No lines when copying or scanning from flatbed.  How to clean the feeder scanner?

Lift the ADF scanner and check the small slit of glass on the left side of the top. Keep in mind that even nearly invisible bits if adhesive from a sticky note can cause image problems. The easiest way to find the offending contamination is to make a copy and then set the copy with the defect on the glass and the line will point to the problem. Be careful on these models as there is a mylar strip that can catch dirt, but do not ever remove it as it is not available as a replacement part.
