Not sure what you mean by "too bright." Its not really a term used in scanning. Do you mean the image is "washed out", that is , the letters are not very dark and blends in with the white of the page?

If this is a Copiscan model with a few months into heavy scanning, the problem will be dirt and debris in the rear camera. Bowe Bell & Howell did not cover the entrance to the camera with a glass on the older Copiscan series, so when it gets full of dust, you get a washed out effect.

There is a service menu that will allow the technician to calibrate the camera, but it isn't open to the average customer. (A series of F1 thru F3 sequence). Also, if it is a model using a greyscale board instead of the Kofax avocet card, then there is a scsi normalization that will help. Also, take the rear lamp , with power off of course, pull it out , spin it around and place it back in.

I hava a canon dr-2010c scanner. but when I scan the paper through capture touch 2.0 than scanning very fine but when I scan through capture perfect 3.0 than show black page scanning.


Normally it is advisable to use only one Scanning Software. The software has various files which may overwrite the previously installed version. The later version works good.

It is also possible that the brightness/contrast settings in Captureperfect 3 is not proper. Try scanning after altering these.

Canon DR-5010C when settings are changed to Auto Detection for page size gets an error message stating that "Scanning parameters are incorrect." I want to be able to scan stacks of paper of various sizes....


If you are using CapturePerfect 3, select page size as Auto-detection, detect size by Image width, Deskew by roller & Image, then you will get images exactly as that of the scanned image.
If you ae using CP2, then you can select Auto-detection AND page detection. The problem with CP2 is if the image is less than that of the guide-plate, you will get black background. You can clean this through software.
If you had select B&W scanning and chosen to save file in JPG format, the scanner will report error. JPG is only for Color/ Grey scale.
With CP2, I have observed that sometimes, the changes are not retained, unless you select 'default' first and alter the parameters. This is not found in CP3.

MCF 6490CW SCAN AS A PDF


I was trying to figure out how to scan multi-page documents to a single file and found this on the Brother website:

Double-click on the ControlCenter3 icon located in the Task Tray to launch the program window.

Click on CONFIGURATION -> SCAN.

Choose the type of scan you require. The choices are: IMAGE,
E-MAIL, and FILE.

The Scan to configuration window will appear.

The SOFTWARE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to button within theControlCenter3 software interface. The DEVICE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to key on the Brother machine. Choose the tab you want to configure.

Under FILE TYPE select an option that allows multi-page documents:

a) PDF (*.PDF)
b) Tiff Multi-Page # Uncompressed (*.tif)
c) Tiff Multi-Page # Compressed (*.tif)

Click OK.

Unable to scan or copy.


I also just found that I have the same problem. I called HP and of course it is out of warranty. I have only scanned a few things.
I have never had any luck with HP/Compaq. I think it's safe to say, "Don't buy HP Compaq". We also have a Compaq Laptop that it a POS, too.

Xerox 510 will not scan from ADF


If it is new, and not assuming there is a hardware problem with the scanner (some fault), might be a software problem. If the scanned image from the flabed is OK the drivers would be installed properly. You do not say which software you are using but when you have a "Professional" documentscanner and intend to use it for "production" scanning you need proper software also, To scan, to mix documents, rearrange pages, auto remove blank pages, deskew, produce small PDFs even when scanning color and so on. Look at PixEdit - it will do the job for you.
