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.

Scans wrong size...only scan a portion or smaller "window" of document

Normally these scanner have a prescan window whcih shows the image that is being scanned. Only the selected area will be bright and the rest little shaded. You need to expand the selection, by dragging the line (dashes running along the border). Select default option in the software setting, if in doubt.

Fi 5120c will not scan sheets that have different color entries

Check the software settings in the scanning software. Try running scandisk in the OS. Check if the scanner is working with any other comp. If it works, may be your OS is corrupted.

Horizontal Banding

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.
