When I copy papers on my Canon imageRunner 2800 there are 2black lines in the middle of the copied paper. How do i solve this problem?


Hello mike,
You may have a fairly easy problem to fix, and that's good thing ! If the lines only appear when you use the document feeder then we can handle this. Please place a document on the platen glass and make a copy. If the copy looks good then we need to clean your "scan" glass. The scan glass is the small glass located to the left of the large platen glass. It's about 3/4" by 14",and will only cause problems when you use the automatic doc feeder.If it gets dirty then thin lines will show up. If indeed this is the problem then I have a test u can use that will help you Take a plain piece of paper. Mentally divide it into 4 squares and then simply write the numbers 1,2,3,4 on each quadrant. At the top edge of your newly formed test document place an arrow pointing away from the body of the paper, and it needs to point "UP".. Now draw an arrow on the test document that points to the left "lead " edge. Put your newly constructed test target in the document feeder and make a copy of it. Now, you KNOW how you placed the test document, so lets look at the copy. If you have lines only thru the document feeder, then look at the copy you made and notice where the lines are. Ok, now you know where the lines show up on the copy, so lets take your "test" document and compare them side by side.Once you have made this comparison, and can see where the lines show up, take the ORIGINAL test document and place it IMAGE UP (1,2,3,4) on the glass. This will point out exactly where the dirt is. By looking at the copy that has lines, and where they show up on the page, you can use the test page that is laying face up on the glass and compare the 2. BOOM !! You can look towards the small scan glass and find the dirt that is causing the lines. With your copier, IF you place a document on the glass then the scanner moves to "scan" the document. But if you use the document feeder, the scanner stays in one spot and the motion of the document moving ACROSS the scanner and is scanned like a bar code. If there is dirt on the scan glass then a line occurs instead of a "blob" as you would see if you used the platen glass.I hope this all makes sense (I tend to ramble) and I hope it helps you. You of course could have far more complex problems. But your description of the problem sounded like my remedy/idea might be just what you need. Take care and good luck. if I helped you please let "fixya" know. SPINAL

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!!

B&w 6800 lots of horizontal black line areas. also, a vertical white strip about 3/4 inch wide about 3 inches from left side of paper


Hi!

the best thing is to make a copy using the glass and not the document feeder!If there is no lines on the copy simply lift up the cover and on the left side of the glass will be a thin strip of glass,Clean it with a dampened cloth and all line and marks should be gone1

Good Luck!

HP Laserjet M1319fMFP Copies have a line down the


if it only happens when COPYING AND NOT PRINTING there is a long thin glass that "reads" your originals inside the document feeder. It probably has whiteout on it. clean it with your fingernail. this glass is about 10 inches left to right and 3/4 inch long. Your manual should point this glass out to you.

Horizontal black and white lines are coming on copy


you don't mention whether the document you are copying also appears on the paper.If it does you could have 1 of 2 problems-
The drum cleaning system could be at fault or-
the fuser roller has picked up some **** easy test...... run copies and when the 1st copy edge appears switch OFF. This is a crash stop.Now examine the sheets in there.Is the stripe on the copy before the fuser (Heat) roller? If yes you could have a drum cleaning problem, usually fixed by changing the drum module.If no and the stripe appears after the heat roll, the problem is with the fuser system,dirty rolls etc. There are a number of other problems with stripes, but you have to start somewhere! If the document does NOT appear on the copy, forget all above, could be scan or ROS problem

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.

If the lines only appear when using the top feeder, then theres probably white-out or something on the thin strip (called a slit glass) of glass on the left of the large glass.

If it appears when you put a document on the large glass, then it is another problem.

Copies print with horizontal lines


thin lines? spaced about 1.5 inches apart could be toner left on the drum, take the cartridge out turn it over and retract the shutter, manually turn the drum using your thumbs on the edges of the drum, do you see thin lines on the drum? sometimes something sticky gets on the drum attracting toner and then it transfers to the paper during the copy process

Print Problem - vertical lines


If the problem only occurs when using the document feeder, the problem is not usually caused by the drum. When using the document feeder, try to notice where the scanner (the light assembly under your scan glass)stops just before the paper is being fed. Some multifunction machines have a small piece of glass that is separate from the large scan glass and the scanner assembly stays parked underneith it as the original is being fed over it. Most likely there is something on the glass where the scanner parks as originals are being fed thru the feeder. When putting your original on the large scan glass to copy, the mark on the glass will only show as a spot, but will show as a vertical line thru the whole copy when using the feeder.
