Re: line on copies

Taking that glass apart is difficult end no necessary. Your line problem resides on the small, rectangular glass at left. Just place the copy with lines on the copying glass and the lines will indicate where the spots are on the small glass. It can be liquid paper or some sort of dirt of any kind. Just wipe it or scratch it ou with your fingernail.

Receiver end of faxes shows vertical black line. I changed drum and toner also cleaned glass scanner. I do not have a glass flatbed scanner only an automatic feeder.

The cause of this problem is usually a dirty scanning glass (there might be ink or white out on the glass). Check the glass really closely or the cause could be dirty optics or a bad CCD board. There are mirrors underneath the scanning glass. Dirty optics can cause lines when faxing or copying. If you can not access these mirrors, they would have to cleaned by a technician.

ADF Reader, Black lines

Open ADF (automatic document feeder) cover and clean scan glass underneath. White out or post-it notes are notorious for leaving behind residue on glass when scanned. Any dot, spot or dirt will show up as a black line due to shadow effect.

Vertical line on copies

A vertical line on laser copiers which are the same lenght apart on each indicates a dirty or defective toner cartridge or dirty or defective rollers. Take the cartridge out and wipe the rollers with a soft cloth. If the streaks continue then the rollers inside the cartridge or damaged. You will need to replace the toner cartridge. Let me know if you have any questions. Please rate this solution with 4 diamonds.

Lines of copies utilizing automatic feeder

look to the side of your big glass and you'll see a piece of glass about 1.5" wide. thats the galss that is used for scanning from the feeder. theres got to be something on that glass. possibly white-out or even a small speck of toner can cause that. look closely.

Sharp AR-207 copier puts .5 inch black line across entire bottom of copy

does the line only show up when making copies from the adf or both when you put it on the glass. if only when thru the adf the **** glass is dirty. that is the glass that is only about an inch wide. be carefull of the two pieces of tape that are on both the front and back of that glass they fall off easly.

Copies print with horizontal lines

thin lines? spaced about 1.5 inches apart could be toner left on the drum, take the cartridge out turn it over and retract the shutter, manually turn the drum using your thumbs on the edges of the drum, do you see thin lines on the drum? sometimes something sticky gets on the drum attracting toner and then it transfers to the paper during the copy process
