Redish/Pinks color to scans.

When ever i try to scan anything it comes out with a redish/pinkish color to it, even if it is a white piece of paper. I'm not sure how to fix the color balance or what i need to do to fix it. I can scan negatives just fine. The color is correct with negatives, but anything else has the red color to it. Thanks.

I620 scanner

Is the scanner scanning normally otherwise? Try scanning a printed matter with white background and if it is okay, then the streaking may be because of excess brightness chosen. Check if the paper movement is at constant speed. If it is smooth paper, it may slip and the same area may scanned again, appearing like a streak.

DR-9080C BackgrounfColour Dropping Out

Color scanning is a big technology. There are concepts like Hue and intensity, refer to wikipedia for explanation. There is something called source light (your monitor for example) and reflected light (your picture that is being scanned). After scanning properly, say you view on a monitor where the Brightness & Contrast are not proper, you will see the image poorly! To test the scanning scan absolute white and check the output. It should read the values 255,255,255 for RGB (Red, Green & Blue). If the values are 255,255,255 but still the image does not appear white on the monitor, it is monitor setting that is wrong. If the output is not 255,255,255 then CANON service personnel only can help. Any good imaging software will display the RGB values.

CANON uses LED light source and they have fairly long life as compare to scanner bulbs. It is okay if you use a powerful system, but it has limited role as the scanner does all the jobs and it only sends the data to the Comp. May further processing is better withe high performance CPU and large RAM.

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.
