Scaning documents Can anyone help Ihave to scan many documents, scaning faxes are not a problem but scaning letters that have been folded in envelopes are, scaner tends to pick up the folds in the paper as a result I have dark lines across the document which does not very look good. I thought it might need cleaning but faxes scan clearly so this can not be the case Thanks

Re: scaning documents

Try and alter the contrast settings. If the scanner does not pick up 'data' including folds, you'd blame it for non-performance!

Can you also Fax with this One Touch 8900 ?

This is only a scanner. To Fax, you will need a separate fax machine or fax modem. If both the scanner and fax machine are connected to your computer, you will be able to scan the document and then fax it from the computer. (Depending on your OS/software, this could be easy or take several steps. For Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can use Windows Fax and Scan to do both steps. (However, the program doesn't scan to PDFs.) Paperport will also send a scanned document to an installed fax option. PaperPort is part of the third-party software that came on the CD with the scanner.)

Documentation for the Visioneer OneTouch 8900 is available here: .

I hope this helps.

(There are some email-to-fax and web-to-fax options but I have not reviewed them.)

I'm having trouble scanning B&W documents with my Epson V300. The edges of the letters in the text are jagged and hard to read and there is what appears to be a crease or fold in the document when the...

You have two options for scanning text. You may explore both of them and see which is better for you. Either way, you will have to make friends with manually changing the scanning settings, because simple presets often are not suited for every case.

First is to use Grayscale mode, and a minimum resolution of 200dpi. This should give you satisfactory text quality. If you want to print the text afterwards, 300dpi would be even better. You may want to increase contrast, to get the letters more defined and eliminate most of the background toning.

Second is to use Black and White (monochrome) mode, but in this case you need to set the resolution higher, preferrably to 600dpi. Also in this case you will have to play with the Black/White threshold in order to eliminate background "dirt" appearing as black artefacts.

If you scan the documents in order to process them with OCR software, usually the OCR application will give you suggestions on how to set the scanning parameters to obtain good results.

Black line in the middle of the output - scaned document


A black line down a scanned page indicates a dirty scan glass. Lift the top of you scanner like you would putting a page or book down to scan. On the end of the scanner that has the document feeder you should see a thin piece of glass the is separate from the larger glass pane. This is the document feeder glass. Now check it over for a very small mark of ink or dirt. You can use regular glass cleaner to wipe this glass just spray it on a piece of cloth not the scanner then wipe. You may have to wipe and then try scanning several times if the ink or marker is died on. while you are cleaning you should also clean the main glass pane, it will make the scans clearer and crisper.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Letter size document scans as legal size document

This is software setting issue. Just check your settings, if a 'default' button is available in the software, press it and then select your required settings. Some softwares dont accept the new settings unless the 'default' is pressed.

Line appears on all scanned documents. Scaning window & rollers have been cleaned.

Do the lines appear in the same location on all images? Please clean the glass with isopropyl alcohol.IF the lines are crisp and sharp at the edges on all levels of contrast, then it is module problem. If it varies depending upon the contrast chosen and is also with jaggered edges, it is dust stuck on the glass. Dont use solvents.

Acrobat 8.1

Upgrade to Acobat 9.0 Pro. It seems to work in that can scan pages for a document, HOWEVER, adding/appending to already scaned pages for a document seems to crash 9.0. For example, say I scan in pages 1 - 4. I cannot then scan pages 5 -6 as part of the same document--crashes Acrobat.

I think this finally proves the problem is Acrobat 8.0 and NOT the i40 drivers.

Scanner problem

Try scanning a double sided document in duplex mode. Reverse the page and scan again. Make sure contrast/rightness settings are okay. If one side output is still not okay, then it possible that the lighting has failed. Either loose contact or failure of the lamp. Some scanners have LEDs and some have a lamp.
