Unhappy Canon 650U XSane Greenish Image

I have Red Hat Linux 9 running on my intel pentium 2.8 GHz desktop. The installation of xsane and sane backends are installed as part of red hat distribution.

When I plugged in my scanner and scanned with it, the image is greenish. I know the Canon N650U uses green light to scan but this is too much for an image to be green too! This is a USB scanner anyway.

By the way, I can preview and scan properly. The only problem is the greenish image.

Please help. Thank you in advance....

I have a simliar problem with my scanner as well. I am using a canon N340P (serial) on Mandrake 10.0 Official. I can scan items perfectly but they are all in red. I tried my scanner in windows and it scans the colors correctly. Oddly enough on Mandrake it has no problem scanning in greyscale. But when I scan in full color ot turns out all red. Is there a way to solve this? Maybe some sort of calibration cammand for the scanner?

Same troubles with scanned image

I use SuSE9.0 Personal with SANE and xscanimage and I'm having the same color-problems: the whole image is way to red, I'm trying now to adjust the gamma manually, but I think this is not the way to solve this.

Advice would be very appreciated!!

Thx a bunch already
