Black band down right side of page when copy or fax


Most common cause for a band on copies or sent faxes is debris on the scanner glass. A cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol will usually work in cleaning the scan area. After cleaning the area, allow it to completely dry prior to testing the machine.

I get a thick vertical black line/margin down the entire page when i scan on my SX115


Please make sure the scanner flatbed is clean.
You can also try to copy and see if it happens on copying.
If it does, then your printer needs servicing.

When scanning or copying on my C4180 a thick black line appears on the right hand side of the page. This does not happen when printing.


clean the scanner glass... completely .. if you are scanning /copying from ADF .. then clean the adf rollers as well ..

You will be able to lift the ADF rollers and there will be a mat as well underneath the rollers.. clean them as well ..
the issue would be resolved.

There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.

If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.

A bar code stripe on the right side of the copy.


i'm not sure if you're talking about a solid black band or a bunch of little stripes running down page. does it happen when you run an internal report or only on copies? if its a black solid band, check and make sure the bluish colored tab on top of the drum is all the way to the left side. if its a group of fine lines, depending on whether it happens on internal reports or not, it could be the drum is going bad or you may have a bad scanner. write back with a little more info if this suggestion doesn't work.

good luck,

Thick black line through page when copying or scanning


Sounds like part of your scanner is not functioning and reading black all the time. Probably best to return it for a replacement.
