I can't figure out how to scan something. The Wand turns on, but it won't start scanning. I even tried the white balance calibration?

Hi Karen,

Do you have a micro scan disk inserted? The scanner will not work without one. Insert the disk in the slot next to the Format button. Turn the unit on then press the format button to format the disk. To scan a document, you press the scan buttton once, then release the button. Slowly move the wand over the document to be scanned. When you have finished scanning, press the scan button once again.

Hope this helps,

Marcus

Welcome to Fixya

Check all the settings. Press the DP button and select high resolution. Press the C/BW button and select Color is you are scanning pictures. Clean the lens using a soft cloth and start scanning again. Re-install the software disk that came with it.

Thank you for using Fixya!

When I scan a document to my computer it comes with blue background


This is usually caused by the white balance being on manual instead of automatic. You can correct it on the scanning applet control panel (varies depending on your driver OS and version), or after acquisition in whatever program you use to manipulate the image.

Also (rarer) it could be caused by a yellowing of the automatic white balance calibration strip which is under the glass, near the scanning head homing position.

White lines across my scanned images


I had the exact same problem! the problem seems to be with the CCD calibrating itself before it starts to scan.

If you look into the scanner, the scanner glass extends itself into the casing of scanner where the CCD rests. Every time before the scan starts the CCD starts to calibrate itself in its housing before it starts to scan. If there is any reminiscence of dust or anything object (like a piece of paper) stuck in the edges where the CCD rest, the white balancing is thrown off and it causes white lines to appear along the entire line where the dust was present.

Ideally the solution would be to open the scanner casing to clean the housing where the scanner CCD rest. This would solve the problem.

If you are unable to open the scanner casing, then try using a piece of paper or a thin edge of a cloth, slightly dampened to reach into the edge of the scanner glass where the CDD rests and clean it. This is what i did and this solved the problem.

Xerox Documate 152 - Scan quality is now V.BAD!


I would go to Xerox.com and look up their knowledge base. Here is a copy of data from their site related to this problem:

Symptom: Scanned images have poor image quality, are fuzzy, unclear, or hard to read.
Cause: There are several things that can lead to poor image quality including the scan settings, dirt on the scanner, and driver problems. Solution: Note: If you scan as a PDF file and your scans look fuzzy when viewed in PaperPort, try right clicking on the file and selecting "Open" to open them in Adobe Reader. If they display fine in Adobe Reader then there is nothing wrong with the scans, it is simply that they are not being displayed well in PaperPort.

The following solutions can help resolve poor scan quality.

Solution 1 - Adjust the scan settings

Try increasing the resolution of your scan. 300 dpi to 400 dpi should be clear for most images
  • If you are scanning in Black and White, try Grayscale or Color. Some images will not display correctly in Black and White
  • You can also try adjusting the brightness and contrast
  • Note: For information on adjusting your scan settings, refer to the user guide for your scanner
Solution 2 - Clean and Calibrate the scanner

Note: Calibration only applies to sheetfed scanners.

Use the link below for instructions on cleaning and calibrating (if applicable) your scanner:
Solution 3 - Reinstall the scanner driver Select a link below for instructions on reinstalling your scanner driver:

CanoScan Scanner can not complete a scan


Double-check all connections and try another port if possible. There may also be damage to cables or pins. Do you have another cable to try? Do other devices work in the same port?

Scan coming in all black with DocketPort 485


The first thing that you should try is to calibrate the scanner. If you don't have the calibration paper you can use a blank white 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. This should clear it up. If it fails calibration after repeated tries you most likely have broken the lens or the image sensor is no longer working. If that is the case then there isn't much you can do i would suggest contacting the manufacturer and hoping that unit is still in warranty.
