestsoftware4download.com/software/t-free-freekapture-download-npbskbaz.html

The description states: "You can also use FreeKapture as an 'ad hoc' copy machine (by using your printer drivers 'how many copies to print' option)."

It works with all twain compliant scanners. Download and install and then point it to your scanner.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out for you.

How do I change the type of file my scanner saves a document in?


No .Type reconiznition software is very complicated and expensive. All a scanner does is divide the sceen into millions of dots and copies those dots in Picture(JPEG) format. It's software know nothing except to copy what is there.

Lexmarkx125 will scan larger pictures but smaller ones.


Here are some instructions from the Lexmark X63 which was similar to the X125.

The Lexmark X63 uses a sheet fed scanner, intended to scan 8 1/2 x11 inch paper.
  • To scan a document between 5 1/2 inches and 8 3/4 inches wide, center the document between the paper feed guides leading into the scanner and make sure the document is held straight,. Do not bend the document as it is fed into the scanner.
  • To scan photos or pictures that are 5 1/2 inches wide or smaller, you will need to use a flatbed scanner, or "mat" the image into a regular letter-size paper and scan the entire page. When the scan process is complete, crop out the picture using the AUTO CROP option in the Scan and Copy Control program or the photo-editing software.

Does printer need to be connected to a pc?


From the Brother website: The MFC-5440cn offers both a versatile flatbed and an automatic document feeder with faxing and copying that don’t require the use of a computer. Add to that the spectacular high-resolution printing and scanning with both a USB 2.0 full speed and an Ethernet interface and you have the perfect all-in-one for the Small Office/Home Office user to create and print professional color documents. You can even print borderless photos.
Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

I don't know how to scan a document to a file on my NX400 Print, Copy, Scan & Photo. I would appreciate a copy of the manual. Can you e-mail the copy to me?


I clicked on "Home Mode" then followed the instructions. Nice if your doing many photos. But not very simple when you want to scan to a document file. The other scanner that I had (not compatible with Windows Vista) was very simple to use -- did not have to go to many windows a click on various items to get a simple scan. Maybe I should have purchase another brand of scanners.

PLEASE READ **CAREFULLY


Do you want to scan in a document or a picture?

If it is a picture, go to your photo program. Under FILE choose IMPORT then SCAN or TWAIN or your actual scanner (if it shows there.) Have your photo in the scanner ready to go and click on the above. This will scan the picture into your program and you can do any adjustments or cropping needed and "save as" where you want in your files.

A document can be a little more tricky because sometimes your existing document program( Word or whatever doesnt match the document format. However, on many scanners you can choose which program you want to open the document. If your document program will not open it, you can choose" word pad" and once it is there you can save it as an rft document then try opening again in your document proggy. There are many workarounds here to convert documents that didn't come from your program, but with a little patience it can be accomplished.

**Now that I have given you this information, I'll ask you. Do you have the scanner driver installed on your PC? If you do not you won;t be abl;e to scan anything onto your PC, however, you can go to the manufacturers site, click on support or downloads and download the correct driver for your scanner and operating system to your desktop. Be sure to turn off all running programs while you download and install. Once it is on your desktop it will be an exe file. Just click on it to install. Your scanner will then work with your PC and you can scan whatever you want using your programs to do it-picture or document. Good Luck to You.
