Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Vertical Line on copies made from automatic feeder

If I run the automatic feeder to make copies, I get a thin, vertical line, about 1-1/2 inches from the left margin of the paper, going all the way down the page.  I don't get this if I make copies using by placing them directly on the glass.  So, the problem must be in the scanner, but it is not with the scanner glass, which is clean and not scratched.  Can't figure out a way to get inside to the scanner to clean whatever must be causing this.

B&w 6800 lots of horizontal black line areas. also, a vertical white strip about 3/4 inch wide about 3 inches from left side of paper


Hi!

the best thing is to make a copy using the glass and not the document feeder!If there is no lines on the copy simply lift up the cover and on the left side of the glass will be a thin strip of glass,Clean it with a dampened cloth and all line and marks should be gone1

Good Luck!

Shows out of paper. Says paper jam. Open door . Clear carriage. Press ok. Cannot solve problem!!! 75 years old with 1st computer!


Out of paper
Cause: There is not enough paper in the input tray.
Solution: If the HP All-in-One is out of paper or there are only a few sheets
remaining, load more paper in the input tray. If there is paper in the input tray, remove
the paper, tap the stack of paper against a flat surface, and reload the paper into the
input tray. To continue your print job, press OK on the control panel of the HP All-in-
One.
Cause: The rear door is off the HP All-in-One.
Solution: If you removed the rear door to clear a paper jam, replace it.
rear door.
Paper can also jam in the automatic document feeder. Several common actions can
cause paper to jam the automatic document feeder:
• Placing too much paper in the document feeder tray. For information on the maximum
number of sheets allowed in the automatic document feeder, see Technical
information.
• Using paper that is too thick or too thin for the HP All-in-One.
• Trying to add paper to the document feeder tray while the HP All-in-One is feeding
pages.
To clear a paper jam from the rear door
1. Press in the tab on the left side of the rear door to release the door. Remove the door
by pulling it away from the HP All-in-One.
CAUTION: Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the HP All-in-One can
damage the print mechanism. Always access and clear paper jams through the
rear door.

Try clearing all paper from all carriages (Top,Rear, Front, etc. then reinserting proper amounts. Even the smallest piece of paper can cause a jam. Here is a user manual in case you don't have one you can get it here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00844812.pdf

This is a PDF and it is searchable and easy to navigate (Red lettering will take you to that section), so you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (if you don't already have it you can get free here:
http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Also, once you have done all you can turn the printer off for a moment then turn it back on.
Hope this helps. Good luck

Brother MFC-7820N Printer--vertical lines


You need to clean the scanner glass. Also known as the strip glass. It is a 1 inch wide strip of glass that runs from the front to the back. Your documents pass over this glass when they are scanned. Some of the wax crayon probably smeared off onto the glass and now when you scan the scanner sees these marks as stationary and thus records them as solid lines. Just look into the scanner section where your documents are fed in or depending on model, some are just to the left of the large original glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Installed new toner. Printer prints well, except approx 1 inch of vertical line doesn't print about 1/2 inch from right margin. Have gently shaken cartridge, run a cleaning paper, reiserted cartridge.


Assuming none of your print area margin settings have been changed, it sounds like you may have a defective drum. You can try carefully cleaning the corona wire, a hair thin wire, with a dry cotton swab. Do not touch the drum! The drum is an integral part of the toner cartridge. Return it to the store as defective.

Copying with page feed results in a vertical line on every page


There must be a strip of glass about one inch wide, next to
the large glass. There is the problem !
Clean that strip thourougly. When you use the feeder the pages
are scanned thru the small strip of glass.

Print Problem - vertical lines


If the problem only occurs when using the document feeder, the problem is not usually caused by the drum. When using the document feeder, try to notice where the scanner (the light assembly under your scan glass)stops just before the paper is being fed. Some multifunction machines have a small piece of glass that is separate from the large scan glass and the scanner assembly stays parked underneith it as the original is being fed over it. Most likely there is something on the glass where the scanner parks as originals are being fed thru the feeder. When putting your original on the large scan glass to copy, the mark on the glass will only show as a spot, but will show as a vertical line thru the whole copy when using the feeder.
