DR-6080 Scanner runs slow

Please help! Our scanner has a 4 to 5 second delay between each page that is fed. It used to run a lot faster, and we have had the rollers replaced...any ideas?

Re: DR-6080 Scanner runs slow

What port are you using? May be you are using usb1.0 port. Use USB 2.0 port. Sometimes Changing USB cable would do the trick! Try SCSI if you have a card and SCSI cable, but this adds to the cost. All new comps come with USB 2.0. I had similar problem with 9080C and on changing to USB 2.0, it worked fine. Don't use USB & SCSI simultaneously.

When scanning with the native scanning software, the scanner runs very fast but file size is huge. When I use Adobe 9 to scan, my files size is much smaller but the scanner pauses after each page. I need...

I would expect the problem with the Capture perfect fike size is down to the compression chosen for the output file. Ideally black and white inahes should be Group 4 TIFFs and Colour or Greyscale should be JPEG. Alternatively you may want to check the scanner is set to 'scan ahead' in the twain settings in Acrobat. If it is set to anything else the scanner will slow down to allow the PC to process every image. With 'Scan Ahead' turned on the scanners memeory buffer the PC speed a little giving you faster scanning.

E25 is abnormalities in pickup motor. If you open the front/top cover, you can locate the motor, Pls check if the connections are okay. These motors are generally very reliable and don't fail.

I have a canon 6080 scanner. getting a error "no

Clean the two 'black dots' in the paper tray, just under the roller. They are actually paper sensors. Try 'page counting'. If this works, the scanner is okay. If the problem still persists, try reloading the scanning software.

Your disk must be full or you need to do a 'defrag' on the volume where you are storing the data. Initially it is stored in the buffer and when the disk writing is slow, scanning speed is affected. Clean the disk for faster scanning.

Scanner command invalid in current state

I have not used CapturePerfect 3.0. Hope the scanner is just fine. Try count only mode to check if it is okay.

Uninstall Captureperfect. Run chkdsk/scandisk to check if OS is ok. Reinstall Captureperfect again and it should work.

Dr 6080 4401 error code

Wht happens after the comp displays 4401 error? Does the system hang? If you can still use the comp, then forget it. Frankly I have not faced this error. But freak errors like these can be seen even if your OS files are damaged. Try reinstalling the OS in another partition. If the scanner works fine in the new environemnt, you can be sure that some files are damaged.
