My scanned image is distorted. What should I do?

    If a scanned image appears distorted or blurry, try these solutions:

    • Make sure your original is not wrinkled or warped. This may prevent the original from laying flat on the scanner glass.
    • Do not move your original or your product during scanning.
    • Your product will not operate properly while tilted at an angle. Place your product on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond its base in all directions.
    • Adjust these Epson Scan 2 settings (if available) and try scanning again:
      • Increase the Resolution setting.
      • If the Image Type setting is Black & White, adjust the Threshold setting.
      • Select the Unsharp Mask setting.
      • If the Image Type setting is Black & White, select Text Enhancement. If the Image Type setting is Color or Grayscale, change the Text Enhancement setting to High.
