Question about HP ScanJet 8270 Flatbed Scanner
I am trying to scan forms that we have used. The problem is that the sheets are blue and yellow, and when we scan it, the paper comes out just a dark color without the typing/writing being legible. Please help!
First thing to try is just play with all the scan settings to see what gives you the best result - try changing resolutions, type of document, type of output document, contrast, brightness, type of scan. If this doesn't give you any better results, then one of the best ways to do this is to get some plastic sheet of the same or almost the same as the predominant colour on your forms (you can go one step further and make a multi coloured filter if you are feeling creative and your forms are all identical). The text jumps out of the page and most scanners will give you a good scan - just make sure the filter is not too thick/dark. Hope this helps :)
