Problem while copying


i am facing problem in copying, two black lines are appearing while copying. whereas it is printing fine while printing. The problem is only in copying.

Ping HP Laser Jet 3050 All-in-One Printer


I am having a similar problem with my Laserjet 3052. If I copy a page by not using the feeder, the copy is fine which leads me to believe that the glass is clear. Everytime I use the feeder, I get the lines. I put in a new cartridge and that did not help.

Any suggestions? How do I clean the feeder.

Thank you.

Re: problem while copying

Clean the scanner glass. That small thin glass under the document feeder. If it looks clean try to scrape with a razor blade. the smallest speck of dirt will cause lines.

Re: problem while copying

O.K. guys,

the problem is with the smaller glass on the left.
Lift the top and look at the small glass on the left, is there a dot, whiteout, dirt etc... on there? that is what's making your lines. clean with alcohol or mild cleanser.

My copier machine is printing out black lines.

Hi, does stripes appears only on copies or also on printed images?

If only on copies that means that you have to clean the copy glass.

If on both, its probably drum unit that causes the problem. Usually the stripes are slim, and verry close to each other, like a sharp brush paint job.

How many copies do you have with these drum? check it on 123 button.

If the copie is on one side totally black and the toner isnt fixed on paper that means that you have to replace fixing film.

For service manual write me on

Hope that helped!

Failure to print from computer in colour

I have a similiar issue that just started happening recently - the printer shows FULL inks but the PC thinks it has empty inks. I tried the * #, 123 reset hardware failures, but that didnt help. Printer run self diagnostics says all is fine....

I am using USB connections - and this has been fine for years, until now. Maybe a microsoft patch issue?

HP Photosmart C3180 prints a solid black line left side of paper ONLY when you COPY. When you print from computer, it prints just fine. It is only from COPY mode that the solid black line appears.Already...

Unfortunately, your C3180 printer needs some repairs done to it or you . A section of the printing arm that does the printing is faulty. This happened to me and apart from replacing the arm (at considerable cost) I purchased a new printer at a much cheaper cost. You can use your faulty printer for printing from the computer but not for copying or scanning. MG

Vertical black line in scan document not in copies through document feeder

Lift the lid and to the left of the main glass is a smaller glass; that is what scans during the feeding process. Make sure that it is completely clean; even a speck of dust can cause a line to appear. I took a lens wipe and cleaned mine and my line was gone.

Black line on copy

Hi there,

Have you try to print with other tray also. Is it fine.

Your printer need cleaning of the roller, just open the cover and try to clean all the dust and ink.

Facing copying problem from scanning section

Although you didn't specify the scanner model, this solution should work.

If the scanner has a top feeder, open it.

You will see a thin strip of glass, either to the left, or right of the large scanner glass.

There is most likely a small spec of ink, white out, etc on it.

Clean the strip glass with rubbing alcohol and the line should go away.

Thick Black Line on my copies and faxes

Can't image it being anything but scan glass, if prints are fine, are you sure you cleaning scan glass(inside of where originals are fed)?

If so then scanner lamp faulty, but I've never come across it myself on this model.
