Canon 2080C scanner software causing monitor issues

Every time I install the "capture perfect" software for my Canon 2080C scanner an hour later the monitor starts getting wavy lines through it. I have changed the monitor. Same results. I have tried the 'bad' monitor on another computer and it's fine. I have connected the scanner to a different computer with the same software. The wavy lines appear again. Any info or help is appreciated.

I hava a canon dr-2010c scanner. but when I scan the paper through capture touch 2.0 than scanning very fine but when I scan through capture perfect 3.0 than show black page scanning.

Normally it is advisable to use only one Scanning Software. The software has various files which may overwrite the previously installed version. The later version works good.

It is also possible that the brightness/contrast settings in Captureperfect 3 is not proper. Try scanning after altering these.

I recently set up a new DELL optilplex 760. When I go to install my Canon DR-2080c I get an error stating "Device Not Found". I've uninstalled and reinstalled many times but still no luck. Can anyone help...

Have you installed device driver? It is just not enough if you install scanning software. Also trya different USB port o a different USB cable.

If you go to the Canon Support site for this scanner they have a firmware upgrade that seems to specifically address this problem:

I have a canon DR-9080c that gives me a PAFCV2.DLL load error

I have resolved this in the past and a new user just brought it up again.

The pafcv2.dll in Captureperfect 2 does not seem to work. If you install CapturePerfect 3 and copy the pafcv2.dll into captureperfect (c:\program files\canon electronics\captureperfect2 or whatever install path you used), you will find that you can now scan into PDF, even in batches!

CANON 2080c scanner not scanning bottom quarter inch of page

Check your scan settings. If you have chosen A4 and the paper is slightly bigger, this can happen. It is also possible when the scanner does not pick up the paper in the first attempt because it is worn out. In such an event, you may find a blank on the top of the image. Clean the rollers with a damp cloth. Dont use solvents.

Missing the disc

Well the good news is you don't have to pick up a disc :-) . You can actually download the driver for the scanner here (the driver is the software that allows the computer to see the scanner)

On that page you want the second one down (2080INF.exe)

Here is what you are going to need to do:

  1. Download that file
  2. Double Click on the file and then hit "Run" followed by "Unzip"
  3. Click the "Start" button
  4. Click "Control Panel"
  5. Double Click "Scanners & Camera's"
  6. On the left menu (it is the blue menu on the left) select "Add Imaging Device"
  7. A wizard will now come up , click "next"
  8. It will now ask what kind of scanner/camera you want to install, on the bottom right is a button that reads "Have Disk" ; click that
  9. Hit "Browse"
  10. Navigate to the folder where you un-zipped the original download to. By default it went to "C:/DR208C/INF" - In that folder you will see a file named "CANODR2K" , double click it.
  11. Hit "Ok"
  12. Select how it is connected (USB or SCSI)
  13. Finish the wizard
And thats it! Now your scanner is installed on the computer and you can scan......

Also on the original CD is a software called "Capture Perfect" , which is the software that is used for actually scanning with your scanner , you can download that here:
