Actually i have fixed the problem since then all i had to do is take apart the scanner and windex the inside and outside of the glass. this scanner is old and the light inside always stays on probably why it made the blue streaks. thanks for your help :)

This is going to seem dumb
If the streaks are in the direction of the lens travel
vaccum the thing out
If there is a dust crumb on the lens, it will show as a line, streak

Hp 5400c scans blue images


sounds like a faulty scanning head to me......
when images are scanned they are normally imaged in 3 colours red blue and green these are then combined to give a full colour scan. sounds like you are only getting the blue pass.

not alot that can be done here, if it is in warranty (check with manufacturer for duration of warranty as sometimes this can be more than a year) they should repair or replace this for you

Scanning barcodes with colored background


unfortunately it appears that you do not have sufficient Contrast for your barcodes, this will make scanning them difficult, that with the added issues of wear & fading makes the use of barcoded passcards difficult. it's probably better to use RFID or Magstripe cards for this application
