Black section in scans

Hi. Just today we have had a problem where the scanner leaves a large black section in the scanned image.

The first inch or so of a page is scanned, then the next 2 inches are black, after which the scan is OK.

I tried reloading the software and drivers but this did not help, other than the black section sometimes has thin bands of colour in it.

Thick black lines when scanning Samsung SCX-4824FN

The contact image scanner is faulty or the cable from the motherboard to the contact image scanner is faulty. I would bet it is the CIS as this scanner is used in many different machines (canon,lexmark,sagem) and it gives problems in all the machines. You can usually salvage a good one from an elcheapo lexmark inkjet multifunction.

When trying to copy or scan on my HP Photosmart C4400 printer I recieve a large black line down the document. This only happends when using the scanner.

THERE IS A DUST PARTICLE LODGED ON THE PIECE OF GLASS ON THE SURFACE SCANNING SECTION OF YOUR SCANNER. The scanner section has a long 8 1/2 inch or longer piece of glass that is about 3/4 of an inch wide. Clean the piece of dust or whatever off of it and the line will go away.
I normally use a cotton swab with alcohol on it and get it off .
Good Idea is to clean the whole piece of glass off from time to time.
I hope this has been a help to you.
Best Regards,

How can I scan a document then print it with larger print?

You can scan a document or photo or negative film etc.. using a scanner, there a many types of scanners which you can choose as per your requirement. There are dedicated scanners, all in one integrated scanners, or two in one like that.. but if you need it for your professional use or daily use, it's better to get a dedicated scanner not "all in one" since with all in one if the copier fails or fax fails, the scanner will also fail because they are related and built-in integrated.
The process of scanning a document is as follows;
  • > Place the document on the scanner's flatbed.
  • > Press scan button or scan using the integrated software from the computer.
  • > Customize the scan settings/quality.
  • > Save the scanned documents.
Printing a document to a larger size is different, you can use photo editors like photoshop, etc..where you can changed the resolution as well as the size of the image. It's best to change the size or resolution before you give the print command. Or you can also change the print size with the paper size or print size.
If you still need more help, please let me know with more details. I am ready to assist you.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord

Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    I need a scanner that will scan 10X14 pictures

    I found some scanners for you listed below but,
    You can also scan large pictures in sections, and then use a program like STITCHES. Basically you scan it in quarter sections and then create a working board in your photo program and then you copy and paste each section into that board and line up the edges.
    This is what most people do rather than buy a very expensive large format scanner.

    Some large companies also have large scanners for maps etc. If you know someone who works for a very large company or one that does surveying etc. They may do this favor for you.
    Though copy stores may have the size you need, copywrite issues will be asked about.

    Here is the list.
    large format scanners

    Microtek ScanMaker 9800XL Scanner
    Price: $1,038.31, 12-by-17-inch tabloid size bed

    Mustek Scan Express A3 1200 Pro USB Large Format Scanner
    $154.69media_size_maximum: A3 (11.7 in x 16.5 in)
    Maximum Scan Width 44in.
    Input Size:Min: 4.5" x 5.5" Max: 42" x 100'

    Thank you and good luck.

    Black area above the scanned image.

    If you set Automatic brightness/Contrast this happens. Try manual setting. Adjust different settings and select the best suited for a particular type of drawing. The scanner takes couple of milliseconds to judge the best lighting, by then the paper has moved little. This area appears black. This is easily solvable.
