Question about Umax Computers & Internet
The line will be due to a failure of a single element in the scan receiver head. The only fix is to replace it, not an especially difficult job but you'll probably find that obtaining a spare is near impossible and it will almost certainly cost more than to replace your venerable old scanner.
It's got to be around seven ears old now, so has far outlasted it's original design lifespan. Much as I hate to walk away from a repair, I think it's time to let this one rest in peace and buy another. Alternatively, ask or look on FreeCycle/Freegle (the latter is UK only) as there are regularly old but functional scanners/multi-function devices on offer simply due to folks upgrading their operating system and finding no drivers for their old scanner.
Sorry I cannot provide you with a realistic easy quick fix, but I hope that I've helped you to decide what to do next.
p.s. Don't throw the old unit away: you'll mayy get something for it if you put it on an auction site and describe it as "spares or repairs". Or you could offer it for free on FreeCycle/Freegle. Someone out there will be needing a spares donor (usually the lamp, transformer, or the glass flatbed)
