Question about Fujitsu FI-6140 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

We just started to having a problem scanning documents. We're getting a black "border" around the edges of all documents we now scan. Previous documents do not have this. We tried adjusting the paper feeder, but that didn't help. Is there a configuration setting that's off? (sorry the manual didn't cover this.)

There is a horizontal offset and a vertical magnification adjustment in the scanning software settings.

When I'm scanning a document on Canon 7580 each page will show up on my computer screen with a slighly different margin (keeps shifting left to right). The document is being fed into the scanner...


Under CapturePerfect3, you can choose to deskew the scanned image while scanning itself. Also select 'Image only" radio button instead of 'Guide Plate'. The software will remove black borders around the image.

Canon Scanner DR-2580-C (Black lines around border of document)


It seems that your scanner is conflicting with previously installed software. It is impossible to say whether it is Canon or Adobe. Reinstalling Acrobat or updating it may work as trying a different folder like Desktop instead of My Documents. One or more drivers are at fault. What system are you running? 2000, XP, Linux? Update your video rendering software too. Let me know so that I can help solve this issue. Just try as mentioned first.

How do you scan?


Open the Applications folder on the hard disk on which MP Navigator is installed, then open the Canon Utilities folder and double-click the navicon.gif MP Navigator 3.0 icon. MP Navigator opens.
2. Point to Scan/Import and click 'Photos/Documents (Platen)'.

3. Place the document face-down on the platen glass, and select 'Document Type'.
How to place the document and Document Type depends on the document to be scanned.
navscandocwindow.gif
How to place the document
Allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen glass and the document.
Align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.

  • When you select Color Photo or Black and White Photo, the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly if you do not leave 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen glass and the document.
  • When you select Color Photo or Black and White Photo, the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, select Document Size such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned.
  • When you select Magazine(Color), the Descreen function will be enabled and scanning takes longer than usual. To reset the Descreen function, disable Descreen in the Scan Settings dialog box.

4. Click 'Specify'... and set the preferences as required.
The Scan Settings Dialog Box opens. Specify the Document Size and Scanning Resolution.

  • When Document Size is Auto Detect or Auto Detect(Multiple Documents), the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, select Document Size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned.
5. Click 'Scan'.
Scanning will begin.
When the document has been scanned, the scanned image is displayed in the Thumbnail List area.

Uneven black border showing up on scanned documents


Most scanners scan the whole "bed" not just the document lying on it. Where no part of the document covers the bed usually appears as black.

Normally when scanning you are offered and option whether to scan the whole document or a portion thereof. When previewed, a dotted line appears around the portion the scanner thinks you want, you have to re-arrange that box so that it lies just within the part or the document you require.

Should this not resolve the issue the menu options on
the left hand side of the Xerox web page should guide you to a resolution.

One side of the scanned document is black


If the borders of the black strip are crisp, then there could be some hardware problem, in the scaniing module. If it is jaggered and varies depending upon the contrast chosen, then may be something is stuck to the glass. Clean with Isopropyl Alcohol only.

Scanned documents are very light


I have found that when scanning b/w documents, its helpful to start with a black and white copy, not a grayscale, pen written, or printed form a printer in grayscale mode copy, but a true black and white on the copier or fax copy. The scanner doesnt read shades of black so well and when scanning multiple page documents, my pixma tends to scan in lightly. I havent found a piece of software to do just this, batch darken what has been scanned (at least not for free). Copying before scanning is the work around. Hope this helps everyone who's had this problem. It also doesnt hurt to darken what your scanning down a notch when copying

Do not scan black color


When scanning small or very dark images, its a good idea to place the item to be scanned on the glass, then place 8.5x11 white paper over the top of it.
This gives the scan software "edges" that it can recognize, and once scanned the image can be "cropped" to remove the white from its border.
This has worked on all (4) the different brands I use.

How to get rid of a black strip (1") on the leading edge of scanned documents?


You must be using Auto contrast/brightness. Change to manual, try one or two scans changing the brightness tab moving left or right and choose desire output quality. Remember the settings for that set of documents. The brightness will vary depending upon data (foreground) and noise (background). For a different set of docs you may need to adjust the settings slightly.
