Epson 2450 scanner

Scanning in colour puts a blue tinge to half the image, and black text turns blue over the same area

    I am having a similar problem where my scanner suddenly started scanning everything in blue. The color is monochromatic so I can't even fix it. All film I scan is blue unless I'm scanning normal documents. I tried moving it and using a new cable. What is causing this?

Without knowing all of the details and features of the Epson 2450 scanner, my first suggestion would be to calibrate the scanner. There is usually a calibration option within the scanner driver. If there is some sort of "Advance" mode in the driver, this option would most likely be there. If there is no change after this, then I would suggest to turn the scanner around (180 degrees) so that the front of the scanner is now where the back is. This is simply to see if there is interference coming from the area on the side of the scanner on which the blue tinge was noticed. So if you turn the scanner around and the blue tinge moves to the other side of the scan, then you know there is some type of interference, in which case you could move the scanner away from that specific location, temporarily, until you could locate the source of the interference. Assuming this is USB, you may consider trying a different USB cable. Try to limit the cable length to 6ft or less. Connect the USB cable directly to the computer (for testing purposes) as opposed to connecting through a USB Hub or some other device. If all has failed to resolve the issue, trying the scanner on another computer would be ideal. If the problem still exists, then service will most likely be required.

Hope this helps.

When I scan colour slides the image gets cropped

Uncheck the option that says "Thumbnail" and draw individual marquees for the area on the slide you want to scan. Not very elegant but it works.

Slide scanning with Epson Perfection 2450

I don't know if this is truly a "solution" or not, but I get the same thing on my HP 4850 scans. After scanning, I just crop the pictures to remove the black borders. Can you do that?

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

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.
