Yellow streak through color image scan

When I scan color, it doesn't matter where I position the item to scan, I get a yellow streak through the scan. The streak is so bad that I can even adjust or tone it out of my photo. The scanner is an Epson Perfection 3490 Photo scanner, only 2 years old. It used to work great. Can you tell me what is wrong and how to approach fixing it? Thanks so much.

    Hi there, I also have a colour scanner that is suddenly doing the same, but the yellow colour is getting darker and darker. Before I could crop it out but the area is also increasing.

    We are having the same probem, with our canon canoscan 8400f.

    When we scan any coloured images they come out all yellow. Black and white is fine but colour is useless!

    Any ideas how to fix this problem?

    I have an HP All-in-one sheet-feeder scanner that leaves dark yellow streaks through every color scan. B&W scans are fine.

Red and yellow streaks appear in scans, always in the same location. The scanner was cleaned but the repair person could not find any problem with the equipment. Yet the streaks persist. How do I resolve...


execute a calibration to correct the wrong color:
  1. place your photo on the scanner, with a distance of 0.25 inch from the edge of the glass
  2. open Epson scan and select Professionnal Mode
  3. select the document source
  4. select the image type
  5. uncheck thumbnail then click Prevew
  6. crop the area of the image
  7. Click zoom to fine tune the area you see the streaks
  8. select the resolution of 72 dpi
  9. scan your photo

if the problem still not solved, you need to change the scanner unit , there are many dead pixels.

Faulty scanned images


Pls check your color Scan settings. Generally there will be some color difference between the original and scanned Image because, the original is 'reflected light' whereas, the scanned image is a 'source light' on the monitor. The monitor setting can also affect the color output. S. Mohan

I620 scanner


Is the scanner scanning normally otherwise? Try scanning a printed matter with white background and if it is okay, then the streaking may be because of excess brightness chosen. Check if the paper movement is at constant speed. If it is smooth paper, it may slip and the same area may scanned again, appearing like a streak.
