Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 600F Flatbed Scanner
There are white spots (looks like dust) on my pictures after I scan them and view them at 100%. Have never had this problem previously. Have cleaned the glass carefully and it still appears. Please help!
Grey as you know is different shades of black. Uncompressed TIF can store this information. Compressed TIFF is not designed for this. Compressed TIFF is for blck & white only. Try JPG option. JPG can compress Color & Grey. For pure black & white chose TIFF compression.

1st step. Remove the lid. It just pulls out at the hinge end by lifting straight up, horizontal if you like. Where the two lid posts insert in the scanner body you will find 2 screws, undo them, no need to remove at this point, too hard. Rememeber you left them in there though.
2nd step. Around the 4 buttons at the control end is a striped trim panel that is the full width of the scanner. Locate the join between this trim and the light grey underside of the scanner body and just left and right of the COPY & EMAIL buttons, Using your fingernails lift with some gentle force. This edge will pop up. Note, the trim panel has 3 location tabs that insert under the grey border edge around the glass. So pop the front edge first and pull towards yourself.
3rd step. Once this trim is removed you will note 4 little grey plugs equally spaced under this area. remove the plugs and you will find 4 screws. Unscrew them, no need to remove, remember point above.
4th step. Time for CAUTION. You will be able to lift the upper part of the scanner up in which the glass is mounted. ***There is a lead with little play connected to the 4 buttons PCB which is attached to the upper panel. To ensure you don't damage it accidently when cleaning the glass you can remove the 2 screws attaching it to the upper panel.
5th step. See if you can wipe it, with a VERY SOFT LINT FREE cloth, without putting you finger on it somewhere......................
6th step. reassembly is the same in reverse

when scanning photos and especially magazines, don't go to low on the dpi (at least 300) and select DESCREEN as well as grain correction: HIGH

I have a Canon Lide 25 and I had a thin black stripe with a fat rainbow stripe in color mode and a bright light in grayscale mode.
I use canon scan toolbox, I checked the box for "display the scanner driver", in the advanced mode tab find calibration and click on execute.
If you have a different Canon scanner with a different software, look for calibration or adjustment.
