When you try to do a copy, the printer has to scan the document into its memory. There is a glass over the read head that is dirty, or if it is a flat bed scanner, you have a problem with the lamp or the read head. Somewhere there is some dirt, or if you use Correct-A-Type, a white stripe on the read area.

Black line on copy and fax functions


Clean the paper path for the scan/fax portion. The original goes in and as the document is "read" a spot of dirt is causing the black line down the page because it is picked up in the copy area.

Solid black line when scanning or copying from KODAK ESP-3


Get a damp soft cloth and clean the scanner glass. If that doesn't resolve the issue there is a chance the scanning unit itself is damaged.
Let me know.

HP Photosmart C3180 prints a solid black line left side of paper ONLY when you COPY. When you print from computer, it prints just fine. It is only from COPY mode that the solid black line appears.Already...


Unfortunately, your C3180 printer needs some repairs done to it or you . A section of the printing arm that does the printing is faulty. This happened to me and apart from replacing the arm (at considerable cost) I purchased a new printer at a much cheaper cost. You can use your faulty printer for printing from the computer but not for copying or scanning. MG
