Two possibilities that I can see here:

  1. The surface of the scanner needs to be cleaned.
  2. There is a problem with the scanning head. In this case call your warranty on it, they may want to replace it.

Check to see if the glass part of your scanner is clean. Usually its dirty when you have that problem

when you are scanning do set the flat bed cover as flat as you can,?? because when you scan a document with the lid slightly open black lines or shadows might appear. also check the settings of your printer.

Black vertical line along left margin when using the adf to scan.


Hi,

Check both the Fuser Unit and the Cartridge for lines . In any of the rollers are found with a line that means it needs to be replaced.

Black line is present when copying document; not


This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

Always prints more to left than established margin


Check you Page Setup andmargin set. Sounds like the page isn't set up properly. When you typing a document, go to the FILE then PAGE SETUP. Margins and Paper Layout.
Hope this helps. Bud

When scanning color document, blue tone is present as background shade


Have long experince with PixEdit program using Kodaks. PixEdit usually comes around it after a firmware upgrade on the scanner. Not sure about this specific model but at least OK on other models of Kodak.

Scanning document leaves streak down right hand side


Even a single grain of dust or a single strand of hair on the scanning glass will cause the scan head to perceive ink/image where there is none. Deffinetly try cleaning the glass using a good window cleaner, and a cloth that is completely clean, or even a peice of newspaper. If the black line remains, I would suggest taking it into a service center to have the scan head itself cleaned.
