Hi,
If you lift up or open the auto feed you should gain access to a small sliver of glass underneath the autofeeder. Clean that glass with alcohol or some other glass cleaner. That should clear this up.

If any debris get on that glass the result is dark lines caused when the page travels over that part of the glass. Hope this helps. Let me know.

How to get rid of the vertical black line on the paper?


Usually replacing the toner cartridge fixes that problem. Sometimes it's the fuser.

How do i fix the black streak in my coppies


Could be many things. Maybe as simple as cleaning the **** glass under the feeder if it only happens when using the document feeder but not when making a copy from the glass. If both copies from the feeder and the glass have lines then it is probably coming from the drum or fuser area inside the machine.

I have tried everthing in "Lexmark X5495 Help"


Sounds like you just need a new printer. Some times the encoder wheel can get dirty with aerosolized ink and it will start to skip lines. The encoder wheel is a small plastic wheel on the paper feed of your printer. Around the edge of the wheel are hundreds of small thin black lines. As paper goes through the printer it counts these lines as the wheel turns to know how far to push the paper. If ink or debris gets between the lines over time it can start counting two lines as one and thus advance the paper too far, causing blank space between prints. See the below picture of a printer encoder wheel for reference. My professional opinion is to not purchase Lexmark. New Canon printers are very reliable with a high quality output, look for one that uses CLI-221 cartridges. Or most any HP.

Black lines on photo


Are the lines always in the same places? If they are, then I would try using different photo paper. Humidity plays a big factor when printing with any kind of paper and buying new paper would be a good start. Make sure that the paper is made for your printer specifically. You might also try printing on plain paper to see if you get the same results.
