Re: Barrel on printer area leaves a vertical line

Not sure what you mean as barrel, Is the line present when receiving fax's/printing reports or just when doing a copy? Does it only do it when using doc feeder, if it is only 6months old then is under warranty

Officejet 9600: vertical lines (4) in center of page when copying using ADF. No lines when copying from glass. I tried the cleaning procedures on your trouble shooting pages. They did not help. How ca

When using the ADF, the scanner doesn't move. The long rectangular platen glass on the left side of the machine is used, not the large glass. I believe that if you clean the long, thin piece of glass on the left side of the platen, your lines will disappear.

Samsung CLX-6220-FX vertical lines when scanning and copying

The reason for such lines if they appear only on scans/copies from the automatic document feeder (adf), but not on regular scans and printouts is that there is dirt on the small glass stripe next to the scanner area that is used for scanning from the adf. Just clean that glass stripe and the lines should go away.

You have to clean the scanner.Open the dock feeder area,and make sure the scanner glass is clean sometimes the glass look clean but just a smaal dot on the glass can cause a line.Clean also the white area above the scanner.The white area above the scanner help for shading operation of the mchine.Make sure you clean with a sullotion that can remove ink but not damage plastic.

How can I get the fax and copy to print clearly?

Still sounds like a bad ink cartridge, try cleaning the bottom of the cartridge with a Kleenex and soapy water. Dry it off real good.

Look where the cartridge sits and clean the same way.

Ink jets are dead technology.

Problems with replacement cartridges

I'm a technician from Australia. Your supplier is right - I see so many problem related to refilled or non-genuine cartridges. They are bad for your machine and will cause premature failure.

Basically the printer market is price driven. The manufacture is trying to compete with other manufactures to sell the machine as cheap as possible driving down the out lay for a new machine. So where do they make there money if the new machine are so cheap? On the cartridges of course. It is not uncommon for a drum to be more expensive than a new printer. Another example there was a printer going for $77 (in Australia that I do warranty for) they pay us $66 to fix it under warranty plus any part it may need. How can the manufacturer make money?

The re-fillers that are also prevalent here supply an inferior product that doesn't work as well. They have no outlay for R & D they just refill a cartridge that may have wearing parts aswell. The manufactures just have spend a lot money to some research and prove the fact that is obvious in mind and they could have the re-fillers over a barrel.

I make no money from the sale of cartridges but they make my job of repairing so much harder. So from a technician in other country use genuine please.

Discliamer - this based only on my expirence of repairing machines. I have no hard evidence or proof.
