Re: black lines

Not sure what you have tried but if there are no lines when printing but there when scanning there is something on the scanner. Could be something as small a single dot of dirt and it will put a line down the whole page. Try cleaning the glass.

Re: black lines

Hi I have a similar problem but worse yet, my HP C4280 cannot print anything black. The black ink was working perfectly when we did the test print but it somehow would not print anything black when we print or copy documents. Any ideas?

How do i get rid of a black line that ahows up down the r side of scanned documents, there is no line on the originals

If you are using the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to scan, you may need to clean the scanner bar glass.
First test: See if the line appears when you scan on the flatbed. If so, it is probably a hardware failure.
If it appears only when using the ADF, you need to clean the ADF.
HP has a general diagnostic and cleaning procedure here:

How do I get rid of a vertical black line on my feeder-fed copies and scans?

when using a document feeder to feed originals thru your machine the originals are "scanned" by a thin glass. this glass can get dirty with whiteout or other things. Open up the document feeder and clean the glass with a cloth with a small bit of rubbing alcohol on it. Use a flashlight to look at this glass because tiny spots can cause lines on your copies. Good luck.

Solid black line down the document when scanning

are you using the autofeeder to feed your documents?
if yes, open the top cover and clean both glasses (big and small).
and take the drum out, move the blue panel to clean up your drum.
after that should be working fine.

Printer/Scanner Problems

Does the line show up on PRINTS FROM YOUR COMPUTER also, or only when SCANNING A DOCUMENT? If the line is only from scanned documents, the SCAN GLASS has something stuck on it. The SCAN GLASS is a GLASS **** located under the ORIGINAL FEEDER. It is NOT the plate of glass you place the original on . Look UNDER the original feeder for a scrap of paper stuck in the optical path of the GLASS ****, and remove the scrap, or CLEAN THE SCAN GLASS IF CORRECTION FLUID, INK, ETC ARE STUCK ON IT. If the line shows up on ALL prints, your CHARGE CLEANING SLIDER located in the IMAGING (DRUM) UNIT must be slid all the way to one end of the charger, OR IT WILL CAUSE A BLACK LINE ON ALL PRINTS. Otherwise, the IMAGING UNIT may need to be cleaned or replaced. Toner smudges on the drum would indicate need for cleaning or replacement.

Black lines through documents

Try cleaning the cartridges to see if that helps..... mine did the same thing and after I cleaned it, it worked like new.
