Question about Canon DR-9080C Path-Through Scanner

1 Answer

Lower reading unit broken?

Dear Canon DR-9080C Specialists My Canon DR-9080C does not recognize duplex files, it only scans the front side but not the back. Software seems to work right. Now I found something maybe this could be the answer: If I open the scanner and switch it on the upper reading unit lights shortly in green but the lower reading unit lights shortly in red! Does this mean that the lower reading unit is broken? Is there a way to fix the lower unit by myself? Without a horrible expensive exchange of the unit? Would the scanner even work with a disassembled lower reading unit? Any solutions? I cannot find something about the service manual about red light in the reading units! Thank you for your help

Ensure you have selected Duplex option. Canon DR 9080C uses LED lights and hence the chances of failure of light source is fairly low. Try scanning in Color.
The scan module, if required, can be replaced and is available in the market between $600 to $750. Please ensure that the module is faulty before replacing. (the upper and lower modules are interchangeable, except for a few plastic parts)S. Mohan, Chennai, India

SOURCE: Canon DR-9080c Ghosting Problem

Though I've never seen this on any scanner, I can imagine it being a reading glass out of place. This could cause a weaker reflected image overlaying the direct one. Look at the top & bottom glass strips in the transport area. They should look level & unbroken.

SOURCE: Canon DR-9080c scanner not lifting error no page found in feeder

There is a paper sensor just under the rolers in the lifting tray. Clean the area thoroughly with a damp cloth. Keep some sheets and try ]count only'. If it works then the sensor is okay, then you can try your scanning. If it is not sensing paper, check the sensor or connections to the sensor.

Clean the Upper Reading Unit Glass with a soft cloth and isopropyl alcohol.
You may need to clean the shading plates by opening the top cover all the way and holding down the green start key until the shading plates extend.
Clean these with a soft cloth and isopropyl alcohol also.
Do not bend or tear these.
The clear stop key will retract the chading plates.

We have a Canon DR-9080C scanner. When scanning in Duplex on pages with data on both sides, the back side of each page is coming out unreadably faint. The header and any overall large blocks of black on...


The Canon DR 9080C is a 'contact' scanner. There is no optical lens, instead it uses a technology called "Contact Image Sensor' or CIS. The page to be scanned must be close to the glass for a proper image. This is achieved by a full-length rubber roller just above/below the scanning module. The roller is spring loaded and in case it gets stuck, there wont be enough pressure on the document to keep it close to the glass. ensure these rollers are moving smoothly and if required clean them. The rollers are on the opposite of the Scanning module.

Canon DR-9080C gives Low memory message


Duplex scanning, Color Scanning and high-density scanning (600 dpi) cannot go with long documents like 11x17. Change the scanning mode, try one side at a time or reduce the resolution.

Scanner Canon DR-9080C recently started scanning at a slower speed. All setting look to be the same compared to another unit. Any thoughts?


Do you have enough disk space? Try disk Defrag and create more space. Also check the Format you are saving, is it TIFF compressed or uncompressed? The uncompressed file size is really huge.

Getting vertical lines on scanned pages when duplex scanning on canon dr-3080c II scanner Only on duplex side of pages, though. Front page still shows up clean.


It is dust on the glass, clean it thoroughly. You will find it at the same location for all drawings and may get faded for lower brightness!

Canon DR-9080C Duplex Rotation issue


Scan in portrait mode only. Of course this takes more time as compared to Landscape mode. The top module 'reads' left to right as we see it and the botom module 'reads' right to left, if you look from top. So if you scan in landscape mode and rotate, the back side is rotated by another 90 degrees and hence you see it upside down. If you are using PDF file and have Adobe Acrobat, you can specifically rotate odd or even pages.

Canon dr9080 scans front page as all black.


First check if the front side (i.e top) scans properly in the simplex mode. Try different contrast levels for better clarity. In the setting menu select appropriate contrast for both fron and back, then you should get good outputs. Even after all this if the front page gives dark output, may be the LEDs are not glowing due to lose contact. Try in color to check LEDs. S. Mohan, Chennai, India
