Going green is eco friendly!

Check the settings if any color dropout is chosen, If in doubt, uninstall and reinstall scanner driver.

Hello, I got A Kodak i1440. I get white lines on the documents, when scanning on grayscale, the image guides are brand new. Any ideas on why is this happening and how to fix it? Thank you

green and white continuous forms WHOOAH!! the contrast is from the grayscale scanning. nothing you can do. maybe increase the contrast but the text will probably drown out. keep experimenting. try just a black and white copy and then try scanning the copy. could be a lot of work depending on your workload. have fun

When scanning a photo the colour green doesnt come through on the scanned image

Are you printing a scanned photo image, if so make sure your printer cartridge is o.k. If it is then the problem is more than likely a software error, if you have the original disc delete and re-install the software or go to manufacturers website and download updated software which is usually free.

My Epson Perfection 1650 Photo scanner keeps producing scans that have a 3-4 inch bright panel vertically down the middle. The image is visible, but the outer thirds are quite darker than the middle...

Make sure all the scanning settings are correct first then set everything first before you preview image then hit scan.
make sure the size is correct drag the image on the prview screen make ths dotted lines frame your image then scan
remember you tell the machine what to do by setting it, if you dont the machine trys to do thevscan its self. Good luck, have fun

Actually you do have to select a program for working with photographs such as Photoshop, or Adobe Elements, maybe Microsoft Paint or Picasa maybe. Then your scanner will scan and the pictures will be saved and they'll be opened in the photo program you have chosen afterwards.

Want to delete

When you scan things, it gets saved to a location on your computer as a JPG (image file). In the program you use to do the scanning it should tell you what folder it is in, it'll be something like "C:\Documents And Settings\Abc\Something\...". Or maybe "C:\Program Files\Canon\Abc\Something\blah...". Each scan is a separate image file. All you have to do is go to Start->My Computer, then navigate to the location where the files are being saved using explorer. Then select the offending image and hot delete.

Don't deleting things that aren't your scan, though. You can break your computer that way.

Green layer on scanned image from ADF Simplex

What model of scanner are you using? Is it white light based or RGB LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). Very rarely it may happen that the Red and Blue LEDs are not glowing may be because of loose contact, but this very rare occurence. Try reloading driver software.

Scanned image has a line running through it

This could be one faulty sensor pixel or a speck of dirt on the scanner bar. It might be worth opening the scanner and carefully dusting the bar with a camera cleaner aerosol.
