canon mp830

My canon mp830 will still scan but the scanning light only comes on half way across and scans half the document. Does the light need replacing and if so, how do you do this? If not, what could be the problem?

Hi, Lgerace1!

So that the Community can help you better, we will need to know which application you're using to scan, and what, if any, special settings you might be using within that application. That, and any other details you'd like to give will help the Community better understand your issue!

Re: canon mp830

the application is the MP navigator, no special settings that i know of.  When you select scan option it'll scan the document and when it brings document up for viewing in the MP navigator applicatoin you can see that it scanned only half and when you observethe function of scanning with lid up while scanning you can see the light bar come across half way lit up and then goes dark(light out).

Hi Lgerace1,


Because only half of the scanning element is illuminating, it is recommended that you contact live technical support . There is NO charge for this call. Real time feedback of a live technical support call would be very beneficial in this case.

Please dial 1-866-261-9362, Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. ET (excluding holidays). A Canon technical support representative will be able to resolve this issue faster.
