On HP Scanjet 8270 when I use HP Solutions to scan from I get a grey background and white border. It should have a white background and no border. I can't seem to get rid of these problems. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    i have the same problem. only after an upgrade of scanning software. can not scan in b/w as the page header is in color.

    I recently updated the software as well and can only get a pure white background if I scan in black and white, which is not an option for colour documents. Any way to adjust contrast?

    Same Problem here, and the HP Support had no solution, only to take back the Scanner... after many telephoncalls and e-mails.

    I will never buy HP again.

If LCD displays Error 06 or Error 09 , the TMA might require service
Press SCAN PICTUREc00068011.jpg button once (see Figure 3 above). The TMA lamp should turn on (see Figure 4 above). If pressed a second time, the TMA lamp turns off (if TMA is detected). NOTE: The scanner carriage lamp should be off when the TMA lamp is on and should be on when the TMA lamp is off. The only time the TMA could not be detected is if the accessory cable is not plugged into scanner

How to reset nokia mobiles life timer to ''0''

Nokia life timer is a counter that keeps track of the Total call time of your phone. It will show how much the phone has been used, and it?s the best thing to check if you?re planning to buy a used Nokia Mobile.
To see the Total Call Time or the life timer counter, On the standby screen type the following code *#92702689# (Easy way to remember this is ? *#war0anty#). And it will pop up a message that shows the life timer in hours and minutes.

Here is a detailed procedure to make this life timer zero.

The following files are required to reset the life timer:
  1. Nemesis service suite link: Download from Here
  2. file: Download Here
1. Download and Extract the file, and Download Nemesis Service Suite.

2. Install Nemesis Service Suite on your Computer, It won?t take much time.(select the first option)

3. Install Nokia Cable Drivers (No need to install, if you have Nokia PC Suite already installed)

4. Connect The Phone in ?PC Suite? Mode to the PC

5. Open Nemesis Service Software

6. Click on ?Scan for new Device? Button on Top right Corner 

7. It Will take a few seconds to scan, and it will load up the software interface after communicating with the Phone.

8. Click the ?Phone Info? Button.

9. On the Bottom, Select and open the ?Permanent Memory? Tab, which is next to the Fbus info.

10. Click the ?Write? button on Below right, and open the Extracted file on your PC. 

11. After the file is opened , it will immediately start writing it to the Phone?s EEPROM Area.

12. The Procedure will end when the progress bar reaches 20%. This is normal , and on the bottom right side, it will display its done.

13. Unplug the Phone, and Restart it.

14. After boot up, Check the life timer .

Note: This method has been tested on following devices: Nokia 6630, 6670, 6680, 5500 sport, 5700XM, 6110 Navigator, 6120 Classic, N70, N72, N73,N76, E50, E51, E61i, E65, N80, N91, N95, N95 8GB, 5800XM Mobile devices. If you want to try it on other S60v3 or S60v5 mobiles, do it at your own risk.

  • Power Failure During Writing will cause damage to the Phone, And there is a chance that it might brick the phone as well.
  • Loose, worn out Data Cables Might fail the Writing process, and there are chances of damage to the EEPROM area of the phone.
  • Do not attempt this with phones that are not included in the confirmed list.

HP 2600n grey background

Most Original cartridges are starter cartridges that hold only 1/3-3/4 ink. Drum maybe defective, and this usually causes the grey or black in your printing. Cartridges may need replacement along with the drum. Hopefully this helps

Automatic Cropping...

Before turning off the autocrop feature, reset the software to the default setting. Then turn off the autocrop feature. Some scanning software need to be reset to the original default condition and accept software switches only then!

Grayblue Background on scans

A color scan will give real output as it is. If the background is grey, the output will also be grey. If you select 256 Color output, there may be small change in color, as compared to the original. If you select grey output, all colors will be converted to Grey. If these files are converted to PDF, it will be same, except in ODF format.

If you select B&W you can save the file in TIFF format. Unlike grey or color, each pixel can be either black or white only. To scan in black and white you must select right brightness. By doing os you can eliminate background (technically noise) and capture foreground(data)
