You probably have some thing in the developer unit, if you take out the developer and check the bag roller and brush, if you slowly turn the dev unit you might see a void area that is being passed onto the drum.
If the developer has a large numbers of copies on it then dump the developer and replace the starter.
Make sure the developer get thoroughly cleaned especially behind the blade.

If the developer is not all that old, then lift the blade off and clean the backside of the blade, and the area or areas of the brush that have the void.

Hope this is of some help.

WHITE LINES ON FAXES SENT


You have white out or some other white substance blocking your scanner optics. I am assuming this is a thin blank line. What you need to do is make a copy of a document with your machine. You should see the very same blank line on your copy that your customer is seeing on their received fax. Now take this copy and place it in the document feeder the same way you placed the document when you made your copy. Now imagine this document going thru the feeder. The strip that is blank will "match up" with the white out or whatever is causing the blank line. You just need to open up the feeder section where the documents go in to be scanned and look for the thin strip of glass that runs from one side to the other. Using the copy you made with the blank line, use it to see exactly where the glass should have something stuck to it and clean it off with a soft clotch with a little glass cleaner on it. Go ahead and clean the while glass while you are in there. Once clean you can close it back up and run another copy to insure that all the lines are gone.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Unwanted verticle line on fax copies


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page. If this is the cause you will also find that faxes you send to other people will also have this line (although faxes you receive are not affected by this problem with your machine).

To fix the problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

2" black horizontal line appears on paper when I fax, print,


Check the wondow where the paper passes to be scanned. You will probably find some debris or white out stuck on the glass. That is usually the cause of vertical lines on sent faxes.

Top to Bottom gray line on left side of Copied Page


hello
does the grey line appear if you scan true the "upper" scanner.(set paper on top of printer and sscan it that way)? you should also clean the smal slim glass that is at the side of the big scanner glass.
also try to remove all cartridges and tilt them side to side several times. then put them back and test your printer.

Facing copying problem from scanning section


Although you didn't specify the scanner model, this solution should work.

If the scanner has a top feeder, open it.

You will see a thin strip of glass, either to the left, or right of the large scanner glass.

There is most likely a small spec of ink, white out, etc on it.

Clean the strip glass with rubbing alcohol and the line should go away.
