Scanned images include darker strips

Hi, lately my PE16 scanned images include darker strips, as if the scanner-head lighting has segments of alternating luminosity. The picture is otherwise OK. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I tried cleaning the glass (both sides), the light-source mirror, even the light-source... Still stripes.
    I attached a scan of a uniform-color cardboard, the stripes are apparent.
    Perhaps the CCD is bad?

Document is scanning upside down

Easiest way to confront this problem is to rotate the material being scanned.
If you find the image of the item is being inverted then simply rotate the material being scanned by 180 degrees.
Additionally most scanning software will have a ROTATE function where you can rotate the image of the scanned material, usually in 90 degree increments which can be useful for editing purposes. You may find this function under Edit or Image in your scanning software.
Good luck! William

Faulty scanned images

Pls check your color Scan settings. Generally there will be some color difference between the original and scanned Image because, the original is 'reflected light' whereas, the scanned image is a 'source light' on the monitor. The monitor setting can also affect the color output. S. Mohan

Stripline on my scanned images from Minolta 5400 II film scanner

If some particles of dust stick to the scanning module, then while scanning they appear like lines. Clean the scan module thoroughly using Isopropyl alcohol IPA-Industrial grade is enough, dont use any solvent. You can use your aftershave (!) once or twice. Ensure that the film strips are not sticky.

Streaks in image scanned by Canon DR-2580C Path-Through

The staples cannot reach the sensors. They could have scratched the glass above the sensors. Clean the glass with IsoPropyl alcohol. Try scanning a few images to find if the scratch marks are on the same place on all images. Once confirmed that the glass is scratched, you can change the glass. You need a technical expertise to change or call service staff.
