    Sharp 5141 mega scan size

    I have two sharps in the same account. One is an MX 4101 the other the MX5141. Same document scanned to a network folder yields 10 times larger when done on the 5141. If you’ve run across this I would be very grateful for any insight.

    You mean like file size?

    If so, simply change the default resolution for scanning in the web page. I think it's under system settings>network scanner settings.

    Mine is 200x200. Perfect for me.

    Did that…made absolutely no difference. That’s why I’m so perplexed. Same 2 originals on the 4101 = 300kb… on 5141 = 3.8MEG. The 5141 has the scan compression as “Standard “ but the file size is huge

    That's really interesting!

    Have you tried doing a complete clone? Shouldn't matter since it's the same account.

    No worries about IP. Cloning doesn't change that.

    Edit: check color, most importantly, ocr scans are smaller. Check ocr settings.

    Don’t know if it’ll take cause the 4101 is 2 models older.

    Check the scan settings if it is B&W one may be set to Grayscale The Mono 2 setting will lower the file size,

    Cloning the 4101 to the 5141 did not do anything to improve the file size. It’s still 10 times larger than on the 4101.
    A two page scan ttakes up 5 megs

    Firmware is current. The PDF compression “ACRE” says “standard”.

    You are a genius! Mono 2 was the setting that turned the trick!
    If I can ever give you a heads up on anything please let me know
