Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Colored section on right side.

When I scan there is a multicolor section on 1/3 of the right side. I read wehre I could take the scanner apart and clean the mirrors and lense. I did so and it still did not help.

    There was a yellow area along one-third of the image, now increasing to a red to yellow cast to the entire document.

    I have had my CanoScan 8400F for a few years now and I have really enjoyed it. Lately, however, large vertical bands of erroneous color have begun to appear on scanned images. It's not always the same color but typically pink or cyan.

You're not going to get that kind of output suddenly from dirty mirrors that are encased and not really exposed to outside elements. There is most likely something malfunctioning with the scanner.

How do you remove the top of the Magic Wand Portable Scanner to install the batteries for Vupoints model # ST415 magic wand?


The battery cover is the silver-colored "hump" on the right side of the scanner. Just slide it to the right, and it'll unhook from the scanner, giving you access to the battery compartment.

Color is faded on one side when scanned


Apparently you might need to because scanners are most times not reserviceablw when problems of faded output and discolouration is evident.

Properly clean the surface of the scanner and leave your scanning image application to default settings

I've had a similar problem with the streaks, lines and color bleeds appearing in the scan. Try uninstalling the all software and drivers for the scanner and reinstall. Worked for me. Have had to do this a couple of times since I've owned the scanner... about three to four years now.

Different colors on the scanner screen


I didn't find a fix. I went to Best Buy and they said it would cost more than it was worth to fix. So I bought a new one. Thanks, mittenshadow

Yellow Streak on Images


I took the scanner apart. Then using a dampened eyeglass cleaning cloth, I gently cleaned the 3 internal mirrors.
No more yellow streak! :)

This has something to do the brightness chosen. In the manual mode, if you choose a dark output, the output will have tis area also; if you choose, lighter output, it will omit. In the auto scan mode, the scanner decides what is the best output.

Epson cx4800 1/2 inch good scan, rest is multicolor tweed


the only thing that comes to mind is maybe the cable is partially crimped and as the scanner moves the wires dont touch. otherwise, its possible there is an issue with a main board.
