    when I scan the entire image is yellow, lighter on the left and increasing as you move toward the right of the image, where the last 2 1/2 inches are a broad deeper yellow band running down the right side.
    I changed computers and the problem carries over to the 2nd computer.

My sahara Flatbed Scanner works fine except that I cannot find how to print without a "grey:" background. What should I do to print with a clear white background? Eric Schafer. Cape Town RSA.


you will find if you reduce the dpi the scanner is scanning the pictures or documents in, that you will not get a grey background , as you describe, what it is printing is actually the paper itself, if you have it set for say 1200 dpi then reduce it to 600 dpi or even 300 dpi and you will see the difference when you print it
or only select the exact area you want to scan in the document, click preview then move the scan area selection box to exactly fit the picture you want to scan

Re : CanoScan N640P/Lexmark Printing Problem.


There could be a setting in your scanner drivers to fix that. It would be under background settings.

The other thing you can do is preview the document first and select the area you want to scan. Then press the scan button again. That way the black background that isn't needed will not print.

Scanner error


Try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. If it occurs again, the the manufacturer of the scanner of yours may have some special thing (security) in the flatbed of the scanner. Like for example scanning money or so.

Gray backround


Does your scanner software give the option to choose different modes...grayscale, color, black & white?? This sounds like it's scanning in grayscale....if you can change it to black & white, the background should remain white.
