Open the document feeder and look for an obstruction.

Clean the roller and pad with isopropyl alcohol.

Also look for a switch actuator trapped down or knocked off.

Black line 1 inch wide right side ,when copies are made and faxing


Hi,
When the paper is fed through Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is is scanned before copy or fax. The scanner is fixed type and is located just below the ADF.
The lines are due to dirty scanner mirror. The printer/ scanner design is based Sheet-Fed Scanner. Open/Lift the Control Panel (scanner top )(by pulling it up from front - the area from where the paper to scan comes out). Look out for the horizontal mirror and use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently clean the scanner mirror, rollers etc. and enjoy clear scanning and copying!

Inspect for any tron pieces of paper dirt etc.DONT USE PAPER, CHEMICALS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTH as it may damage the parts.
Also note that your machine can scan an image only 8.15 inches wide, regardless of how wide the paper is.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Get a black strip when I try to copy or fax a paper. Able to receive a fax without problems. Replaced drum and cartridge and cleaned what I could see, but strip is still there.


sorry but the drum has nothing to do with the SCAN problem, only for PRINTING problems, if you have a BLACK STRIP when you scan, you must check the SCANNING lamp for obstruction (liquid paper contaminant) on the scanning window or for other debrie that prevent the scanner to scan properly is it a dual feed??? (flat bed or top load)???

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.

Could be a sensor in the ADF, or the hinge on the left rear of the scanner cover is broken.

Brother 8840D ADF not working. The flat bed scanner runs instead for fax or copy. Displays Doc Cover Open message


Open ADF and close again. There must be tab in the ADF which is not pressing a microswitch located in the lower part of the ADF. IF you can locate it, try pressing it manually.

Really strange! May be the brightness is not controlled in the ADF mode, too bright to scan data on the backside also. Try reinstallig the software.

Hello, I have an HP OfficeJet 7310 all-in-one print/scanner/fax etc. I purchased about two years ago but don't use very often. Yesterday while I was trying to send a fax I received a loud winding-up...


I have same problem! The copy/scan function would feed the orginal from the ADF halfway and instead of making a normal loud feeding noise it made a horriable alarming sound and displayed an error message. To fix it: I waited a day or two and bang the top of the feeder cover with normal force while the original is feeding. It appeared the problem is resolved. I have no idea what the problem is, however I think if this work for few months at a time is fine by me.

Will not copy


If the paper isn't feeding in the ADF (automatic document feeder - upper paper feeder) then the ADF roller assembly will need to be replaced. Try a copy on the flat glass area. If it work, then it's the ADF, If not then the upper scanner assembly with have to be replaced.
