    Having the same issue. Strange streaks of color appear across the page. The bed itself is spotless and I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and software numerous times. Spoke with Epson and they suggested I go to a service center for repairs. Hassle.

    When scanning photos, I get stripes of color, red, yellow and green the length of the scan. These streaks are not on the original photos. The bed is clean. This scanner is less than a year old and has been used very little.

    I am on XP Home.

    I used an HP flatbed for over 5 years but had to purchase a new one because the HP was not compatible with XP. I chose this Epson flatbed scanner and at this point I am very disenchanted with this product!

    Thank you for any help you can give me!!!!!

    I have the epson v100 and have had the same problems. I had the epson v1610 and got about 3000 scans out of it before it died. This scanner I only got less than 100 scans before having the same bars running down the scan. The problem did go away on its own for two weeks. Then started again. Spent hours with tech support. They are useless. Never buying an epson again.

I just had my CCD replaced before my warranty expired in Feb and it worked fine for a week. Now i'm getting a cyan line down all my negative scans. And since you can only scan negatives in one spot, I can't even use a diff part of the scanning surface to avoid this. Sounds like a downright cheap part and definitely can't do the job. Never buying an Epson again, esp since they closed down the repair center nearby.

Red and yellow streaks appear in scans, always in the same location. The scanner was cleaned but the repair person could not find any problem with the equipment. Yet the streaks persist. How do I resolve...

execute a calibration to correct the wrong color:
  1. place your photo on the scanner, with a distance of 0.25 inch from the edge of the glass
  2. open Epson scan and select Professionnal Mode
  3. select the document source
  4. select the image type
  5. uncheck thumbnail then click Prevew
  6. crop the area of the image
  7. Click zoom to fine tune the area you see the streaks
  8. select the resolution of 72 dpi
  9. scan your photo

if the problem still not solved, you need to change the scanner unit , there are many dead pixels.

I620 scanner

Is the scanner scanning normally otherwise? Try scanning a printed matter with white background and if it is okay, then the streaking may be because of excess brightness chosen. Check if the paper movement is at constant speed. If it is smooth paper, it may slip and the same area may scanned again, appearing like a streak.

Green & Purple blurry images

In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.
Here's a link to some information regarding these problems.

Player, could you be more specific on the symptoms. Does the image also look blurry on the LCD. Any weird colors? And please reconfirm that you have a Canon SD200 (SD Card) and not an S200 (Compact Flash Card).
