Clean the glass and the feed rollers
Most of the time when your document scanner stops functioning properly or the scans aren’t clear, it’s typically something that is simple to repair. We’ve found that a majority of minor problems such as lines appearing on the scan or the final scan being blurry can usually be fixed by cleaning the glass or replacing the feed rollers. Minor problems such as these are inexpensive and can be handled quickly. Cleaning the glass or replacing feed rollers tends to be the most common problem with smaller and less expensive document scanners.
