Issue with scanning documents to PDF however no issues with printing documents


from the sounds of this you have dirt or something on the scanning lenses. you need to check where the document you are scanning is loading it is carried across a lens that creates the image, if this is dirty you will get your symptoms coming out. if you lift the cover where the document is feed in you can clean this lens with some glass cleaner and a soft cloth. if all is printing ok you will waste ink by carrying out cleaning and alignment programs so save your ink and check the lenses for scanned doc. Hope this helps.Andy

Copier leaves a black line when printing through the top paper feeder. Ok coping from the flatbed


When copying from the feeder the page is fed across a fixed point at the head of the flatbed. Any dirt etc on the glass at this point can present as a dark line running vertically down the printed page. When copying from the flatbed, the scan head is moved down the page so any dirt on the glass will only appear as specs. Try cleaning the glass, especially at the head of the flatbed where the feeder is loading the page to be copied.

Equally spaced lines across page only on color copies


If not in the direction of the paper feed then in the direction of the scan head. Dirt on the scan head or bad scan head or scan head connection. Send it back.

When I copy using the auto feed, I get a line across my copies. The line can fade or be dark but has been present for a few months. Copies that are hand placed do not have the line. What can I do?


There is usually a little strip of glass to the left of the main glass bed where you would place paper by hand. This little strip is what the feeder passes the paper over to scan it while the scan head stays in place underneath it. Most likely there is some fuzz or dirt on this strip of glass or on the feeder where the paper passes.

When making copies using the ADF, vertical lines print out on the paper. Doesn't happen when paper put directly on the glass.


The ADF works by moving the paper past the scanhead, on glass works by moving scanhead past the paper.

When you are scanning with ADF, the scanhead is parked in a particular position, under the glass. Just at one extreme end. Open the unit to te point that you are able to clean the lint, debris, lollipop sticks from this area. That should be it, since works otherwise indicates a good scan head.
