If the lines are vertical, the glass may need cleaned, or the unit itself may need a good cleaning. Horizontal lines usually mean the machine itself needs a good cleaning as the scanning apparatus is not moving smoothly.

PLEASE SEE THE COMMENTS ON INSTRUCTIONS TO REINSTALL
Might as well try to power cycle the device meaning disconnect it from the computer , turn off the scanner , unplugged the adapter from the power source and then push on the power button for 5sec so that excess power will be drain and then restart the computer also as soon as your computer boots up connect the scanner .
in your printer menu there should be a option for cleaning the printer heads. if not you need to remove the cartrages and clean yourself with rubbing alcohol. also clean off the cartrages also.this should get rid of the saturation problem.let me know if this helped.
Have you tried to do a cleaning of the color heads. Use a cotton swab, the same kind you use to clean your ears with rubbing alchy on it an clean the heads of the color injectors. If this dose not correct the problem then try changing out cartrages. IE if it is a grey stripe change out your black ink. If it is a pink stripe change out the color ink.
This is not the only solution, but this might help.
Put a blank page in as the first page and see if all of your documents scan completely.
You may need to clean the ADF. Try the following:
Cleaning the Automatic Document Feeder You may need to clean the ADF feed mechanism if your documents do not feed easily into the ADF, or several feed in at the same time. To clean the ADF: 1. Dampen a soft cloth with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol (95%). 2. Press the ADF cover release on the top left of the scanner body to open the Automatic Document Feeder cover. 3. Wipe the feed roller from side to side. Rotate the roller to clean its entire surface. 4. Wipe the pad from top to bottom. Be careful not to snag the cloth on the springs on either side of the pad. 5. Close the cover when you’re finished. NOTE: Please be careful when cleaning the roller. The roller is designed to rotate in one direction only. As you’re cleaning the roller, make sure it rotates easily, and continue rotating it in that direction while wiping it clean. Do NOT force the roller to rotate in the opposite direction. Forcing the roller to rotate will damage it, and may cause the scanner to feed pages incorrectly.
Please let me know if this has helped and thank you. Binary Bob
