Scanner making annoying drag lines

When I scan images they come up with big drag lines that are lighter/darker than the original image going all the way down (I can clone stamp them out in photoshop, but it is so annoying and time consuming. I hope this doesn't mean that I have to get a new scanner.). any ideas of why this is happening or how to fix the problem?

Hello I have recently purchased a second-hand CanoScan LiDE 25 scanner and it was accompanied by OmniPage SE Software. The reason for this purchase was to scan research papers for a friend. My experience...


Don't use the OmniPage software for scanning. OmniPage is an OCR (optical character recognition) program and is trying to convert the scan into a document compatible with a text editor (such as Microsoft Word). Use a graphics editing program, and use the option to 'Import' or 'Acquire' an image. Make sure that the LiDE 25 is specified as the scanner, and you should be linked to the scanner interface. Now when the scan is complete, it will be transferred to the graphics editor as an image, not a document.

Black line on image


It's possible that the black lines you're experiencing are an internal image adjustment issue with the scanner itself. If the scanner glass is otherwise clean, try going to the Canon DR2050/2080 utilities installed as part of the set up of your scanner and running the Adjustment Tool - it asks you to place the "adjustment paper" in the scanner. The term, "adjustment paper," appears to mean anything which has an image or text on it. Be sure you clean the scanner first before running this utility. It will have you put the "adjustment paper" through twice, and that in turn should remove the black lines in your scans, as long as there is no dust on the scanner glass. Office Depot sells cleaner sheets for laser and inkjet printers which also work on faxes and scanners and which will clean the glass for you.

Hp scanjet 8250. I want to set my scanner to default to PDF when I am trying to email. That is the way we do most of our scanning and right now it defaults to RTF.


Have you considered simply scanning from within Adobe Acrobat or similar software that produces .pdf and then use the email feature within Acrobat?

As I look over the HP User Manual, I can't see any method to set the default output. It simply says...

Use the E-MAIL button() to scan documents or pictures and insert them in an e-mail message as an attachment. You must have an Internet connection and a supported e-mail application.
1. Place the original face down on the scanner glass or face up in the ADF. If you are scanning two-sided originals from an ADF, slide the DUPLEX switch to two-sided mode.
2.Press the E-MAIL button().A message appears asking if the original is a document or a picture.
3.Select Document or Picture, and click OK.Note:A preview image will not appear when scanning from the ADF. To change this preview setting, see the HP Photo & Imaging software Help.
4. Select the final scan area (the area inside the dotted lines) in the preview image.
5. Make adjustments to the preview image if needed.
6. Click Accept.The final scan area is scanned and your e-mail application is opened. The scanned image is added as an attachment to the e-mail message.
7. The Save As dialog box appears. Type a file name and choose a file type, and click OK.
8. Complete the e-mail as usual.

My scanner hp3570c has developed this problem since some time now, it scans but the white background is always in some megenta tone and the mater appears in green and blue. please advice what the problem...


you need to depress the original onto the scanner it could be the scanner is not fully resting on the flat surface, or not fully closed, say for example there is a big gap on the scanner and the white plate, try scanning a single sheet only and see if you have the same prob. i assume you are scanning a book or thick material or something, the colored images you see is the reflection of the scanner that goes astray from the actual images that needs to be scanned, the light that was exposed without the white plate reflected was converted into Green and Blue, pls try .

My scanning files are to big


Since there's not much information, I'm going to have to make a lot of assumptions with this solution.

The basic issue you have is not the scanning, it's the scaling after the scanning. Since you do not indicate what software you are using to scan the image, I can't be certain without knowing what you're using, but most of these scanning packages allow you to 'resize' or 'scale' the image. How much to scale depends on how large the original is, and how small you need the final version, so some experimentation may be in order. As an example, with my scanner, I typically resize to about 50% of the original.

If you don't have that option, most graphics programs allow this fairly easily (you simply save, then open the scanned image in the image editor and perform the scaling there). Or, some programs even let you resize without opening the file, such as Microsoft's free Image Resizer tool (http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe) which allows resizing by right clicking on the file name.

Stripline on my scanned images from Minolta 5400 II film scanner


If some particles of dust stick to the scanning module, then while scanning they appear like lines. Clean the scan module thoroughly using Isopropyl alcohol IPA-Industrial grade is enough, dont use any solvent. You can use your aftershave (!) once or twice. Ensure that the film strips are not sticky.

Streaks in image scanned by Canon DR-2580C Path-Through


The staples cannot reach the sensors. They could have scratched the glass above the sensors. Clean the glass with IsoPropyl alcohol. Try scanning a few images to find if the scratch marks are on the same place on all images. Once confirmed that the glass is scratched, you can change the glass. You need a technical expertise to change or call service staff.
