Scanner image is askew

I've had machine over a year, but only recently needed to use scanner. The images are copied, but neither true horizontal nor vertical, no matter how I adjust sheet on glass. When I'm scanning in floor plans, for instance, it's very obviously not correct, because image is either going uphill or downhill. I do not know what to do to correct problem. Everything else seems to wbe working correctly.

Base on your explainination it seems like, this is because of your setting in MP Navigator, the image may not be scanned properly. In such a case, it is necessary to match the settings in MP Navigator to the document. please do the following. 1) Match the type of the document on the platen glass to the document type set in MP Navigator. For example, when scanning a color photo, select Color Photo in Document Type of MP Navigator. 2) Match the size of the document on the platen glass to the document size in MP Navigator. For example, when the document size is A4, select A4 in Document Size of MP Navigator. (Memo) Auto Detect is set in Document Size as the default.

Brother MFC-440CN - print quality terrible, almost non-existent in spite of many cleaning operations.

It sounds like the printhead needs to be replaced. Brother may cover the cost of repair if you call them at 877-276-8437 and tell them the prints are "missing black ink". Very common problem that a new printhead should fix.

I want to reversa an image for later transfer to a t shirt. Can I do this?

If you would like to reverse an image--by reverse, I assume you mean flip horizontally--then you will need an image editor.
GIMP 2.0 is a powerful editor that you can get much more use from with t-shirt making. Download GIMP, select your image, right click and select flip horizontally.
Additionally, some operating systems will allow you to right click the image and select "flip horizontally" or "reverse".

Black copies being received

Your image scanner is bad. Try making a copy....if it comes out black but your incoming faxes are fine then your image scanner is bad. You can also print a report from the machine and it should come out fine.
The image scanner is the part that scans your originals before faxing them out or making a copy. There is a light bar that lights up when scanning. Either that light bar(l.e.d. array) has gone bad or the scanner itself is bad. If this is the case it is probably going to cost more to fix than the machine is worth. You could buy a new machine for what it would cost to fix.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Question about copying direct from scan to a Word document

Check if your Canon software creates a PDF image. A scanned image is a RASTER image, a series of dots, that 'appear' like text or drawing. You cannot use Ctrl-C or Ctrl-v. If the software creates a PDF file, you can cut & paste. Usr any good OCR (Optical Character recognition) software ad convert the raster image to editable text. Then you can cut & paste.

Hi i work in a engineering company who have a old pc,it must be 20 years old nearly,its a compaq deskpro 386/20e,and i need to back it up,it has procim files and .ncf files,ive tried to back it up ,ive...

I have a customer were a similar problem, the machine is so old it will not support any new hardware and obviously the Windows version it is running will not support new software.
Because his machine is starting to fail the first thing I did was connect his harddrive to a more modern machine (XP) as a Slave and make what is known as an Image of his harddrive using Acronis True Image. Now we have a copy of the whole harddrive which can be copied onto another harddrive should the need arise like his harddrive failing.
This is great but what about the updated data? this image is only as uptodate as the day it was made. You can install a simple backup program that is not installed during the install of Windows 95,98 or ME but is available on the Windows CD.
You can find instructions here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/264541/en-us
You can download a free trial of True Image here:
http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/download/trueimage/
The machine I service is set to make a backup everyday and the woman who operates the machine burns a CD of the backup files once a week. Once a month I go and make another Image of the entire harddrive again.
Bear in mind if that machine is as old as you say the BIOS will probably not support a harddrive larger than 4gigabyte and any USB ports are likely to be USB1.1, so backing up to an external harddrive will be slow. You could try installing a Slave to the machine and running True Image on the machine then creating an image on the Slave harddrive.
