Re: Lines on the copies

It might be the drum unit, normally there are foreign objects int that unit. Need to take it apart and empty the waste toner.

A vertical black line appear on each paper when the document feeder is used to make copies; such vertical line does not appear on papers when copying on the glass surface. How do I resolve this...?

when you open the copier platen cover, left of the copy glass, there is small narrow glass, which is used when you make copies from ADF. Over that glass is plastic protective sheet. Remove it and clean, also clean the glass. Use glass detergent and after cleaning dry it!

Even the smallest dirt can cause lines!

Hope that helps!

When trying to make copies from the Cannon Imagerunner 3230 machine, we keep getting a black line on top of the copies. I tried cleaning the inside but it still appears. What could that be?

Drum Unit, Make sure the scan glass and platen glass is clean. Run copies from glass and document feeder to see if line appears on one or both. Both Drum unit or fusing Film. Will need a copier tech to remove parts for inspection.

Black lines coming out on top of copies

3 things it could be. Easy 1st! run a copy using auto doc feeder and then run off the glass. If you only have a line after document feeer then it is somting on the small scan glass. If it is on both most likly you need a new drum. Or your fixing film in your fusing unit is bad. Pulling the drum unit is not to bad but a tech might be needed.

3 thin black lines on copy

Do the black lines show up when you use the adf or if you make a copy from the copyboard glass. If the lines only show with the adf > there is a small **** of glass on the left side of the copy board glass > I would clean the slip glass with windex or a damp cloth..... Good Luck

Streaking on the IR C3100

Dear sir; Streak line, I have two things come out from my mind I need to clear; no. 1 do you make copy through ADF and got streaking line? if your answer is "yes" would you to make another copy direct from glass plateform, if copy coming out same problem that's means you need to replace drum cleaning blade, if copy coming out perfect then you need to clean the glass especial the narrow piece if they have, try it out and let me know, good luck!

1-en front door look inside and see if there are black rings around the shiny Drum cylinder, if yes replace drum blade (may have to replace drum also).
2- if lines only come when doing from ADF then lift top and clean the small strip of glass.

Cleaning Area

Try dusting the feeder out with compressed air. Then clean the glass with a flat razor blade to get any stubborn gunk that glass cleaner won't get. then spray a rag with streak free glass cleaner and rub the glass strip several times. good luck.

Black lines on scanned copies

Try this. Lift the lid to expose the top glass. To the left of the main glass panel, you will see a narrow glass strip. Clean this strip using a soft cloth or sponge moistened with a nonabrasive glass cleaner, then dry it off with a dry chaois cloth or cellulose sponge. A.
