Had the same on my Epson Perfection 1650. I was about to throw it out but decided to take a look inside. Unscrewed and took the top off (with glass bed), then unscrewed the area that houses the scanner light and a set of three mirrors, cleaned with a lens brush the mirrors although did not see any more than one spec. Put it all back together and now it works great. not sure what I fixed, but it IS fixed. may have been put together badly in the factory as this problem happened soon after purchase. I may have knock something out of place at some point. Anyway you may be lucky too!

My scanner hp3570c has developed this problem since some time now, it scans but the white background is always in some megenta tone and the mater appears in green and blue. please advice what the problem...


you need to depress the original onto the scanner it could be the scanner is not fully resting on the flat surface, or not fully closed, say for example there is a big gap on the scanner and the white plate, try scanning a single sheet only and see if you have the same prob. i assume you are scanning a book or thick material or something, the colored images you see is the reflection of the scanner that goes astray from the actual images that needs to be scanned, the light that was exposed without the white plate reflected was converted into Green and Blue, pls try .

Xerox Documate 152 - Scan quality is now V.BAD!


I would go to Xerox.com and look up their knowledge base. Here is a copy of data from their site related to this problem:

Symptom: Scanned images have poor image quality, are fuzzy, unclear, or hard to read.
Cause: There are several things that can lead to poor image quality including the scan settings, dirt on the scanner, and driver problems. Solution: Note: If you scan as a PDF file and your scans look fuzzy when viewed in PaperPort, try right clicking on the file and selecting "Open" to open them in Adobe Reader. If they display fine in Adobe Reader then there is nothing wrong with the scans, it is simply that they are not being displayed well in PaperPort.

The following solutions can help resolve poor scan quality.

Solution 1 - Adjust the scan settings

Try increasing the resolution of your scan. 300 dpi to 400 dpi should be clear for most images
  • If you are scanning in Black and White, try Grayscale or Color. Some images will not display correctly in Black and White
  • You can also try adjusting the brightness and contrast
  • Note: For information on adjusting your scan settings, refer to the user guide for your scanner
Solution 2 - Clean and Calibrate the scanner

Note: Calibration only applies to sheetfed scanners.

Use the link below for instructions on cleaning and calibrating (if applicable) your scanner:
Solution 3 - Reinstall the scanner driver Select a link below for instructions on reinstalling your scanner driver:

Faulty scanned images


Pls check your color Scan settings. Generally there will be some color difference between the original and scanned Image because, the original is 'reflected light' whereas, the scanned image is a 'source light' on the monitor. The monitor setting can also affect the color output. S. Mohan

Scanned image only prints in black and white


it's tricky / annoying:

you have a preview ...
you have some of the (3) images checked
but also you have some of these images selected (blue outline)

now:
when you select (I don't mean the checking) an image you'll have to set the scanning params
again - or check them ...

if you select an image, and then set the params (like "color"), your scanned image will be in color

....
also resolution is the same way ..
especially after crating preview .. it'll be set to 300 Dpi
so after seecting one for scanning - check the resolution too :)

Green layer on scanned image from ADF Simplex


What model of scanner are you using? Is it white light based or RGB LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). Very rarely it may happen that the Red and Blue LEDs are not glowing may be because of loose contact, but this very rare occurence. Try reloading driver software.
