Are you scanning with Capture Perfect?

Dear Heidi,

We too recently replaced our scanner this summer. The model was a Xerox Documate 3640. The scans were experiencing the same issues; stripes on every page. We did the same cleaning, and roller replacement. In the end, the problem was two small (very hard to see) scratch marks on the scanning glass. We used a magnifier from the AT area to find the scratches. We attempted to buff it out, which different cleaners, with no luck. The cost to replace the glass was half the cost of a new scanner.

Since using more publisher relations and Access Text Network, we aren’t scanning at the same volume lately. I would suggest the Canon imageFORMULA DR-6010C Office Document Scanner. It is around 2k, has great features, and very fast. We are happy with our purchase.

I hope this helps.

Hello all,

Our 9080c scanner has started adding some light pink stripes on the scans. Rollers have been replaced, etc, but we still have the stripes - not bad, but enough that OCR can get messy. Unfortunately, the vendor who supports us doesn't have training on the machine. He's thinking that he needs a service utility to do calibration on the machine, but he hasn't been able to find it. (He tried the recommended one from Canon - for the 7580, I believe.)

And of course, the semester started yesterday so we have several books needing to be scanned!

Anyone have any ideas? Of happen to have the calibration utility??
