Question about Xerox DOCUMATE 510 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

When scanning color document, blue tone is present as background shade

When scanning any document, the scanned image always has a blue tone to the final document. When scanning a black & white text document the end product appears to have been done with a blue colored paper with black text on the top.

Any suggestions???

Have long experince with PixEdit program using Kodaks. PixEdit usually comes around it after a firmware upgrade on the scanner. Not sure about this specific model but at least OK on other models of Kodak.

Scanner Model is Kodak i4200. Whenever I scan a document in Color Mode the background is filled with BLUE color. This doesn't happen when I scan in B/W mode. Can you please help ?


If you are talking about a blue tinge Try turning on background smoothing in the driver under adjustments that may sort it or adjust the brigtness and contrast a little if that doesnt solve it Image calibration is the next step you will need to contact Kodak as its not a user function

How to have white background on small documents


All areas outside of the document will be black only. I don't know how you were getting white background.
If you want white background around your scanned image, a) stick the check (in this example) onto a white paper and scan the whole sheet. Ensure double detection is off. b) You can also do this in software, by cropping a larger area outside the scanned image.

There are many options to view the scanned image like Actual size or Fit or Fit vertically or Fit width. The same image will appear different in each case.

My scanner hp3570c has developed this problem since some time now, it scans but the white background is always in some megenta tone and the mater appears in green and blue. please advice what the problem...


you need to depress the original onto the scanner it could be the scanner is not fully resting on the flat surface, or not fully closed, say for example there is a big gap on the scanner and the white plate, try scanning a single sheet only and see if you have the same prob. i assume you are scanning a book or thick material or something, the colored images you see is the reflection of the scanner that goes astray from the actual images that needs to be scanned, the light that was exposed without the white plate reflected was converted into Green and Blue, pls try .

Scanned image only prints in black and white


it's tricky / annoying:

you have a preview ...
you have some of the (3) images checked
but also you have some of these images selected (blue outline)

now:
when you select (I don't mean the checking) an image you'll have to set the scanning params
again - or check them ...

if you select an image, and then set the params (like "color"), your scanned image will be in color

....
also resolution is the same way ..
especially after crating preview .. it'll be set to 300 Dpi
so after seecting one for scanning - check the resolution too :)

Grayblue Background on scans


A color scan will give real output as it is. If the background is grey, the output will also be grey. If you select 256 Color output, there may be small change in color, as compared to the original. If you select grey output, all colors will be converted to Grey. If these files are converted to PDF, it will be same, except in ODF format.

If you select B&W you can save the file in TIFF format. Unlike grey or color, each pixel can be either black or white only. To scan in black and white you must select right brightness. By doing os you can eliminate background (technically noise) and capture foreground(data)

Documents scanned as 256 grey scale/TIFF show up as black pages.


Grey as you know is different shades of black. Uncompressed TIF can store this information. Compressed TIFF is not designed for this. Compressed TIFF is for blck & white only. Try JPG option. JPG can compress Color & Grey. For pure black & white chose TIFF compression.
