    My cannon copy machine puts a black line down the center of my paper that I copy. How do I fix that? You did not give me any solution to this.

    My copy machine is a cannon 350. It is a small personal copy machine that I use for school work. I am a teacher.

    Not sure I have not tried it yet. I will go to school and get the machine and give it a try. I'll let you know.

Remove and clean the Photo Conductor Unit (the drum).
Remove and gently tip from side to side the toners to make the powder inside even.

    If the black stripe only shows up in a copy but not by printing from the computer, inspect and clean the flatbed scanner glass.

    I need more information before I can troubleshoot, like what is the model number, does this happen only for copies, is your unit a multifunction printer, etc..

    Generally, this issue is caused by a faulty drum unit. Check the drum and look for any silver marks on it. If you do, it means the drum is faulty, and you will need to replace it. Also take out the toner cartridge, and try to redistribute the toner by shaking the cartridge back and forth for a bit. It could also be that the drum cleaning wiper is dirty/broken and will have to be replaced.

    In all probability, however, I'd say it is a faulty drum unit. You can contact Canon at this number for addition support: 1-800-828-4040

Black stripe running down left side of paper when


Open the top of the fax where your documents go in. There will be a thin **** of glass where the document is read. On the end that reads "dirty" is a smudge or some white-out that needs to be cleaned. You may have to clean it with some cloth wrapped on a flat tool. Do not scrap or scratch anything, just clean enough to get the dirt off. Then make a test copy.

Black stripe down right side of incoming faxes and copies, cleaned view window but still there and actually got worse.


pull your drum unit out and look at the top of it. you will see a blue plastic tab. that tab has got to be all the way on the left side. if not, it will cause a black stripe about 3/4" wide.

In what direction to you put in the paper when sending a fax? Up or Down?Front or Back? Thanks


Up or down doesn't matter much, as the recipient can always turn the printout around :) But generally putting the documents upside down will make the fax scan the top of the page first.
As far as front/back is concerned, it depends on the construction - if you look at the document feeder you will see a symbol of a sheet with a corner bent, showing the back side. If there are stripes (symbolizing text) on that corner, you must put the document(s) face down; if the stripes are on the rest of "sheet" - put them face up.
In your case most probably it will be face down. You can always check that, and the quality of document scanning (whether the document is not too light for example) by using the "Copy" function of your fax.

A bar code stripe on the right side of the copy.


i'm not sure if you're talking about a solid black band or a bunch of little stripes running down page. does it happen when you run an internal report or only on copies? if its a black solid band, check and make sure the bluish colored tab on top of the drum is all the way to the left side. if its a group of fine lines, depending on whether it happens on internal reports or not, it could be the drum is going bad or you may have a bad scanner. write back with a little more info if this suggestion doesn't work.

good luck,

Black line on faxes


Check carefully the glass, a very small point of ink or anything else can cause the black stripe. usually  it is that the problem. use windex to clean it.

okay it sounds like you have something wrong with the scanner which could be one of a few things.start by really looking close at the black stripe you need to make a copy of something with text across the entire black stripe. try both laying a sheet on the glass and throught the document feeder. what you are looking to see is if it's still able to scan the text and just is very dark in that area or if it's solid black with no text being exposed. one means that either your scanner is being blocked in that area due to dirt, white-out, smudges on glass, dust etc. the later being a diffective scanner.. I would clean glass paying close attention to the 1 " **** glass on the left that's what the machine uses to scanning with the document feeder. if you haven't solved it yet and you Must then lift the document feeder open, be sure machine is off. remove 5-6 screws securing the 2 guide plates for the glass, before doing so notice there is a gap between the two peices. the **** glass is for using the document feeder the other is orginal glass, they are two pieces so be careful when lifting the glass and clean both sides, then while you have the glass out, very gently hold the shiny mirrors just below and very gently slide to the left, there are 3 mirrors that may need to be cleaned using glass cleaner on very soft cloth, doing this ever so gently.
I hope this helps.

Thank You,
Mikey
