Does this happen when using the document feeder? If so place the original document on the big glass a make a copy did the lines go away if so when you are using the document feeder you are not using the big glass but the small slit glass check if it is clean. If the line are also on copy when using the big glass you have a problem with your drum, cleaning blade, corona, or fuser unit (hot Part). Have atech check it out, Does it print OK?
There is something on your scan glass. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on. Once the glass is clean your problem is solved!
Are the lines horizontal or vertical? DO you get lines on B/W copies (black and white) also? If you try to copy a blank white page do you get the lines? Does the toner / lines wipe off after the copy comes out? If the toner wipes off after the copy comes out you have a problem in the fusing unit ( the hot area that fixes the image onto the page). If the lines are vertical then you have something inside the device that is dragging across the page as it goes through the device. If the lines are horizontal then you it could be the drum cleaning blade, the transport blade, or charge roller. The noise could be that one of the blades are bouncing. It could be that a gear is worn. Please give more info on the problem to better help.
does the line only show up when making copies from the adf or both when you put it on the glass. if only when thru the adf the **** glass is dirty. that is the glass that is only about an inch wide. be carefull of the two pieces of tape that are on both the front and back of that glass they fall off easly.
you don't mention whether the document you are copying also appears on the paper.If it does you could have 1 of 2 problems- The drum cleaning system could be at fault or- the fuser roller has picked up some **** easy test...... run copies and when the 1st copy edge appears switch OFF. This is a crash stop.Now examine the sheets in there.Is the stripe on the copy before the fuser (Heat) roller? If yes you could have a drum cleaning problem, usually fixed by changing the drum module.If no and the stripe appears after the heat roll, the problem is with the fuser system,dirty rolls etc. There are a number of other problems with stripes, but you have to start somewhere! If the document does NOT appear on the copy, forget all above, could be scan or ROS problem
Most likely your drum unit is worn out. If it reaches the yield of 50k or more, it starts to develop grooves in the drum and toner gets stuck in the groove and is applied to your pages. If you have a service company, they can change it for you. We sell the drum for $220.
