I know this posting is old, so will not help the person who originally asked this question, but recently (January 2015) I have had the same problem of lines showing on scanned images and have been looking for a solution. I tried cleaning the glass (many times) and this made no difference. After reading several blogs recommending technical solutions that went over my head I began to think that I would have to buy a new scanner as mine is now quite old and it would not be worth paying for it to be repaired. However, I have now fixed the problem myself and it was very simple. Hope this works for other people with the same problem. I turned off the computer and pulled the mains lead and the USB lead out of the back of the scanner and left it for a while (like you would with other devices such as freeview box, and internet modems etc, when they are not working properly) - and this worked! Scanner is good as new now. Good luck.
