Just started using new scanner, and find a just-noticeable vertical band of a darker hue in the left 1/3rd (portrait) of the frame, and a narrower band just to the right of center. This "banding" appears as a greenish-beige haziness which then also appears in the printed scan.
Has anyone else encountered such a problem? This is occuring on film from any roll, shot in any camera, processed at different labs (it is not in the film). Also the problem becomes more noticeable if I increase saturation level. I'll attach a sample image. Any ideas? Thanks

best, andy
