Hello,
You need to get to the scanner's Glass area and what you will sometimes find is some ink or white-out there all it takes is a small drop or smear to screw things up. Clean the glass with isopropyl alcohol, then some glass cleaner and the lines will go away.

Good Luck!

Vertical Light Streaks on text documents, both single and duplex


Clean the glass thoroughly using Isopropyl alcohol. Dont use solvents. Check if there is any scratch on the glass. Repeated scanning with stapler pins can scratch the glass. If it is scratched, you may need to chage it.

When printing or faxing from the top tray of my HP OfficeJet 6310 all in one I get a line that runs down the entire page on the copy or fax to the recipient. I have tried cleaning the glass and rollers...


The key to solving this problem lies in what you observed. It only happens when you use the document feeder. As you noted, when you place it on the glass, there is no line.

When you use the feed, your machine does not pull the document onto the main glass to scan it with a moving bar. Instead, the bar parks itself under the roller section, and the document gets scanned as it rolls past the stationary bar. A spot or speck that blocks the light bar as the document rolls past manifests itself as a vertical line.

Lift up the left cover and the roller carriage and you will see a narrow pane of glass about 1-1/2" wide. This is what you clean. I cleaned mine twice, unsuccessfully, with a glass wipe. Then I decided to align the streak on my copy with the glass, and saw the faintest speck.You may have to look VERY VERY hard under a bright light, but it will be there. A third, more vigorous and direct scrub and the speck was gone--so was the streak.

If the vertical line appears in both modes (document-fed and manual) then there is something on the light bar, or the bar has a broken scan pixel. If the main glass were dirty, you would not see a line, but random spots, and then only when fed manually. Dirty feed rollers can make lines, but not usually the clean, precise lines that are created by a blocked scan bar.

Vertical colored lines in a scan


If the lines appear in the same location everytime, then it is from the scanner glass. Clean it thoroughly. No solvents except Isopropyl alcohol for cleaning.

Scanner leaves three vertical lines on scanned page


Hello,

A dirty glass base can cause ‘spots’ or blemishes to appear on your final printout. Additionally, if you had some sort of opaque liquid that may have transferred on to the glass base from a previous operation. But the majority of the unwanted vertical lines are generally caused by either a dirty or damaged print roller or faulty LEDs in the Scanner Module.

To separate one from the other you have to check the following:

Do you only see the lines with a Scan operation?
Do your print jobs print fine without any unwanted lines?

If you only see the unwanted lines during a Scan operation, then most likely you have a fault/dirty/obstructed LED module.

If you see the unwanted lines with all print operations (Scan, Print and Copy), then you most likely have a worn out, damaged or dirty Print Roller.

Hope this helps…

Print Problem - vertical lines


If the problem only occurs when using the document feeder, the problem is not usually caused by the drum. When using the document feeder, try to notice where the scanner (the light assembly under your scan glass)stops just before the paper is being fed. Some multifunction machines have a small piece of glass that is separate from the large scan glass and the scanner assembly stays parked underneith it as the original is being fed over it. Most likely there is something on the glass where the scanner parks as originals are being fed thru the feeder. When putting your original on the large scan glass to copy, the mark on the glass will only show as a spot, but will show as a vertical line thru the whole copy when using the feeder.
