Selected FAQ

Q:
The scanned colors differ from the original colors. What should I do?
A:
Try the following:
  • Make sure the Image Type setting is correct. See Scanning in Office Mode, Scanning in Home Mode, or Scanning in Professional Mode.


  • Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and change the Display Gamma setting to match your output device, such as a monitor or printer, in the Color menu.


  • Adjust the Auto Exposure setting in Professional Mode. Also try selecting a different Tone Correction setting. See Adjusting the Color and Other Image Settings.


  • Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and select Color Control and Continuous auto exposure in the Color menu.


  • Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and click Recommended Value to return the Auto Exposure setting to the default.


  • Click Configuration, select the Preview tab, and turn off the Fast Preview setting in the Preview menu.


  • Make sure to enable the Embed ICC Profile setting. In the File Save Settings window, select JPEG or TIFF as the Type setting. Click Options, then select the Embed ICC Profile check box. To access the File Save Settings window, see Selecting File Save Settings.


  • Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and software. Some computers can change the palette of colors on your screen.


  • Windows: Use the color management system for your computer, ICM. Add a color profile that matches your monitor to improve on-screen color matching. Exact color matching is very difficult. Check your software and monitor documentation for information on color matching and calibration.


  • Mac OS X: Use the color management system for your computer, ColorSync. Exact color matching is very difficult. Check your software and monitor documentation for information on color matching and calibration.


  • Printed colors can never exactly match the colors on your monitor because printers and monitors use different color systems. Monitors use RGB (red, green, and blue) and printers typically use CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black).
