Usually cleaning the glass over the LEDS will take care of any lines. I reccomend you try this first.

Lift the scanner top, then look at the narrow pane of glass. There probably is a spek of dust or ink on it. Clean it with alcohol. I've had to remove the glass, due to the speck being on the undersaide of the glass.

Also, lift the ADF cover and clan the rollers with a damp cloth.

I am scanning a photo. I have translucent lines running horizontal through the picture before i print it.


Documents scanned/copied from the document feeder pass over a thin glass area where scanning occurs. Clean this area if sent faxes, copies or scans have black or white vertical lines.
  1. Lift the document cover to expose the platen glass.

  2. Wipe the ADF scan area (C) with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water.

  3. Then wipe with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth making sure there are no residues left, especially on the platen glass.

  4. Close the document cover and make a copy of a text document to confirm the black line has disappeared.

Ricoh MP 2500 copied documents have a line across top of page when fed into document feeder when document is scanned the line appears on the scanned version as well. line does not appear on...


Clean the scanner strip glass. This is the thinner strip of glass that runs from front to back right next to the large glass. This glass is only used when scanning/copying using the document feeder. The line you are seeing is because something has become stuck to the glass so when the documents are fed over the strip of glass, the scanner reads the stationary spot of debris as a solid line. Clean the glass very well using a cloth and some glass cleaner. I have seen something get under the glass as well but this is very rare. Rest assured tho that the line is being caused by something on this strip of glass.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Verticle lines appear on document when scanning through document feeder. No verticle lines on document when it is scanned face down on the glass. How do I clean the document feeder?


There is a thin strip of glass next to the main platen glass, where documents fed through the feeder are scanned. You most likely have Wite-Out or some sort of debris stuck to the glass. You can probably wipe this residue off, but if you need to clean that strip of glass, use alcohol and a lint-free rag.

Canon D860 - I get a solid black line when I use paper feeder.


I'm pretty sure you might have solved this problem already, but this might help others.

Make sure that the platen glass is clean near the right side of the machine, where the document is scanned when going through the document scanner. Remember, when placing a document on the glass to copy it that way, you would place it on the glass on the left side of the machine. When scanning through the ADF, the scanning unit itself moves to the right side of glass and scans the document as it moves through.

We had the same issue and found out that there was a little spec of dirt on the glass. After cleaning it, the problem was solved.

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.

Lines showing up on document after scanned


Do you have lines, too when scanning a document?
In this case the scanner glas needs cleaning. Use a soft cloth and some glass cleaning solution and wipe the scanner glass. The lines should disappear.
