Scan artifacts generated in scanned photos...

Hello all Gurus- I'm wondering if anyone can shed some insights as to why I get fine lines (both horizontal and vert) that get "scanned" in along with my photos. Any insights would be appreciated!

2010 Jeep Liberty, operated fine yesterday, this morning 4 degrees outside, no start-dash light says "no fuse"

the fuse is bad, the PCM sees that.
check fuses
or learn to scan PCM
the PCM can be scanned with any scan tool made (newer)
the scan will tell you which fuse it is.
or check all fuses. (test them)
or its loose.
or has hair line cracks inside.
scan it.
end the wonderments.

HP ScanJet 4670 - yellow lines or streaks in scans

You have a dirty glass. Take a lint free cloth and water and wipe the glass making sure you leave no streaks behind. Sometimes you have to take a flashlight and examine the glass. Just a little spec, the laser will drag all the way down.

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.

The printer is printing a line down one side of every page it prints

Are you printing a scan or a fax?

If so, you may want to scan the file as a ".PDF" file. This vertical line is sometimes an artifact of receiving a fax.

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.
