HP Officejet 6300 All-in-one machine makes black streaks
When I use the automatic document feeder to make black and white pr color copies the copies have a black streak down the middle of the page. This does not happen when I make indivudual copies by placeing the orginal on the glass plate. There are no black streaks when I use the machine to print a document.

Re: HP Officejet 6300 All-in-one machine makes black...
The problem is that that there a small piece of glass that the doc feeder use's to scan the orginal. You will have to clean the small glass it's about a half of a inch piece and is normally under the doc feeder unit. It will either be to the right side of the main copy board glass or it is under the doc feed unit where the paper goes down through the feeder. It is mostly some white out on the glass, just clean with a dam cloth with water or windex..... Good Luck

Does it still print ok? To troubleshoot you should try to copy from the glass and through the automatic document feeder to make sure it is a problem with the scanner and not a piece of paper blocking the scanning path.
There is a good chance that your color ink cartridge needs replacement. You can tray wetting a paper towel and putting in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds then placing the cartridge on it for a few minutes. This sometimes will correct that type of problem...Be careful the paper towel will be hot (handle with care).
If the automatic document feeder (ADF) does not pick up any pages at all, the rollers
inside the automatic document feeder need to be cleaned.
If the automatic document feeder picks up multiple pages instead of single
sheets, the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder needs to be cleaned.
SolutionLoad one or two sheets of unused plain white full-size paper into the document
feeder tray, and then press Start Copy Black
to pull the pages through the
automatic document feeder. The plain paper releases and absorbs residue from the
rollers and separator pad.NOTE:If the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, try
cleaning the front roller. Wipe the roller with a soft lint-free cloth dampened
with distilled water.
If the problem persists, or the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain
paper, clean the rollers and separator pad manually. Follow the procedures below to remove the face
plate from the front of the automatic document feeder, access the pick assembly
inside the automatic document feeder, clean the rollers or separator pad, and then
reattach the face plate.
If it is just when you copy and not when you print then it is a cleaning issue. Toner cartridge would cause the line to appear on copies, printouts and faxes. There is a piece of glass inside the auto document feeder that is probably dirty. Open up the document feeder as if you were clearing an original document jam. Look for a piece of glass inside the ADF, it will run the length of the document feeder. There is probably some dirt or another popular problem is white out. Clean off the glass with glass cleaner or alcohol and it should fix the problem.
the document feeder of that unit have its own scanner glass. try opening the document feeder and clean the scanner glass with a lint free cloth that is moist with water and also clean the rollers of the document feeder
there is a dirt on the ADF (CIS contact image sensor) that reads your document, identify where the lines came from either from top or bottom then open your adf and clean the affected area. this will solve the problem.
have you tried cleaning the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder?

First you need to determine if it's doing from both the top and the glass.
1-assuming you are using the feeder to fax,copy or scan (the part that automatically picks up the paper) it comes out with a streak. Make a copy putting the paper on the glass and look at the copy. Does it have the streak?
2-lift the top and look to the left there should be a small 1inch glass, this is where it makes the copies from the feeder, is there a dot or white out or is the glass dirty? that's your streak, the paper is moving to make the copy,so the dot now looks like a line as opposed to making a copy on the glass it just sits there so a dot will stay a dot.
