Too much blue hue on one side

Every time I scan or copy a piece of paper, I get a strong blue hue on one half of the document. if I delete the hue entirely from the enhance menu, the entire document gets lightened too much though.

Duplex copying on xerox phaser 3300mfp

I have the same problem and was told by the telephone helpdesk that the machine cannot copy double-sided to double-side. The duplexing referred to is copying 2 single-sided documents onto one single sheet on both sides....Like whoever does that! This is misleading on Xerox's part . Colin B.

My panasonic kv-s2026c has a black line running down the left side when I scan my documents. I have cleaned the rollers, used air canister to see if anything is stuck in there. That didn't help

On the CD that came with the scanner is a directory called "Shading Utility". Copy this folder to your PC. Put a blank piece of copy paper into your scanner. Open up the Shading Utility folder and then double-click on the shadingutility.exe. The password is "GOSHADING" without the quotes. This process will take a few minutes but it will re-align the lens in the scanner which has gotten out of alignment through vibration. This is what is causing the vertical black line on the left side of the page.

A line keeps showing up on the scans that's not on the do I delete the line that isn't on the original document but shows up about 1-2" in front left side of scan?

All it takes is a minute speck on the glass when using the ADF to cause lines on a copy.
THOUROUGHLY clean the glass including the thin piece to the left of the bed if there is one.
Spray glass cleaner on a link free cloth and wipe it clean

I have a Fujitsu 4220c2 scanner and when scanning multiple documents it'll take one half half/quarter way through and get stuck. The pick roller and pad assembly have been replaced. What could be causing...

Thank you for contacting Fixya.
This error is detected when one of the followings occurs: (TWAIN Error-Paper jammed in the ADF - Code DS32002), Scanner panel error-U1
1) A document does not reach the TOP sensor while the scanner has transported the document about 250 mm to pick. (The scanner performs retry operation.) 2) The trailing edge of a document does not reach the TOP sensor after the scanner transports the document by the length (L) below. (The document may have slipped on the rollers) Check the followings: 1.Scan condition - Transported length (L) before jam 2.ADF fixed size - scanning Approximately 450 mm 3.Long paper scanning -1.2 times of the specified value
If the imprinter is installed, paper jam can occur in the following case. If the scanner starts scanning when the imprinter cable (EXT cable) is not connected to the scanner, it does not rotate the imprinter, since it recognizes the imprinter not installed, which results in paper jam in the imprinter section.
Remove the jammed document and close the ADF. When the error frequently occurs, refer to the followings:
1. Do the documents satisfy paper specification? Please read the operator guide for paper specification. 2. Have the documents been jogged? • Align the edge of documents for stable paper feeding. • Remove documents with crease or dog-ear. • Scanning different width of documents may cause skew and result in paper jam. 3. Is the Imprinter EXT cable correctly connected to the scanner? Check the cables. (only when the Imprinter is installed) 4. Clean rollers in ADF and Imprinter and see if the error is removed. (only when the Imprinter is installed) 5. Replace Pick roller and Pad ASY and see if the error is removed. Check the consumable counter from the TWAIN driver screen. When the counter exceeds the values shown, replace Pick roller or Pad ASY.
If the above do not help, then the issue could be caused by the followings:
6. Malfunction of TOP sensor. 7. Malfunction of Cover open sensor. 8. Faulty Scanner Control PCA.
If Imprinter is installed, then the issue could be caused by the followings:
1. Malfunction of Sensor OPB5 lever (only when the Imprinter is installed). 2. Malfunction of Motor LF if the imprinter roller does not rotate.(only when the Imprinter is installed). 3. Faulty Imprinter Control PCA. (only when the Imprinter is installed).
Hope the above information is helpful.Please revert if you have any doubt.

The automatic document feeder keeps grabbing the paper on one side and therefore creasing the paper so that it does not go through

Lift up on the ADF roller cover and look for a piece of paper. Remove the blue guide bar and the end where the paper flips under. If you can't find paper put the blue bar back and close the ADF (automatic document fee) lid. Lift up the flatbed scanner cover and look at the far left side to see a piece of obstruction. Clear that and try making a copy.

How do i delete error pages after scaanning?

I changed the settings from duplex (double sided) scanning to simplex (single sided) scanning under the settings tab in the scansnap organiser. this was ok since i had all one-sided documents to scan. you would need to reverse this settings change anytime you have a double-sided document to scan.

At scaning time show


I take it the scanner is connecting to your pc okay? the paper need to engage in the feeder. Try just putting one piece of a4 copy paper in the scanner and seeing if that will register as beng paper in the document feeder.

Kind regards Liz

When scanning color document, blue tone is present as background shade

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.

Epson V200 Copy Utility Problem with Incorrect Margin Output

I had the same problem forever and i just sat down today to fix it.
I have a Konica Minolta PagePro 1350w for my printer. The resolution
is set default at 600x1200 when in the Output Paper - Paper setting.
Change the resolution for your printer if you can to 1200x 1200 in the output paper - paper setting in the copy utility software, and
that should solve your problem with this half page copies. It might
still cut off some margins at the very edge, but most of the time they're just
plain paper margin. Hope this helps you out.

HP ScanJet 5590 automatic feeder not working

Have you tried scanning in the flat bed mode? Does it scan okay? If the image is good, then there is no problem with scan module. Check your page settings. If the page size selected for scanning is smaller than actual size, there can be some peoblems. Try and scan with max size. Check if the sensors are dust/paper free. A small piece of paper (The small round discarded piece from Computer stationery) in the paper sensor can create trouble.
