The scanner creates a Raster Image and if it is grey or color, the size is big. After a few images are scanned, the 'buffer' inside the scanner is full. It may take more time to process the scanned image by the scanner if it is 24 bit color. The image is sent to the computer Harddisk and if the disk is full or if it had not been defragged for a long time, the sectors may not be contiguous for speedy writing, This will slow up the scanning. Ensure the disk has large space. 'Scan ahead' slows down scanning speed. (Without scan ahead, the next page is fed only after processing, whereas when selected, just after the previous page is scanned, the scanner start the next one)

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.
Try uninstalling and reinstall the scanner again. Try on a different computer. If even after this the problem remains, may be the there is some hardware fault (failure of light) in the scanner. How is it in color?
While I am trying to scan the images, I am getting the error Code[ffff:0024] & I am unable to scan anything from Epson 1500 model. While I switch on the scanner, it sounds lot from the scanner for continuous 2 minutes. I couldn't get scanned anything ... please give me the solution.
If you set Automatic brightness/Contrast this happens. Try manual setting. Adjust different settings and select the best suited for a particular type of drawing. The scanner takes couple of milliseconds to judge the best lighting, by then the paper has moved little. This area appears black. This is easily solvable.
Grey as you know is different shades of black. Uncompressed TIF can store this information. Compressed TIFF is not designed for this. Compressed TIFF is for blck & white only. Try JPG option. JPG can compress Color & Grey. For pure black & white chose TIFF compression.
