Question about Canon DR-9080C Path-Through Scanner

1 Answer

9080c fails to scan single page; has trouble scanning a batch.

9080c will scan a batch of documents but sometimes will fail to feed a page in that batch. The scanner is not jammed, it is just that the paper will go in about 3 inches and then not 'catch' on the next rollers. Also, when trying to scan a single page, the scanner tray will go up and down, apparently not recognizing that a page is on the tray to be scanned.

    Jarratt: I believe you are correct in diagnosing the culprit part (i.e. the plastic sensor). I unhinged it to clean it but that did not solve the problem. However, I wrapped duct tape on the part that touches the paper to give the sensor more lift. The scanner was then able to recognize the single page. This is a temp fix at best, but it seems to isolate the problem. I am going to order a new plastic sensor part. Thanks a lot.

Hi
what size page are you trying to scan, if they are smaller than the gap between the transport rollers, they will not feed.

the single sheet problem you have:- the scanner knows when there is paper to feed when the sensor is pushed up beside the pick roller and it will put the tray down again when the rollers are pushed up. sometimes the little plastic sensor to the left of the roller gets a bit stuck and needs to be freed, it wares itself out where it hinges inside the cover around the pick roller. just unclipping it and cleaning it is usually enough.

good luck.

Will not feed 11x17


You probably need to set the user settings to "long doc" mode.

1) When the machine is in the standby state,
press the NEW FILE key and Count Only key
simultaneously. During the user mode, the
LEDs of the NEW FILE key and Count Only
key illuminate and the address (U01-U10)
and data (the last digit) appear on the
counter display.
2) When changing the address, use the NEW
FILE key. Each time NEW FILE is pressed,
the address changes, cycling from U01 to
U10.
3) When changing the data, use the Count Only
key. Each time Count Only is pressed, the
data changes.
4) Pressing the Stop key exits the user mode.

Long document mode =U10; 0=normal and 1=long document mode.

Happy Scanning!

I can't scan different document sizes (A3 and A4) in one batch with the Canon 9080C.


IF you are using CapturePerfect 3. version, you can select "Auto detection" for page size, and under 'more' select 'image size' instead of guide plate. Also you may have to select option '1' under user code U10 in case you want to scan pages over 17 inches long. (Press Newfile and Countonly simultaneously, press 'newfile' till you get U10, press 'countonly' and select 1. This will enable scanning upto 1 meter long).
CP3 has "Skip Blank page option", this helps you to automatically delete blank pages on the back side and scan only those with data.

I have a Canon Image Runner 3230 which we also use to scan PDF files into our snap drive. When scanning a large job build, if the machine jams, the documents already scanned in the job build are lost. Is...


Hi mail. Let me tell you a workaround for this problem.First of all I understand every aspect of your question and problems as the document feeder for the ir 3220 is about the biggest piece of **** I've ever seen and I have been working on copiers since 1988.And when you use the "Universal "SEND" " function I also realize that for example if you have scanned a 500 page document and it jams at 499 you have to start all over again.That because the copier has established communication with the server directly during the "send" process and when an error {document paper jam} occurs, for whatever reason the error cannot be reconciled on the fly. BUT!!!!! :-) If you scan the same document(s) to the "Mailbox" function the copier can and will allow you to recover from such a mishap as the process you are conducting is all happening "on board" the device so if a jam or misfeed occurs in the document feeder during the scanning process the copier will tell you to put the stack of originals back in the feeder with page 1 on top.Then the copier will begin to feed the originals quickly merely to count the pages till it finds the the one it jammed on.Once it counts to the original it failed on it will resume the scanning process.THEN...... no matter how many failures have occurred during the process, once you are done the "SEND" function will appear as an option.At this point you will be viewing the "batches " of documents in the display because if it is a large document you will not have been able to put the entire bulk in the feeder at once.Now highlite all of the"files/batches" and hit EDIT. Under edit will be the "merge" option. Select merge and all the batches you have highlighted will be merged together into one big document.NOW selest SEND and designate the location you wish to send it to.Since the document in its entirety resides correctly in a "mailbox/hardrive" storage area it can be sent with no fear.I have many customers with this same difficulty and this has been a lifsaver. hope this help,and have a better day! :-)

I can't figure out how to scan multiple pages to one file


Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing fixya.com

It is possible to scan different batches scanned from the ADF into one PDF file. When loading more pages in the ADF after the first realm is finished, it asks if you want to continue scanning to the same file. After that, it will continue scanning to the same file. However, this feature can be selected in the Adobe Acrobat application itself. From HP software, if we load the paper after one realm of paper in the ADF is finished, it will scan the second realm to a different file. If you want to continue scanning to the same file, you need to have either Acrobat Exchange or Adobe Acrobat installed on the computer. Adobe Reader will not provide this feature. After installing either Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Exchange, perform the following steps to scan pages to a single file:
  1. Make sure your scanner is turned on.
  2. Start Acrobat Exchange or Adobe Acrobat.
  3. Put the document into the scanner (usually face down on the scan bed).
  4. In Adobe Acrobat, click File , then Import , and Scan .
  5. Select the device and whether you are scanning a single- or double-sided document.
  6. The scanning software opens and the scanner completes a preview scan.
  7. When the preview scan comes up, make any adjustments you would like, including selecting the area you want to appear in the final scan.
  8. Click Scan . This will get the final scan into the computer.
  9. Your scanning software should take you back to Adobe Acrobat.
  10. In Adobe Acrobat, you should see a small window asking you if you want to scan another page. If the document you are scanning has more than one page, click the Next Page button. If this is the only page, click Done .
    NOTE: Scanning multiple pages causes each page to append to the previously scanned page. If you have multiple pages, but want them to be in different files, click Done after each page to create separate files.
  11. When you have scanned the last page, click Done on the window described in step 10.
  12. Your scanned pages will open in Adobe Acrobat. Scroll through to make sure that everything is there.
  13. Click File , and then Save As to name your file and save it.
Still unable to figure out, How to do this? Here are some tutorial on HP website that might help.

Hope this would help.

Canon 9080C not scanning 11x17 pages


The problem is probably in your scanning software, you have to tell it if you want to scan legal size, and if you leave it set for legal all the time it might put dark bars under the letter size docs. It depends on the version of software on your computer.

First, ensure you are connecting the scanner to your computer. I'm assuming USB connection, and that you're using an operating system supported by this device.

Next, install the drivers and software for this device. Those should have come with an installation disc, but if you don't have that disc, you can get them from the PIXMA MP830 support site, here:

Acrobat and Canon DR-9080C not working


You are right, it is driver related issue. Acobat 9 has more features that may not be compatible with the existing driver. may be you can use CapturePerfect and directly create PDF and then use the Optimising features of Acrobat 9. Ofcourse you have to do it twice, but you can use the 'batch' process and do it automatically.

Want to scan to pdf a document larger than one auto-feed tray


I'm just thinking off the top of my head but there is an option in copying called 'job build' in special functions. This enables you to add many document sets into one print job. This may also work for scanning although i can't remember trying. Try it.

Color page in Batch to file


If you select color mode and scan grey and color pages, the output will be Grey for Grey abd color for color. If you had chosen to scan in grey mode, color will appear in Grey only. 
There is an option to scan in both color and B&W simultaneously under multistream option.
