Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Flatbed Scanner

Yellow streak through color image scan

When I scan color, it doesn't matter where I position the item to scan, I get a yellow streak through the scan. The streak is so bad that I can even adjust or tone it out of my photo. The scanner is an Epson Perfection 3490 Photo scanner, only 2 years old. It used to work great. Can you tell me what is wrong and how to approach fixing it? Thanks so much.

Crysti Esper I've been using the CanoScan 8400F for a few years with no problems.  Suddenly I started getting a yellow streak down the right side of the page on all color scans.  It seems to be getting larger.  I've emailed Cannon, but so far to no avail

Red and yellow streaks appear in scans, always in the same location. The scanner was cleaned but the repair person could not find any problem with the equipment. Yet the streaks persist. How do I resolve...


execute a calibration to correct the wrong color:
  1. place your photo on the scanner, with a distance of 0.25 inch from the edge of the glass
  2. open Epson scan and select Professionnal Mode
  3. select the document source
  4. select the image type
  5. uncheck thumbnail then click Prevew
  6. crop the area of the image
  7. Click zoom to fine tune the area you see the streaks
  8. select the resolution of 72 dpi
  9. scan your photo

if the problem still not solved, you need to change the scanner unit , there are many dead pixels.

Faulty scanned images


Pls check your color Scan settings. Generally there will be some color difference between the original and scanned Image because, the original is 'reflected light' whereas, the scanned image is a 'source light' on the monitor. The monitor setting can also affect the color output. S. Mohan

I620 scanner


Is the scanner scanning normally otherwise? Try scanning a printed matter with white background and if it is okay, then the streaking may be because of excess brightness chosen. Check if the paper movement is at constant speed. If it is smooth paper, it may slip and the same area may scanned again, appearing like a streak.
