Question about Canon DR-9080C Path-Through Scanner

1 Answer

Documents scanned as 256 grey scale/TIFF show up as black pages.

I am trying to scan several documents through our Canon DR9080 scanner. They include test and images and we are trying to use 256 grey scale as a TIFF image. When scanned using a TIFF compression the pages appear completly black when view in any program other than Capture Perfect 3.0. When I remove the compression (which makes the file way too big), the scanned pages appear fine. Please help

Grey as you know is different shades of black. Uncompressed TIF can store this information. Compressed TIFF is not designed for this. Compressed TIFF is for blck & white only. Try JPG option. JPG can compress Color & Grey. For pure black & white chose TIFF compression.

Tray lifts to meet the rollers then drops back down. Error message 'No page was found in the feeder'


Clean the 'black dot' in the centre of the paper tray. There is an optical sensor under that. The tray will lift even without paper, but will go back immediately.
If the scanner stops after 3 pages, check disk space in your computer. If you are scanning in TIFF uncompressed, it takes lot of space. For color and Grey try JPG format, for mono TIFF G4 is the ideal option.

You are scanning the pages in OCR (Optical Character Recognition) mode. This allows scanned text to be converted to (editable) text, and is more useful when scanning to a Word document for example.

If you just want to scan a page and archive it, look for a standard (non-OCR) scanning option, and specify PDF as the output format. If it's not available, you can just as well keep the pages in TIFF format, which also allows for multiple pages.
Also, if you have MS Office, there's MS Document Imaging tool included, that allows you to scan to MDI multi-page documents.

If however you want the page OCRed, I don't know which software is included with your scanner, but generally you must investigate the OCR settings to find an option to scan a page with text and images, instead of text only.
Some OCRs require you to select areas that contain text, leaving the rest as pictures, other do it automatically.
If you cannot make friends with your software that's bundled with the device, I would suggest looking for FineReader. Even an older version of FineReader is far superior to any other OCR software I've seen.
Good luck

I have installed scanner and disc but cannot find how to use it.I found the test box and that works but now how do I scan?thanks


Canon and other Scanners have both hardware and software buttons to scan documents and photographs.
Scanning with a computer is done with a destination in mind. So the buttons and the software are associated with destinations.
Typical destinations are File, email, Application, and print.
In a simple scan process for copy or print, the item is placed face down on the scanner, then the print button is pressed on the front of the scanner.
The software for the scanner pops up on the screen and the scanner moves the imaging light across the scanner under the glass, reading the item on the scanner. The software sends the image to the default printer and it prints a copy.

You will need to setup your preferences in the software so that a photograph is scanned properly and a newspaper article is scanned to come out clear black and white.
Documents are best saved as PDF files and photographs as TIFF files.
The software will have an expert mode where you can change all the settings and a beginner mode where you let the software decide.
Canon has a great document for your scanner. If it is not on the disk, here is the link. It is called CanoScan 4200F Scanning Guide. I think it will help you to use the scanner for any task.

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

Scanning


You'll need a scanner with an automatic document feeder (ADF).

Here's a Microsoft article on scanning documents, including scanning multiple documents info one file.

I hope this helps.

Grayblue Background on scans


A color scan will give real output as it is. If the background is grey, the output will also be grey. If you select 256 Color output, there may be small change in color, as compared to the original. If you select grey output, all colors will be converted to Grey. If these files are converted to PDF, it will be same, except in ODF format.

If you select B&W you can save the file in TIFF format. Unlike grey or color, each pixel can be either black or white only. To scan in black and white you must select right brightness. By doing os you can eliminate background (technically noise) and capture foreground(data)
