Open (lift up) the document feeder. on the left side of the large glass, you should see a thinner, narrower piece of glass. sounds like you have white out or something like that on that glass.

There is dirt on the ADF glass. Normally to the left of the flat bed glass, there is a thin glass strip. Clean it with a damp cloth.

Black lines down on printed page


This is caused by dirt/debrise on the ADF (automatic document feeder) scanner glass. You need to open up the feeder where your originals are fed in and look for a strip of glass that runs from front to back. It is about an inch or so wide. You need to clean this glass to get rid of the lines. Some models have this glass just to the left of the large main glass, but in your case I beleive it is in the feeder itself.
Good Luck.

New toner but still have dark streaks


IF YOU ARE ONLY GETTING THE LINES WHEN YOU PUT THE DOCUMENTS INTO THE TOP FEEDER AND NOT FROM PRINTNG TO COPIER OR IF YOU PUT A COPY ON THE GLASS UNDER THE DOC FEEDER AND NO LINES APEAR CHECK THE SMALL GLASS WINDOW UNDER THE DOC FEEDER THERE MAY BE SOME TIPEX OR INK RUBBED OFF AND LEFT ON THE GLASS THERE.. THISD MIGHT BE CAUSING THE STREAKS YOU CAN CHECK THIS BY PUTTING THE PAGE IN THE DOC FEEDER AND DOING A COPY AND THEN PUT IT ON THE GLASS PLATE UNDER THE LID AND DO A COPY OR IF HOOKED UP TO COMPUTER DO A PRINT JOB.. IN NO STEAK APPEARS YOU CAN BE SURE ITS ON THE THIN SCANNER GLASS.. GOOD LUCK ...a

Big streaks on copies from Sharp SF-7800 copier, not fax machine.


You probably have some build up on the glass, which happens if you use the auto feeder most often. Alcohol type cleaner will remove with a very softcloth. One small dot will look like a long streak on a feeder, much like a streaked fax. The other issue is the photoreceptor belt has nicks or is dirty eaither way it needs to be replaced. Try the cleaning first and you may have to look hard for the small dots built up on the glass.

Dark streaks/lines (3) down center of copies


I don't know what model you're using, which would be very helpful, however, if you lift the Document feeder section where the originals are fed, there should be a narrow piece of glass, which is only used when the Document feeder is used. This must be completely clean -1 spec creates a solid line.

HP Officejet 6300 All-in-one machine makes black streaks


The problem is that that there a small piece of glass that the doc feeder use's to scan the orginal. You will have to clean the small glass it's about a half of a inch piece and is normally under the doc feeder unit. It will either be to the right side of the main copy board glass or it is under the doc feed unit where the paper goes down through the feeder. It is mostly some white out on the glass, just clean with a dam cloth with water or windex..... Good Luck
