All areas outside of the document will be black only. I don't know how you were getting white background.
If you want white background around your scanned image, a) stick the check (in this example) onto a white paper and scan the whole sheet. Ensure double detection is off. b) You can also do this in software, by cropping a larger area outside the scanned image.
There are many options to view the scanned image like Actual size or Fit or Fit vertically or Fit width. The same image will appear different in each case.
On OCR software we can only scan a full text documents. Document that doesn't have any line, image, graphic. Try to scan a full text document and check if that will work.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks
Most scanners aren't designed to scan negatives. (Of course the manufactures would never want to tell you their product CANT do something).
Flatbed scanners typically have a light on one side.
To scan negatives properly, you need to have a scanner that has a backlight, or a second light in the bed's lid that you fold down.
Canon USA, Inc. make a few flatbed scanners that have backlights. They range from $60 to $180, depending on the features and resolution you want to pay for.
Please see the below link. This is a more expensive one, but is shown just so you get the idea. In the pictures, note specifically in the picture that shows the lid open, how the white backing on the lid can be removed from a clip at the top. Underneath, is the backlight and clips designed to hold negatives in with the included frames.
Hello Lucie, From your brief description it sounds like the Scanner Lamp is faulty/blown do you see a bright light that travel up the bed of the glass under the lid when closed if open be careful as very bright if it comes on when scanning. If you do then you may need to reload the driver for the scanner. Good Luck! Paul 'W' Onyer~EDson(:0)~[>< U.K.
Have had the same problem, seems to come and go a bit... Quickest & easiest fix is to go to CanoScan toolboox > Settings then press the 'defauls' button at bottom... this sets everything back to factory settings and should fix your problem. Cheers.
