Hi,
If you lift up or open the auto feed you should gain access to a small **** 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.

I get a black line when scanning, ( not when printing)how do i fix it


This is commonly caused by a mark on the scanner plate. If you place your document to scan on the scanner plate (Lift the lid and place it on the glass plate) and scan or copy the document does it come out clean? If you feed the document through the Auto Document Feeder doe the line appear?

If when place on the plate it is clean but fed through the ADF there is a line, then when you lift the lid on the scanner you will see a narrow glass plate at the end (Normally the left end) of the scanner plate. Give this glass a clean and your mark will go away.

If the scan or copy is lined when using the Flatbed scanner and the ADF then the problem will be in the scanner lamp which will be probably uneconomical to fix.

My hp laserjet 2015n is printing a black line down the paper, what is this and can i fix it?


Hi:

One way to determine what is causing this is to do what is called a "panic stop" while printing a document. As the paper is starting to be fed into the printer shut it off and remove the toner cartridge.
You ideally want the paper to be under the print cartridge. Examine the image on the paper. Is the line visible on the paper at this point? If so, then the problem is with the print cartridge and it will have to be replaced. If the line is not showing up on the paper then the most likely culprit is the fuser section. This is were the toner on the paper is fused to the paper by heat and pressure. The heat roller or heat sleeve could have a line on it which would correspond to the line you are seeing on the paper.

When I send a fax through the document feeder it prints out at the other end with a black line down the page. I have cleaning my cartridges and everything else.


If the line only shows on ADF and not off the glass copies (where you lift the lid and place then item right on the glass), then there is something on the glass that the ADF uses. If you open lid you should be able to see the section of glass where documents that are fed through the ADF pass over. Make sure that this glass is spotless and use a cloth dampened with window cleaner to ensure that you get any label adhesive off the. Often even very faint bits stuck to the glass that you can hardly see will show up as black lines.

Ricoh MP 2500 copied documents have a line across top of page when fed into document feeder when document is scanned the line appears on the scanned version as well. line does not appear on...


Clean the scanner strip glass. This is the thinner strip of glass that runs from front to back right next to the large glass. This glass is only used when scanning/copying using the document feeder. The line you are seeing is because something has become stuck to the glass so when the documents are fed over the strip of glass, the scanner reads the stationary spot of debris as a solid line. Clean the glass very well using a cloth and some glass cleaner. I have seen something get under the glass as well but this is very rare. Rest assured tho that the line is being caused by something on this strip of glass.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Original document fed into top feed tray of mfc 7440N model come out with few thin black lines on the mid left of the scanned file. Scanning file from glass has no issue.


You need to clean the narrow glass strip on the left side of the machine when you open the cover. There is likely lint or something on this glass. This is where the auto document feeder pages are "imaged".

Black lines down on printed page


This is caused by dirt/debrise on the ADF (automatic document feeder) scanner glass. You need to open up the feeder where your originals are fed in and look for a strip of glass that runs from front to back. It is about an inch or so wide. You need to clean this glass to get rid of the lines. Some models have this glass just to the left of the large main glass, but in your case I beleive it is in the feeder itself.
Good Luck.

HP 9500 mfp: All pages aren't being stapled and it's printing a perfect black line about 2/3 down the page of all documents fed through the ADF.


Black line.....there are 2 smaller rectangular glasses that the pages are scanned through. When you lift the ADF you will see one of them next to the large glass platen, the other is on the underside of the ADF. Clean these with a wetwipe or alcohol.
The pages not being stapled, on the exit tray where the pages come out after being stapled there is a set of black rollers near there that get dirty and will not feed them into the stapler easily, you can clean these with WD40
