Question about HP PSC 1410v Printer
Hello, My hp 1410v all in one printer leaves a thick black (about 1inch wide) line down the entire left margin of the page when i hit copy it works fine under all the other functions and didnt do this when i use to make copies but it started all of a sudden and i cant seem to find anything on the internet to help me figure it out does anyone out there know what i can do to fix it or what would cause it? any help would be gretly appreciated
If the line only appears when the scanner is used & not when printing directly from the computer, you are correct in assuming the problem lies in the scanner assy. There should be mirrors attached to the scanner assy which will gather dust and cause copy/scan problems. Remove the glass & clean the mirrors with a DRY cotton cloth. Do not use any cleaning solution on the mirrors as they are sometimes treated & can be ruined if they come in contact with a cleaning solution. Use the dry cloth to wipe off the lens while you have it apart.Also clean both sides of the copy glass while you have it off. Reinstall glass & test.Cleaning the optics solves the problem most of the time. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Black lines on the right side
The vertical black line at the right-hand side of the page when the printed document includes an image is a problem with all currently available HP Laserjet 1018, 1020 and 1022 drivers. While waiting for HP to fix the problem (they haven't even acknowledged it yet in their webpage) you can bypass it thus: a) Click on the 'Properties' button. b) Click on 'Finishing' and select 'FastRes1200' (this makes the line narrower). c) Click on 'Basics' and select 'Rotated', i.e. printing the page from bottom to top (this elliminates the line completely, in combination with 'b' above). This is a home-made solution I found after numerous trial-and-error attempts and having downloaded several drivers from the web. As a token respect to all of us who have paid money to buy these printers, I hope HP will soon recognize and solve the problem.

There are a couple of issues here.
1 You may, unlikely but may have a bad drum cartridge.
First thing to try though, is to print out a report.
Billing meter report, system settings, any report and see if the defect it still there on a print.
If it is, then you have either a drum or laser issue.
If it is not on the printed report, the problem is in the scanner. Most likely just a dirty mirror.
If it occurs on the printed reports, remove the toner and look into the left hand area of the machine. There is a slot about 6 inches wide and about 5/16th in height, see if there is anything in that path. That is the laser opening. If there is an obstruction there, then remove it. Take a cloth or q tip and clean that slot.
the laser itself may be dirty.
But here once again.
If you run a report and the defect IS on the image. You have a drum or laser problem,
If you run a report and the defect IS NOT on the page, then you have a scanner issue.

Sounds like the issue is with the scanner bulb. May not be moving across or warming up to full capacity.
Make sure the scanner is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. If problem is still there and you are in warranty you will need to replace the unit. If OOW then you should call and see if you can repair or upgrade the unit at a discounted price. If you want to speak to someone in English tell them you want mac support - they are in Canada.

When I Copy or Scan with my HP LaserJet 3050, a solid black line appears on the left margin of the page. . Can you suggest any solution to the problem. .

There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.
If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.

This Is good for all "all in one machines"
There is a dot on the 1inch glass, when making a copy or faxing or scanning it makes it form that part of the glass. It shows as a line because the paper is moving as it is being scanned. clean the glass w/ alcohool. Sometimes it is hard to see because the background is black and the dot may be a pen or pencil, but it's there.
try to take the copy and lign it up w the glass and look where the line is you might see it htere.

Cops is correct if you lift up ANY all in one machines, you will notice that there is a 1inch glass and then there is the main glass. When printing, scanning or faxing from the FEEDER it makes the copies from that 1inch glass, if there is a DOT on that part of the glass it comes out as a line. Why? because the paper is moving that dot then becomes a streak on the paper. To test if it is a dot try doing it from the main glass, there should be no lines ( the paper is not moving!!!!).
sometimes it is very hard to see anything on the 1inch glass, but it's there, the background is black and it may be a black ink or pencil dot. To try and localize it, take the copy with the line and align it with the 1inch glass, look carefully and clean with alcool.
