    Thank you SO much!! I removed the drum and sure enough there was a defect where the lines were - so we ordered a new drum and hopefully that will solve the problem! Thank you again!

Sounds like the drum surface has been damaged by some foreign object.

Typically when you get imaging errors such as lines from top to bottom of a page there is a permanent scratch on the drum surface. Pull the drum unit out of the printer/copier and carefully examine the drum surface, you most likely will see the damage quite easily. The only repair is to replace the drum unit with a new one. HOWEVER... be sure to clean the inside of the machine with a toner vacuum to remove any dirt, debris or paperclips, staples, etc that might have accidentally been introduced into the unit.

Hope this helps you out.

Cheers,

Keith

My panasonic kv-s2026c has a black line running down the left side when I scan my documents. I have cleaned the rollers, used air canister to see if anything is stuck in there. That didn't help


On the CD that came with the scanner is a directory called "Shading Utility". Copy this folder to your PC. Put a blank piece of copy paper into your scanner. Open up the Shading Utility folder and then double-click on the shadingutility.exe. The password is "GOSHADING" without the quotes. This process will take a few minutes but it will re-align the lens in the scanner which has gotten out of alignment through vibration. This is what is causing the vertical black line on the left side of the page.

FIRST I would check the scanner glass again you can test it by asking for a report to be printed..ie tx REPORT.. if this dowsnt have a line on it the problem is either the scanner glass or at worst the scanner unit it self.. I would double check the glass.. get a soft cloth and some glass cleaner on it and give the glass a good rub over. do you have the lines on incoming faxes .. if not the glass or scanner unit is the def area to be looking at, Luck A

Marks down left side of copy


There are several things that could be causing this I will TRY to address or suggest on all of them.

1.) If only appears when copying, double check the glass and make sure those areas are cleaned.

2.) If happens at all times, it could be the toner cartridge in the unit (especially if started when just changed). I would try another cartridge (later if you can stand the copies w/ the lines or if you have a spare).

3.) I have seen a lot of these machines do this putting vertical lines down the side of the paper because the fuser assembly has worn out and needs replaced.

I have seen #3 occur sometimes when paper gets jammed in a machine and someone pulls it out too rough, this can cause the slick cover over the fuser to crack, break, or bunch up, needing replaced.

Hope this helps you.

A Solid black line down the left side of the page


It could be 2 things...

1. Your scanner glass is dirty...open the doc feeder and clean the glass. probably Wite-Out.

2. A segment of your scanner assembly lamp is burned out. Not good, uneconomical to repair.

Black line is present when copying document; not


This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

Canon PC860 - Paper Jam resulted in black horizontal lines in subseq.copies


Greetings,
If the blank ink still cames in the printer means that their still ink inside the cartridge, kindly check if there are papers left inside the printer when it was removed if there is you have to take it off.

Turn off the printer, delete the remaining files that is to printed on the printer dialog box by just double clicking the icon found at the bottom of the task bar.

Turn on the power of the printer, have a printer test to test if the pritned copy is good. Clean the head, or the nozzle of the printer at the maintenance tab.

If the problem still arises means the head align was damage or mess align that happend when the paper was remove forcely.

That's all
Thank you.
