Either dubree on the rollers or on the corona wires, wires clean with acalohol and q-tip, very carefully or you will brake the fire, look where the line is at and open the machine and locate where the issue is and remove and clean this area very carefully.

My canon pc940 suddenly prints copies with a dark stripe running down the middle of each page.


On your computer open the menu for your printer. Somewhere there you will find an icon that initiates a cleaning procedure. It usually takes just a few minutes and the printer wil go through the cleaning procedure on its own.

Black line running down the middle of the page when faxing or copying using automatic feed tray. If I lift lid and copy no line. Receiving fax not line?


Generally this problem is due to the the glass under the lid being dirty. Some combo units have 2 scanning areas, the large one you are using to copy ans a small one it runs the faxes through. I suggest you clean any and all glass you can find on the machine and give it another go.

Our canon laser fax 1060p receives faxes fine but send out a total black page (also the copy function is a total black page)


No power/failed contact image sensor. If under contract get replaced. It is poss. that a "standard white setting adj." could fix it, but doubtful with a black copy. -Carl

Black line going down the middle of the page


lift the auto feeder and clean the scanner glass that your pages scan across -it is dirty. You can make a copy afterward and this will tell you if you have solved the problem.

Canon B640 printing problem


The scanner lamp is not working. When making a copy, the lamp lights the source document, so if there is no light, the source document 'looks' black. Your machine will need to be serviced.

Paper has dark marks down middle


If you make a copy, does the copy have dark areas down the middle of the page? If so, remove the toner cartridge and gently roll it around to redistribute the toner inside, maybe even replace the toner cartridge if you've had it a long while. If you still see unevenness, you may need to have the machine looked at.

If the copies you make on your machine look fine, then I would suspect that the person sending you the fax has a dirty scanning element. Check with them to see if they can clean the scanning element and it should improve the fax quality.

If you open up the feeder door (Where your originals feed into) you will see a slit of glass going from side to side by the feed rollers. (you might need a flashlight to see it better)
On the slit glass there is probably some white out or something on the glass. All you have to do is clean the glass and this should take care of your problem.
To help you zero in on where the marks might be located, make a copy of a white piece of paper through the fax machine.
And then line up the copy that comes out with your black marks to the feeder.
This should get you in the general location.
If you have any other questions, feel free to post another question.
If I have helped you, please post a feedback and a rating.
Have a good day.
Good luck.

HORIZONTAL Lines on faxed/scanned pages.


I've seen this before. Since the printer portion is working fine that points to the scanner mechanism as the culprit. There are two things I have seen cause this. 1) If the line is a perfect rectangle all the way to the edge of the page then the light bar itself is dying and there isn't much you can do to save the unit. Send it in for warranty repair if you have the option. 2) If the line is more like a skid mark like you mentioned, then the paper that is being scanned is not pressing up fully against the light bar. Not enough light is bouncing off the page and the scanner can't read it well. This can also be caused by a roller not feeding correctly and then bunching up the paper a little bit. I would check the rollers for wear or something being off center. This can sometimes be caused if the machine has ran a high volume or thick paper. I would really think the cause would be one of these two since you are getting the marks at odd intervals, if the intervals were regular it could *possibly* be the drum but as I stated before, with the print function working right, I doubt it.
