You are not alone in getting these results with a 2200C - 

scanimage -L reports:
device `plustek:libusb:002:003' is a Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 2200c
flatbed scanner

sane-find-scanner reports:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [Hewlett-Packard], product=0x0605 [HP
ScanJet 2200C], chip=LM9832/3) at libusb:002:003

and I have similar results - Sometimes the scanned image is tinted on
the right and left edges (I believe it was to pink and yellow, if I
remember correctly) - and sometimes I am affected by stripes too.

However - every now and then, I get a very nice scan.

I just email to let you know you are not alone with the results you
get, but unfortunately I don't have a solution... 

best regards
