Common problems HP Solution Center not working : Adobe Flash Player Error and Unable to scan
We would like to share some of the most frequently asked questions about HP Solution Center not working : Adobe Flash Player Error and Unable to Scan.
HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This has been a long-term issue with HP scanners (going back 25+ years). I’m considering a new HP printer, and would like to know if the scanning issue has been resolved. To recap, a substantial amount of white is added to scans of old color lithographs at certain resolutions. I’ve had many different HP scanners and printers through the years, and most seemed to have this issue; however, I didn’t always use each one on color lithograph images, so I can’t say they all suffered from this issue. By color lithographs, old trading   
cards are often the document being scanned.

 

For example, some old 1910-era tobacco trading cards were scanned, and the 1200 dpi color resolution added a LOT of white to the scans. These are small trading cards, about 2.00 by 2.63 inches in size. Please don’t ask me what printer I have as that’s moot (that is, I don’t want a new machine thrown at me to make the issue go away as is typical HP SOP).

 

Please, I just want to know: does newer HP scanning equipment still suffer from this well-known “added-white issue” when color lithographs are scanned, like old baseball cards from 100 years ago?

 

A simple answer is requested, e.g., HP scanners no longer have the issue, or HP has struck out with a solution. Thank you in advance for simply helping me as requested.
