Its good you narrowed it down to 2nd side duplex. It has to be dirt on the glass of the scanner. Its possible that dust has gotten into the ccd or camera area. Take a flash light and see if you can see anything stuck which is black on the glass or if it has a scratch on the glass.

One sided scanning is fine, but two sided scans have a 1/4 inch black line vertically down the left side. Cleaning does nothing.


When you say one sided scans are OK, are you using the ADF (auto document feeder) or the flatbed? Are you using the ADF for the two sided scan? What parts have you cleaned thus far? A little more info please?

thanks

When scanning a document, such document stays with the previous document scanned and wont save as a different file. How can I separate what I'm scanning from what I scanned previously on my computer? How...


If you had selected 'multipage' option, the scanner will convert all pages into a single page. Switch off (uncheck) multipage option and you will get individual page outputs. Check in the software if your clicked unnecessary button for saving in the last file. Try 'Default' button if available and try again.

The scanner leaves a black streak on page only when in duplex mode. I have cleaned and cleaned and cleaned the parts the manual suggests and the streaks are still there.


Check if the glass is scratched. Try scanning in two different brightness levels. If the size/thickness of the streak varies and is also with 'steps' (when zoomed) then it is glass related. If the streak is same thickness and crisp at ends, it could be Scan module problem.

MP530 printing a black line on the bottom of page I print.


After reading the instructions for taking the printer apart from top to bottom (where the absorber is), we opted to follow someone else's advice for a quick fix. We turned the printer upside down and used a box cutter to cut a trap door in the center of the bottom, pulled out the absorber, replaced it with an equivalent sized rectangle of printer's cotton, and taped the door shut. It has been working fine for several months now.

Get paper path error when path is clear & clean.


There are two types of sensors, optical and mechanical. Sometimes the mechanical sensor get stuck and give a message to the scanner that paper still remains inside the scanner. Check if any of them is stuck, Blow air from a dsiatance so that any shreds of paper is foreced out.

Bell & Howell Copiscan Spectrum corner problems


It can be a nightmare to find out what is causing the dog ear page or folded page at the corner. Check your glass **** inside the scanner to make sure its seated in the scanner properly. The big one is the check the metal paper guides in the scanner paper path. If a guide is bend it will hook the paper and cause it to fold over.
