Clear Vertical lines

The documents come through the lines just fine, but there's a vertical line that nothing shows up in. It cuts through numbers and words that I very much need. Help!!!

Thank you!

    Well, I don't think I was clear enough and that's my fault! I was typing in a hurry!!!

    The Fax machine is in another branch office . When I recieve the faxes they send, there's the clear vertical line. This only happens when it is from their fax machine. I was wondering if it may have something to do with the scanner in the machine, and if there's a way we could clean it.

    I couldn't find anything on the Panasonic website... uuugh

In a pinch, you can take out the toner cartridge and shake it side to side (gently), then put it back in the machine. This will also help isolate if it is the toner cartridge or not. If it clears up after you do this, you will need to get a new toner cartridge.

It sounds like you need a new cartridge. I am not familliare with that product, but I would strongly suspect the drum or toner cartridge. They may be all one.
Often those cartridges are very low on ink and do not display a message to that effect

    Sounds like the sending fax has a problem with its scaner.

    May be as simple as some white out on the scanner glass.

    Or there are some segments of the scanner not picking up correctly, which would require a sevice call.

    Yeah, I had assumed the way you typed it the first time that you had problems with the faxes printing out on your machine.

How to fix Multi color Vertical Lines on a Vizio E470i-AO TV

Does the menu function display the same lines? What kind of cables are using ? (HDMI, Component vid, S-video, co-ax)
Were you as tenacious checking all cables/connections as you were the electronics? Lets rule out this all too often over-looked possibility.
Do you still get the lines with nothing connected to the TV? (no source connected)

When i unlock my nokia 5800 xpress music display showing vertical lines

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The screen of your phone is defective that's why it is showing those vertical lines.

The solution to this problem is screen replacement.

Have the screen replaced and those vertical lines will disappear forever.

I hope the above information is clear.

H line problem

I think you are describing 'no vertical deflection.' If all you have on the screen is a single horizontal line, the vertical deflection circuit (or IC) has died. Unless you have service documentation on hand, I can't give a part number to replace but this is typically not an expensive failure and if the set was OK before, it is worth having repaired.

Scanner inserts vertical line on some documents

Clean the glass with IsoPropyl Alcohol. Dont use any other solvent. A speck of dust stuck to the glass can give a continuous line in the output
