Are you sure that the MD9850 is a 600CP clone? 
AFAIK, it is a 1200CP clone. The problem you describe is exactly what
I would expect when you use the 600CP driver on a 1200CP.
Try setting the driver to "cis1200", but be careful.

Halfway down the page? I would expect this when the scan head hits the 
bottom. Does it also happen with the cis1200 setting?
