Question about Canon DR-9080C Path-Through Scanner

1 Answer

Cannot select a lower bit depth in colour than 24 bit?

Our office just upgraded from a DR-5020C which had selectable 8, 12, 16, 24 bit colour bit depths, to a Canon DR9080C, which seems to have 24 bit colour only. This is crazy. I hope it is something that can be addressed with different drivers or something?

If they do only 24 bit, then it is a retrograde step for us and the two new 9080c machines will have to go back to the supplier and we will not use Canon any longer.

Suggestions anyone?

Regards

With better processors and large storage, higher color depth is the order of the day; however if you dont want higher color depth, you can convert the images after scanning. Ofcourse it requires an addl effort.

The DR-9080c scanner will take a whole stack of papers (20 or so) and shove it thru the paper path, not just the top sheet. On old laser printers there was a paper pick that got slippery. Is there one in...


Ensure that the "BYPASS" button on the control panel is not illuminated. Make sure the "Standard Feeding " is selected in the driver. Try cleaning the lower separation roller. Make sure the separation roller is pressing up against the feed rollers. If the roller set is worn, order a replacement set of rollers (Google: Canon 9080 Exchange roller kit)

Lower reading unit broken?


Ensure you have selected Duplex option. Canon DR 9080C uses LED lights and hence the chances of failure of light source is fairly low. Try scanning in Color.
The scan module, if required, can be replaced and is available in the market between $600 to $750. Please ensure that the module is faulty before replacing. (the upper and lower modules are interchangeable, except for a few plastic parts)S. Mohan, Chennai, India

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.

After selecting the "colour' option,


Color scan files will be huge and it will take quite a time to process. Ensure that there is enough disk space in the computer to speed up the scanning.

Select Automatic brightness instead of manual. Alternatively you can select 'manual' and reduce the brightness till you you are comfortable with the quality of output.

Canon DR-5010C just black scans


I would completely uninstall the software, unhook the hardware, reinstall software toy around with the program a bit at this point. If the software states it WILL scan in color, I would go to Manufacturers site and download the latest version of the software.

Canon DR 2580C Scanning issue


In Captureperfect, select page size as 'Scanners Maximum'. Select automatic paper size, check the output now. If you select bigger paper size and smaller paper, you will see lack output, outside the paper area.

to check the page count install the driver and setup the scanner as a "scanner device" on your computer. Once you have done that , go to the "control panel" than "scanners and printers". Right-click on the device that says "Cannon DR-9080C" and select "properties". The device information will appear, than select the "counter" tab on the information box; the scan count will be listed.
