Hey,
you've spilled some cartridge ink on the
FEEDER ROLLS, or in the PAPER PATH... Run a few double sided test patterns, problem will do its own housekeeping... Be more careful with handling your INK CARTRIDGES !!!

Black lines on copiers!!


Hi!!

If you are making copies on a machine that has a ADF (automatic document feeder)on and your copies come out with black lines on them,but when you make copies from the glass there are no lines on the copies then the small glass on the left,has a mark on it!What i do is put the copy with the black line on,on the glass face up so you can see the line,now,more or less where the black line is on the copy,is where you can look on the thin strip of glass to the left,for a mark or thin line!!Clean it with a damp cloth and no more lines!!

Enjoy!!

We have a black line down the center of all copies...


If the problem only happens on copies or sent faxes then no it is not your drum. There is something on your scan glass. My guess is you are getting the line on your copies when you run the original through the document feeder. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on

Thin black line appears on all copies ONLY from form feeder


Hi sounds like you have a particle on the window in the feeder. What hapens is when the light scans the paper your copying the particle of dirt shows up as a line. Simply clean it with a soft cloth and mild window cleaner. . Thank you for using Fixya.com

When paper is fed through the feeder the copies have a black line


that is because there is a speck of dirt on the reader clean out lens....since the paper goes through the speck of dirt it looks like a line but it really is just one dot.

Black vertical lines in copies


You need to clean the glass. Open up the feeder and you have a large piece of glass for scanning and to the left a smaller piece of glass that it uses to scan from the feeder. Clean this smaller piece of glass; even the slightest smudge can leave a black streak.

Black line on copies


If your copier has an automatic feeder and your line is present when using the feeder but not when you copy from the glass,just clean the small glass at the point where the line appears.

Black lines on copies when run thru fax feeder


There is a thin strip of glass that you will see when you lift the top feeder. There is most likely white-out on it.

When you use the top feeder, it doesn't use the large glass, it only 'rolls' the original document over this small strip of glass.
