Question about Canon CanoScan 8600F Flatbed Scanner
When i scan any film [at 600 dpi or more] many times the images are coming in with a thin line through them horizontally - sometimes the line is green but most times it looks like maybe the pixels arent interlaced [not sure how to describe it technically] or maybe some are missing? on higher res scans the problem is more prevalent. its hard to ignore and also quite agrivating because its a new machine. anyone had a similar problem? im scanning in with manual settings but i havent fully dove into the instruction manual. id appreciate any help!

This could be one faulty sensor pixel or a speck of dirt on the scanner bar. It might be worth opening the scanner and carefully dusting the bar with a camera cleaner aerosol.

If the 'noise' is in the same place with varying intensity it is definitely dirt on the glass. Clean with Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing Alcohol). Dont use any solvent.
