Canon 3200F - even on auto flickers platen/film lights repeatedly on/off pre scanning

Post by Dorothy Br » Tue, 16 Nov 2004 08:09:23


Ever since I bought my CanoScan 3200F I've noticed before every
scan the unit auto-flickers the platen/film lights repeatedly on/off.
That is even if I manually select platen scanning, not auto or film.

Whilst the scanner is superbly fast (and works well under XP Pro)
this flickering before ever scan adds up to a lot of time wasted when
scanning 40-100 items at a time.

Q: Has anyone found a workaround, or "do they all do that"?

I can't see any later drivers on the Canon website.
A case of lpi m/sec being only part of the story, since it adds quite
a lot to the actual scanning time when doing lots of small scans.

Thanks.

2. Favorite Add on's/Add in's for FrontPage 2002

I will admit I haven't upgraded to FP2003 although the more I read the more
I am tempted. Anyway, if your using FP2002 what are your favorite
addon/addins? With a download/where to buy link if possible.

Thanks,
Tom
