Yes, clean the glass with Isopropyl alcohol. DONT use solvents. For emergency you can use 'aftershave', but ensure you dont spill it on the rollers. S. Mohan

Officejet 9600: vertical lines (4) in center of page when copying using ADF. No lines when copying from glass. I tried the cleaning procedures on your trouble shooting pages. They did not help. How ca


John:
When using the ADF, the scanner doesn't move. The long rectangular platen glass on the left side of the machine is used, not the large glass. I believe that if you clean the long, thin piece of glass on the left side of the platen, your lines will disappear.

Steps how to clean scanner glass

1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Clean the outer case with a cloth dampened with a mild detergent and water.
3. If the document table glass gets dirty, clean it with a soft dry cloth. If the glass is stained with grease or some other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount of glass cleaner and a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off all remaining liquid.
4. Ensure that there is no dust on the glass of the document table. Dust can cause white spots in your scanned images.

*** CAUTION: Do not press on the document table glass too hard.

5. Be careful not to scratch or damage the document table glass, and do not use a hard or abrasive brush to clean it. A damaged glass surface can decrease the scanning quality.
6. Never use alcohol, paint thinner or corrosive solvent to clean the scanner. These chemicals can damage the scanner components as well as the case.
7. Be careful not to spill liquid into the scanner mechanism or electronic components. This could permanently damage the mechanism and circuitry.
8. Do not spray lubricants inside the scanner.
9. Never open the scanner case.

***NOTE: Wipe the inside of the document cover and the scanner's document table before scanning transparencies.

My scanned image has many thin coloured lines ruinning through it. It is not a dirty glass issue as the help page suggests


The mirrors in the optical system under the glass may be dirty or the lens near the CCD (charge coupled device) may also be dirty. This can happen over time. Dust gets in there and can cause this.

Vertical lines are from dust on the Glass. Use Isopropyl alcohol, no solvents pls. Try scanning in diff contrast levels and if the thichness varies, it is confirmed dust on glass, whereas any fault in the reading unit will be constant and also have sharp edges.

Canon MX850 dust under ADF glass


This is a newer unit, and Canon has a one year warranty, any chance this is under warranty? Canon did design this as a sealed unit, no parts available except the entire assembly, and no dis-assembly instructions.

How to sstop lines on the page


Lines are caused by a dirty (sometimes non-seeable) layer of dust on the scanner glass screen. Use newspaper and glass cleaner and gently clean all sides and around glass. be sure and get the little glass where the paper is placed to make copys (hidden but there).

Problem when scanning


If it is under warranty, contact HP.

Believe it or not, there probably is something in your scanner. Often times it is a very small piece of dust/fiber. If you are using the document feeder, the check the small piece of glass as the scanner bulb remains stationary and the paper is fed by. If you are laying the paper on the glass and scanning, then you will need to look at the scanner bulb itself. Run a scan with no paper and see if you see anything. If not, you can try to take it apart and clean the bulb (but do not touch the bulb with your bare fingers), with a light wipe of a tissue. If after cleaning, it either moves or goes away, then it is dust related. If it remains in the same position on the page, then there is a scanner bulb problem.
