Re: 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.

Dear Jeff, It seems like the Horizontal IC in your TV is dying. This and the Vertical IC is responsible for displaying images on your TV. (Look at your TV through your Phone Camera and you will see upward scrolling lines.This is the Horizontal IC in action.) I would strongly advise you to get your TV repaired immediately.
Hi first do a cmyk test chart of each color if it happens when you do black copies then check the black imaging unit as it is not being cleaned and will give you black lines replace black drum unit
if it is on color copies black copies then the other thing to look at is the transfer belt unit and you may need to change the transfer belt
do the CMYK and you should get each color fully covered on each page see if there is any lines on the sheets in the same area you are getting the lines if so replace that color drum
You have to use the "FILM AREA GUIDE" included with the scanner. This black plastic guide leaves a small area at the top of the glass open so that the scanner can calibrate itself at the start of each scan. Use the guide or leave at least 8mm between the top of your film and the top of the scanner glass.
Hello, You can remove the line by checking the glass in the auto document feed area (the small glass area about 1" X 8"). Check the glass for either white-out or a black spot (ink) and wash it off using alcohol or glass cleaner and a lintless towel which ever works. Sometimes the spot can be more easily found if you line up the line on the paper to the glass.
Unless you are using high-end Nikon Speedlights with camera and flash set for Auto FP High-Speed Sync, your top flash sync shutter speed on the D80 is 1/200 second. The black band you are seeing at faster shutter speeds is because the second curtain of the shutter begins to close before the first curtain reaches the fully-open position (which is when the flash fires). The higher the shutter speed, the shorter the gap between first and second curtains. To get full exposure with flash, there must be an instant when the shutter is fully open -- first curtain completed travel, second curtain not started yet.
"As the speed increases the final image should get lighter" applies to ISO speed. Higher shutter speeds mean less light reaching the sensor, but that's not the cause of the black bands.
9800XL - fix for failing lamps 1) Unplug the scanner - not just from the computer, but also from the AC! 2) If your unit has a Transparent Media Adapter on top, disconnect it from the back of the scanner, lift it off and set it aside. 3) Remove the four white slotted screws at rear of unit. 4) Remove the four Philips screws in the area surrounding the glass scanning bed. 5) Carefully lift the top off, and set it aside. 6) Inside the scanner, there will be a black metal contraption that rides the two steel rails in the unit. On the side of the contraption are some black screws. This device contains the lamps as well as the image sensor. Unscrew the 4 screws that hold the top cover on. Lift off the top cover. You may gently move the thingy along the rails for easier screw access, it will automatically reseat itself when powered on. 7) Inside this area, you will see a small circuit board. Disconnect the two connectors on it, remove the two screws that hold the board in place, and lift it out. 8) On this circuit board there should be one or two damaged capacitors. Unsolder them and replace them with 2 33pF 3kV capacitors (cost: under $1.00) 9) Put the whole thing back together, and it should function properly.
