Question about Heidelberg Linocolor Jade 2 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Vibration of scanner causing misaligned image scan.

Recently my Jade2 scanner started having vibration problems during a scan. The vibration is not constant, sections of the scan are fine then a section will have misaligned scanning due to the vibration of the scan head as it travels down the rod.
Is there an fix or is it time to retire this old horse?

Well from my past experiences with those scanners it is usually caused by the memory filling up from all the images your scanning. My first suggestion is to reboot your computer to clear out the memory. If the problem persist's then I would contact Canon you may have a problem with the unit inside your scanner that does the imaging.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES that I did attempt to help you with your problem. Thank you

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

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

This is almost impossible! THe scanner will scan only one page/image at a time and immediately stored. The roller can pickup only the top page. Are you converting them to a multipage PDF file? Is there any setting in creation of PDF file? If problem still persists, try and reinstall the software after uninstalling the existing version.

Do you have enough hard disk space? Reinstall your driver software. Run Scandisk on the Comp.

Is the problem coming on after a set time interval, any heating smell?
