Scanner troubles

Postby Nobody » Mon Apr 10, 2006 11:35 am

Earlier today, I posted about my "Scanner troubles." Out of nowhere, my software couldn't connect to my scanner/printer/copier. After researching and trying a number of "fixes," I think either my drivers are very bad and need some magic to fix them, or my scanner/printer/copier is broken, or both.

The "broken" theory has some extra strength to it because the machine hasn't been printing yellow for about one month. Plus, the prints are a bit spotty. Replacing the ink and cleaning the heads wasn't fixing it.

I guess I need to buy a new scanner/printer/copier. I seem to have to buy one every year-and-a-half. >:/

So how'd I "scan" today's comic? I actually took a picture of the pencils with my digital camera, then did my normal tweaking and lettering to get the version currently live. After I get a replacement scanner, I'll properly scan it and replace the version you're seeing now (and hopefully that will get rid of some of the darker areas).

I bought a new scanner today. I scanned in the original art from episode 51 and replaced the old one. Thanks for the new scanner, things seem to be back to normal.
