I have a lot of purple lines running through scans
I can't use certain sections of the scanner because the lines run right through the scan. It's really bad on the top section of the scanner. I have these large documents I need to scan and just can't get it done. The scanner is about 8 years old, is it fixable or correctable, or time for a new one?

Don't waste your scanner ! ;-)
First question: Is the glass platen inside clean?
I think you should urgently do a color adjustment. By 8 years using the lamp become darker and the light spectrum change in some wave lenghts the intensity. If you are using silverfast you should use a silverfast calibration target. Good luck !

I've had a similar problem with the streaks, lines and color bleeds appearing in the scan. Try uninstalling the all software and drivers for the scanner and reinstall. Worked for me. Have had to do this a couple of times since I've owned the scanner... about three to four years now.
I lost the CD of the hp jst scanner 6200c, but i down loaded the program on line. However, when I scan nothing appears on the screen and the scanner makes a lot of noise. The light does go on on the scanner but it doesnt scan i get a blank
could be the component scanner inside of the minolta , it will need to be tested to determine if the scanners components or a wire strip is causing the problem or the component scanner its self , it sounds like a section of it is out so it will not see anything ------ ---------- in that section
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.
