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 !

he BC72XLT is a fairly basic scanner, and the manual contains just about everything that you should need to get it up and running. First, though, you need to make certain that you have a current list of frequencies that are active in your area. For a good frequency database, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit: www.RadioReference.com
To verify that the scanner is working properly, select and scan the WEATHER band. If you can receive the NOAA weather broadcasts in your area you should be able to pick up a lot of other frequencies as well.
This happens due to the failure of one of the "Detectors" inside the "Scan Head" They have a strip of these sensors all next too each other laid across the width of the scanner platen. Unfortunately there is not a lot to be done.
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.
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.
