The copied image isn't squared evenly on the paper.

I have an Officejet v40 that's about four years old and when I copy something it does'nt come out even on the paper. The image isn't evenly spaced on the paper.

What is happening is that the roller that pulls the paper through is slipping so it is pulling the paper through unevenly. You also want to make sure that the guides are snug up against your paper when you feed it through. If it has a lot of slack it can have this problem. If you open the ADF (where you put paper to copy, scan, or fax) like if there was a jam. There will be a roller You can clean these with alcohol and a clean lint free cloth. This could solve your problem but if it return the roller and the pad will have to be replaced.
Hope this helps

Single narrow black vertical line about 1 3/4 inches from right side of copy. Line runs the entire length of the copy. Happens only during copying color or black and white.


Hello,

The line issue is caused by something on the image sensor. To get to it and clean it just pull the front up where you put the paper into it to scan. Inside you will find a glass strip, this is the image sensor. Use a paper towel dampened with window cleaner and gently scrubbing the glass strip, After cleaning the strip let it dry for a minute or teo before you close the cover and try a scan. It should be clear and should copy great again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Do I load the original for faxing right side up or upside down? HP officejet v40


Look at the input tray it shows a symbol of an original.

If the lines on the symbol face you , then put the paper in face UP.
If the lines are on the folded corner of the symbol, then place the paper in face DOWN.

If you are still not sure, place the paper in face UP and press "COPY"
If it copies the page, then that is the correct orientation.

If thre copy is blank, repeat the copy test with the document face DOWN.

A vertical line appears on copies/faxes from my hp officejet v40


It has nothing to do with the wheels you need to clean the glass at the end of the scanner there is a small glass area that the paper goes over (a small dot on the glass will cause a line)

Scanning to computer


I had the same problem if I use the buttons on the v40 and try to scan. I get the V40 can not connect to the PC message.

Workaround:

Go to Control Panel-->Scanners and Cameras

In there you will find: Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet V40 Scanner

Right click and select Scan. It will then start the scan wizard which will scan your document.
