Sounds like part of your scanner is not functioning and reading black all the time. Probably best to return it for a replacement.

    Sorry, for double check, do you need to replace the scanner unit or just part of scanner

Canon IR 2870 copy with a thick black line in the middle of the page.


There are three possible sources of black lines on copies: the original, the scanning process and the printing process. As a general rule, if the line only appears on some documents, the source is the original. If the copier is also a printer but the lines only appear when copying, the source is the scanning. if the lines always appear, the source is a defect in printing. Since black lines can be intermittent, it is best to check all possible sources.

Faint lines on the original might be more obvious on copies. Adjust contrast and brightness settings to reduce the appearance of lines. Lines at the edges of copies can be due to an original being smaller than the copy. Set the copier to enlarge the original, so the edges of the original are outside the edges of the copy, to eliminate these lines. If the original has folds, creases or pasted-on sections, ensure the original is as flat as possible.
Clean the copier glass, using a glass cleaning product. All rollers and belts should also be cleaned, and trays vacuumed, to ensure dust is not carried onto the glass. Copiers with a document feeder move the original past a small area of the document glass. As the original moves, a single speck of dust in this area will cause a line on the copy, from top to bottom. When copying, always ensure the original is completely dry, including any correction fluid and pen markings. https://www.instantprintersupport.com/

Black line scan


Open the scanner lid and clean the narrow glass in the left-hand part of the scanning area. Look for remains from ink or corrector at the far end and wipe them out. The narrow glass should be entirely clear to make good copies from the feeder.

I get a thick vertical black line/margin down the entire page when i scan on my SX115


Please make sure the scanner flatbed is clean.
You can also try to copy and see if it happens on copying.
If it does, then your printer needs servicing.

Thick verticle line on copies and scans


Sounds like the issue is with the scanner bulb. May not be moving across or warming up to full capacity.

Make sure the scanner is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. If problem is still there and you are in warranty you will need to replace the unit. If OOW then you should call and see if you can repair or upgrade the unit at a discounted price. If you want to speak to someone in English tell them you want mac support - they are in Canada.

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.

HP PSC 1610 - multiple lines in scans and copies, prints OK


Try a sky scan (No paper on glass and lid up) watch the scanner to see if it is smooth or a somepoint jumpy. If not smooth, you will have to open it up and 1 of two things, dirty and needs lubracation, silicone grease is best vasoline will work. OR 2 the drive belt is loose because the spring tensioner is broken or the belt is dammaged. Good luck
