Small dent in paper

I am having a problem with a small dent appearing about half way across the page and it repeats about every 4.5 inches vertically down the page. The dent is small, about 1/8 inch diameter and about 1/64 deep. Your help is appreciated

Oce 7051 plain copier has dust or something on one of the rollers - prints have a trail of marks across sheet, repeating every 10 inches from top to bottom of page. Probably need to remove or access...


If the drum has marks on it, you might have to replace it.  Sometimes the fuser rollers can leave marks on them as well.
Check for lines on the drum first.  If they are there, it could need a drum replacement.

Scanner leaving black streaks


There are two possible fixes.

Download the latest firmware update by CLICKING HERE

The following is provided by courtesy of Lexmark:
Problem Vertical lines; Auto document feeder scan anomaly; ADF scanning problem; Scan issue; Scanner issue; Visible line; Streaks show on page; solid line down the page; Top to bottom line; Smudge runs down the page; Opaque line; Broken line; Bar all the way down the page Solution Overview

This article provides the self-diagnostic steps necessary to evaluate top-to-bottom streaks that appear when copying or scanning.

Important! This is seldom a scanner hardware failure.

The main reason for this anomaly is debris or marks on the scanner glass that is used for Auto document feeder (ADF) page scans.

Printed or Scanned Page Illustration

Who should consider this article?

Any user of an MFP or All-In-One printer experiencing the following symptoms:

  • -Vertical lines only when using the Autodocument Feeder (ADF).
  • -Observed with any type of scan job (e-mail, ftp, solutions, fax).
  • -However, normal expected output when the page is scanned from the scanner flatbed.



ADF scan behavior

Think of it this way:

  • -The page is pulled from the ADF.
  • -The moving page slides across an ADF-designated portion of glass.
  • -The image sensor, which is located under the glass, reads and interprets the moving page's contents.
  • -Contamination on this ADF glass is seen by the image sensor for the entire length of the page.
  • -The image processor interprets the image sensor's repeated capture of this contamination as a vertical solid line.
  • -Any ADF scan function now exhibits a vertical line.

Suggested Diagnosis and Fix




Step Action 1 Locate the portion of the glass designated for ADF scans.
HINT: The glass location differs by model. This area is often separate from the scanner flatbed. Please reference User's Guide for more information if you are having a difficult time locating this designated area.
2 Perform a visual inspection for any of the following recurring culprits:

  • -Clear adhesive tape
  • -Glue
  • -Ink pen
  • -Paper
  • -Marker
  • -White out
  • -Staples
  • -Environmental dust or dirt
HINT: Ink marks can be especially hard to see and almost translucent at first sight. However, the image sensor (CCD) registers them as a mark. 3 Use a clean, soft, moistened cloth to thoroughly clean and remove any marks or debris. 4 Inspect the underbelly or underside of the ADF for any marks or debris. 5 Perform another scan to see if cleaning the glass alleviated the issue. 6 Repeat the procedure if a vertical line still appears.
Remember! Printing and scanning from the scanner flatbed work fine.
7 This time, place an intentional mark on a blank sheet of paper and take note of its location. Now place that sheet of paper in the ADF and make a copy.
8 Evaluate the distance of the vertical line to the your mark. 9 Inspect that area of the glass for further debris or marks and clean as necessary.

I am getting a blue line on my scans when utilizing the feeder


The feeder sends the original across a small piece of glass. The scanner stays in one position as the paper runs across it rather than the scanner moving and paper staying still. The little piece of glass is probably a 1/2 inch by 12 inch glass. just clean that strip of glass. use alcohol. there is probably some whiteout on the glass. It will appear as a dot. When the paper runs across it, the dot is run across the whole page causing the line. if you cant find the strip of glass, run a scan and try to see where the scan light sits while it's running. Clean everywhere where the light sits.

Black Smear


go to page13-9 routine maintenance section, where it says to clean the glass strip on top of it there is a white plate (shown) does that plate have ANY dirt or spots etc......?
It MUST be completely WHITE or it will give you black streaks. if it cannot be cleaned then use white out to cover. ( makesure it is completely dry before using).
