Question about Panasonic Panaboard KX-B530 Graphic Tablet
I had the same problem on mine.I found it was due to the vertical height of an aluminum window plate, that is attached in front of the CCD optical sensor box, this box is located inside the back aluminum enclosure.
You have to unscrew the back cover and slide it out sideways, be carefull becasue the back cover is heavy and you don't want that falling on someones toes. Also there is some strong adhesive tape holding the cover to the enclosure so you'll have to pry on it a bit to pull the tape loose.
Once you have the cover off, you will be able to see the optical sensor box that is on the far side where the two guard bars (the flat aluminum bars that hold the back panel in place) the two guard bars meet on the one side Like a V.
Right where the bars meet and the V, you should be able to see the small optical box that has a small **** on the face of it and has two small screws on each side of this **** or "window". This is the Window for the optical sensor to pick up the image it is scanning which is a reflection on a mirror that is located on the opposite side of the enclosure. This mirror is about the size of a standard classroom meter stick and it reflects the scribbles of the panaboard surface as the canvas rolls around durring the scanning phase.
If you uncrew the two small screws that are on each side of the Optical sensor window, you will notice that this Window plate will be able to slide back and forth. Adjut this window plate hight and try printing another page and see how the image looks. If the Black bars are bigger then you have moved the plate the wrong way. Readjust and try again. Once you make the proper adjustments the black bars will no longer appear.
Well, this is what fixed mine, so hopefully this will help you.
