Ok so if the copy is streaking of the glass then it is more than likley the drum you can also try printing a report add functions report settings select a report then ok if the report comers out with streaks you eliminate all optics problems then it is most liklly drum. if the toner is smearing and not fusing to the paper it could be the fuser

Sharp IR 2016 platine glass dirty


The cover plate is above the glass white surface of the scanner. If this is the same dirty stains will come out on copies.
The glass must be clean.
By feeding the original documents through the ADF, the scanner lamp is no longer the path to scan, the ADF is responsible for passing the original document over the scanner, while it remains still placed on the side under a thin glass is to a large glass side. This also must be clean, otherwise you will be black lines on each point or spot on the glass.
Good luck ...

Copy off glass copy is good. copy from ADF copy is blurry


The problem is either dirty glass for the ADF which you can clean, or the ADF cannot feed the paper you are trying to scan through accurately. Most smaller all in one printers use the same scanner element for both the ADF and flat glass scanning so the fact that glass scanning is fine points to the two problems listed above.

I have Brother MFC 7820N when I send a fax the pages been received has a black vertical line in the middle of the page. If you could tell me please what kind of maintenance i have to do to eliminate this...


Most likely the cause is something stuck to your ADF scanner glass but let's do a few tests first.
Make a COPY with your machine using the document feeder. Now make a copy of the same document by laying the document down on the glass. One or both of these copies should have the black line. If they do not then there is nothing wrong with your machine. If the copy made from the Document Feeder has the line but the copy made from the Glass does not then the trouble is with your ADF scanner glass which is quite common. Just look to the left of your large main glass. You should see a thin strip of glass runing front front to rear. This is your ADF scanner glass. On some models this glass is contained inside the ADF feed unit. Just cleaned the glass thoroughly with a soft cloth and some glass cleaner.
Now if by chance you get the same line from both then you may have debris on the scanner mirrors. The scanner unit that travels back and forth under the glass would need to be cleaned if this is the case. The glass would need to be removed and then you can clean the small mirrors in the scanner using cotton tip swabs.
Most likely tho it is just the ADF scanner glass. This is true because this glass has documents traveling over it and sometimes specks of dirt, whiteout or other materials get deposited on it.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Hp LJ 4345 mfp vertical line down printed copies


Dirt.
Open the ADF, the top of the scanner/copier.
The ADF glass is the thin strip of glass on the left. Damp cloth with windex or any glass cleaner. Scrub the strip of glass.

Black copies canon laser class 510 only when using the adf. copies fine from the glass.


Are the copies solid black or black lines ? If there are black lines, try cleaning the **** glass under the ADF ( above the large glass ).

When I use the adf to copy something there are always two lines on one side of the paper (to mark the copy). How can I change the setting for this problem. It does not occur when not using the adf. Thank...


Hi;

If you are only getting the lines when using the ADF , but not when placing the document on the glass then there is some type of debris on the scan glass.

This is a small strip of glass that is independent of the copy glass. This glass should be to the left or right of the copy glass. Just glean this well with alcohol or windex and try copying again from the ADF and see if the problem is gone.

Good Luck

Every Fax we send has stripes going down it making it hard for the receiver to read our faxes. It doesn't happen when we receive fax, print or make copies.


You say it makes copies without the stripes. Do you use the automatic document feeder (ADF) when you make copies, or open the top and lay the paper on the platen? If you get stripes when using the ADF, the ADF scanner area needs to be cleaned. It's the smaller glass area to the left of the main platen glass. Use a damp cloth and remove any dirt or debris.

Colored Vertical Lines when ADF Scanning


the scanner system using ADF is not the same as in using from the platen glass, (CIS usually called contact image sensor) reads your document and sends the info to be printed, chances are your CIS assembly could be dirty and have some dirt on its surface, try opening this area on the top of ADF and clean with a moistened cloth, especially the affeced left margin, it should work!
