Says paper jam after printing one page


Leslie, all printers, scanners have a battery at the back of the machine. Look at your instructions to see how to open it. Also, make sure what your are scanning is straight and not uneven when placing on the plate or doing it automatically. Hope this helps.

When i try to make a copy it comes out all black and when I try to scan something it is all black


Check the scanner bulb - it's suppose to light up when you copy or scan. Look inside the scan bed and as you copy or scan, it should light and move across the bed.

Ricoh aficio 1027 Printer leaves harsh black streaks on copy


There are three likely causes for your streaks:
1. If they only happen when you put originals in the document feeder to copy or scan, and if the lines stop about 1/8" from either edge of the page, the problem is dirt, correction fluid, or debris on the small glass just to the left of the large platen glass. Clean this strip of glass and your problem will go away. If you can see the Wite-Out or other dirt, just wipe it off with a dry rag... otherwise, clean the glass strip with alcohol.

2. If the marks are solid lines across the page, the problem is the photoconductor unit (PCU). This unit is a whole replaceable all-in-one unit -- replace the PCU and that will fix your problem.

3. If the marks are slightly uneven or if they feel raised, the problem is most likely a scratched or damaged hot roller, in the fusing unit. If this is the case, you'll need to have a service technician replace your hot roller to fix the problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I have installed scanner and disc but cannot find how to use it.I found the test box and that works but now how do I scan?thanks


Canon and other Scanners have both hardware and software buttons to scan documents and photographs.
Scanning with a computer is done with a destination in mind. So the buttons and the software are associated with destinations.
Typical destinations are File, email, Application, and print.
In a simple scan process for copy or print, the item is placed face down on the scanner, then the print button is pressed on the front of the scanner.
The software for the scanner pops up on the screen and the scanner moves the imaging light across the scanner under the glass, reading the item on the scanner. The software sends the image to the default printer and it prints a copy.

You will need to setup your preferences in the software so that a photograph is scanned properly and a newspaper article is scanned to come out clear black and white.
Documents are best saved as PDF files and photographs as TIFF files.
The software will have an expert mode where you can change all the settings and a beginner mode where you let the software decide.
Canon has a great document for your scanner. If it is not on the disk, here is the link. It is called CanoScan 4200F Scanning Guide. I think it will help you to use the scanner for any task.

Uneven black border showing up on scanned documents


Most scanners scan the whole "bed" not just the document lying on it. Where no part of the document covers the bed usually appears as black.

Normally when scanning you are offered and option whether to scan the whole document or a portion thereof. When previewed, a dotted line appears around the portion the scanner thinks you want, you have to re-arrange that box so that it lies just within the part or the document you require.

Should this not resolve the issue the menu options on
the left hand side of the Xerox web page should guide you to a resolution.

Paper has dark marks down middle


If you make a copy, does the copy have dark areas down the middle of the page? If so, remove the toner cartridge and gently roll it around to redistribute the toner inside, maybe even replace the toner cartridge if you've had it a long while. If you still see unevenness, you may need to have the machine looked at.

If the copies you make on your machine look fine, then I would suspect that the person sending you the fax has a dirty scanning element. Check with them to see if they can clean the scanning element and it should improve the fax quality.
