Question about HP OfficeJet 6210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Line down middle of page

I get a dark line down the middle of the page when copying by running the original through automatically - NOT when I place the original on the surface and close the top manually. Any ideas?

    When I place the paper in the copy tray and it copies, all pages have a bold black line right down the middle of each page. Why? Can someone help me resolve this? I've changed cartridges numerous times, cleaned and aligned - nothing!

Hi,

I understand that you are receiving a dark line down the middle of the page when copying from automatic document feeder on top.

This issue may occur due to dirty ADF.

Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

Please remove the All-in-One Printer from the Power Surge Protector and plug it directly into a wall Power outlet, as the surge protector may not provide enough power to printer.

Please follow the instructions from the below article to get the issue resolved:

Here is the web document:

================

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00671260&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=421991&dlc=en&lang=en

================

Just copy and paste the entire link into the Internet browser's address bar and press enter.

Please perform the step given below to power cycle the unit after removing the print cartridges from the printer:

1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only
4. Repeat steps 2-3 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one to your computer.

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:
1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.
2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.
Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.

Note:
A semi-full reset will do the following:
The user settings to the factory defaults, Language and country settings on some models, Fax logs, Fax headers, Fax speed dial information.
Hope, the above information provided will be helpfull in resolving the issue.

Regards,
Lawrence

What causes a line down the middle of copied pages


There is something on your scan glass. My guess is you are getting the line on your copies when you run the original through the document feeder. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on.

When the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to copy I


There are two scan modes when copies are made.When you make copies through ADF you originals go past small **** glass located to the left of the main exposure glass.Any small mark on this **** glass( correction fluid mark,ink mark,small scratch,dust particle and so on)will show as a line on your copy.So to get rid of these vertical lines on your copies you need to clean this small exposure glass.

ADF has something on it causing a stripe on all copies


Lift the document feeder and clean the narrow glass, (next to the glass where you place your originals). Documents are scanned across this glass when automatic feeder is used, thus a small piece of dirt becomes a line down the page.

Dark balck line down middle when copying, but not when printing


If this happens only when you feed the original through the top feeder and not when you lay it on the glass, then you have a small bit of dirt at the scanning location--since the paper moves, rather than the scanning bar, the section of glass that is involved is very small and one little bit of dirt will make a line down the whole page. You need to lift the automatic document feeder mechanism and clean the glass strip under it--that's where your (unseen) dirt is. (Page 108 of the manual, if you have one.)
