Question about Epson Perfection 2450 Photo Flatbed Scanner
Scanning in colour puts a blue tinge to half the image, and black text turns blue over the same area
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.
