Hmmm, maybe scanners have improved since this thread was begun. I scanned a sheet of white paper on several settings and just got a completely white sheet of paper. Sweet.

Try loading the result into Photoshop and use the Equalize command. I think you may be surprised at the results.

If you are still getting a completely blank document, make sure you don't have the scanner set to scan with a transparency adapter. *Any* scanner will have varying results across its scan area.

hope this helps!
