Hello everyone -
Vertical lines are appearing down the middle of my scans. I have cleaned the glass thoroughly, as suggested, but these lines keep popping up. I can't afford to replace my scanner and am really hoping to find a DIY fix for the problem. Any ideas?

Lines in images from a scanner are most often related to a mechanical issue.
You can test your unit with another system. If the behavior continues, you'll have your answer. Canon scanners come with a 1 yr warranty.
As of this posting, both are available directly from Canon.

Thank you for responding to me.
As noted in my post, I can't afford to replace my scanner and am looking for ways that I may be able to fix it on my own. Ideally, I would like to know WHY it is making these awful lines.

PS: I am particularly irked by this scenario because I bought the scanner in June of 2020. It is not that old nor has it seen much action.
