Getting a black vertical line on paper when using top feed, does not do it when placed on scanner


Hi,

1. Check the Automatic Document Feeder for any debris (paper, lint, etc.)
2. Open the top cover to reveal the platen glass.
3. Look to the far left, you'll see a thin strip of platen glass seperate from the bigger plate where you place flatbed scans on.
4. Check the thin strip of platen glass for any marks (correction fluid, marker ink, etc.)
5. Wipe glass with a damp cloth and some Window cleaning detergant.

Does the line still appear now when you scan using the ADF?

:)

Mp520 will not scan, document is on glass platen, press the black and white scan button but nothing happens. please hel. thanks


Did it come with any software? My printer wouldn't print when I tried using the scan button. If it came with software you could try scanning using that. If you dont have it it's probably available for download on canon's website
