    I bought a used FI 5330C2 document scanner. I have installed VueScan to try it out. I have two problems.

    1. When documents are scanned they have a weird brown tinge to them.

    2. When scanning in duplex mode the scanner scans almost 90% then gets stuck.

    Edit I seemed to figure out how to fix number 2. All I had to do is turn Auto Eject to Scan.

    Glass is clean. Cleaned with with air, and a microfibre cloth with glass cleaner.

    Post a copy of a scanned document so that we can see what you're seeing.

    I second the suggestion from Fishrrman, but I also wanted to add: It's quite possible that color confusion is contributing to your woes. Devices, like the scanner you've connected, use color profiles to work around color differences between your screen and the device. Sometimes this goes awry - say, the device has the wrong profile assigned to it - and color casts are the result.

    Though it seems to do fine for black and white text. The first text was grayscale setting.

    Though yesterday it seemed to be fine.

    I was using Vuescan for the above scans.

    When viewing this page on my Xbox One there seems to be nothing wrong with the scanned images. Is there something off with my monitor profile m in Mac osx?

    From my monitor I took a picture of it.

    It looks like your Mac is indeed the problem. Fortunately, fixing this is easy. Go into System Preferences -> Displays -> Color tab. Look at the Profiles section. First try changing the profile to either "iMac" or "Generic". If that clears up the issue, then the root cause is likely color calibration being off.
