When copying from the feeder the page is fed across a fixed point at the head of the flatbed. Any dirt etc on the glass at this point can present as a dark line running vertically down the printed page. When copying from the flatbed, the scan head is moved down the page so any dirt on the glass will only appear as specs. Try cleaning the glass, especially at the head of the flatbed where the feeder is loading the page to be copied.
You omitted some details which might help diagnose the problem. For example, are you using the document feeder or the flatbed? Anyway, I'll take a guess here.
Check your paper size setting and make sure it matches the sheet you are scanning. (Letter, A4, Legal, etc.)
If this is not it, then try scanning from both flatbed and feeder and see if results vary. Note that when you use the feeder, scanning is done in a smaller window to the left of the flatbed, so make sure that is clean.
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...
