Question about Canon DR-2580C Path-Through Scanner

Canon DR-2580C Scanner

Scanner has recently started to read only the first page of multi document scans although it appears to have taken them all through.

When the first few pages have gone through the scanner it stops with the title panel showing. This is completed and the 'Attached' button pressed. The result is the input vanishes, the panel remains and the scanner takes through one more page but does not read it.

Re: Canon DR-2580C Scanner

You must have 'checked' the multipage option in the scanning software. Try scanning first page only and store as say temp1 and later all pages as temp2. If the file size is different you can deduce that the scanner has scanned all pages! To view multipage files, you need a proper software.

Canon DR-2580C scanner only scanning half the page. What could be the problem?

Select Auto for page size. The scanning software displays scanned image in many options, including 'fit'. Choose 'fit' so that you see complete image.

Scanner only scans top page although set on duplex setting.

Switch the little button on top of the scanner next to the 3 buttons. This switches between 1 page or multiple page.

Black at the bottom of scanned pages

There should not be a thick black line at the bottom, but could be from several things, light coming in from somewhere is my first guess, toner is almost out or the ribbon is getting stuck on the inside at that point. You may have to call Cannon and ask them.

Scanner is not reading multiple pages...

Check your scanning software settings. If you are getting only one file output, then you must have chosen 'multipage' option.

Dr-2580C nolonger pulls one page at a time.

How old is the rubber roller, in terms of number of scans? It it had crossed 250,000 better change it. It wears out and no amount of cleaning can help. Ensure that the paper is not sticky. Stapled documnets are held together where the pis was, ensure they are free.

I have a new DR-5010C scanner. I used to use the

I havent used Canon 2580C and hence cant comment on Scan Panel. But you can download SU5000 or Captureperfect 2.0 from Canon website ( This is easy to use and probably offers more features as compared to ScanPanel. Canon 5010C is a higher model as compared to 2589C and Captureperfect may offer better user interface.

The scanner pauses half way throught the document

May be the location where it is writing the data is not 'free'. Do a 'deframent' of the drive where you intend saving the data. Ensure there is enough space on the Hard Disk

Canon DR 2580C Scanning issue

In Captureperfect, select page size as 'Scanners Maximum'. Select automatic paper size, check the output now. If you select bigger paper size and smaller paper, you will see lack output, outside the paper area.

Blank or blurry left edge of scanned documents

Try scanning a full page (A3) at different levels of contrast and in the Automode also, in color and Mono. Check the output to see if it is software or hardware issue.

If the scanners keeps blinking while powering on, it is because it has not been intialised. Check for loose shreds of paper in the paper path. Unless the scanner intialises, it cannot scan. If simpel 'countonly' option works, then the scanner is okay.
