I get a red line down one side of the page when scanning using the adf on a HP 5590 scanner

My guess is the ADF has picked up some dirt. Check the path very carefully.

1- reinstall drivers

2- Use the WIA driver for Windows OpSys

3- Pay close attention to options in dialog box. Select ADF or Document Feeder as an option

4- Depending on the OCR application [personally I prefer PaperPort] the imaging process can be very eaasy or somewhat difficult
