Photosmart c6180 sheet fed scanner puts solid line down middle

My Photosmart c6180 sheet fed scanner puts a solid line down middle of scans.

I have looked over that part of the scanner and can't see a way in to clean it. I assume some small piece has gotten lodged in there.

Scans on the flatbed are fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Scanning a document from the ADF results in a line down the middle of each page scanned. Scanning from the platen (not using the ADF) works fine


Lift the scanner cover so that you can see the platen glass. Look to the left of the large sheet of glass and you will see a narrow strip of glass. This is the area used to scan documents fed from the ADF. Make sure that this glass is very clean. Use a damp cloth to clean any dirt or buildup.

I get a line through my scan with my hp photosmart C6180, What can I do?


If it is a vertical line, you could review the HP support documentation for your Photosmart C6180 here:

HP Vertical Lines Bands Streaks

For horizontal lines, try using the HP "toolbox" to clean the print heads. You may need to repeat this process until you achieve a satisfactory result.

Black line down the middle of scanned documents.


Try leaving the cover open and run a test scan, once with a fresh sheet as the item to be scanned and then a second time without anything on the table.  You may see what is blocking the light source or possibly a defect in it.
Scanning is done left-right, left-right across the width of the page and the vertical stripe indicates that the blockage is present during each scanned line.
In servicing copiers and multifunction machines, I have found a number of curious contaminents, one of the most annoying was a moth, still alive, that would randomly sit on the lamp, causing some pages to come out OK, others not. 
If your copies and printouts are coming out fine, then only the scanner can be at fault.

My Xerox Documate 510 adds a line from top to bottom down each scanned document. The line only appears when something is fed into the paper feeder and does not happen when scanned single sheet at a time on...


you probably have something on the scanning bulb when it goes through the feeder. The scanning bulb is directly to the left of where you use the flatbed. Clean that glass with a dry, clean cloth and you should be back in business.

Black line down middle of scan


Well I hate to give out bad news but if that line is in the exact same location on every scan it means that the element (the scanning light) has failed. Sorry that I could not earn a FixYa for you. If you need to replace the scanner I have had excellent luck with Epson scanners. Here is a link to a few on Amazon.com for refrence.

Just copy the link and paste it into your web browser. there are also some very good all in one options. I have had this one for a year and it works well:

Hope that was at least helpful.
Take Care,
