Hi Supports user-specified installation Removes unwanted blue cast from scanned color images.Update your Driver , Click the below link for your scanner Model http://driveragent.com/archive/10242/64-1-531?q=microtek+3880+scanner+displays+blue+shade
Try placing your paper at different places on the scan bed. Also if you have fluorescent lights on nearby turn them off.
Also is your driver compatiible with your OS?
Did you recnently upgrade anythin?
If running XP SP2, then try clicking Start > right click My Computer > properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > expand Imaging devices > right click on your Microtek ScanMaker > uninstall > Re boot > and let XP pick up the device and let the found hardware wizard configure it.
I have seen plenty of hardware that when following the devices manufacturer's instructions for install, such problems as you're having occur and XP SP2 usually will cure it, though you may still need the device manufacturer's CD (for the driver) in your optical drive.
