Epson ET 3760 ADF dark lines

Recently, my scanned image from ADF consistently has a few vertical dark lines. There are no dark lines if I scan from glass, or to make prints.

User manual suggests to clean ADF rollers. Don't think it matters since the position of the dark lines do not coincide with the rollers.

Anyone that has seen this before?

Foreign material such as dust, fragments of paper or some other "stuff" that's occluding that part of your scanner sensor. So, line up the scan with the original source docs and your scanner path and then carefully examine the optical sensor strip that your document passes over... Once you've figured out what's causing it you may be able to clean off the "stuff" or at least see if the problem is something internal that requires more involved maintenance to fix.

I really wish people would post their printer model. Different Epsons work differently.

Some ADF lines can be a spot on the glass. Most Epson ADFs usually work by parking the scanner head furthest to the left and pushing the paper past it. Sometimes it's just the furthest left part of the main glass. Sometimes it's a little open strip further to the left of the main glass. One little spot here can leave lines.

Some Epson ADFs have their own intrinsic scanners. This is the case for printers that have single-pass duplex scanning. You might need to open the ADF, most of them have a way to expose the secondary scanner strip.
