I have used  scythe to trim adapters and am now using sickle to quality trim. 1 out if 20 files has come with the error below (19/20 seem to be fine). Can anyone suggest why this is happening and how I can solve this issue?

The quality string given is only 75 bp long,  but the error is put at position 76. There seems to be something wrong with that specific record - maybe the file is corrupted... You should have a look at the record in question.
