Make sure the lid is closed tightly ( stand something on top ) also the lines could be through the resolution of the scanner. go in to the scanner settings and turn the resolution up. dirt wont cause lines but smudges would look like shadows when copied

How do I get rid of the lines when I make copies. It dose not happen if I print a scan


If you are using the ADF ( automatic document feed ) for your copies, raise the scanner cover and clean the strip window to the left of the main platen. If you are using the platen for copies and getting lines where scans are clean - you have a physical issue and it should be checked out by a technician.

Lines on copies when scanning and copying on Canon 3480i optics cleaned, Help


Are the lines you are getting from banding? Are these lines there when you print a photo from the computer as well? If so then the printhead probably needs to be re-aligned.

Colored lines on a copy page


To fix the colored lines on a copy page do the below steps

  1. Disconnect the power cord, wait five seconds, and then plug it back in. This will reinitialize the unit and force the scanner to calibrate again.
  2. Examine the scanner glass and white scan backing. Clean the scanner glass and scan backing if they are not clean. To clean the scanner glass and scan backing, use a soft cloth towel slightly dampened with clean water.
  3. With the product turned on, open the scanner cover and check the bulb assembly. If the scanner bulb is not lit, the unit must be serviced.
  4. Verify that the alignment page is placed on the scanner glass or in the automatic document feeder (if equipped) correctly. Place the printed side down.
  5. Make a copy of the alignment page. The unit will make a copy even if the alignment message is displayed. Compare the copy to the original. If vertical lines appear in the copy, check to see if the scanner assembly requires cleaning. If cleaning the scanner assembly does not correct the problem, service the product.

Brand new fax when we send a fax it is received at the other end fuzzy or blurry. Tried a different phone line and still the same. Cleaned glass on scanner


Slight possibility that your sending in Photo Mode, most likely the machine was damaged during shipping and the CCD unit or scanner is out of alignment. Just make a copy....if it comes out blurry then it is the scanner. I would return it for another machine. If the copy comes out nice and clear then there is nothing wrong with the scanner.
