    I was donated a MINT Canon 9000F Mk II Flatbed Scanner a couple of years ago to replace my Busted Epson 1650 -- it was lovely ! Great for Medium Format as I n ow have a Plustek OptickFilm 7200 for 35mm so use that as I didn't want to 'wear lout' the Canon --- suddenly it has a 'blue area ;' down one side and 'scan lines' appeared, spoiling my Club Competition and Forum Photos . I have tried cleaning the glass and wiped the glass of the strip light -- nothing works HELP PLEASE !!

    never saw this issue, but looks like you may not be alone...

    Indicates that others had issues, and that unplugging everything and toggling the lock switch a dozen times could somehow fix it. I am skeptical but i guess its worth a try.
    https://www.fullypsyched.com/calibrate-canoscan-scanner-remove-lines/ makes me think there may be a calibration option for your scanner that could also possibly resolve it, that link is not specific to your scanner but may be worth looking into as well.

    These are a few starter thoughts at least.

    YO !!! I tried suggestions such as 'Toggle Lock Switch' then in Vuescan under 'Scanner' clicked on 'Calibrate' and at first the 'warm Up Lamp' went to 100% but NO PREVIEW so I switched everything OFF and ON again and clicked on 'scan' and suddenly scanner creaked into ACTION and NO MORE SCAN LINES ! So RELIEVED !
