Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Scanned images have lines through them


If the lines are vertical, the glass may need cleaned, or the unit itself may need a good cleaning. Horizontal lines usually mean the machine itself needs a good cleaning as the scanning apparatus is not moving smoothly.

When I scan a photo, my Brookstone IConvert photo scanner has white lines all over the pictures.


The reason it has white lines is because the glass is dirty in the inside. If it has one speck of anything inside the scanner it turns into a line because it stays in that one place as the picture slides over it. So that line is actually a dot that is covering the picture throughout the scan. The solutions don't work. I don't suggest taking yours apart. I took mine apart and cleaned the glass. The pictures scanned fine and then the lines show up again. The real solution is to get your money back if you can. It will do this over and over. It's a design flaw in the scanner. The picture is actually squeezed as it it scanned. As pictures are squeezed against the glass... residue builds no matter how clean your pictures are.

When I scan 4x6 photos there is a line (sometimes green) across the entire photo that used to not be there. Scanning larger 8x11 photos the line does not show or when scanning documents. Help! I'm in...


If line is vertical.

Try scanning a bigger document. Use a blank page big as the scan capacity and scan the blank page.

If for example you are using an a3 scanner, scan a blank A3 page.

When scanning blank page set resolution to an high value, so that you does not lose pixels.

Check scan result, and explore the whole document using zoom to see if the line is still present on the test scan of the blank page.

If there is still the line, then it is either a scanner dirty, probably inside glass, or a dafective sensor on CCD sensor array.

If there is no line, then the problem is usually depending on the software.

In that case uninstall the software and install it again.

If that is not enough to fix the problem, try uninstalling software, doing a system restore to a date before the problem started , and then installing software again.

If the line is horizontal , that is usually a loss of power on the high voltage to lamp.
Try reinstalling software first, if that does not fix the problem , and line is horizontal, then it is fault mentioned above.
Horizontal lines at the end of a document may also be caused by faulty scanner control board, or scanner going out of memory.

Horizontal Banding


From the Microtek KB: www.microtek.com Scans that produce lines, fading, and discoloration generally result from a corrupt scanner driver installation or a burned out lamp. To determine if your problem is caused by a burned out lamp, simply open the scanner lid and check the color of the lamp. If the color is a shade of red, pink, or green, then the lamp is burned out. Perform a scanner preview to get a clear view of the lamp. If the lamp is a bright white and the problem still exists, please contact technical support.
