These scanners are pretty cheap. So cheap that I wouldn't recommend even fixing one. They are what we call in the scanner service industry as "throw away." Get them for lite use for a couple of years. Don't waste money on a service contract. (At 400 a hour plus parts? Naaa!) This is probably on my list of one of the all time crappy scanners made. Sorry it may not be what you want to hear, but just get another brand name.

Horizontal line on all pages after scanning


Open the cover and clean the glass on the top and the glass on the bottom. Use a soft cloth. You can slightly dampen the corner of the cloth with water and rub them clean. Inspect the glasses for deep scratches.

Am unable to use the feeder tray - it keeps saying paper jam. There is no jam -- something seems to be blocking the mobility of the paper. I have it on "office" use and the regular scan works one...

When try to scan, lamp warms up then message received is scanner could not scan. 22 is NOT blinking. The scanning mechanism begins move across the page but only moves about half inch.


The scanner may have one of two problems:

1. Scanner lamp has failed or does not come up to full color temp

2. Scanner attempts to initialize, which means it must move a bit to what is the "home" position where the scanner actually reads a very small coded imprint on the underside of the glass. If this area is too dusty or dirty, that will cause this problem, but also if the scanner motor and worm drive are binding for any reason, such as the scan rails internally being too dry this will also happen.

Locate a service manual and remove the copy glass by removing the lock guide on one side, the glass should lift partially, allowing some gentle cleaning with soft cloth and glass cleaner. Do not attempt to force the scanner to move inside, as it is worm gear driven and such an attempt will strip the nylon gears or worse.

Follow the manual instructions if you need to fully remove the top
cover, glass and platen assembly for cleaning. It is very simple once you are in the interior...but gentleness and care are necessary.

Sadly, parts are difficult to find for all scanners now, and it is often far more economical to replace with a new, low cost and higher performing, higher rez unit for $ 120 or less. Often a lot less.

Good Luck!

Hi My Canoscan 9950f flatbed scanner glass has been smashed........ Is that the end of the road for it?? Or can it be fixed?


I had the same problem, shipping the scanner from Olympia, WA, to Austin, TX, the main glass broke (the sheet of glass you see when you open the scanner lid when it is set to scan an opaque object like an 8x10). I ordered a replacement part from the Canon parts center in New Jersey (732-521-7230) and at the time she told me there were only two left in the country, so you might be able to get the last one.

To replace it you just need to lift off the scanner cover, remove one scree in the bottom of each of the two wells the cover posts fit into, and lift the dark plastic part on the back of the scanner up (I think there are a couple of plastic snaps on the back side but they are not easily broken. Just pull up uniformly on both sides. Then you can remove the broken glass and put the new sheet in (align the plastic guides on the new sheet just like the ones on the old one were aligned).

Unfortunately, my scanner still doesn't work -- so I may have to give up on it. It seems stuck on a fairly well known failure code (2,178,0) when I start to scan and Canon customer support says there are no authorized service centers for the 9950F (I wonder if all their scanners are not repairable?).

I cannot get clear scans from my photo negatives


If you are seeing pixelation, the issue is either insufficient resolution during the scanning process or a problem with the output device. If it's a focus issue, which will NOT cause pixelation, the problem may be the height of the negative holder. The Epson Perfection V series scanners have a fixed focus point which only adjusts between two settings depending on whether you select the film holders (which raise the film off the glass) or the film guide (which scans film directly on the glass) in the software options. If you are going to scan transparencies or negatives, familiarize yourself with the holder height adjustment issue and be willing to experiment with different height settings until you are getting optimum results. This is not documented much at all in the Epson user manual but there is a little bit about it, including some examples of results at different settings, here: http://www.photo-i.co.uk/Reviews/interactive/Epson%20V700/page_13.htm Apparently every scanner is slightly different so even though the lowest holder foot setting (default) is working best for some, other settings work better for others. On my V700, I have the feet on the film holders set to the highest setting plus I shimmed them with a 1mm piece of styrene before I could get the scans in focus. Once I found the right height though, I've been able to get beautiful scans from this machine. BTW, scanning negs directly on the glass will almost always result in Newton Rings.

There is a spot on the thin strip of glass that sits next to the large scanner glass. Because you are moving the paper when using the feeder, a spot appears as a line. Shining a flashlight on the glass can help you locate it. You can scrape it off with a finger nail or clean it with a damp cloth.
