Question about Canon DR-1210C Scanner
After scanning several pages, a vertical line (sometimes two) appears on the scanned documents. This line also prints. Lifting the feeder (as though to use the flatbed) will clear the problem for a few pages then the vertical line(s) reappear. Does this have something to do with static? This is not a cleaning issue as the documents are going through the feeder.
Clean the glass with IsoPropyl Alcohol. Dont use any other solvent. A speck of dust stuck to the glass can give a continuous line in the output
