Can i skip blank pages while scanning duplex with a 5080c using capture perfect 3.0?

There is option to skip Blank pages. You have to specify in terms of percentage, above which the scanner will save and discard images below the specified percentage.

I tried to scan a document yet when it was saved in my file, it just appeared to be whole blank page. No text or even colored that is scanned.

I have many years repairing Canon scanners here is what I think may be wrong with yours.

Before I tell you the really bad news. Make sure you didn't install any new programs that may conflict with your scanning software. Another words an additional program that can do scanning some times the drivers for both programs don't play nice with each other. If you did then remove the last one you installed and reinstall the one you always have used in the past. Also a couple of suggestions first lower your dpi setting in your software to 200 or 300 dpi and save it at that. Then reboot (restart) your computer and try to scan something at that setting. If after you scan at that setting you get a all white page (blank page) then the bad news is the photo lens in your scanner is defective. I recently purchased a Canon Pixmar scanner/printer at walmart for under $60.00 I am saying this to you because it will be much cheaper to purchase a new scanner then to spend good money repairing the one you currently have now.

I hope this helps you out and if it did please leave me some feedback.

Scannanning of two pages in one document

There is a couple of ways to do this.
1. Scan each page and use an Optical Recognition Program to convert each page into a text and then place the text into a Word document.
2. Scan each page and save the images as a JPEG file then open a blank Word doc file and place each image on a separate page.

While you are scanning an Doc, you need to change the scan type from Image to Doc.

When i scan a letter 2 page is scanned:letter and blank page

You may be set for front & back (duplex) scanning. Change the setting for front only or simplex. This could be done with check/uncheck boxes, a drop-down menu, or a keyboard shortcut. I believe the standard Kodak settings are via check boxes.
This model is also capable of putting out color & bitonal (black&white) images simultaniously. If that's the case the pages should be separate image files. Uncheck either color or bitonal depending on which you want.

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

CANON 2080c scanner not scanning bottom quarter inch of page

Check your scan settings. If you have chosen A4 and the paper is slightly bigger, this can happen. It is also possible when the scanner does not pick up the paper in the first attempt because it is worn out. In such an event, you may find a blank on the top of the image. Clean the rollers with a damp cloth. Dont use solvents.
