Re: getting grey background on documents when copying

If you are getting a grey back ground, this means you have the wrong setting- the scanner is seeing a 'photo' image. look at your controls for TEXT or LINE

Xerox 4150 my paper is a light shade of grey, what can it be thank you


Is the paper a shade of grey with no image? or is there an image with a grey background?
If there is a image with a grey background you should try a new toner module. If that doesn't resolve the issue, clean the xerographic drum, make 10 blank copies, if the cleaning doesn't resolve the issue than install a new xerographic module.

Hope this help.

All of my copies and scans have a yellow background. This does not happen when I print a document directly.

You might be scanning and copying in full color even for regular documents. When you do this, it treats the document as a photograph or color document and therefore, the background, even if white, is scanned in as a bit yellow

I am trying to photocopy some pages of a document in black and white, but the copies come out as colored. what can I do in order to copy only black and white document?

A copy is a copy. you get what it sees.

I think you may be successful in scanning the picture to your hard drive, then print it in grey scale.

Samsung 5935 copies black after changeing main board

Double check your cables/ harness especially to the document scanner section.
If you can print internal test pages ok, without the background, then a part of the document scanner is bad. The document scanner CCD JC96-05207A which is what reads the document.
Also, there is a "shading profile" adjustment, in case you just have a little grey background.

Is there a way to copy a document that has text on a colored piece of paper and have the background show up white and the text show up black instead of the background being grey and the text being black?

If the background color is light (yellow for example) you can probably play with the contrast and density settings to make it better, but otherwise you can't, unfortunately.

Can the copy setting be defaulted to black and white document?

You can set it to B+W but it will revert to its default setting the next time you print.

Printer leaves white vertical lines on document

I dont know what kind of copier you have but white vertical lines are virtually always caused by a dirty charge corona.There is usually a little plastic handle, blue, green or grey, that cleans the charge corona.pull it out ONCE, push it back in and try another copy.If you have an operators manual, it should have instructions for cleaning the charge corona.Good Luck, O'scope

Scanned documents are very light

I have found that when scanning b/w documents, its helpful to start with a black and white copy, not a grayscale, pen written, or printed form a printer in grayscale mode copy, but a true black and white on the copier or fax copy. The scanner doesnt read shades of black so well and when scanning multiple page documents, my pixma tends to scan in lightly. I havent found a piece of software to do just this, batch darken what has been scanned (at least not for free). Copying before scanning is the work around. Hope this helps everyone who's had this problem. It also doesnt hurt to darken what your scanning down a notch when copying
