Question about Canon DR-2580C Path-Through Scanner

Blank or blurry left edge of scanned documents

All of a sudden whenever I scan documents there is about an inch on the left side of the page that is left blank or very very light. I have tried cleaning everything, looked for damage from staples, etc. What should I do?

Try scanning a full page (A3) at different levels of contrast and in the Automode also, in color and Mono. Check the output to see if it is software or hardware issue.

Can i skip blank pages while scanning duplex with a 5080c using capture perfect 3.0?


There is option to skip Blank pages. You have to specify in terms of percentage, above which the scanner will save and discard images below the specified percentage.

My HP 7800 creates a blank area on one side when using duplex mode


No manual, but have you checked the scanning light and plates. It could be that some material has been transferred on the to light or plate in such a way as to only effect the scanning when in duplex

I can't scan different document sizes (A3 and A4) in one batch with the Canon 9080C.


IF you are using CapturePerfect 3. version, you can select "Auto detection" for page size, and under 'more' select 'image size' instead of guide plate. Also you may have to select option '1' under user code U10 in case you want to scan pages over 17 inches long. (Press Newfile and Countonly simultaneously, press 'newfile' till you get U10, press 'countonly' and select 1. This will enable scanning upto 1 meter long).
CP3 has "Skip Blank page option", this helps you to automatically delete blank pages on the back side and scan only those with data.

How do i delete error pages after scaanning?


I changed the settings from duplex (double sided) scanning to simplex (single sided) scanning under the settings tab in the scansnap organiser. this was ok since i had all one-sided documents to scan. you would need to reverse this settings change anytime you have a double-sided document to scan.

Can only scan simplex or duplex


The scanner can scan in either simplex or duplex mode only. If blank page is scanned, then it will appear BLANK, else someone would say, my scanner is not scanning properly! Remove balnk pages using software or sort on file size and delete the small sized files. Take care to ensure they are really blank.

This is practically impossible. This can happen only when the file is over written! Check your software settings. May be you have selected 'multipage' option. Try scanning one page and two pages (same sheet). If the file size is different, then it means two files are scanned.

Reload your Driver and check your scanning software. I am assuming you are usning winXP/Win 2000.

This has something to do the brightness chosen. In the manual mode, if you choose a dark output, the output will have tis area also; if you choose, lighter output, it will omit. In the auto scan mode, the scanner decides what is the best output.

Intermittent scanner problem


What brand of scanner is it?

Check in your Twain settings if you have auto-edge detection enabled. Sometimes this will mistake content on the page for the edge of the document.
