Check your software settings. Is your black & white scanning okay? If this is fine, then it must be your settings.

    Same problem here installing onto Windows 7 32 bit, the answer is to disable DCR Color Correction in Scanwizard Pro 7.10 which runs fine in XP and W7. This is enabled by default in preferences but you likely don't have DCR installed. Worked for me.

How to have white background on small documents

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.

I am trying to scan slides with Epson Perfection V500 Photo...I placed the slides in properly and press the scan button on the scanner. It scans the row of slides as they appear on the scanner bed. But...

You have to have the plastic slide holder (positioner) placed perfectly. Look at the "A" and "C" tabs on the plastic holder. If they don't position your slides over the center of the glass, you are using the wrong tab! Slides have to be back-lit, which is what the top cover does. It doesn't light up the sides of the scanner glass, only the middle.

Why would the scanner be scan very LIGHT? I have it set at the highest dpi but after scanning on grayscale and black and white, they are very light in color and can barely read.

If you have your scanner set to "text/photo", or anything other than just 'text", the visual quality will come out lite in appearance.

Hope this helps. :)

I want to scan a photo to my computer with " Hp deskjet F4240 all -in-one"??

Open the lid on the HP scanner to reveal the scanning surface. Tthe scanning surface is the glass surface on which documents are placed for scanning.
  • Step 2 Put the picture face down on the scanning surface, using the positioning mark to set the picture. The positioning mark is normally an arrow and it indicates the correct placement of a document on the scanning surface for a good scan.
  • Step 3 Close the lid on the HP scanner.
  • Step 4 Press the "Scan To" button on the HP scanner and choose a format for the scan. "Scan to File" or "Scan to Email" are a couple of the choices. Press "OK" and your scan will begin. On your computer screen, a progress bar will let you know how your scan is going. Once the scan is complete, the folder where the file was scanned will appear on screen and you can click on it to ensure the quality of the scan.

    Balck band on the screen when scanning

    If black bands are appearing on all documents your scanning then yes you have to get a new scanner. Main board inside of the scanner is going bad and you can't buy spare parts for scanners.

    The other thing you can check just to be sure. When the scanner is scanning the light will go all the way to one side and then move all the way to the other side. Look at the light and see if it stays on the whole way when its moving from side to to side, if it does then the main board is bad, if it doesn't then it could be a faulty scanner light and that you maybe able to replace depending on how old the scanner is. Best thing at that point would be to google your scanner and see if that spare lamp is available.
