Question about HP Scanjet 8250 Flatbed Scanner
After scanning a vertical blue line appears on the copy. Please let me know how to fix this problem.
I was told by one of you that the reason was bad drivers and to remove the software and reinstall it again. Bad advise. The blue line is a sign of dust. We cleaned the unit and the blue line dissapeared. I wasted $15.99 for bad service.
