When I scan two-sided to pdf, the back page has a large black vertical streak down left side.


If that is the last page that has the streak use a blank page in the original scan as the last page and then the dark line wont cover the image.

A black line scans the lenght of the page


I have cleaned these by taking an alcohol pad, (one of the small individual square ones) and very carefully, using a paperclip to help apply pressure, wipe the glass scanning surface. After inserting it between the glass and the rubber roller, move the paperclip/alcohol pad back and forth between the two, let dry for a few minutes and try scanning again.

My scanner is now adding a page with a black line that runs from top to bottom of the page and the actual document scanned is page 2. But the document is fine with no line through it. Does this mean that...


Check your scanner software settings. It is probably set at duplex ever time you start to scan. That is why you get two pages for every pass, the front and the back. You must place the document in the feeder in a way that the front side of the document is page 2. You may want to flip it next time you scan. So the main question is why there is black line from top to bottom? That is because there is a piece of dirt stuck on the glass of the scanner. You see, this scanner actually does two scanning when a page runs through it: the front and the back in duplex mode. So there are two scanners in side the box. The front page scanner apparently is dirty and needs to be cleaned with clean cloth and lens cleaner.

When i scan a letter 2 page is scanned:letter and blank page


You may be set for front & back (duplex) scanning. Change the setting for front only or simplex. This could be done with check/uncheck boxes, a drop-down menu, or a keyboard shortcut. I believe the standard Kodak settings are via check boxes.
This model is also capable of putting out color & bitonal (black&white) images simultaniously. If that's the case the pages should be separate image files. Uncheck either color or bitonal depending on which you want.

Line going down page


Don't know if this is a solution per se but I replaced the glass bar (there is a part # on it) on the inside front of the scanner and still got a line. Then I played around with the back scanner glass and still got a line then I got in there real good and cleaned and when I scanned something it would show no lines until I saved the document then I got two lines. Thought it was my software going haywire but I did not give up, got some canned air and alcohol and cleaned the glass once again and blew out every part I could find and the problem resolved itself. Apparently the smallest piece of lint or dust, smudge or anything foreign on the scanner lenses will cause this line. But I love this scanner and I wasn't willing to give it up or pay $600 for a new one. Only had it a little more than a year. Persistence seems to be the key but check those little scanner bars and be careful, they are tricky to get out.

Clean the glass with Isopropyl alcohol. Set proper Contrast level. If the level is not okay, you should get atleast a dark/very light image. If there is no image at all reinstall driver. Run Scandisk on the Comp

Canoscan 9950f red line on scan


Try running a calibration. This is done thorugh ScanGear in Advanced mode. Once in Advanced Mode, in the Image Settings section there should be an option for Calibration (you may have to scroll down in this section to see it). After running the calibration, try performing a preview scan with nothing on the scanner glass. If the red line shows up on the preview now, then most likely the scanner needs to be serviced.

Problem with images


Make sure light does not shine directly on top of the scanner, if light goes in, you will still get lines...
Also: Try aligning the paper on the corner where the arrows are, and close the feeder guides.
