Black lines can be caused by dust on the plastic imaging guides. Some models use a philips screw, older models use a Torx screw to hold down the guides. If you remove the guides, blow it out but don't use canned air. Canned air can leave a propellent film on the mirrors inside. Use a hair dryer on cool, or a air pump blower from walmart ( for blowing up air mattresses).

Then:

1. calibrate your scanner using the Kodak calibration target (12x12). Sometimes a very white 8 1/2 by 11 sheet will work.

2. change your scanner threshold from "ithresholding" to (not sure if I remember it exactly ) but I think it's called "atp." I-thresholding is really agressive at darking your images up, but will also bring out any weaknesses in your camera ccd's.

    Also, the scanner camera could have some weak pixels and needs replacing. The lamps for this model last a long time and rarely need replacing. But a service rep will have to replace these items.

I have kodak i2600 scanner, when i was scanned document its getting black lines on the document how to solve this problem please help me


Black lines on most any scanner will be caused by dirt in the scanning system, or by a damaged/defective scanner sensor. You can clean the window.

When I scan a receipt a 2" line (vertical) appears. I've purchased and tried the cleaning kit but it didn't remove this black line. Please help


It seems as though the scan bar (the bright light strip that scans the document) has a faulty receptor. It needs servicing or replacement. Assuming it's under warranty take it back to your supplier for repair/replacement/refund.

Lines across scan


It appears to be a freak problem. The best way is to bring it to original condition. Try uninstalling the scanner, run Scandisk on the Comp, Switch off and reinstall the driver. this may work.

Have long experince with PixEdit program using Kodaks. PixEdit usually comes around it after a firmware upgrade on the scanner. Not sure about this specific model but at least OK on other models of Kodak.

I280 won't scan!


ImageCalibration means the cameras don't get enough light during their self test.
Please check the following points:
Are both lamps on or one lamp in case you have a single page scanner?
Are the imaging guides (the clear sheets above the cameras) clean?
Are the little white tags on the imaging guides present?
One tag on each imaging guide.
Without this small white tags the cameras are not able to check themself.
For emergency you can apply a small white paper or white insulating tape instead of missing tags to test the scanner.

If the lamps are light, both tags are present please calibrate the scanner with the kodak calibration sheets. You will find the calibration menue in the scanner validation tool. You can get this tool from the Kodak home page.

Random black lines on scanned slides


Normally dark lines are a speck of dirt sticking on to the glass and when scanned continuously, it appears as a line. Clean the glass thoroughly. Ensure the slides are dust free. If the lines are appearing in different locations, it means the dust gets removed while scanning. Line in the same place could be because of glass is scratched. The above is common with roller scanners.

For fat bed scanners, there will be no scratch on the glass. It must be from the slides/documents

Kodak i260 problem


A line appears if a dust particle on the scanner glass is scanned continuously. Clena the galss with Isopropyl alcohol, dont use any solvent. If the line persists even after this, there could be some sensor problem. If accidentally a paper with a staple pin is inserted, the pin can cause scratch and a line will appear.
