A new scanner assembly will cost you as much as a new printer.

Why does my HP Photosmart C6150 All-in-One only prints/scans full black page


Open the scanner cover and check on you to copy double-check scanner moves when the light comes from the scanner and see if it sees the glass as if it would be messy to be opened and cleaned

Black line on copy


Lines on scanned or copied pages is usually caused by ink and trash on the scanner glass. Check the glass on your printer for something blocking the light on the scanner. Here is a link to an article about this issue and where to clean.

I have a wide black stripe when scanning pictures or making copies. Printing is fine.


Sounds like there is either something on the glass, under the glass or there is some malfunction with the scanner itself. You will probably need to take it in for repair.

Problem for HP Color LaserJet 8500 Printer Black line on the left side printed page while making copy on HP. This problem occurs only while loading the page on the top tray HP 8500 printer. No black line...


Hello,
This is usually caused by something on the scanner glass. Check for dried ink or correction fluid on the scanner glass. We have a short article about solving this type of issue posted here: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/lines-on-scanned-or-copies-pages/

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Copies leaves lines when put through the feeder,but not on the glass .......have cleaned and sprayed air can everywhere I can think of The Hp Printer is HP 3055 All in One printer


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Thick line when goes throught auto feeder


The automatic feeder passes the page over the scanner, the scanner does move, so even a small mark (often find it is correction fluid) will effect the whole page, check the glass on the left side of the scanner for any sort of mark

Vertical line appears in scans using the ADF, but not with copies


happened to me after i fed a page with not-too-hard whiteout on it. the feeder makes the page run through a different piece of glass and i just had to clean it.

Black lines


Not sure what you have tried but if there are no lines when printing but there when scanning there is something on the scanner. Could be something as small a single dot of dirt and it will put a line down the whole page. Try cleaning the glass.

Copying and scanning problem


The tech support at HP said its a hardware issue, especially if the following test results in a black page:

1) Open cover
2) Push scan button

if the bulb doesn't come on or the page is still black its a hardware issue.

Thick Black Line on my copies and faxes


Can't image it being anything but scan glass, if prints are fine, are you sure you cleaning scan glass(inside of where originals are fed)?

If so then scanner lamp faulty, but I've never come across it myself on this model.
