I have kodak i2600 scanner, when i was scanned document its getting black lines on the document how to solve this problem please help me


Black lines on most any scanner will be caused by dirt in the scanning system, or by a damaged/defective scanner sensor. You can clean the window.

BLACK MARK ON THE COPIES OR SCANNED IMAGE


Clean the slit glass under the document feeder. Lift the feeder and find the thin piece of glass on either the left or right side and give it a good cleaning - you marks will likely go away.

Scanned document has a black verticle narrow line 3 1/4 " from the left edgle all the way down the page


Hi walt_latimer,

If when you copy or fax something and it has a black line running down the page, it is often caused by a dust, dirt spot or mark on the glass where it is being scanned. The easiest way to resolve this is by cleaning the feeder glass that reads it with a clean cloth.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My scanner is now adding a page with a black line that runs from top to bottom of the page and the actual document scanned is page 2. But the document is fine with no line through it. Does this mean that...


Check your scanner software settings. It is probably set at duplex ever time you start to scan. That is why you get two pages for every pass, the front and the back. You must place the document in the feeder in a way that the front side of the document is page 2. You may want to flip it next time you scan. So the main question is why there is black line from top to bottom? That is because there is a piece of dirt stuck on the glass of the scanner. You see, this scanner actually does two scanning when a page runs through it: the front and the back in duplex mode. So there are two scanners in side the box. The front page scanner apparently is dirty and needs to be cleaned with clean cloth and lens cleaner.

One sided scanning is fine, but two sided scans have a 1/4 inch black line vertically down the left side. Cleaning does nothing.


When you say one sided scans are OK, are you using the ADF (auto document feeder) or the flatbed? Are you using the ADF for the two sided scan? What parts have you cleaned thus far? A little more info please?

thanks

Black line in the middle of the output - scaned document


Hello,

A black line down a scanned page indicates a dirty scan glass. Lift the top of you scanner like you would putting a page or book down to scan. On the end of the scanner that has the document feeder you should see a thin piece of glass the is separate from the larger glass pane. This is the document feeder glass. Now check it over for a very small mark of ink or dirt. You can use regular glass cleaner to wipe this glass just spray it on a piece of cloth not the scanner then wipe. You may have to wipe and then try scanning several times if the ink or marker is died on. while you are cleaning you should also clean the main glass pane, it will make the scans clearer and crisper.

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

Line down center


Often this is merely a mark on the scanner glass. When using the automatic document feeder the light/sensor will stay in one spot and motors will feed it. Make sure to clean the glass in this part usually left of the large glass area is a smaller strip see if there is a mark on the glass there.

Line on Scanned Documents


There is a spot on the thin strip of glass that sits next to the large scanner glass. Because you are moving the paper when using the feeder, a spot appears as a line. Shining a flashlight on the glass can help you locate it. You can scrape it off with a finger nail or clean it with a damp cloth.

Scanner inserts vertical line on some documents


Clean the glass with IsoPropyl Alcohol. Dont use any other solvent. A speck of dust stuck to the glass can give a continuous line in the output
