Question about Epson Perfection 1670 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Gray backround When I scan a page to copy then print the backround of the page has a light gray tint to it. If I print a page off the internet the page is fine, with a clear white backround. The 1670 flatdeck glass is very clean. What can I try to get the white backround back. It has always been fine until now. Thanks Lynn

Re: Gray backround

Does your scanner software give the option to choose different modes...grayscale, color, black & white?? This sounds like it's scanning in grayscale....if you can change it to black & white, the background should remain white.

Not able to scan and print as like copier

When you use a regular copier, it doesn't save, right? It just copies. That's the whole idea behind the Copy program that came with your scanner - for your scanner to operate as a copy machine. What you want is document management software.

Therefore, the very best solution is to download a (free) program that will convert files (Word, Excel, etc.) into PDF files. Click here for a list of such programs.

Suggestion: Never use image files for document management because they don't have any of the necessary features, such as the ability to search the contents of a digital document, the ability to comment, etc. And you want a program that will convert into PDF - try to stay away from other file formats as PDF (Adobe) is the "standard."

Faulty scanned images

Pls check your color Scan settings. Generally there will be some color difference between the original and scanned Image because, the original is 'reflected light' whereas, the scanned image is a 'source light' on the monitor. The monitor setting can also affect the color output. S. Mohan

Check the scanner settings in Captureperfect. Try scanning in color by selecting color mode. If it works then there is no Hardware issue.
