In your printer menu there should be a option for cleaning the printer heads. if not you need to remove the cartrages and clean yourself with rubbing alcohol. also clean off the cartrages also.this should get rid of the saturation problem.let me know if this helped.

When we scan a drawing, we get a green background.


Try scanning with different software, such as MSOffice Photo Editor. It could be the scanner TWAIN settings or the app that you are scanning with.

Bad contrast with scanner


Last things first: NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.

That's the way HP does things. There are no rheostats or pots to adjust. It's all done electronically now, with chips and things.

You never said how it does with color or greyscale photos or drawings.

As for the RGB=(64,64,64), that's about right for the scan picture settings and the mixed (text and graphics) setting, and is particularly true for color picture settings. Have you tried using the setting for drawings (or line art), specifically greyscale drawings? Usually the greyscale lineart or drawing setting will render black text. You might also try scanning with the settings set for Text. If the greyscale drawing settings or greyscale text settings do not produce black text, try reinstalling your software and drivers.

If the contrast stays the same for all settings after reinstalling the software and drivers, and if it doesn't scan color and greyscale pictures correctly, then it sounds like your scanner is going bad.

As for the scans you've already done, you can darken the text by taking it into a photo editor, such as Paint Shop Pro or Photo Shop, and adjust the contrast and brightness to get the effect you desire.

I've had a similar problem with the streaks, lines and color bleeds appearing in the scan. Try uninstalling the all software and drivers for the scanner and reinstall. Worked for me. Have had to do this a couple of times since I've owned the scanner... about three to four years now.

Out of Focus Scans


You have some limited color adjustment settings in ScanGear that you can play around with. I would recommend recalibrating the scanner. This is done in ScanGear Advanced mode under Image Settings.
