Re: Copy and scan
Have you tried cleaning the glass and going over to the settigs on the printer itself? YOu can use a damp cloth to clean the glass and wipex solution, but if all fails then there is something wrong with the bulb itself already. If you have a warranty for it you can call epson for replacement. if you dont have the warranty anymore then have it service or call them as well and ask for a loyalty site where you can purchase a new one for a discounted price. US only though

The line issue is caused by something on the image sensor. To get to it and clean it just pull the front up where you put the paper into it to scan. Inside you will find a glass strip, this is the image sensor. Use a paper towel dampened with window cleaner and gently scrubbing the glass strip, After cleaning the strip let it dry for a minute or teo before you close the cover and try a scan. It should be clear and should copy great again.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
You need to clean the scanner glass. Also known as the strip glass. It is a 1 inch wide strip of glass that runs from the front to the back. Your documents pass over this glass when they are scanned. Some of the wax crayon probably smeared off onto the glass and now when you scan the scanner sees these marks as stationary and thus records them as solid lines. Just look into the scanner section where your documents are fed in or depending on model, some are just to the left of the large original glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.
Notice where the metal retainer beneath the glass cuts off the view of your document you wish to copy and make allowances on your copy. Most printers disallow some portion of the edges of any document for handling the transport of the document through the feeder, or in the cases of contact copiers, a portion of the sheet as you have experienced, so that the edges need not be so carefully adjusted to avoid the dark line in edge copied formats.
Format all documents so that you do not need to copy the portion excluded.
Sometimes this can be accomplished by reducing the size of the document.
Sounds like the issue is with the scanner bulb. May not be moving across or warming up to full capacity.
Make sure the scanner is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. If problem is still there and you are in warranty you will need to replace the unit. If OOW then you should call and see if you can repair or upgrade the unit at a discounted price. If you want to speak to someone in English tell them you want mac support - they are in Canada.
This has something to do the brightness chosen. In the manual mode, if you choose a dark output, the output will have tis area also; if you choose, lighter output, it will omit. In the auto scan mode, the scanner decides what is the best output.
If the problem only occurs when using the document feeder, the problem is not usually caused by the drum. When using the document feeder, try to notice where the scanner (the light assembly under your scan glass)stops just before the paper is being fed. Some multifunction machines have a small piece of glass that is separate from the large scan glass and the scanner assembly stays parked underneith it as the original is being fed over it. Most likely there is something on the glass where the scanner parks as originals are being fed thru the feeder. When putting your original on the large scan glass to copy, the mark on the glass will only show as a spot, but will show as a vertical line thru the whole copy when using the feeder.
