MF743Cdw How to do 2 sided original scanning from device control panel

Hello,

Is it possible to scan double sided originals from the device control panel?

I cannot find any option to do so.

I can do it from the utility on the PC, but this is not convenient.

Hi frunobulax.

 

Information about copying with the imageCLASS MF743Cdw may be found at the following page in the printer's Online Manual:

I was asking about scanning, not copying.

Hi frunobulax.

 

I apologize for misunderstanding.

 

For scanning, each of the scan options will maintain their respective settings individually.  A roadmap to each may be found at the following page in the manual:

No, this does not help. Thanks for trying though. I wanted to make the choice at the printer on a job by job basis. Sometimes I need 2 sideded, somtimes I do not. I should not have to reconfigure the scanner every time I need to do this.

There is aparently no way to directly control this from the printer on a job by job basis.

The correct answer is you must use the MF scan utilty to change the setting. If you want to scan both one sided and 2 sided documents, you must use a custom setting.

 

To do this, open the utilitity, click settings, click the middle tab, you can now customize the 4 choices you have when scanning from the printer (Color Scan, B&W Scan, Custom 1, Custom 2). 

You can customise one of the choices to do 2 sided scanning by checking "Scan both sides when scanning from the feeder".

Unfortunately, you cannot rename the Custom settings toi something memorable like "2 Sided color". You will have to remember which oif the 4 chouices you changed to do 2 sided scanning.

It is really frustrating is that there seems to be no way to configure this from the web UI.

This no longer works. "Scan both sides when scanning from the feeder" option is not avaialble.

I had recently updated the drivers, and now two sided scanning cannot be enabled.
