Question about Epson Perfection V700 PHOTO Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

When I scan colour slides the image gets cropped

I lose one side of the slide. Is there a way to adjust the location of the scanned image. Is there some sort of calibration.

    I have the same problem. Also, the slides do not scan in the same order as they are in the holder.



    I called technical support and they have no answers. I have an Apple computer, so they told me to try it with a PC. Same problem.



    It is still under warranty, so they suggested I take it in for repair.

Uncheck the option that says "Thumbnail" and draw individual marquees for the area on the slide you want to scan. Not very elegant but it works.

My scanner sometimes crops a particular slide but not others. Some scan ok. What is going on?


Be sure to put the slide in the holder in the proper direction. The opening in the slide holder is rectangular, not square like the slide. If you place the slide in the holder horizontally and the holder window is vertical, it will crop off the sides of your picture.

Scanning slides produces black images. Slide


Make sure the white document matt from uner the lid has been removed. Also in Epson scan make sure you have changed the document type from reflective to Film and Colour positive.

Using epson v500 and can't get it to change the document size under image type in professional mode according to manual. scanning old B&W negatives 2 x 2 in size and it cuts off the image most of the time...


I had the same problem and have found my answer. I don't know if it's the technically correct one but it works.
When you open the scan page and it shows you the mode, setting, original document type, destination, adjustments, and then the preview and scan buttons. Under the Preview button you will see a box check marked for thumbnail. Remove the check and then do a preview scan. You should end up with a complete scan showing the slide (if you only scanned one), the open side and the surrounding blackened area too. Click on the picture in the preview and then draw an outline around the part of the picture that you want to use. Do this just like it you were going to do cropping of the photo. Once you have the box around the part you want click on zoom. Your next preview will be the picture that you want. I haven't figured out how to remove the remaining blackened area with out going into a photo edit program but it must be able to be done. Then you can scan to where ever you save them to and have the whole slide. I hope that this gets you at least some what further along.

Slide scanning with Epson Perfection 2450


I don't know if this is truly a "solution" or not, but I get the same thing on my HP 4850 scans. After scanning, I just crop the pictures to remove the black borders. Can you do that?

Scanned 35mm slide comes out as rectangle with dark edges


I've not ever seen "square" 35mm slides. By definition they are a rectangular positive film in an outer square "mount".

If you have a truly square piece of film then it is not a 35mm slide. You may have to use settings other than those for a 35mm film but these would be I don't know.

When were they taken (approximately)? What brand of film? Are they in a cardboard "mount?

Epson 3490 does not find the slide I put in the correctly positioned provided frame


Please do the following to scan slides or negatives in manual mode of the Epson TWAIN:
For scanning transparencies in HOME mode - for EPSON SCAN models, not Epson Twain/Manual mode models.
1) In the program you are working from, begin the scanning process. If working in FULL AUTO MODE as the scan begins click PAUSE or CANCEL, then change "Full Auto Mode" to "Home Mode".
2) You will now see all Epson Scan settings displayed. If the scanner has not previewed automatically, click the large preview button to get a visual of what is on the scanner.
3) Ensure the settings on the Epson Scan are correct for what you wish to scan. For example, the DOCUMENT TYPE for transparencies must be either "Color negative film", "B&W Negative Film" or "Positive film"*.
* FILM here indicates that the item being scanned is transparent to light; this setting is also used for slide scanning. Positive indicates that the image is in true colors (ie the grass is green and sky is blue), whereas negative indicates reversed colors, as produced in some photo finishing processes.)
If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is set for a flatbed related option, ie PHOTO, the scanner is looking for reflective items and will not activate the backlight in the transparency unit. If the DOCUMENT TYPES for "FILM" are greyed out or cannot be selected, close the Epson Scan, reseat the power/communication cable connecting the base of the scanner to the transparency unit, then reopen Epson Scan and try again.
NOTE for PROFESSIONAL MODE users: DOCUMENT TYPE should read TRANSPARENCY for film scans.
4) Ensure the other scanner settings are correct for the type of scan you are doing. For example:
IMAGE TYPE should be color photo for all positive or negative color transparencies, or BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO for monochrome transparencies.
DESTINATION is unimportant, however you should select a RESOLUTION appropriate to what you plan to do with the scans. (There are no hard and fast rules for DPI. As a general guideline, if you are saving scans at original size, a resolution ranging from 400-600 DPI should capture enough information to faithfully record the image. If the slide or negative will be enlarged, you will need to increase this DPI accordingly. We have no means to calculate what your exact needs will be in this situation; you will need to experiment and view the output to gauge the appropriate input DPI from the scanner.)
PREVIEW. If your scanner is doing a THUMBNAIL PREVIEW, the slides will automatically preview and appear in boxes on the left side. Here, you can select or deselect the slides you wish to scan.
If you recieve a message that the scanner could not find the film, or you see in the preview that part of the scan is cut off, click the down arrow next to the large PREVIEW button and click NORMAL, then PREVIEW again. In NORMAL PREVIEW mode, the scanner will capture all information on the flatbed; you will then have to manually marquee or crop the slides you wish to scan. Use the left mouse button (click, hold, drag) to lasso one slide inside a box made of dotted lines, then click scan. Only the selected area will scan. Repeat this process for as many slides or filmstrips are on the bed.
5) Click CLOSE once scanning is complete. The images will now transfer to the application in use.

Please do the following to scan slides or negatives in manual mode of the Epson TWAIN:
1) In the program you are working from, begin the scanning process. If working in full auto mode, as the scan begins you will see a message that reads TO CANCEL SCANNING IN FULL AUTO MODE AND SWITCH TO MANUAL MODE, CLICK CANCEL. At this point, click CANCEL, then MANUAL MODE.
2) You will now see all Epson Twain settings displayed. If the scanner has not previewed automatically, click the full page preview button (icon of a paper with one corner folded down).
3) Ensure the settings on the right hand side of the Twain are correct. For example, the DOCUMENT SOURCE for transparencies must be either TPU: COLOR NEGATIVE FILM, TPU: MONOCHROME NEG or TPU: POSITIVE FILM.
FILM here indicates that the item being scanned is transparent to light; this setting is also used for slide scanning. Positive indicates that the image is in true colors (ie the grass is green and sky is blue), whereas negative indicates reversed colors, as produced in some photo finishing processes. (If you are scanning a black and white slide in true colors, choose TPU: POSITIVE FILM as the DOCUMENT SOURCE and BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO as the IMAGE TYPE.)
If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is flatbed, the scanner will not activate the backlight in the transparency unit. If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is greyed out and you cannot select a TPU option, close the twain, reseat the power/communication cable connecting flatbed to TPU, then re-open the twain and try again.
4) Ensure the other twain settings are correct for the type of scan you are doing.
IMAGE TYPE should be color photo for all positive or negative color transparencies, or BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO for monochrome transparencies.
DESTINATION is unimportant, however you should select a RESOLUTION appropriate to what you plan to do with the scans. (There are no hard and fast rules for DPI. As a general guideline, if you are saving scans at original size, a resolution ranging from 400-600 DPI should capture enough information to faithfully record the image. If the slide or negative will be enlarged, you will need to increase this DPI accordingly. We have no guidelines on this; you will need to experiment and view the output to gauge the appropriate input DPI from the scanner.)
PREVIEW. If your scanner is doing an AUTOMATIC THUMBNAIL PREVIEW, the slides will automatically preview and appear in boxes on the left side. Here, you can select or deselect the slides you wish to scan.
If you recieve a message that the scanner could not find the film, click the CONFIGURATION button and uncheck AUTOMATIC THUMBNAIL PREVIEW FOR FILM, then OK, and try the PREVIEW button (page with corner folded down) again.
In this mode, you will have to manually marquee or crop the slides you wish to scan. Use the left mouse button to lasso one slide inside a box made of dotted lines, then click scan. Only the selected area will scan. Repeat this process (manually crop then scan) for as many slides or filmstrips are on the bed.
5) Click CLOSE once scanning is complete. The images will now transfer to the application in use.
