Why is there a black vertical line in scans and copies?

Are you using a toner or a cartridge? There must be some ink leaked. If it is a toner, take it out and gently clean the excess ink and try.

A single black vertical line, 1mm wide, from almost top of paper to almost bottom appears on each and every page copied using the ADF

How you doin? Not so well from the sounds of your problem. Ok. Lets get started. When you lay a piece of plain paper on the glass, do you have the line?. When you scan plain paper and view on your monitor do you have the line? If the answer to "no" to the above, you have a VERY dirty adf feeder. Look at the top, and see if the white plate is dirty. If it is, clean with plain water or maybe a little window cleaner. A little ammonia won't kill it. Please let me know if this helped. I have the same model and love it. Have had it for 3 years and all I have to do is add ink. My wife will run hundreds of sheets of all kinds of goofy stuff from her computer and I find all the pages on the floor. She never pulls out the holding tray. Please look at those things I suggested. Let me know if it helped.

Epson workforce 635 scan/copy/print has blank spaces

I am going to take a different approach - it sounds like U might have to do a printhead cleaning - go into the menu on the printer and look for Ink or Maintenance and the use the arrow keys to get U to printhead cleaning and try that and see if it solves your problem

I have a epson 545 all in one printer and it says it has a paper jam but there is no paper in it


My wife was scanning a ton of old photographs, flipping the lid repeatedly, when the printer started acting flaky, and today it wouldn't run at all. It was the dreaded "ADF Jam" error. The paper feed motor ran at startup, but the ADF feed motor didn't (CLUE). Well, I took it apart, checked all the crevices for paper, then started disassembling. When I got down to the ADF, I started checking wires from the ADF into the control unit .... found one of the motor wires snapped. Soldered in a patch wire, and it works.

Most of the wires are reasonably sturdy, but the wires for the ADF feed motor are pretty thin and brittle. The red and black pair plug into a board where the data cable comes in; the panel slides off rearward after you take out one screw. Several plugs go up to the ADF.

Line across document when scanning

Is this when you are using the ADF, as a bit of dust can cause a line. Clean the scanner glass.

This was my exact problem. When scanning from the ADF, I had a vertical black line down every page. I cleaned the larger glass surface several times with no effect. Then, I discovered that ADF scans do NOT use the large glass area, but use the smaller, thinner glass area on the left side. It has a piece of thin plastic over the top of the glass. The scanner is fixed and the paper rolls through this area. So, if a speck of dirt is under the thin plastic piece or on top of the glass or on top of the thin plastic, it results in a black line down the whole page. Aha, so now I cleaned the thin plastic (both sides) and the top of the glass under the thin plastic - actually saw the black dot that was causing the problem and voila, problem solved.

Epson CX11NF-Vertical line on output of adf... Vertical line appears only on output of adf scanned docs on Epson CX11NF printer.

There may be dust or dirt on the small glass strip. Lift the scanner unit so you can see the scanner glass. To the left you will see a small glass strip. That is the area that you will need to clean. Make sure it is spotless as any stuck on dirt will cause the problem you are having.
