Default Slides (some prints) appear darker or blurry when scanned.

I am using an HP Scanjet 3570c and associated software to scan and post slides and prints. Often they appear darker when scanned than they really are when seen as prints or slides with projector. Another problem I've been having is that they will have soft focus or be downright blurry. I have had many rejected for this reason lately. The slides and prints themselves are in good focus and generally the lighting is good or decent. Some shadows tend to be a little darker on the Kodachome 64 slides due to the nature of that film. When I try to correct the brightness or focus I get scan lines and a generally bad quality scan. What might be causing these problems. Is there a way to fix them? Any Suggestions? Thanks in advance!
