My Canon Canoscan 4400F scanner has started to produce vertical (in the direction of scan) stripes. The stripes are just a slight discolouration. I've tried all the setting, especially resolution and I've tried updating the driver - all to no avail. Anyone advise on this one? I've had the scanner some time and use it extensively and it's been fine up to now.
Thanks for your response guys, and I really thought cleaning the heads would be the answer. I had the glass off before to clean the underside so it could have been that. In taking the scanner apart I found a series of mirrors, each one shorter than its previous one, until it reached a lens. I cleaned them all but to no avail. I still get the same set of lines. I've also done the calibration as you suggested. No luck. It looks like it has to be a new scanner. Not worth sending it to Canon I would think. Thanks for you help anyway
