Did You Know That You Can SCAN The Screen Of A Mobile Device — On A Scanner?

by Anura Guruge


Yes, I know that if I can hit the ‘Power’ and one of the volume buttons I could get a screenshot of an Android device. But I have never done it and once I got one I still needed to get it to WordPress (i.e., this blogging platform).

Well a few minutes ago while chatting with a WordPress ‘Happiness Engineer’ about the cropped header on my new Panasonic Lumix ZS100 blog I really wanted a screenshot from my 10.1″ Le Pan so that I could show her what the cropping was like. Occurred to me that I might be able to scan the screen on my scanner! Couldn’t see what real damage it could do. The camera was off so the bright light should not have bothered it. Plus the Le Pan is on its last legs and I will be getting my new 10.6″ Dragon Touch X10 in a FEW minutes! So I tried.

It worked. I did scan in color but it came out b&w. But that was OK. It showed the cropping. So I achieved my goal.

Appears that with the theme I am using, EXPOUND, different types of cropping occurs depending on the size of the end device. On a 6″ header appears FINE with no cropping. On a 10″ the header is cropped! Well, I got around that, but that is another story.

For now the moral of the story is that in a pinch you can get a quick screenshot of a mobile device by scanning the screen on a scanner.

Yes, I know that I could have taken a picture too — with a camera.

I Bought A 10.6″ 8-Core Dragon Touch X10 Android Tablet To Replace My Le Pan.

My Le Pan 10.2″ Android tablet, that I got from Walmart in August 2014 (to replace my 7″ ASUS that died), after acting up now and then, in terms of not powering up, finally gave up the ghost and died, dead as a doornail, Friday night. Friday was quite the day, even without the stock market meltdown. I won’t even tell you how much I lost. Some people have mortgages that are less than that. C’est la vie.

Yes, the Le Pan is covered by a USELESS 2 year product warranty I got from bloody Walmart — for $45. Never again. This is why I bought this from Amazon, the 2nd of the 12 (or more) Android pads that I have bought for the kids, Deanna and I.

I came across the Dragon Touch X10 when I asked Amazon to show me 10″ (or greater) Androids. I have had good luck — or I should say Teischan has had good luck — with ‘cheap’ Chinese Android Pads, i.e., Visual Land. The reviews for this, including one on YouTube, were pretty awesome. I liked the specs. The 10.6″ appealed. I do NOT carry this around. 95% of the time it is on my bedside table. I mainly use a tablet, in the morning, in bed, while I drink my coffee, and listen to CNBC. I check my blog, I read ‘marketwatch.com‘, I read the U.K. “Daily Mail“, cover-to-cover, without fail, and I check camera news. All using Chrome. I don’t use many APPS! So this looks good. Price was acceptable, though it appears the price has gone up in the last 6 months! I paid quite a bit more for the Le Pan 18 months ago.

I will, of course, let you know how it works out after I get it on Wednesday, February 10, 2016.
