I get a red line down one side of the page when scanning using the adf on a HP 5590 scanner


My guess is the ADF has picked up some dirt. Check the path very carefully.

Every time I scan lines appears either on document or pictures. I tried cleaning the glass but nothing happens.


Clean the **** glass with alcohol. The **** glass is the little glass that paper is scanned over when using a automatic document feeder.

HP Scanjet 5590 Lamp Error "Bad or fading lamp (error -4430)" Fixable? Can I do it? Best source to purchase?


From HP forums:

The first thing I would do is to make sure your TMA is properly attached. Next, make sure your software is up to date and that any applicable patches have been applied.

Next, what OS are you using? What application are you trying to use to scan with? Can you scan from any other application such as word or another graphics program?

Blank Scan from HP Scanjet 5590 Flatbed Auto Feed


Scanning is possible in 'Text' mode and 'Picture' Mode. In text mode, which is simple 'Black & White", this can happen, particulalrly if the text is in color. Either you increase the contrast settings or scan the document in Grey/color and convert it to B&W using the software. By this you need not check if there is output!. ( I am assuming that otherwise the scanner is performing okay). File size in B&W is very small as compared to Grey/color.
