imageCLASS MF453dw White Border on Scanned Image


I recently purchased a Canon imageCLASS MF453dw multi-function printer and scanner. I've noticed that when scanning from the platen glass input source a several pixel wide white border is present in the scanned image, even though the object I'm scanning is all the way in the corner on the scanning bed. The attached scan of the user manual for the printer illustrates this. The white border can be seen at the top and left of the scanned image.

Can this border be disabled? Is my printer defective or is this how all of them scan? Thanks for everyone's help and input!

  1. What version of the Mac or Windows operating system are you using on your computer?

I'm using Windows 10 and I'm scanning from the MF Scan Utility software

Hello Gtg362i,

When scanning from the MF scan utility, you can adjust the size of the paper size so the document is the only item that is scanned. 

  1. Click on settings in the lower right of the scan utility.
  2. On the left, select the scan button that you would like to adjust the scan setting for.
  3. On the right, you can click on the paper size drop down and select the paper size for your document or select custom to enter the paper size.

No matter what custom size I use I still get a white border on the top and the left side of the scan.
