Clean the glass surface with Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA). Dont use any other solvent. You can also use a well wrung wet cloth to clean the glass.

    When lines appear in the scaneed image, the first step is to clean the glass. Specs of dust sticking will give a line in the output. If it still persisits, check if the inside of the scanner glass has dust. Does the line thickness (any line) vary with different levels of brightness? If so it is definitely dust problem. If the thckness remains the same, for a specific line, it could be failure of the sensor. It is also possible there is some hardware error.

Right side of document is black when scanning to print, umax 1220u


1. Fred's right about trying another computer, but you still may have wrong/ old driver- download demo version of Vuescan at www.hamrick.com and see if it's your software.
2. Partially blank pages can appear when you don't have sufficient memory for the scan, but that usuall loosees the lower half of the page.
3. The lamp is probably not the problem, because there is enough liht bouncing around in mostflatbead scanners that you would just see the image "fade"to black, not have a distinct line.
4. best bet is that something inside has come loose and is covering half the scanning sensor, or the mirrors that reflect the images to the sensor inside

How to scan from machine to PC


  • 1. Turn on your all-in-one printer and computer. Check the connections between the two machines.

  • 2. Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.

  • 3. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.

  • 4.Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.

  • 5. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.

  • 6. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.

  • 7. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.

  • 8. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.

  • 9. Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

    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.

    I want to scan a photo to my computer with " Hp deskjet F4240 all -in-one"??


    Open the lid on the HP scanner to reveal the scanning surface. Tthe scanning surface is the glass surface on which documents are placed for scanning.
  • Step 2 Put the picture face down on the scanning surface, using the positioning mark to set the picture. The positioning mark is normally an arrow and it indicates the correct placement of a document on the scanning surface for a good scan.
  • Step 3 Close the lid on the HP scanner.
  • Step 4 Press the "Scan To" button on the HP scanner and choose a format for the scan. "Scan to File" or "Scan to Email" are a couple of the choices. Press "OK" and your scan will begin. On your computer screen, a progress bar will let you know how your scan is going. Once the scan is complete, the folder where the file was scanned will appear on screen and you can click on it to ensure the quality of the scan.

    I have installed scanner and disc but cannot find how to use it.I found the test box and that works but now how do I scan?thanks


    Canon and other Scanners have both hardware and software buttons to scan documents and photographs.
    Scanning with a computer is done with a destination in mind. So the buttons and the software are associated with destinations.
    Typical destinations are File, email, Application, and print.
    In a simple scan process for copy or print, the item is placed face down on the scanner, then the print button is pressed on the front of the scanner.
    The software for the scanner pops up on the screen and the scanner moves the imaging light across the scanner under the glass, reading the item on the scanner. The software sends the image to the default printer and it prints a copy.

    You will need to setup your preferences in the software so that a photograph is scanned properly and a newspaper article is scanned to come out clear black and white.
    Documents are best saved as PDF files and photographs as TIFF files.
    The software will have an expert mode where you can change all the settings and a beginner mode where you let the software decide.
    Canon has a great document for your scanner. If it is not on the disk, here is the link. It is called CanoScan 4200F Scanning Guide. I think it will help you to use the scanner for any task.

    Hp scanjet 8250. I want to set my scanner to default to PDF when I am trying to email. That is the way we do most of our scanning and right now it defaults to RTF.


    Have you considered simply scanning from within Adobe Acrobat or similar software that produces .pdf and then use the email feature within Acrobat?

    As I look over the HP User Manual, I can't see any method to set the default output. It simply says...

    Use the E-MAIL button() to scan documents or pictures and insert them in an e-mail message as an attachment. You must have an Internet connection and a supported e-mail application.
    1. Place the original face down on the scanner glass or face up in the ADF. If you are scanning two-sided originals from an ADF, slide the DUPLEX switch to two-sided mode.
    2.Press the E-MAIL button().A message appears asking if the original is a document or a picture.
    3.Select Document or Picture, and click OK.Note:A preview image will not appear when scanning from the ADF. To change this preview setting, see the HP Photo & Imaging software Help.
    4. Select the final scan area (the area inside the dotted lines) in the preview image.
    5. Make adjustments to the preview image if needed.
    6. Click Accept.The final scan area is scanned and your e-mail application is opened. The scanned image is added as an attachment to the e-mail message.
    7. The Save As dialog box appears. Type a file name and choose a file type, and click OK.
    8. Complete the e-mail as usual.

    On preview & scanning I get total red colour image


    If you have loaded Adobe 8.X Reader, then unload it, and go to Adobe site and load Adobe 7.02 Reader. Problem will probably go away. Mine did, I can now scan in color again.

    We have also seen that Adobe Acrobat doesn't produce very clear scans (with a range of scanners). Adobe gives very good pdf file size but it downsamples images.
