Question about Canon DR 3080C Path-Through Scanner

Black line through the middle of the document

I have a DR-3080C II. It scans perfectly but everything it scans has a black line from top to bottom in the exact middle. I've cleaned everything I see. The documents itself has no markings just whenver it goes through the scanner.

The thick line is either because of dust sticking to the glass or a module problem. Try different brightness settings and scan white paper. If the thickness varies and also the sides of the black strip are jaggered (step like) then it is dust on Glass. use isopropyl alcohol to clean, dont use solvents. If the teickness is same for all levels of brightness and has a sharp edge always, it could be scan module problem.

What Scanning software are you using? If CapturePerfect, there is an option to detect double page. Once you select this, the scanner will STOP, if two pages are sucked in and the panel will display "d04" indicating double page. Also Wipe all the rollers with a well wrung damp cloth for every 2000 pages to remove paper dirt.

Canon Scanner DR-2580-C (Black lines around border of document)


It seems that your scanner is conflicting with previously installed software. It is impossible to say whether it is Canon or Adobe. Reinstalling Acrobat or updating it may work as trying a different folder like Desktop instead of My Documents. One or more drivers are at fault. What system are you running? 2000, XP, Linux? Update your video rendering software too. Let me know so that I can help solve this issue. Just try as mentioned first.

My scanner is now adding a page with a black line that runs from top to bottom of the page and the actual document scanned is page 2. But the document is fine with no line through it. Does this mean that...


Check your scanner software settings. It is probably set at duplex ever time you start to scan. That is why you get two pages for every pass, the front and the back. You must place the document in the feeder in a way that the front side of the document is page 2. You may want to flip it next time you scan. So the main question is why there is black line from top to bottom? That is because there is a piece of dirt stuck on the glass of the scanner. You see, this scanner actually does two scanning when a page runs through it: the front and the back in duplex mode. So there are two scanners in side the box. The front page scanner apparently is dirty and needs to be cleaned with clean cloth and lens cleaner.

Check the brightness setting. Try keeping at close to the maximum and scan. If it is still black, may be the lighting module or Scan module is affected. Check for any loose connections.

Getting vertical lines on scanned pages when duplex scanning on canon dr-3080c II scanner Only on duplex side of pages, though. Front page still shows up clean.


It is dust on the glass, clean it thoroughly. You will find it at the same location for all drawings and may get faded for lower brightness!

The documents are scanned but dont appear on later inspection, or if they do they are just a horizontal line across the middle


Try reinstalling the driver software. If the problem still persists, run scandisk or reinstall OS.
