Question about Canon CanoScan 9950F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanned image has a line running through it

I have scanned flat artwork and photos on my CanoScan for almost a year and a half and have always gotten great results. Just today, my scanned image had a verticle green line running through it. I scanned another image and again a green line was running though the scan in the same location. The line looks like it is one pixel in width. I'm hoping you have a solution to this problem. Thank you.

Re: Scanned image has a line running through it

This could be one faulty sensor pixel or a speck of dirt on the scanner bar. It might be worth opening the scanner and carefully dusting the bar with a camera cleaner aerosol.

Actually you do have to select a program for working with photographs such as Photoshop, or Adobe Elements, maybe Microsoft Paint or Picasa maybe. Then your scanner will scan and the pictures will be saved and they'll be opened in the photo program you have chosen afterwards.

Black and white photos from many years ago now have a blue-green hue on them when they are scanned. it started after I scanned old slides.

Did you make changes to the scan type when you scanned the slides? It sounds like you have the scanner set to do a negative image as a slide would need.
Check the preferences for the scan type.
The scanning manual is available on Canon's Website.

Printing text on pictures not scanned by canoscan lide 25.

You have to use a graphics application to do this. The LiDE 25 came with ArcSoft PhotoStudio that will allow you to apply text to your images.

Which program do i use to transfer the scanned image too?


Sounds like the CanoScan is looking for a photo enhancing/utility program. Programs for this purpose are Adobe PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro, ACDSee, or even the simple Windows Paint.

Additionally, the CanoScan Toolbox might have a basic photo utility program. Normally basic photo utility programs like this are included in the CD installer of a scanner, a digicam or even most color printers.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
