When I send a fax there is a white line down the center of the page. It does not do it when I make copies, How can I clean it or correct the problem.


Are you sure that there is no lines when you make copies?Because the scaner is used when you send faxes and when you copie, if sensor is bad or dirty lines would be wissible.
Clean it very well, with strong detergent, but in small amounts.Scratch the stains from corctour or similar...

Black stripe running down left side of paper when


Open the top of the fax where your documents go in. There will be a thin **** of glass where the document is read. On the end that reads "dirty" is a smudge or some white-out that needs to be cleaned. You may have to clean it with some cloth wrapped on a flat tool. Do not scrap or scratch anything, just clean enough to get the dirt off. Then make a test copy.

I am getting a light duplication on my copies half


The duplication problem can be either the drum or the fuser. Most likely your drum needs to be replaced. If you can measure the distance between the first print and its duplicate I might be able to help more.

On sending a fax the receiver copy has a black


You must clean the glass strip that the origional passes over to be scanned. You may have White-Out or an Ink smuge on it. Another way to determine if it is your FAX is to put in an original and make a copy. If the line is on your copy than it is your scanner **** (glass).

Every Fax we send has stripes going down it making it hard for the receiver to read our faxes. It doesn't happen when we receive fax, print or make copies.


You say it makes copies without the stripes. Do you use the automatic document feeder (ADF) when you make copies, or open the top and lay the paper on the platen? If you get stripes when using the ADF, the ADF scanner area needs to be cleaned. It's the smaller glass area to the left of the main platen glass. Use a damp cloth and remove any dirt or debris.

2 inch vertical solid band on right side when making a copy


There is probably dirt or ink on the scanner glass, this would affect both copying and sending faxes.

Here is a link to the manual and a description on page 74 showing how to clean the glass.

MP830 prints a black stripe down the back of the paper


the waste ink pads are full ..when the black line appears it is an indicator that the waste ink pads are full it is usualy because the printer has reached its life expectancy the solution is either buy a new printer or pay a tech about 170 dollars to repair it

FAX received full of black stripes


If you are using upper tray to send the fax than kindly open the fax gently and clean the lens with some cotton and spirit and than try to send the fax you will get the best result. to open the fax unit gently refer the user manual or this open by lifting it up side and you can see the lens inside it so clean the same ok.

Line down center of page.


Hi Sherrey, I think I can help! If you open the ADF cover where you insert your pages to make a copy. You will see a scanner glass about 1/2 inch wide and runs across the width of the printer. You can take a soft towel and some glass cleaner and clean the glass. There will probably be some white build up that looks like white out on the glass just make sure you clean it very well. I hope this helps!!!!
