Check the cable that connects to the lid of the scanner. If it is disconnected, you won't get the Film options.

In your printer preferences advanced settings drop down the arrow next to grey scale choose black ink only. If it still has the same problem change the Cartridges.

How to scan pepers to my e mail id


I have a mp470. To scan I click start, programs, Canon2_bing.gif utilities, MP navigator, MP navigator extention and a screen opens where I can choose scan/import from the platen or memory card. Click on "photos/documents (platen)" and follow the on screen instructions. The path should be the same for your MP600. You can then save as a file and attach the file to your outgoing email. Good luck.

The print is only clear on the left side of the forms...


Platen Gap Adjustment (Figure 35)
IMPORTANT Only do this procedure if the original equipment shuttle frame assembly or platen has been replaced by a new or
refurbished unit.
1. Prepare the printer for maintenance (page 338).
2. Remove the shuttle cover assembly (page 357).
3. Loosen the platen open belt (page 415, steps 2, 3, and 4).
4. Raise the forms thickness lever (1) to the fully open position.
5. If you are adjusting any model except the 6400-i20, select a 0.011 inch (0.28mm) flat feeler gauge.
If you are adjusting a 6400-i20, select a 0.012 inch (0.30 mm) flat feeler gauge.
ATTENTION Do not force the platen against the feeler gauge. Damage to the hammer tips will result.
6. Insert the feeler gauge (2) straight down between the hammer bank cover plate (3) and ribbon mask (4), within four
hammer positions of the left end of the hammer bank.
ATTENTION Adjust the platen set screws less than 1/4 turn on one side, then check the other side. Adjustment sensitivity is
approximately 0.03 inch per revolution of the set screw. Also, insert the feeler gauge no more than two inches down
from the top of the ribbon mask.
7. Gently close the forms thickness lever (1). As the platen is closing, gently slide the feeler gauge up and down, keeping it
between the hammer tips and ribbon mask. If the feel is too tight as the platen closes, adjust the 3/32 inch set screw (5)
counterclockwise. If the feel is too loose, adjust the set screw clockwise. With the forms thickness lever closed all the way,
the feeler gauge should contact both the tips and the ribbon mask and move with light friction. Shift the gauge slightly to
verify.
8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 at the right end of the hammer bank.
9. After adjusting both sides, check the gap again at both ends. Readjust if necessary.

Its located in the adjustment section of the platen control or in the platen itself.

Lexmark may still be supporting this model printer.
