Did you get them when feeding the paper through a Document Feeder on top of the scanner or did you get them when laying the document on glass and doing a bed scan?

If it was through a document feeder then you need to clean the rectangular sliver of glass above the main bed of glass. The scanner runs the document over this area and if it has a spot of dirt, it will show up as a line in your scan.

If you are getting it doing bed scan then you will need to get the corona cleaned which requires you to send it in to a shop.
