SOURCE: scanning document leaves streak down right hand side

Backu

Thanks for the tip...the problem is NOT a black line but a wide yellow line on the right side of the paper. It starts out about a quarter of the page in width and diminishes in size to about a half inch in width after many repeated scans.

The glass IS clean , and even when the glass had some smudges here and there, I never had a yellow stripe problem!

Scanner bulb is bright and even the entire length of bulb (no dark areas) so I don't think it is the bulb!

There is a tiny spec on the scanner glass. Cleaning it will make the line go away.

When I try to make copies using the ADF the screen tells me to remove documents and place on glass.Can you explain why. I have sveral pages


Automatic document feeder requires you to insert files into holder and let the machine scan through the pile providing you have not over ridden settings to manual.it sounds as if you have switched off adf to manual which would require you to place each document onto glass one at a time.see if you can switch it back to auto in the screen menu.

I have an Epson WF-2530 printer and when trying to scan a message comes up that says Remove paper from the ADF and below that message it says 1. Yes 2. No. I have removed the paper but the message...


Apparently the printer detects paper in the automatic document feeder input. Mostly detection is done using a tiny switch or light sensor. Remove all paper and look if there are any pieces of paper or paper dust in the paper feeds. You can also try to use a vacuum cleaner with a small tube or a compressed air duster to clean off any pieces of paper or dust.

How do I fix the automatic document feeder on my Epson wf-2530


The best way to sort this out is to First go to the Epson website (http://www.epson.com) and click on your location - many Epson printers have different model numbers and drivers depending on location - then download the drivers and other software for your product - the website will normally correctly identify your operating system so you get the right products to download. Before installing do this - go to Start - Control Panel - Printers then click on the printer icon and press the Delete key on your keyboard and thus delete the existing installation. Obviously you should have the printer switched off for this operation. Now run the setup for the new download and when advised onscreen, switch on the printer and when all finished, your printer and its facilities should all be properly restored. Sometimes problems such as yours can occur through another background utility interfering and rendering something inoperative or could have been a small electrical spike. In any event, do the reinstall using latest software as described.

Scanner leaving black streaks


There are two possible fixes.

The following is provided by courtesy of Lexmark:
Problem Vertical lines; Auto document feeder scan anomaly; ADF scanning problem; Scan issue; Scanner issue; Visible line; Streaks show on page; solid line down the page; Top to bottom line; Smudge runs down the page; Opaque line; Broken line; Bar all the way down the page Solution Overview

This article provides the self-diagnostic steps necessary to evaluate top-to-bottom streaks that appear when copying or scanning.

Important! This is seldom a scanner hardware failure.

The main reason for this anomaly is debris or marks on the scanner glass that is used for Auto document feeder (ADF) page scans.

Printed or Scanned Page Illustration

Who should consider this article?

Any user of an MFP or All-In-One printer experiencing the following symptoms:

  • -Vertical lines only when using the Autodocument Feeder (ADF).
  • -Observed with any type of scan job (e-mail, ftp, solutions, fax).
  • -However, normal expected output when the page is scanned from the scanner flatbed.



ADF scan behavior

Think of it this way:

  • -The page is pulled from the ADF.
  • -The moving page slides across an ADF-designated portion of glass.
  • -The image sensor, which is located under the glass, reads and interprets the moving page's contents.
  • -Contamination on this ADF glass is seen by the image sensor for the entire length of the page.
  • -The image processor interprets the image sensor's repeated capture of this contamination as a vertical solid line.
  • -Any ADF scan function now exhibits a vertical line.

Suggested Diagnosis and Fix




Step Action 1 Locate the portion of the glass designated for ADF scans.
HINT: The glass location differs by model. This area is often separate from the scanner flatbed. Please reference User's Guide for more information if you are having a difficult time locating this designated area.
2 Perform a visual inspection for any of the following recurring culprits:

  • -Clear adhesive tape
  • -Glue
  • -Ink pen
  • -Paper
  • -Marker
  • -White out
  • -Staples
  • -Environmental dust or dirt
HINT: Ink marks can be especially hard to see and almost translucent at first sight. However, the image sensor (CCD) registers them as a mark. 3 Use a clean, soft, moistened cloth to thoroughly clean and remove any marks or debris. 4 Inspect the underbelly or underside of the ADF for any marks or debris. 5 Perform another scan to see if cleaning the glass alleviated the issue. 6 Repeat the procedure if a vertical line still appears.
Remember! Printing and scanning from the scanner flatbed work fine.
7 This time, place an intentional mark on a blank sheet of paper and take note of its location. Now place that sheet of paper in the ADF and make a copy.
8 Evaluate the distance of the vertical line to the your mark. 9 Inspect that area of the glass for further debris or marks and clean as necessary.

How do I get rid of the line running down the scanned document?


Simple, clean the ADF glass that the paper passes over during a scan (not the flatbed glass itself, just the thin strip of glass at the head of the flatbed glass). A speck of dirt on the glass will appear as a line down the length of the paper.

I have the Epson GT2500 scanner. There is a black line down the middle of every page that I scan


There is a speck of dirt or some such on the ADF Scan glass not the flatbed iteself. As the paper travels over the glass the speck of dirt is being seen by the scanner making a "line" appear on the entire length of the scan.

How do I scan a bunch of originals from the tray and get 1 file for each page?


Loading originals to scan
Use these instructions to load originals into your device for scanning. For the best quality
scans, use the flatbed scanner. See Selecting media for the automatic document feeder
(ADF) for guidelines on choosing original documents for scanning.
Loading originals onto the flatbed scanner
1. Make sure that the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray is free of media.
2. Lift the flatbed scanner lid.
3. Place the original document face-down on the flatbed scanner with the top, left corner of
the document at the lower-right corner of the glass.
4. Gently close the lid.
5. The document is ready to be scanned.
CAUTION To prevent damaging the device, do not allow the scanner lid to fall onto the flatbed scanner
surface. Always close the scanner lid when the device is not in use.
Loading originals into the automatic document feeder (ADF)
input tray
Note The ADF capacity is up to 50 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) media (depending on the thickness of
the media), or fewer sheets if the stack fills the ADF.
The minimum size for media in the ADF is 127 by 127 mm (5 by 5 inches). For smaller sizes
use the flatbed scanner. The maximum size for media in the ADF is 215.9 by 381 mm (8.5 by
15 inches).
1. Make sure that the flatbed scanner contains no media.
2. Close the flatbed scanner cover and put the top end of the stack of originals into the ADF
input tray, with the media stack face-up and the first page to be scanned on top of the
stack.
3. Slide the stack into the ADF input tray until it does not move any farther.
If this helps you, let the Boss, FixYa.com Know...
