Question about Canon CanoScan 9950F Flatbed Scanner
My Canoscan 9950F scanner has suddenly started including a thin pale red line on the left side of my image, from top to bottom. Can anyone tell me what this line is doing there, where it came from and how to make it go away?
Try running a calibration. This is done thorugh ScanGear in Advanced mode. Once in Advanced Mode, in the Image Settings section there should be an option for Calibration (you may have to scroll down in this section to see it). After running the calibration, try performing a preview scan with nothing on the scanner glass. If the red line shows up on the preview now, then most likely the scanner needs to be serviced.

Verify whether or not you are getting this red line when doing a Flatbed scan or only when you are doing simplex or duplex scan, where the paper is pulled through to for the scan. If only when the paper is pulled through, check to ensure there are nor spots on the portion of the glass where the light the the scan hits the page, any spots (ink, dust, hair) will register as a line as the page is pulled through for the scan. Then take some alcohol based solution and clean or dust the area.
