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

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.

Copying is very light while scan print fine


Unfortunately that is typical. You can set the copies to be darker, but often that just introduces gray areas that should be white.

Better to just scan and then print the pdf.

Lexmark 205 copy and scan pages have small gray blocks all over the page


If this is also happening when you're printing from your computer, then it could be a problem with your printhead. Try to update the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

After running the firmware update, perform a maintenance on the cartridges. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If you still see the same problem and your printer is still under warranty, contact our technical support team to have the printhead replaced.

Savin 2545 document feeder gives a gray band on the copies


Yes - surprisingly - we had the same problem, the gray stripe along the side of the page only showed up when the original was fed through the document feeder on top. Cleaned the small area of glass under the feeder repeatedly with no change to the resulting stripe, but then while cleaning the upper roller, above the area of glass where the scan lamp illuminates during the copying from the ADF, we found a small piece of paper adhering to the top roller in the paper path, cleaned it off, and no more band. We didn't see the bit of paper on the upper roller until we rolled it while cleaning. Still can't figure how that made a stripe....but hope this helps you.
