Question about Microtek SCANMAKER 4850 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Horizontal Banding When I use the preview screen for scanning an image it is filled with horizontal banding which then, in turn, shows on the image when opened in Photoshop. Any idea what the cause and fix is? Thanks.

    I had the banding problem and my power supply was bad that plugged into the wall. A diode had gone bad in the supply. Once the supply was repaired, the banding went away.... Now I have upgraded to Vista and can't find an updated driver for my 4850.....

From the Microtek KB: www.microtek.com Scans that produce lines, fading, and discoloration generally result from a corrupt scanner driver installation or a burned out lamp. To determine if your problem is caused by a burned out lamp, simply open the scanner lid and check the color of the lamp. If the color is a shade of red, pink, or green, then the lamp is burned out. Perform a scanner preview to get a clear view of the lamp. If the lamp is a bright white and the problem still exists, please contact technical support.

My scanner copies have a vertical yellow streak covering half the page. What can I do to solve the problem ?


Lines or Banding Within the Image

If the scanner is generating lines or banding within the image during preview and/or scan, below is a list of possible solutions.

Horizontal Lines: If the lines run horizontally throughout the image, it is almost definitely interference of some kind. First thing to try is reverse the cable (Astra series only, except for 2400S), trying with and without termination as well. It could also be the SCSI card itself that is causing the interference. Try reseating it in a different slot, away from other cards. Try moving the scanner itself to another location, farther away from computer components such as monitors and CPUs. If none of that works, search for the file ?prescan.dib? on the hard disk and delete it, then try the scan again. If that still doesn?t work, follow the clean uninstall and safe mode install of our software. If these troubleshooting steps do not work, it could be a physical defect within the cable that?s generating extra interference, and the cable should be replaced. If the cable has been replaced already, it may be the UDS-IS11 itself generating the interference from being defective. Replace it.

Vertical Lines: If the lines run vertically throughout the image, it is probably a hardware problem, most likely with the scanner itself. However, follow the cable-reversing instructions above, remove the ?prescan.dib? file, and try the scan again. Often, if they are thin lines they are from dust within the optics. Open the case and blow out the dust with compressed air.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

Mitsubishi hc1500 banding


If you're using the VGA port, you'll see the banding because it's not really showing 720p, it's doing scaling (I'm not sure from what resolutions it's scaling). So, even though you're using VGA at 1280x720, the scaling is still going on and it's showing the banding.

You have to use HDMI to get true 720p.
