Question about Bell & Howell Copiscan 8000 Spectrum Series Path-Through Scanner
Well the frotn page scanning is ok but the back pages are to bright any advise what to do it shouldn be a software problem
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.

It must be software setting. Try auto setting, else slightly darken output. You can also revers the same image and try out
