Re: Canon makes thick black line when copying

Hi there, had a smiliar problem in the office this week all three printer having the same issue, black lines, all related to the drum kit, either being covered in ink, or in once case it had a break in the roller.

have a look at this pic, its the drum roller for your printer, amazon link

It is normally sits under the printer toner, take the toner out and you should have access to the unit the tonner fits into, if you look at it closly you should see the roller see if you find any telling signs of ink residue/or cracks on it. If you do its most likely the problem.

Hope it helps

Open the scanner lid and clean the narrow glass in the left-hand part of the scanning area. Look for remains from ink or corrector at the far end and wipe them out. The narrow glass should be entirely clear to make good copies from the feeder.
