Quoted text here. Click to load it, are you scanning a book and can't close the scanner cover all
the way?  Try putting a black blanket over the scanner when you scan,
that might solve the problem.  If not and the bad part always appears
in the same spot it's likely hardware, but you might want to test it
out on another machine first just to make sure (there's a very remote
possibility that it could be a driver/software issue).

Hatter Quotes
"I'm not a professional, I'm an artist."

"The more I learn the more I'm killing my idols."

"Is it wrong to incur and then use the hate ridden, vengeful stupidity
of complete strangers in random Usenet froups to further my art?"

"Freedom is only a concept, like race it's merely a social construct
that doesn't really exist outside of your ability to convince others
of its relevancy."

"Next time slow up a lil, then maybe you won't jump the gun and start
creamin yer panties before it's time to pop the champagne proper."

"Reality is directly proportionate to how creative you are."

"People are pretty fucking high on themselves if they think that
they're just born with a soul. *snicker*...yeah, like they're just
givin em out for free."

"Quible, quible said the Hare. Quite a lot of quibling...everywhere.
So the Hare took a long stare and decided at best, to leave the rest,
to their merry little mess."

"There's a difference between 'bad' and 'so earth shatteringly
horrible it makes the angels scream in terror as they violently rip
their heads off, their blood spraying into the faces of a thousand
sweet innocent horrified children, who will forever have the terrible
images burned into their tiny little minds'."

"How sad that you're such a poor judge of style that you can't even
properly gauge the artistic worth of your own efforts."

"Those who record history are those who control history."

"Is my .sig delimiter broken?  Really?  You're sure?  Awww,
gee...that's too bad...for YOU!"    `, )

By taking a large background sampling of pixels and heavily
applying an average (or blurring) filter it's possible to
approach an average lightness value to compare with other
areas of the document to determine if there was a sensed
(hardware) lightness difference.

Might just be a CCFL tube in the scanner is nearing end of
life and is darker at one end.
