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

Hello I just figuered out this problem. When the paper is feed thru the ADF ( Automatic Document Feeder ) there is a plastic piece with a plastic film. Check to see if #1 that plastic film is clean and #2 That the Film is not bent and created a crease which is the line that shows when try to print or scan using the ADF. Hope this helps

Are printed pages clean?
If so, clean the narrow strip of glass on the left side of the main scan glass.
If printed pages are dirty as well, then probably a defective toner cartridge -replace

*please rate me:)

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

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.
