Xerox WorkCentre 4150, 3 vertical white lines in all feeder scans

Xerox WorkCentre 4150, document feeder scans documents, but leaves 3 vertical lines through any document copied, faxed or emailed. Printing from a computer and copying from the glass 1 page at a time work fine. Can't find anything blocking the scan where the 3 blank lines appear. Anyone seen this before?

    Thanks, but there is nothing on the thin scanner bar at the left of the machine (with the lid open) I wiped it down to be sure, but it's not a smudge, but as if something 2cm wide is completely blocking the scan in 3 locations. It will probably entail taking the scanner apart to see if anything has fallen apart inside the machine.

The problem is in the scanner, open it up and see if you can find any smudges, and clean any obstruction, any ink, liquid eraser residuals, can cause this part to appear as lines on your copied faxed image.
dont concentrate on the printer this is a scanner problem

Black vertical lines come and go for scans to computer and copies


I suspect the Document Feeder is not aligned properly and light is leaking in. You will need to have a technician in to check the alignment of the scanner to see if it needs to be readjusted. random black lines on edges usually indicate light leaking into the scan area.

Xerox WorkCentre 4150 Error code: 20-800/The machine cannot save the fax settings to memory. Xerox service is required to inspect the backup battery. Faxing is disabled, printing and all other machines...


One of 2 things.
EIther you have to enter the Fax User memory, Or the memory battery has failed and needs replaced.
Here is what the service documentation says.

(4150) During a power-off period, the machine has lost its user memory. Check that the backup battery, PL 1.10 Item 5 is holding its charge of about +3V. If necessary, install a new battery, PL 1.10 Item 5.

Document feeder


Most likely there is something in the path.
That feeder is easy to service. But first of all I would take a manila folder adn try and push it through the feeder paper path to clear it of any blockage.

Will not scan from glass but feeder will?


Using your scanner program such as PaperPort, you really have to pay attention on where the document/photo is located for scanning.


Steps
1. Click on Start, Programs, Paperport
2. Right above the Word "SCAN", you will have several options on;
a. Document or Photo
b. Flatbed or Feeder
3. Once step 2b has been selected, the M20i will scan your document per your instructions.

Note:#1
If you place your document on Flatbed but your selection on your screen says "Feeder" where do you think the scanner will look for your document? The answer is --> Feeder!!!

Note #2
Make sure that you click Accept,& DONE, other wise M20i will just sit and wait for your next command.

I hope this resolves the confusion between GLASS and FEEDER scanning.
