Sounds like a bad drum cleaning blade inside of the cartridge.

When making copies, only a part of the document prints; the rest is solid black.


Solid black in a copy typically means that the scanner is partially blocked. Open the top, where you'd place a sheet to be copied, and examine the small strip that runs down the side (left, most likely). See if it's clear, or if something is covering part of it.
Most copiers don't use the full size scanning plate for copies, but use a strip that scans the paper as it moves across it. If something blocks part of it, you get the black area.

Black lines print on black and white printing


Sounds as if the drum needs to be replaced if it does this on copies and prints.
If it just happens on copy when using the document feeder then try cleaning the narrow piece of glass that is located just to the left of the large piece of glass.

My HP Pro 7780 has recently started making copies (through the feeder) with 2 large blank streaks down the middle of the page (lengthwise). I am worried that this is also happening when I send a fax as...


Does this happen when you print, or only when you copy? If you print out a configuration or user settings page, or print a page from the computer, is it also missing two vertical lines of print or is it only when you are copying?

If it happens when you print, you may need a cleaning, or you may need to replace the toner or drum cartridge. If it's an inkjet machine, there's a possibility there is some ink or grease on the encoder strip (a small belt-like plastic strip that goes through the print-head carriage).

If it only happens when you copy, test both the flatbed and the document feeder. If it happens on both then you may have a bad scanner. If it only happens when using the document feeder, you likely have some whiteout (or something) on the glass. When you make a copy in the flatbed, the scanner moves across your document. When you make a copy using the document feeder, the document moves across the scanner. In this case, if there is anything on the scanner glass (like whiteout) your copies will be missing a vertical line of print data (it could be white if there is whiteout on the glass, or it could be dark if something dark is on the scanner glass).

Usually you can lift the flatbed cover and look at the glass to see if anything is on it (usually at the left side of the scanner). Clean the glass, first with alcohol to remove the obstruction, and then with a little windex to remove anything the alcohol may have left behind.

Exposure problem


If internally generated prints are good, but copied documents are bad then your scanner needs cleaning. This can be found in the document feeder section where the light scans across the paper. If both copied and internally generated prints are bad, then chance are, your toner/drum catridge has run out.

Line when coping from document feeder


If you lift the document feeder, you will see a narrow piece of glass on the left side. Originals are scanned across this when the feeder is used, so a small speck of dirt becomes a line when copying. clean the glass, and it should be good to go.

Lines


I will give you all the reasons I can think of.
1, If the line is only there when running through a document feeder and not there off the glass. The small strip of glass directly under the document feeder is dirty.
2. The drum has a scratch on it, or the cleaning blade is not cleaning the drum properly. Would require that cartridge replacement.
3. The fuser roller may be work in the middle. You would notice some reprinting , or ghost copying if that were bad.
4. Less likely would be some piece of fuzz in the light path, or a small piece of paper or tape in the paper path smearing the ink across the page.
If your machine prints, see if the line is on a print, if its on a print and not on the copy then it is scanner related.
