Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Incomplete Scanning I'm trying to scan an 8.5 x 11 sheet of music as a pdf. The first page scanned just fine. The second page scans only 3 inches in the middle of the page. It's being cropped for some reason. Any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks

No, your paper hasn't slipped. This is an unresolved bug in the MP500 where it does not detect the size of what you are scanning. Luckily, this appears to only be a problem when attempting to scan from the machine itself. If you use the MPNavigator Software and MANUALLY choose the size of the document you are scanning, it should work. This caused me HOURS of frustration before I found the solution. Good luck to you!

How do I scan multiple pages to one file using a deskjet 2512 printer/scanner


On the control panel, select scan to computer and choose PDF.

If you are using the sheet feeder, it will scan all pages and create one file with them all.

OR

If you're using a scanner glass, i.e. one page at a time, when the first page finishes scanning, you will get a message asking if you have another - answer YES and follow the instructions (basically that means place next page on scanner glass and hit OK/Continue). Rinse and repeat until you've scanned all pages then answer NO.

You should find a PDF file in your HP Scan Folder usually named "scan.pdf" unless you've changed the settings. (If there is/are already scanned files in that folder, they will have consecutive numbers, e.g. "scan001.pdf" "scan002.pdf" etc

When doing a scan ,how do I group 2 or 3 scans together to create a 2 or 3 page file ?


Mark:

You'll need adobe acrobat (the full program) to open your first page, then open the second page and copy the second page to the bottom of the first page, then copy the third page to the bottom of the second page. If you don't have Adobe Acrobat, have your scanner save the file in another format (such as WinWord), then convert to a PDF file if you need to.

Real Slow scanning?


You can try to reduce the resolution, but my own experience scanning to pdf files leads me to believe that your machine is functioning ok. I have 1.5 GB RAM and a dual-core processor that is much faster than the P3, and when I run several documents through, it takes a awhile to scan them

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.

Black line down the middle of scanned documents.


Try leaving the cover open and run a test scan, once with a fresh sheet as the item to be scanned and then a second time without anything on the table.  You may see what is blocking the light source or possibly a defect in it.
Scanning is done left-right, left-right across the width of the page and the vertical stripe indicates that the blockage is present during each scanned line.
In servicing copiers and multifunction machines, I have found a number of curious contaminents, one of the most annoying was a moth, still alive, that would randomly sit on the lamp, causing some pages to come out OK, others not. 
If your copies and printouts are coming out fine, then only the scanner can be at fault.

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.
