You need to go farther than the lens glass. The dust is actually on the photo board itself. I'm assuming that the problem is on the bottom scanning side. You will need to dis assemble the scanner to remove the scanning unit. This can be done by remove the back, the sides, and the two front pieces. Once inside remove the silver metal cover over the rollers. This will help you get the actually scanning equipment out. Remove the black scanning unit behind the silver metal cover.

Make sure to ground yourself before continuing or you could short the boards.
Under the lens glass there are three boards. Two are visible. One is white, long and skinny. On the backside one is green. The one you need to get to is hidden between the black piece, and silver metal piece. There should be 6 screws that you will need to remove first.
Very gently pry the plastic from the metal. The problem that you are looking for is there.
Wipe the photo cells with an alcohol swab, and you should be good to go.

Is the scanner light failing?


You're probably right.

If it's four years old, would a replacement be more or less than you'd expect to pay for the repair?

Your problem could be a simple as a blot or spot stuck on the scanner, carefully clean the scanner glass and particularly the small bar itself with a disposable alcohol swab, you may be surprised what kind of gunk you remove and it may well solve your problem.

Black vertical lines on copies and scans from auto


This means the read area is dirty. Clean the glass with glass or lens cleaner at the area where you place the head of the paper if you wanted to lift the cover and scan a page without the autofeeder. There may be white out or toner stuck to the glass. This can be removed with a glass blade.
This answer assumes that prints from the computer are fine...

When using the ADF to scan multiple document the scanner assembly stay stationary and the paper is fed across it. Where the scanner parks for this there is something between the scanner and the document, likely on the glass. Often there is a small strip of glass on one end of the scanner bed. Clean here if there is one, otherwise look around and I'm sure you'll find it. Remember, never spray cleaning solutions directly onto the glass, always onto a cloth or towel first. The scanner has a calibration strip that can be damaged otherwise.

When I make a photocopy I get a dark vertical line down the page. In fact, now I get two dark lines. It has something to do with the scanner, because it happens when I send someone a fax as well. ...


Do you use the automatic document feeder (ADF) when you photocopy and fax? Do you use the platen (lift the cover up) when you scan a document? If so, you probably have some dirt or foreign material in the ADF scanner area, which is a thin glass area to the left of the glass platen. Clean this area with a damp cloth and dry it before trying again. There is a plastic strip covering this area, and if this is scratched it can be removed and replaced.

Black vertical lines on faxes sent using auto document feeder


If you lift up the lid on your scanning device you will notice a glass strip about 1 inch thick and then the large area of glass used for flatbed scanning. The 1 inch strip is used for ADF scanning. Because your papper is moving across the glass strip, any dot, smudge or scratch will affect your scanning and cause verticial lines down the page. Sometimes the dot is not visible to the eye. Get some glass cleaner that has alcohol in it and thoroughly clean the glass strip and it should solve your problem. If it turns out to be a scratch on the glass then cleaning won't help.

Print Problem - vertical lines


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.
