Black line 6130


Are the scan settings correctly specified for the scanning application software used? Check if interface cable are correctly connected.When the error occurs on ADF front, clean the glass inside of Base Unit. When the error occurs on ADF back, clean the glass of the Upper Unit.Check if any dirt get on the white reference sheet?

Also, check the mirror of the OPT Unit dirty, clean the mirrors.
Check the connector and check any cables are damaged,if so, then replace the damaged cables.

If the above doesn't help, then the issue may be due Optical unit or Control PCA problem. hence, you may have to seek the help of Fujitsu scanner technicians for rectification.

Hope the above information is helpful.

Thanks & regards,

I have a big black line down the middle of my scans

If dirt sticks to the scan module, it will be scanned continuously and appear as a line in the output. Clean the glass with Isopropyl Alcohol. Dont use any other solvent.

Line down middle of scan

A line could be continuous scanning of dirt stuck to the glass or an error in the Sensor module. Please clean the glass thoroughly with Iso-propyl Alcohol. If the line has rough edges (varying thickness) it is definitely dirt on the glass.

When trying to scan, the scanner makes a loud clicking sound and the scanning carriage does not advance under the glass plate. It looks like the movement belt has come lose or detatched.

Hi There and Welcome to Fixya.

If the scanner's 'clicking' sound is louder than usual, plus there's issues with the scanning carriage, it is quite evident that this device requires repair/parts replacement. Please note that I'm highly recommending a certified or trained technician to do such job due to the intricacy of internal parts (not to mention the architecture) of the scanner.

For your convenience, I have included the support site for Lexmark for you to check on the repair options and more information surrounding the product :

I hope this helps and Thank you for using FixYa.

Black line scanning on digital sender

Yes. There will be an access cover / lid where the document goes in.

Open the cover, and you will see a thin glass, called the 'scan glass'.

Look in the middle of the glass. You will most likely find a glob of white-out, or ink on it.

Use rubbing alcohol to clean off the culprit.
