Question about Visioneer Strobe XP 300 Pass-Through Scanner

1 Answer

Loaded Visioneer Strobe XP 300 with PaperPort 11 on Win7 machine, but all scans come out black. Any ideas out there? Previously I had the same scanner working fine on an XP machine. Maybe there is an activation issue, but I don't see any indication that the programs are not active.

Did you calibrate the scanner on the Windows 7 machine? When you calibrate, a file is saved on the host computer - if you do not calibrate, everything is black.

In case you dont have a calibration sheet, I just uploaded one to FixYa - it will take a few days for moderators to review it, but then you can print it out on both sides of a single sheet of paper (so that the arrows are pointing at the same end of the paper, but on both sides of it) and use that to calibrate your scanner - make sure that you have 'edge to edge' printing turned on, as there cannot be any white space on the sides of the black space.

Can you also Fax with this One Touch 8900 ?


This is only a scanner. To Fax, you will need a separate fax machine or fax modem. If both the scanner and fax machine are connected to your computer, you will be able to scan the document and then fax it from the computer. (Depending on your OS/software, this could be easy or take several steps. For Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can use Windows Fax and Scan to do both steps. (However, the program doesn't scan to PDFs.) Paperport will also send a scanned document to an installed fax option. PaperPort is part of the third-party software that came on the CD with the scanner.)

Documentation for the Visioneer OneTouch 8900 is available here: http://support.visioneer.com/products/8900/default.asp .

I hope this helps.

(There are some email-to-fax and web-to-fax options but I have not reviewed them.)

Hp laserjet 2010 prints black line down side when printing scans from paperport 11


I have no idea what "paperport 11" is.
That being said, normally a line down the page when copying or scanning is caused by dirt on the Automatic Document Feeder glass, Not the flatbed glass. It is a thin strip of glass to the left of the flatbed scanner glass. Clean it.

I have paperport 9.0 and I can't get it to work with Windows 7 which I just installed.


PaperPort 9 is not supported for Win7. You need to upgrade your product or use a Virtual computer running a different OS. PaperPort 10 is being tested with Win7. PaperPort 11.2 and PaperPort 12 are fully supported under Win7. (My household has PaperPort 11. It doesn't work consistently with Win7 and a generic Win7 driver for an older scanner.)

With Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you have the option of downloading and installing the XP mode. (This actually takes two downloads.) Once you are running the virtual XP computer, you can install the PaperPort 9 and the scanner (if you want to capture the files from there). To share images with the real computer, files may need to be stored to external media. Hardware can only be installed to one "computer" and you will be prompted to uninstall the device from the other computer.

I hope this helps.

Black scans from strobe xp 300


I had the same problem. It's because of the Paper port software.
- Remove Paper port from Add/Remove in Control Panel
- Use Windows' native scanning software by clicking to the scanner icon which should appear like your own Strobe xp 300 and use the first command from the list.
- From there, Windows should guide through final step
That should solve your problem
