Question about Mustek Plug-n-Scan A3 EP Flatbed Scanner

Open Question

Horizontal banding When I scan anything, the final scanned image is made up of fine horizontal bands, or ribs . With colour or greyscale, the bands are various shades of colour or grey; with lineart, the bands look like a kind of feathering effect. Additionally, the scanner scans brighter, or perhaps with more exposure, at the top of the image. The focus seems unusually sharp, too: it's picking up on the grain of the paper more than before. Does anyone have any ideas?

SOURCE: Problem with my A3 flatbed scanner

The preview, if it is thumbnail picture, it is difficult ti decipher. Dont worry about that. Pencil drawings are very light and needs higher contrast. Try a few options and you can select the best one. If you scan a pencil drawing in grey, it may appear light and also file size will be bigger.

SOURCE: When I scan I cannot edit the image scanned

Start by opening the software on your computer that you would use to edit an image. From within that software find a way to access the scan feature... the interface for this may say "Twain". You would probably find that option under the File heading. Then edit using the software.

SOURCE: Hi, a Canon DR-9080C scanner will not scan A3

All I can think of with Scanners is RAM and hard Drive space. You need heaps of BOTH. Especially hard drive space.

I would expect the problem with the Capture perfect fike size is down to the compression chosen for the output file. Ideally black and white inahes should be Group 4 TIFFs and Colour or Greyscale should be JPEG. Alternatively you may want to check the scanner is set to 'scan ahead' in the twain settings in Acrobat. If it is set to anything else the scanner will slow down to allow the PC to process every image. With 'Scan Ahead' turned on the scanners memeory buffer the PC speed a little giving you faster scanning.

Negative Scanning Problem Using Epson Scan Software


Make sure the rectangular slots at either end of the film frame are not obstructed or covered in any way. When I attempted to scan color negatives I had the same darkness problem in the scanned image. When I cleared those rectangular slots, everything was fine. I hope this helps.

DR-9080C BackgrounfColour Dropping Out


Color scanning is a big technology. There are concepts like Hue and intensity, refer to wikipedia for explanation. There is something called source light (your monitor for example) and reflected light (your picture that is being scanned). After scanning properly, say you view on a monitor where the Brightness & Contrast are not proper, you will see the image poorly! To test the scanning scan absolute white and check the output. It should read the values 255,255,255 for RGB (Red, Green & Blue). If the values are 255,255,255 but still the image does not appear white on the monitor, it is monitor setting that is wrong. If the output is not 255,255,255 then CANON service personnel only can help. Any good imaging software will display the RGB values.

CANON uses LED light source and they have fairly long life as compare to scanner bulbs. It is okay if you use a powerful system, but it has limited role as the scanner does all the jobs and it only sends the data to the Comp. May further processing is better withe high performance CPU and large RAM.

Horizontal Banding


From the Microtek KB: www.microtek.com Scans that produce lines, fading, and discoloration generally result from a corrupt scanner driver installation or a burned out lamp. To determine if your problem is caused by a burned out lamp, simply open the scanner lid and check the color of the lamp. If the color is a shade of red, pink, or green, then the lamp is burned out. Perform a scanner preview to get a clear view of the lamp. If the lamp is a bright white and the problem still exists, please contact technical support.
