It appears to be a freak problem. The best way is to bring it to original condition. Try uninstalling the scanner, run Scandisk on the Comp, Switch off and reinstall the driver. this may work.
From the Microtek KB:
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.
This link should have user manual etc.
but unfortunately the site is down at the moment - try again later.
on the singapore (east asia) site
nothing obvious based on your problem, but at least it means they still acknowledge the product and that they have to support it. maybe you can spot something yourself as well.
If no luck with the US website then go to microtek.com and complain to any of the other sites. Their customer service should help.
If no joy from this please post again, someone might know the software.
Hope this helps :)
