Can you see what the default settings are for auto scan? Such as what resolution (72, 150, 300...), what mode (line art, color photo...), compression settings and so on?

Did you use the Digital Ice option and if so what did you set the Grain Reduction level to?

Also you might want to try scanning in manual mode to see if there is a difference.

I did some research on Epson's site:

EPSON Scan provides three modes for you to make any scanning settings: Full Auto Mode, Home Mode, and Professional Mode. For most documents they recommend using the Home Mode or the Professional Mode.

Quote:
Full Auto Mode:
The Full Auto Mode makes scanning simple, freeing you from complex settings or adjustments.

Home Mode:
The Home Mode enables you to adjust the basic image settings for scanned images.

Professional Mode:
In the Professional Mode, there are many options available to give you greater control over your scanning. You can sharpen, correct or enhance your images before scanning them in the Professional Mode.
Here are two links that should help:
