When scanning color prints, some scan large to fill in the screen and some scan quite small and only take up a small area of screen. I am not doing anything differently.

SOURCE: Black area above the scanned image.

If you set Automatic brightness/Contrast this happens. Try manual setting. Adjust different settings and select the best suited for a particular type of drawing. The scanner takes couple of milliseconds to judge the best lighting, by then the paper has moved little. This area appears black. This is easily solvable.

SOURCE: Grayblue Background on scans

A color scan will give real output as it is. If the background is grey, the output will also be grey. If you select 256 Color output, there may be small change in color, as compared to the original. If you select grey output, all colors will be converted to Grey. If these files are converted to PDF, it will be same, except in ODF format.

If you select B&W you can save the file in TIFF format. Unlike grey or color, each pixel can be either black or white only. To scan in black and white you must select right brightness. By doing os you can eliminate background (technically noise) and capture foreground(data)

SOURCE: sometimes when it is scanning the light moves

Hello,
You might have to calibrate the scanner from time to time. The software included should have some type of calibration options. Without calibration, the scanner's "scanning capabilities" deteriorate over time.

SOURCE: Is there a way to define scan area settings in

Interesting question. I don't think there is a solution from CP3. It is logical to assume that front and back sides are of the same size and hence there is no provision in the software. One option is to scan once for say top side(left margin) and change the settings (select reverse scanning, i.e, bottom side only) and alter the margin as required, nevertheless you will have to scan twice. You can also crop after the images are generated separately, but it is difficult to separate odd and even images, assuming there is a large number.

My officejet pro 8500A prints black vertical lines down the page when I make a copy. I have cleaned and aligned the printheads. What else can I do?


Happened with me too. Turned out to be a small sticky smudge on the ADF glass. That is the smaller glass scan area to the left of the large glass scanning area.
When using the ADF to scan or copy, make sure the smaller glass area is clean along with the rollers.

Color doesn't look like what is on computer screen... printing from InDesign and Photoshop... same results from each program.


first of all, your screen is probably not correctly calibrated to show the colors right. Same goes for your copier, try calibrating the colors. Press the menu button (it's a button next to the screen, looks like a star with a head around it)

- Then press Adjustments/Cleaning
- Auto Gradation Adjustment
- Full adjust
- Print page 1
- Put the paper on the copyglass, with the black toner facing the back of the machine.
- Press Scan
- Then Print page 2
- Scan page 2
- Print page 3
- Scan page 3.

Now the colors are calibrated. If it still doesn't match, try calibrating your computers screen so you can see the real colors.

SCANS PAGE IN TOO LARGE


Uncompressed TIFF files are large in size. If you want Black & white and also small size save in TIFF G4 format. JPG files are small, but only color and grey files can be stored in JPG format.

Printing an enlarged version of a scanned photo


The best way is to use software like Corel PhotoPaint and RESAMPLE the pix to the sze you want. YOu typically will get better resolution.

You could also try selecting the "Fit To Page" setting of the printer window before you tell it to print.

HP Laserjet3030 steaks/lines in flatbed photo scans.


Are printed pages clean?
If so, clean the narrow strip of glass on the left side of the main scan glass.
If printed pages are dirty as well, then probably a defective toner cartridge -replace

*please rate me:)

Scan Snap - color/balck & white


You don't need to scan the doc again. If you have a graphics editing program (like Photoshop) you can change the mode to Grayscale and resave it. I bet you by now you probably have rescanned it anyway :)

Black streaks are appearing on printed page when scanning


Do the lines only show up if you use the document feeder? If so, there is something on the strip of glass where the page is scanned. Open the top to reveal the large glass area. Then open the part where the paper feeds in when using the document feeder. It will flip open from right to left. There are two pieces to this, so make sure you grasp it as low as possible. You should see a small strip of glass. Clean all the glass with a SOFT cloth. Don't spray any cleaner onto the glass, rather, spray it onto the cloth if you need any.

Good luck!
