Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Vertical lines through scanned images.

I get one yellow and one black vertical line through any scanned images. I don't get them on any printed or copied output - just the pdf's from scanned images. Where should I clean? I am assuming there is dust somewhere but cannot figure out how to get to it for cleaning.

Re: Vertical lines through scanned images.

You should clean the small glass under the top lid. Chances are there is some white out or ink or mark on the glass. Look carefully because usually it is just a small dot>

There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.

If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.

A long black line on scanned images is usually caused by a piece of trash on the scanning mechanism.
Look at the scanning arm (the thing that moves when you scan something) and then see if it has any trash on it. If it looks good then you may have a mechanical malfunction in that part.
Let us know hat you find.

Sounds like it could be bad cartridge or scanner. Try replacing cartridge first cause this is pretty easy to do and is alot cheaper.

Brother Scanner, scans the page but prints black and vertical

I called technical support for this issue previously with my brother mfc. It would only do this during color scanning. b&w scanning was just fine. The tech support put me through resetting the reference point of the scanner through a series of button pressing and closing and opening the paper feeder. I kept gettting the same lousy results. Then they determined that the scanner module needs replacing and I needed to take to the nearest service center.

Sounds like one or more of your printheads is worn out. They are designed to be user replaceable, and wear out after a certain amount of usage.

Black is obvious, but if the lines are purplish, your yellow head is bad. If they're greenish, your magenta head is bad. If they're reddish, your cyan head is bad.

Vertical lines are very unusual. Can you scan a printout and post it somewhere that we can look at it?

I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh
