  • My HP ScanJet 3400C gives vertical lines of a lighter color in the scans.
    I have tried the patches backend-20050128_1.tar.gz and backend-20060204.tar.gz.
    The vertical lines appear in scans made with testtool scanimage, xscanimage and xsane under SuSE 9.0, kernel version 2.4.21-238-default, gcc version 3.3.1.
    Under Windows the scans are file (no vertical lines).
    I suspect it is a calibration problem of the CCD array.

    Is this a known problem and does anybody know a solution.

    Thanks, Jan Pieterse.

     
    • I would like to confirm these lines still exists as of this posting.  I hope someone can give a solution for this.

      I am using version 1.0.18 on PCLinuxOS.
