Document scans in reverse

The document is scanning in reverse -- not upside down or sideways, but literally backwards. One would need to hold the scanned document to a mirror to read it. Help!

Re: document scans in reverse

That means you are getting a 'mirror' output. What format is the output, is it PDF? Then you must have accidentally chosen the mirror switch on. Only after scanning, it is being changed, pls check your settings.

How do I stop the scanner from scanning the blank back of the page?

Somewhere in the settings for the scanner it is set to scan both sides. You need to go into the menu and change to one sided scanning. Another possibility is that you could be putting the document to be scanned in backwards.

Scans are coming out upside down

First, are you putting the pages to be scanned in upside down. If not, do so. I sometimes encounter this problem but use the free version of Adobe that comes with the scanner to turn the scanned pages right side up. Hope this helps.

Canon Lide 110 scans the image in upside down. Is there a setting to flip it automatically?

Unfortunately, that's normal for this particular model. If you read the manual, or in this case the Quickstart Guide, you'll note that the top left corner is meant to go into the arrow corner. I'm annoyed with it too. You can always do it in Post-processing by doing two "turn image 90 degrees". If there would be a setting, it would be in the scanning program as the driver for this scanner has no settings available; you would have to check to see if there's a 'reverse image' setting in the program, though I doubt it.

Document is scanning upside down

Easiest way to confront this problem is to rotate the material being scanned.
If you find the image of the item is being inverted then simply rotate the material being scanned by 180 degrees.
Additionally most scanning software will have a ROTATE function where you can rotate the image of the scanned material, usually in 90 degree increments which can be useful for editing purposes. You may find this function under Edit or Image in your scanning software.
Good luck! William

Scanner will not scan, says it is in locked position.

The locking tab protects the scanner's scan head by holding it securely in position. Lock the scanner when transporting it from one location to another, but always remember to unlock it before scanning. The scanner will not scan when locked

Looking the bottom, upside-down, with the back/bottom (power cord side) down. The lock is in the upper right corner. It is a slide style tab. Move up to unlock the bed.
Look on the users installation guide page 7 for illustration.
Need the guide, just ask.
Please let me know if this answers your question. OK

Pages come out crooked and upside down on their own - not operator error! Why does this happen and can it be fixed?

I had the same problem scanning to PDFs with the CanoScan Toolbox until I went to the File Settings dialog, and unchecked the option "Detect the Orientation of Text Documents and Rotate images". Now it seems to work more predictably (no more scans that have been rotated for no apparent reason).

Hello, We have a Canon 9080C with the latest release of Capture Perfect 3. Previously we have not had a problem but now, randomly, some pages are upside down. It is supposed to recognise a page...

I dont think the scanner can scan upside down. The image must be rotated after the scan. Any OCR software has confusion between 'L' & '7', S & 5, I & l (capital I and small L) and the OCR software rotates the drawing, based on initial perception. Just scan a set of Documents that were previously rotated while converting to PDF, as a JPG or TIFF file and check if the images are rotated.

How do i delete error pages after scaanning?

I changed the settings from duplex (double sided) scanning to simplex (single sided) scanning under the settings tab in the scansnap organiser. this was ok since i had all one-sided documents to scan. you would need to reverse this settings change anytime you have a double-sided document to scan.

Canon DR-9080C Duplex Rotation issue

Scan in portrait mode only. Of course this takes more time as compared to Landscape mode. The top module 'reads' left to right as we see it and the botom module 'reads' right to left, if you look from top. So if you scan in landscape mode and rotate, the back side is rotated by another 90 degrees and hence you see it upside down. If you are using PDF file and have Adobe Acrobat, you can specifically rotate odd or even pages.

Images upside down and backwards

The ADF does nothing more than feed the document into a position to be scanned, and has nothing to do with print issues " stripes" on print? Can you provide more details.

Typically you will find an icon near on the tray of the ADF which will display the proper orientation for the item to be scanned. If this is correct, then your software is somehow manipulating the image to a different orientation. You may want to check the scanned image before printing, and check the printer settings. More likely a printer problem, than a scanner problem as I have understood the issue thus far.
