Resolved Question:

I have recently installed a Canon pixma MG5350. However apart from installation instructions, there no other instruction in the operation of the copier. I am currently trying to copy a document to my PC. I cannot find the way to do this. Is there a instruction booklet I can obtain to help me use the copier? In every other way I am very pleased with the straight forward printing.

Hello my name isXXXXX look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
What version of windows or mac is on your computer?

Also I want to make sure you know you will not be able to edit the document when scanning it to the computer.
The scanner captures an image of the page that it sends to the computer, so you have a picture of the document and not an actual document.

After pressing 'black' and the copier shows it is scanning, I get Doc.type 'autoscan. then I press the right hand arrow next to the OK button.


Then I get JPEG /300dpi

Let's try scanning using a 3rd party program on the computer instead.

1. Click Start , point to All Programs , point to Accessories , and then click Paint .
2. Click File , and then click From Scanner or Camera .
3. Make any desired setting changes.
4. Click Scan .

To save the scan click on File again and then click on save as.

If this did not work, please come back and let me know by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue.
