discoloured edges on scans

Postby postle » Wed Jan 11, 2006 7:35 pm

Hi, I'm a big fan of Silverfast and have found it to be the best scanning software I have ever used, espacially on the umax powerlook III. My problem, I guess, is in the hardware, but I'm not sure, so I'm open to suggestions and advice. I'm using a G4 OSX and Silverfasr SE, and have ensured the calibration area and the internal mirrirs are as clean as can be BUT when I scan or pre scan the edges of my scan are discoloured, usually a pale green. THe centre of the image is perfect. The scanner has a realtively new lamp and is situated in a alcove away from direct sunlight. Is this a hardware problem ... I guess so, but confirmation would be cheaper than a wasted call out fee from the Engineer!


All the best Paul

One thing you might do to reduce the variables is to scan with another program to see if the same thing happens.
