Clean the printer as recommended by Panasonic - if you don't have a manual, you should be able to download it.

Have more lines what I do


More lines when printing or photocopying?? What color lines? For lines when printing, clean charge rollers of the respective PCUs. If not, replace PCU drums. For lines that are appearing only when photocopying, check if the slit glass or flat bed glass have white out liquid correction ink markings on them. If yes, clean them. If not, clean scanner lens and mirrors of the scanner assembly.

Sharp Al1655cs copier black smudge down center of page about as wide as a pencil


Hi


Sounds like a fusing error . If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit).

Also clean the copier's paper rollers. Marks on copies will occasionally be the result of a dirty paper-rolling mechanism. Simply access these rollers (your photocopier will likely have a plaque or series of signs indicating the locations of these areas) and wipe them off.

Clean the copier bed's glass plate. One of the most common causes of blemishes in photocopies is a dirty glass plate. In some cases a permanent mark, such as a scratch, will be present on the plate, showing up in every copy as a dark line or spot. However, most problems attributed to the glass plate can be fixed by wiping the plate with a soft towel and common household glass cleaner.

Clear any excess toner that has spilled or overflowed in the toner cartridge chamber. Excess toner will almost always result in blemishes on your copies. The most effective means of cleanup is to remove the toner cartridge and set it aside, thoroughly cleaning up any spilled toner in the compartment before putting the cartridge back in place.

Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy. Most photocopiers will automatically indicate the need to replace an empty or low toner cartridge; while the toner is low, these models will permit continued copying. Consult your photocopier's instruction manual or key to warning lights and indicators for how to tell if the toner is low or empty.

The photocopying using the feeder leaves a black line


There is a separate scanner glass from the flatbed scanner glass.
Without a make/model I cannot tell you exactly how to access it, but once you have uncovered the document feed scanner glass area, the glass will need to be cleaned well, and then you will be able to scan from the feeder without the black line appearing.

Black lines on copies and on drum


There are a few things you can do to troubleshoot this problem.
  1. Be sure you are using new, clean paper
  2. Clean the copier's paper rollers, the marks may result from a dirty roller mechanism.
  3. Clean the copier bed's glass plate, smudges manifest themselves in the final copies.
  4. Clear any excess toner that has spilled in the toner cartridge chamber. Remove the cartridge, set it aside, then clean the compartment.
  5. Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy
If all else fails, try turning down the darkness of the copies in the settings, this can occasionally lead to lines and marks.

Lines rule across my print out paper at photocopying mode


Make sure you don't have a scratch on the glass of the scanner. If you have a mark, or scratch that matches the line ruled on your print, then there is your problem.

It;s also possible the scanner is jerking as it goes across the bed, which is causing the line. Is the line solid, dashed, bold, thin or just kinda there?
