    Thanks! Would the instructions on cleaning those parts be in the regular user manual or do I need a repair manual?

SOURCE: Canon NP-4050 printing almost completely black pages

This problem appears to be that the scanlamp cable has fatigued and become open-circuit. This can be checked by selecting A3 and pressing the START button while having the lid up. Watch to see if the light stays on all the way through the forward pass of scan cycle, it can be intermittent. Make sure that the machine is unplugged before attempting to replace the cable.The drum is definitely on its way out at that amount of copies, but can be made to last a fair bit longer with some fine-tuning.

SOURCE: I am using a gestetner 1502 I am getting and 1/2

It's strange to me the it would take so long to show up. Problems like this typically happen within the first few pages. "Bands" like this are almost always related to the drum or the fuser, but again, it usually happens right away. It's still likely either of those 2 units, but you should have a technician look at it and tell you for sure.

Hp laserjet m1522nf is copying 3inch vertical line in left side of the page and otherwise page is very very clear


If your printed documents are clear then you need to clean small glass which is on left side from big glass. this glass is used for copying from ADF.
Otherwise it is faulty toner cartridge.

My HL2040 printer is printing black vertical lines along the right-hand side of the page, about 3" or so. A month ago I took it apart and cleaned the roller. Still doing it.


If the lines go all the way down the page, check the position of the corona wire cleaner tab (blue or green) at the top front of the drum unit. if not parked fully to one side it will create a solid black lines where it blocks the laser. Otherwise look for some other foreign object (or torn paper piece) that may be blocking the laser from the drum. If the lines are thin and shark, check for scratches on the drum (not repairable without replacing drum). If the lines are uneven thickness but in a pattern that repeats down the page every few inches, then the film on the drum is probably worn or wearing away and the drum needs to be replaced.

Black lines on copy come from toner cartridge, or drum unit, or fuser unit which is in the back. check drum and see if you can see line, back of machine with flash light you may be able to see line on fuser roller. Be carefull Fuser is hot.

HP Officejet Pro 8600 vertical lines on all copies


I had the same problem; it happened with the first copy I tried to make directly from the printer's console - but only with the Black ink function - with the same original on the flatbed glass I then tried the Color function and it worked fine. But when I tried the Black copy function, the strong vertical lines appeared again - about 7, evenly spaced across the page and running the entire length of the page.

Nothing about cleaning any part made sense: the printer was brand new, out of the box, the color ink function worked fine to copy; so did making scan copies. It was only the black ink mode in the copy function with the original on the flatbed glass that produced the vertical lines.

What cleared it up was shutting it down, removing and re-inserting the power cord the other way, i.e., turning it around (which might have nothing to do with the outcome) and Voila! - no vertical lines with the black ink copy function - Go figure...

Broad dark line on right edge of copied papers


If you have the black line on copies and scans but printing from P.C is fine, then your scanner is broken.

Contact your printer manufacturer for a replacement or repair.

HP Laserjet 3330 printed dark page especially around the middle


Does this happen both when copying and printing?
For printing solution, try another toner cartridge.
If lines continue to appear when copying (primarily through the automatic feeder) then lift the auto feeder, and clean the glass -mainly the narrow piece on the left side.

please rate solution :)

I assumed you are using a digital copier/printer, in digital machine there were 2 kinds of diagnosing a problem, and you are right with your observation Copying and Printing, and each have two separate troubleshooting.

If you say that in printing is fine, then the problem is with the scanning part which is in your Optical Unit, here's some pointers

1- Open the optical glass on the top, with screws

2- Observed the optical unit with 3 reflective glass, it could be dirty
3- the middle of the optical system is called the CCD which converts the image from the reflective mirrors, see if you can find dust and dirt.
4- Check the lamp for any sign of dirt this could cause also some problems.

these are the only areas you need to check, nothing else, and this would surely solve this problem

Copying with page feed results in a vertical line on every page


There must be a strip of glass about one inch wide, next to
the large glass. There is the problem !
Clean that strip thourougly. When you use the feeder the pages
are scanned thru the small strip of glass.
