Question about Canon CanoScan 4200F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Pictures scanned with Canon 4200f show streaks

When scanning photos or magazine pages, long vertical streaks appear in the resultant jpg file or print. The streaks appear on screen, so it is not a printer problem. Text scans seem to work OK. I have cleaned the glass bed of the scanner (outside of course), but no change. Any help on how to avoid streaks?? I am using a Canon 4200f scanner and Windows XP SP3.

Thanks
Steve

When scanning photos and especially magazines, don't go to low on the dpi (at least 300) and select DESCREEN as well as grain correction: HIGH

Scan to email problem


Just use it to scan the photo and save it to your hard drive rather than try to email it automatically. Then using Mozilla select the saved file to send it.

Vertical streaks in photo scans


That problem is caused by dust or debris on the scanning "eye" itself. If you are confident in your skills, you can (UNPLUG FIRST) disassemble the scanner and use a microfiber cloth to clear anything on the light bar that scans your documents off.

Hope this was a little helpful,

Try just using the epson scan utility


1. Launch Epson Scan by going into your HARD DRIVE, APPLICATIONS, and EPSON SCAN.
2. If prompted, select your scanner from the list of models and click OK.
3. In the FILE SAVE SETTINGS window, you can designate the location, name and type of file the scans will be saved as.

-LOCATION defaults to HD/USERS/(YOUR USER NAME)/PICTURES. Click CHOOSE if you wish to change this.
-PREFIX determines how the scan will be named. Type any name you like. You can also designate a start number.
-FILE TYPE dictates what format the scans will be saved in. ie. .JPG, .TIFF, .PDF, or .PICT)
-For example: if the prefix is "img", the start number is "1", and the format is "JPG", the name of the file saved in
PICTURES will be "IMG001.JPG"
4. Click OK once settings are changed as desired.
5. The EPSON SCAN window will open and begin scanning in FULL AUTO MODE. In FULL AUTO MODE the software makes all the decisions for you (as to what is being scanned, where it is on the flatbed, etc). This is the easiest way to scan.
6. If you want full control over the scanning process click PAUSE and change FULL AUTO MODE to HOME MODE or PROFESSIONAL MODE. In the latter two modes you can change your scan settings as desired. Click SCAN after you have selected your settings. Click CLOSE once the EPSON SCAN is finished scanning.
7. When scanning is complete, your images will be saved in the location specified on FILE SAVE SETTINGS, with the prefix and in the format you set.

Scanning for video


After the first scan through select the zoom in functionality to just scan the area you want to zoom in. That way the scanned image will be much bigger and better quality.

good luck

You must have 'checked' the multipage option in the scanning software. Try scanning first page only and store as say temp1 and later all pages as temp2. If the file size is different you can deduce that the scanner has scanned all pages! To view multipage files, you need a proper software.

This solution does not work. On MAc there is no way to use this scanner. Canon sucks!!! There was no info about supported os on the box. It is just unfair to sell products without providing drivers for users.

Documents scanned as 256 grey scale/TIFF show up as black pages.


Grey as you know is different shades of black. Uncompressed TIF can store this information. Compressed TIFF is not designed for this. Compressed TIFF is for blck & white only. Try JPG option. JPG can compress Color & Grey. For pure black & white chose TIFF compression.
