SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: HP 3050 Black Line

I was getting a verticle black line and I had to clean the glass, the long white bar above the glass, and the white and black rollers before my problem was solved.

clean the glass with soft cloth and smallest amount of water, rub hard to get off the small dots that cause the lines even if you can not see any

OfficeJet 6500 Pro crashes when scanning


Return to supplier for repair or preferably replacement. Better yet an entirely different machine. The entire Officejet Pro range is poorly made.

My HP 6500 Printer jammed and now everything it prints has a line running down the side. Each segment is about 1/2 inch long and runs down the whole page.


This type of line is cause by a scratch or smudge on the toner cartridge's image drum. You will need to replace the toner cartridge.

I also have the OfficeJet 6500 and had the same problem. The black text was printing using a mix of colored inks instead of the black ink, resulting in a grey, fuzzy text. I finally found a solution. In each application under Page Setup, there is an option called "Format for". Mine had been set to "Any Printer". I changed that to "Officejet 6500 E709n [830E4A]" and now it prints the black just fine. I have a Mac running 10.4.11. Hope this helps.

I always have a black line down the middle of the page when i scan. help


If there's a black line when scanning but not when printing, you need to clean the scan bed. Either the glass has something on it or check the paper path if you're using the ADF. A single ink spot either place will print a line down the whole length of your scan.

When I use the feeder either for scanning or copying, the page has a black vertical line . When I make normal copies or print outs it is fine, only the feeder makes the black line. Thank you


Under the Automatic Document Feeder is a small glass.
This glass becomes dirty, creating lines on the page.
open up the scanner cover and clean the glass

Scanned documents are very light


I have found that when scanning b/w documents, its helpful to start with a black and white copy, not a grayscale, pen written, or printed form a printer in grayscale mode copy, but a true black and white on the copier or fax copy. The scanner doesnt read shades of black so well and when scanning multiple page documents, my pixma tends to scan in lightly. I havent found a piece of software to do just this, batch darken what has been scanned (at least not for free). Copying before scanning is the work around. Hope this helps everyone who's had this problem. It also doesnt hurt to darken what your scanning down a notch when copying

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.

Scanner HP 6200


Not the scanner -unless you have allowed the page framing to slip- check that out More likely the printer- and an indicator that the waste ink tank is over full and needs servicing. Goto www.fixyourownprinter- and log into your model to see how to do it.
