Clean the glass thoroughly with a damp cloth. Dont use solvents. Check if the glass is scratched, if scratched you may need to replace it.

Line on image


Canon 6080-7580 & 9080 are notorious for developing lines on scanned images on either front or rear pages. Verify that the shading units are extending properly & have no black debris by opening the transport fully then depressing the green button on the control panel until the shading plates extend (with power on). Lines are also often due to very light scratches on the reading units glass but can also be caused by dust contaminating the reading unit. For this reason it is strongly recommended to NOT use compressed air around the reading units as it tends to blow dust particles into the reading units. Per Canon, the reading units are not field serviceable but can be disassembled if due care is used when removing the CCD assembly from the back of the unit. Cleaning the CCD array with a soft cloth lightly moistened with alcohol will often be enough to fix lines. If the glass has severe scratches, buffing them out with jewelers rouge may work. There are a few entities that will refurbish these reading units as well.

EPSON WORKFORCE 840 AUTO FEED COPIES HAVE BLACK LINE DOWN THE SIDE


This was my exact problem. When scanning from the ADF, I had a vertical black line down every page. I cleaned the larger glass surface several times with no effect. Then, I discovered that ADF scans do NOT use the large glass area, but use the smaller, thinner glass area on the left side. It has a piece of thin plastic over the top of the glass. The scanner is fixed and the paper rolls through this area. So, if a speck of dirt is under the thin plastic piece or on top of the glass or on top of the thin plastic, it results in a black line down the whole page. Aha, so now I cleaned the thin plastic (both sides) and the top of the glass under the thin plastic - actually saw the black dot that was causing the problem and voila, problem solved.

DR-6080 not recognised after reloading Windows 7 (32-bit) on laptop. Re-installed latest driver (says Win7 supported) successfully but still won't work, Anything?


Disconnect the scanner from the computer. Uninstall driver software, shut down and restart the Comp. Reinstall the driver. (http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0036991.asp?model= ). connect the scanner and the system will report USB device plugged in. This should work.

Hi - When scanning documents on a Canon DR 6080 the scan comes out in all black. I have cleaned the glass and rollers etc.


Check if the brightness setting is manual or Automatic. Try different levels of brightness. Do you have the same problem on both sides?

I have a canon 6080 scanner. getting a error "no


Clean the two 'black dots' in the paper tray, just under the roller. They are actually paper sensors. Try 'page counting'. If this works, the scanner is okay. If the problem still persists, try reloading the scanning software.

Canon dr 6080 scanner is getting papers but i dont know where the scanned images are being saved and whether being saved or not?


What scanning software are you using? Once you initiate scan command, the software will ask for location (and format) where you want to save the files. After scanning, try & use 'Save as' command, by default it will go to where it is already saved. Alternatively, search for the file name under Windows.
