I cannot calibrate the Canon LBP 5000 color printer. The option is grayed out. I have the same problem. Please send me an e-mail to ali.ayash@yahoo.com when you get the solution.

Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Canon 9080c unable to select scan ahead unless logged in as Admin

Try in install captureperfect in Admin mode and give full rights and select the setting you want. Log off and get into user mode and try Captureperfect. This can work. If there are not too many variations in settings required, the best is to select Autocontrast option, but you may get a samll black patch on the top.

SOURCE: Calibration cannot be performed Error

I had the same problem when upgrading to mac os x. I was trying to scan directly from Photoshop but got the calibration message. I tried the two solutions given at the Canon website but they didn't work. I ended up downloading the Toolbox application to scan directly from there but the same message appeared. After installing the Toolbox application I unistalled the driver (11250) and reinstalled it. I opened Photoshop and tried scanning and the calibration window appeared only this time it didn't stop to give me the "Flim Adapter" warning. I must point that the scanner lid was open when this happend but I'm not sure that had anything to do with it.

So apparently it works if you have the Toolbox installed prior to installing the driver. The driver, Toolbox application and unistall driver can be found at Canon's website. Hope this helps.

Ciao!

I can't figure out how to scan something. The Wand turns on, but it won't start scanning. I even tried the white balance calibration?


Hi Karen,

Do you have a micro scan disk inserted? The scanner will not work without one. Insert the disk in the slot next to the Format button. Turn the unit on then press the format button to format the disk. To scan a document, you press the scan buttton once, then release the button. Slowly move the wand over the document to be scanned. When you have finished scanning, press the scan button once again.

Hope this helps,

Marcus

When I scan a document to my computer it comes with blue background


This is usually caused by the white balance being on manual instead of automatic. You can correct it on the scanning applet control panel (varies depending on your driver OS and version), or after acquisition in whatever program you use to manipulate the image.

Also (rarer) it could be caused by a yellowing of the automatic white balance calibration strip which is under the glass, near the scanning head homing position.

Xerox Documate 152 - Scan quality is now V.BAD!


I would go to Xerox.com and look up their knowledge base. Here is a copy of data from their site related to this problem:

Symptom: Scanned images have poor image quality, are fuzzy, unclear, or hard to read.
Cause: There are several things that can lead to poor image quality including the scan settings, dirt on the scanner, and driver problems. Solution: Note: If you scan as a PDF file and your scans look fuzzy when viewed in PaperPort, try right clicking on the file and selecting "Open" to open them in Adobe Reader. If they display fine in Adobe Reader then there is nothing wrong with the scans, it is simply that they are not being displayed well in PaperPort.

The following solutions can help resolve poor scan quality.

Solution 1 - Adjust the scan settings

Try increasing the resolution of your scan. 300 dpi to 400 dpi should be clear for most images
  • If you are scanning in Black and White, try Grayscale or Color. Some images will not display correctly in Black and White
  • You can also try adjusting the brightness and contrast
  • Note: For information on adjusting your scan settings, refer to the user guide for your scanner
Solution 2 - Clean and Calibrate the scanner

Note: Calibration only applies to sheetfed scanners.

Use the link below for instructions on cleaning and calibrating (if applicable) your scanner:
Solution 3 - Reinstall the scanner driver Select a link below for instructions on reinstalling your scanner driver:

Scanner Error


Some electronic equipment such as printers and scanners need to be "calibrated".

I recommend you follow the directions and allow the Scanner to calibrate. This may result in better scans and for printers, better printouts.

CanoScan Scanner can not complete a scan


Double-check all connections and try another port if possible. There may also be damage to cables or pins. Do you have another cable to try? Do other devices work in the same port?

Scan coming in all black with DocketPort 485


The first thing that you should try is to calibrate the scanner. If you don't have the calibration paper you can use a blank white 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. This should clear it up. If it fails calibration after repeated tries you most likely have broken the lens or the image sensor is no longer working. If that is the case then there isn't much you can do i would suggest contacting the manufacturer and hoping that unit is still in warranty.
