Re: Calibrating Scanner

I had the same problem but have solved it. What i think you might be doing wrong, is that you have the scan material the wrong way round. The womens face should be on the right side of the scanner with the colour input target centered against the ruler. Once i did this it worked first time

Neat receipt scans a black line through part of the page

That's all I got was a black strip. My solution was to get a new Neat Receipts mobile scanner. It works great and I didn't have to make any software changes. It was worth the price for a new one compared to all the hassles I had with the old one.

In the middle of scanning a document, the scanner became stuck

Scanners self align when they're calibrating. It might be possible to rest yours if you power it down, unplug it from both power as well as the computer. Give it a few moments, then power it back up and see how it does. If it's looking like it's reset, go ahead and reattach it to the computer, let it detect/install, then give scanning something a go.
Might right itself if we're lucky!
Best of luck, William

Xerox Documate 152 - Scan quality is now V.BAD!

I would go to and look up their knowledge base. Here is a copy of data from their site related to this problem:

Symptom: Scanned images have poor image quality, are fuzzy, unclear, or hard to read.
Cause: There are several things that can lead to poor image quality including the scan settings, dirt on the scanner, and driver problems. Solution: Note: If you scan as a PDF file and your scans look fuzzy when viewed in PaperPort, try right clicking on the file and selecting "Open" to open them in Adobe Reader. If they display fine in Adobe Reader then there is nothing wrong with the scans, it is simply that they are not being displayed well in PaperPort.

The following solutions can help resolve poor scan quality.

Solution 1 - Adjust the scan settings

Try increasing the resolution of your scan. 300 dpi to 400 dpi should be clear for most images
  • If you are scanning in Black and White, try Grayscale or Color. Some images will not display correctly in Black and White
  • You can also try adjusting the brightness and contrast
  • Note: For information on adjusting your scan settings, refer to the user guide for your scanner
Solution 2 - Clean and Calibrate the scanner

Note: Calibration only applies to sheetfed scanners.

Use the link below for instructions on cleaning and calibrating (if applicable) your scanner:
Solution 3 - Reinstall the scanner driver Select a link below for instructions on reinstalling your scanner driver:

I280 won't scan!

ImageCalibration means the cameras don't get enough light during their self test.
Please check the following points:
Are both lamps on or one lamp in case you have a single page scanner?
Are the imaging guides (the clear sheets above the cameras) clean?
Are the little white tags on the imaging guides present?
One tag on each imaging guide.
Without this small white tags the cameras are not able to check themself.
For emergency you can apply a small white paper or white insulating tape instead of missing tags to test the scanner.

If the lamps are light, both tags are present please calibrate the scanner with the kodak calibration sheets. You will find the calibration menue in the scanner validation tool. You can get this tool from the Kodak home page.

Error Code 009 Scanner out of paper

Right-click the VRS icon in the system tray. Select QC Modes and uncheck Hardware Errors. This will stop VRS from flashing the out of paper message.

(Also, ImageNow has it's own prompt when the scanner is empty. You can turn that off in the Scanning Profile on the Properties page.)
