Have you tried scanning a color image in using windows or something?
I think the problem may be with your scanner - the blue lines could indicate
that the bulb (actually, it's probably a tube) may have an uneven light
pattern, or the scan head may react differently to blue light along it's
If you rule out a software problem, by trying it in windows for example, you
will know for sure if it is hardware or software.
If the scanner is new, this should be a valid warranty claim, otherwise you
might be able to get it repaired, but I don't know - it will depend on the
scanner and who you may have available to fix it.
Definitely try it using different software to be sure first though.

i have a Highscreen - realscan from Vobis and it works pretty well in
S/W mode but when i want to scan colored images "color" it's stupid
because there are some vertical blue lines in the image. i have
included a jpg which shows a scan "black background" with the blue
lines in front.
what is working:
-S/W scan with 1-300 dpi
-i think all except the color scan mode
i use xscanimage
