Question about Canon DR-2050C Path-Through Scanner
My Canon DR-2050C scanner started putting a line down the page of the image. I do routine maintenance on the scanner and when that started, cleaned the rollers, etc. I cleaned the glass, can't tell if there's a scratch, but I still have a straight line going down the page. I've never had this happen before and use the scanner on a regular basis. I checked the counter and I'm only at 2300 pages. Any suggestions?
Don't know if this is a solution per se but I replaced the glass bar (there is a part # on it) on the inside front of the scanner and still got a line. Then I played around with the back scanner glass and still got a line then I got in there real good and cleaned and when I scanned something it would show no lines until I saved the document then I got two lines. Thought it was my software going haywire but I did not give up, got some canned air and alcohol and cleaned the glass once again and blew out every part I could find and the problem resolved itself. Apparently the smallest piece of lint or dust, smudge or anything foreign on the scanner lenses will cause this line. But I love this scanner and I wasn't willing to give it up or pay $600 for a new one. Only had it a little more than a year. Persistence seems to be the key but check those little scanner bars and be careful, they are tricky to get out.
