    I have the same problem and couldn't scan images in full-color.

    The "band" which also appears in grayscale scan previews doesn't affect grayscale scans, although what used to be mildly white in the previews are now solid black.

My HP 6280 will not print the full picture after it has been scanned. I put it in the right hand corner, chose the correct paper size and it still won't print correctly. Can you please help

Check corner marking for placing the document, place the document & scan through system, verify whether you got full scanned image? if not adjust the placement in correct position, once its OK, go for print there select correct image size(could be 100%) & paper size..I hope it will solve the issue..Best of luck

There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.

If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.

When printed from a scanned image vertical bands appear

Well, now, jannyloubran,
I hope that I understand your question: are you saying that there are vertical bands when an image is scanned, and then printed? In other words, if you download, say, a picture from your digital camera and print it, no bands: but, if you scan a photograph, then print the scanned image, you get the bands?
Going on that assumption, I would guess one of two things is happening, and possibly both:
  1. The resolution (usually "dpi" in America) is set too low on your scanner to get a very good scan, and so the print is poor. To scan a picture, you really should set the resolution as high as your equipment will allow and your hard drive has space for (the higher the resolution, the more space the file created from the scan takes). Without getting too technical and getting into optical vs. interpolated resolutions, 1200 x 1200 is usually an adequate starting point that will give a decent image (hopefully sans bands) without taking up gigabytes of storage space per scanned photo. You need to open the scanning software that came with your printer and set the resolution higher. If you can't figure out how to do that, open the help file that came with it or go to From here, you can search their FAQ, ask a question from their knowledge base, send tech support an email, or get a phone number for support.
  2. If your scanner is an older one (you didn't specify), then it may be either worn out (unlikely) or simply not able to support a high-enough resolution for the quality we have come to expect.
Now, if it turns out that I have been having a bad dream and none of the above applies, please repost with more information as to exactly what you have to do to replicate the problem, including what, exactly, you mean by "bands" (black and white bands, bands of fuzzy focus, bands of off colors, wide bands, narrow bands, bands all the way from top to bottom or just halfway, or what?). Also, have you changed anything else between printing from the computer and trying to print the scanned image, such as new cartridges or aligning or cleaning the printhead? I know it's a pain to spell it all out, but sometimes that's the only way we geeks can figure out how to help—and, I hope this helps!

Random black lines on scanned slides

Normally dark lines are a speck of dirt sticking on to the glass and when scanned continuously, it appears as a line. Clean the glass thoroughly. Ensure the slides are dust free. If the lines are appearing in different locations, it means the dust gets removed while scanning. Line in the same place could be because of glass is scratched. The above is common with roller scanners.

For fat bed scanners, there will be no scratch on the glass. It must be from the slides/documents
