Question about Epson Perfection V350 Flatbed Scanner

Intermittent scanner problem

My scanner cuts (mostly on the left side) the image so that the original is cropped.  This problem is intermittent, in that I can complete several scans without difficulty.  It is random, in that there is no pattern (number of scans between problem).

Re: intermittent scanner problem

What brand of scanner is it?

Check in your Twain settings if you have auto-edge detection enabled. Sometimes this will mistake content on the page for the edge of the document.

Is there a way to define scan area settings in CapturePerfect v3 to allow for different margins when scanning front-side and back-side of a paper? I.e. to compensate for differences in left and right...

Interesting question. I don't think there is a solution from CP3. It is logical to assume that front and back sides are of the same size and hence there is no provision in the software. One option is to scan once for say top side(left margin) and change the settings (select reverse scanning, i.e, bottom side only) and alter the margin as required, nevertheless you will have to scan twice. You can also crop after the images are generated separately, but it is difficult to separate odd and even images, assuming there is a large number.

Some **** messed with my CanoScan Lide 200 scanner and it crops the photos and it cuts all the important stuff out. How do I undo the crop photo. I have tried doing everything including unistall and...

Uninstall the driver and ALSO the scanning software. Reinstall both after a computer restart. Check the prescan settings. May be it is selected for a smaller area. This will stay on even if the driver is reinstalled. Look for 'default' option in the scanning software, if available press 'default' and select your settings.
There is a general bug in most (not all) of the Scanning software, that mere changing of the settings don't work just by changing the settings. They work only after the 'default' is pressed.

Hi, I have the same problem. I am running on the same computer with the same software Nikon Scan without problems. Found out that the problem happens mostly when a crop is selected that just eliminates the scanning frame. Without crop mostly OK. However no reason why and no real solution

Using epson v500 and can't get it to change the document size under image type in professional mode according to manual. scanning old B&W negatives 2 x 2 in size and it cuts off the image most of the time...

I had the same problem and have found my answer. I don't know if it's the technically correct one but it works.
When you open the scan page and it shows you the mode, setting, original document type, destination, adjustments, and then the preview and scan buttons. Under the Preview button you will see a box check marked for thumbnail. Remove the check and then do a preview scan. You should end up with a complete scan showing the slide (if you only scanned one), the open side and the surrounding blackened area too. Click on the picture in the preview and then draw an outline around the part of the picture that you want to use. Do this just like it you were going to do cropping of the photo. Once you have the box around the part you want click on zoom. Your next preview will be the picture that you want. I haven't figured out how to remove the remaining blackened area with out going into a photo edit program but it must be able to be done. Then you can scan to where ever you save them to and have the whole slide. I hope that this gets you at least some what further along.

In the settings TAB you need to specify the Area OR BAND that you wanna cut and where you want your cropped image to be saved thats it .

Scanned image on left is cropped by a good quarter of an inch.

To get the image on the right side, Select 11" wide and the length you want. Keep the paper guides at the far ends. Insert the paper at the extreme right side and the image will appear on the right side. The left side would appear dark and You may need software to clean. If you dont have Raster Editing software, best way is to stick your image onto a white paper and scan the whole paper. Ensure that the ends are trim. ( I am assuming it is faceup scanning)
