Question about HP Photosmart 4180 All-in-One Printer
If the line only appears when the scanner is used & not when printing directly from the computer, you are correct in assuming the problem lies in the scanner assy. There should be mirrors attached to the scanner assy which will gather dust and cause copy/scan problems. Remove the glass & clean the mirrors with a DRY cotton cloth. Do not use any cleaning solution on the mirrors as they are sometimes treated & can be ruined if they come in contact with a cleaning solution. Use the dry cloth to wipe off the lens while you have it apart.Also clean both sides of the copy glass while you have it off. Reinstall glass & test.Cleaning the optics solves the problem most of the time. Good Luck!!

It is because coping is not the best way to get a perfect copy on the printer, Try scanning with computer using black and white photo it will come out much better if you are doing a pic. then use color picture.

Depending on what program you are using to scan, there are usually options to the left of the preview pane where you can choose black/white, greyscale, or color scanning. There should also be an option for selecting resolution. The default resolution is usually set to 400dpi but if an image you scan is large (5x7 or 8x10) you may want to change it to a higher resolution (600 works well).
