Blue Tint on Document when Scanning in Color

Good morning!

When we scan a document that has a lot of black & white text and a color logo or stamp (like Draft for example), on the preview (before and after we hit Store) of the document it has a blue tint on the edges of the document making look like we made a bad color copy from a copier. Is there a setting or something we can do to fix this and make it look like an original document?

Thank you so much for helping me out!

You might try resetting the "settings" to factory defaults and then scanning again. I have seen strange tints if the settings get set incorrectly, not sure exactly what is wrong. However, using factory defaults corrects the problem, then change settings one at a time.

You don't need to scan the doc again. If you have a graphics editing program (like Photoshop) you can change the mode to Grayscale and resave it. I bet you by now you probably have rescanned it anyway :)

Visually check the clutch spring (located on the left side of the pickup roller shaft, just before the gear). If the spring is deformed or broken, replace the entire pickup roller shaft. The part you need to order are shown below. You will also need a small 'C' clip. I do not know if the clip comes ith the shaft or the gear...

You have two options for scanning text. You may explore both of them and see which is better for you. Either way, you will have to make friends with manually changing the scanning settings, because simple presets often are not suited for every case.

First is to use Grayscale mode, and a minimum resolution of 200dpi. This should give you satisfactory text quality. If you want to print the text afterwards, 300dpi would be even better. You may want to increase contrast, to get the letters more defined and eliminate most of the background toning.

Second is to use Black and White (monochrome) mode, but in this case you need to set the resolution higher, preferrably to 600dpi. Also in this case you will have to play with the Black/White threshold in order to eliminate background "dirt" appearing as black artefacts.

If you scan the documents in order to process them with OCR software, usually the OCR application will give you suggestions on how to set the scanning parameters to obtain good results.

Hp scanjet2300c scans have a yellow tint and black patches.


The best way to check if the scanner is okay or not is by installing on another computer. First try B&W, then try color. IF it works may be your OS or driver (of the old comp) is corrupted.

Have long experince with PixEdit program using Kodaks. PixEdit usually comes around it after a firmware upgrade on the scanner. Not sure about this specific model but at least OK on other models of Kodak.

Scanned image only prints in black and white


it's tricky / annoying:

you have a preview ...
you have some of the (3) images checked
but also you have some of these images selected (blue outline)

now:
when you select (I don't mean the checking) an image you'll have to set the scanning params
again - or check them ...

if you select an image, and then set the params (like "color"), your scanned image will be in color

....
also resolution is the same way ..
especially after crating preview .. it'll be set to 300 Dpi
so after seecting one for scanning - check the resolution too :)

Blank Scan from HP Scanjet 5590 Flatbed Auto Feed


Scanning is possible in 'Text' mode and 'Picture' Mode. In text mode, which is simple 'Black & White", this can happen, particulalrly if the text is in color. Either you increase the contrast settings or scan the document in Grey/color and convert it to B&W using the software. By this you need not check if there is output!. ( I am assuming that otherwise the scanner is performing okay). File size in B&W is very small as compared to Grey/color.
