Question about Epson Expression 1680 Professional Flatbed Scanner
My scanning was normal, then suddenly a wide vertical blue line appears under the image. As well the image gets centered on the preview, rather than being in the corner as it is on the flatbed. Don't know how to fix this. I'm sure I've done something unknowingly! It is Epson Perfection V350 Photo.

If the lines are in the same location for all scanned outputs, it is clearly dust on the scanner glass. Clean it thoroughly.

There are two lamps with this model. One in the base for reflective and one in the lid for negatives and slides. If the base one is going out then it will be trying to use the one in the lid. You must remove the white document mat from underneath the lid to expose this lamp so it can scan your negatives.

Disconnect and remove the lid. Remove the two screws on the back of the base. Then use a screwdriver or flat blade to slightly open the back seam. Beginning at the back, run a blade up inside the upper part of the side seam. You will need to release three catches on each side. Once the sides are loose, raise the back of the top, while pushing forward, and the two snap catches at the front will release. The top then lifts off and you can clean the glass. Reassemble in reverse order.
