    The scanner unit seems to be working properly, because when I send a fax to another machine it comes out flawlessly.

Pages printed with dark horizontal lines the entire length of the page with a repeating (lighter) images.


I have seen bad laser scanners cause this...
A black line across the page from left to right, of various widths, at various intervals, all the way down the page.
First, though, I would reseat the toner cartridge. If the problem disappears, you are in luck!
Try another Toner Cartridge to see if the problem disappears.
It could also be a bad control board.
Good Luck.

Free solution of black bars on paper while printing on xerox dc 12 printer


Most likely this indicates a drum cleaning blade failure. This is especially true if the black Bars run up and down the page and get worse on multiple copy runs. So if you run 10 copies the last one out will be worse than the first one out. If this is the case, cleaner blades are pretty in-expensive at around $40.00.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My printer will not print any documents, it does print a test page, when I select print the paper is ejected. I have re installed the software.


Try to print a self test page from the printer directly using the below steps....
  1. Make sure the printer is loaded with plain, white paper. Remove any special or colored paper.
  2. Press Setup on the front panel of the product.
  3. Press 1 , to select Print Report , then 5 , to select Self Test .After you have the report printed, check for 4 horizontal color bars in that report, the first color should be the the black one, if the black one is missing, issue seems to be with black cartridge, that may be the reason the printer spits out blank paper, try to replace the black cartridge and then copy if it copies or not.

1}DVDR 3480 playback on many Dvds widescreen insteadof 4.3 as set. 2) my Vcr. has 3pin phono. Dvdr scart to Phono .Xt2 says nosignal. Phono tophono (cam socket) no signal .cannot copt tape to DVD. 3)B W...


1) The 4:3 / 16:9 option only optimises playback for that particular type of TV. The 4:3 setting also allows you to set the output between:

  • 4:3 PS - expands the picture vertically and horizontally which gets rid of the black bars, but you also lose the left and right edges of the picture.
  • 4:3 LB - Letterbox format, displays the full picture from the disc, with black bars top and bottom.
The PS option loses the bars on 16:9 widescreen DVDs, but may still leave bars on true cinema widescreen DVDs, which are 21.7:9
This is normal.
  • 16:9 - Optimises the picture for a widescreen TV. Again True cinema widescreen DVDs will still have black bars.
2) All of the external inputs will show "No signal" until there is actually a signal playing into them.
EG to copy VHS to DVD, you will need to select the relevant scart or phono input, and press play before the recorder will register a signal and allow recording.
Some bought VHS videos have copy protection, and may cause problems when copying to DVD.

3) Greenish playback maybe caused by colour setting on TV being too high. Also check Hue or Tint settings on the TV, if it has them.

4) For some reason, in their infinite wisdom, Philips omitted the Video Plus facility from this model.

HORIZONTAL Lines on faxed/scanned pages.


I've seen this before. Since the printer portion is working fine that points to the scanner mechanism as the culprit. There are two things I have seen cause this. 1) If the line is a perfect rectangle all the way to the edge of the page then the light bar itself is dying and there isn't much you can do to save the unit. Send it in for warranty repair if you have the option. 2) If the line is more like a skid mark like you mentioned, then the paper that is being scanned is not pressing up fully against the light bar. Not enough light is bouncing off the page and the scanner can't read it well. This can also be caused by a roller not feeding correctly and then bunching up the paper a little bit. I would check the rollers for wear or something being off center. This can sometimes be caused if the machine has ran a high volume or thick paper. I would really think the cause would be one of these two since you are getting the marks at odd intervals, if the intervals were regular it could *possibly* be the drum but as I stated before, with the print function working right, I doubt it.

Colored bars across page


I would try changing the ink cartridges and if you don't have a new set at least take out the ones you have and reseat. Also check Epson's site for new drivers. Try printing from a different program.
