From the printer home screen, touch Scan to Computer, and then select a scan profile. Note: Make sure that Scan to Computer is enabled. From the home screen, touch Settings > Device > Visible Home Screen Icons > Scan to Computer > Display.

Lexmark Scan Centre consolidates all scan-related functions into one sophisticated yet easy-to-use application. This powerful tool enables users to review, enhance and index images, then route to multiple destinations using an intuitive, touch screen interface.
You can use Document Capture Pro to scan multi-page originals as separate scanned files. You indicate where you want the new scanned files to start by inserting a blank page or barcode between the pages of your original.
300 dpi is a standard benchmark for an excellent print. 200 dpi will still produce a decent image. 150 dpi can be acceptable if you`re viewing the print from a few feet away.
Before scanning, change settings

Be sure the DPI (dots per inch) is set between 300 and 400. Documents scanned at a low resolution will not be recognized by conversion software. Scanning documents at 600 dpi might be necessary for certain STEM content or other highly formatted documents.

epson xp-600 black ink
ANSWER : Epson printers are relentless for this. What happens is they often run out of ink quickly as they seem to eat up a lot of it. People often procrastinate buying the inks because they are expensive, the print head has drying ink in all of the small holes on the head. This glops up the very small holes and that’s where you get the lines.

scans and prints slanted copies
ANSWER : If you are copying from the adf, the scanner would be stationary on the left side. Copying from the glass the scanner moves across. I can’t agree with the Canon “tech” as paper being stuck in the ADF causing both issues. It would have been my guess if it was just the ADF. I can’t agree with it being a scanner problem unless, the scanner itself was slightly skewed. That would be visible if you lifted the top and looked down on it. The only other solution would be that somehow the paper it is printed on is feeding slightly askew. That could be caused by a piece of paper in the paper path.

Horrible lines in copying or scanning
ANSWER : If you are using the ADF, all pages are scanned with the scanner stationary on the left side. There is a small glass above the scanner and if there is anything on it, dust, whiteout, ink etc. it will interpret it as a line. First solution would be to clean the glass with window cleaner and a paper towel. If that doesn’t solve it, then scan the page on the flat glass and see if the problem continues.

Scanning and copying faint image
ANSWER : The scanning is done by light bouncing off of some mirrors. Could be dust on one of the mirrors. Try shining a light down into the scanner unit and look at the mirror that is visible and see if it has dust coating on the side that is light.

canon mx320 copies have blk line down the right side of copies
ANSWER : If you are using the ADF feeder to make copies, then check the small glass on the left side. If there is any dirt or whiteout on the glass, it will result in a line down that spot. You can confirm it by looking at the copy that has the line. If it is dirt on the glass, the line won’t go all the way from top to bottom. There will be a margin on each end.
