Horizontal line on printed page


When you use the flatbed the copy is perfect because the ccd sensor is under the glass cover and obviously is free form dust/ dirt.
On the other hand if you use the feeder the ccd sensor is located in between the roller assembly (not sure exactly for this model).
This means that the page is scanned by the ccd in the feeder, any dirt on the ccd will appear as a black line. I assume that you are feeding papers from the side and not from the top that is why you get a horizontal line.

A quick test to see if the ccd sensor is dirty is to feed the paper from the top side to the feeder. If you get a vertical line it is a proof that your ccd sensor needs to be cleaned.
The worst case is that the sensor in the feeder assembly has a tiny spot that is damaged and it is causing the black line.
So , first try the test, then open the feeder assembly, locate the ccd and clean it. Hope that this helps.

I get a black line when scanning, ( not when printing)how do i fix it


This is commonly caused by a mark on the scanner plate. If you place your document to scan on the scanner plate (Lift the lid and place it on the glass plate) and scan or copy the document does it come out clean? If you feed the document through the Auto Document Feeder doe the line appear?

If when place on the plate it is clean but fed through the ADF there is a line, then when you lift the lid on the scanner you will see a narrow glass plate at the end (Normally the left end) of the scanner plate. Give this glass a clean and your mark will go away.

If the scan or copy is lined when using the Flatbed scanner and the ADF then the problem will be in the scanner lamp which will be probably uneconomical to fix.

Plz tell me the flatbed scanner or pass through scanner is same type or different?


They are different.
A flatbed scanner works like the usual scanners you see - you put a document on a flat surface area and have it covered. Canon Lide is an example.
A pass through scanner works like the usual fax machine system wherein you will have the document to be scanned feed, and as it passes though the imaging part of the machine, it's digital copy is generated.
There are machines that works as both - Brother 185c and Samsung SCX4521F are examples of both flatbed and pass through scanners.

How do I fax I have put the documents in the tray now what do I d


There's two way to fax, 1. you can lay the documents to be sent/faxed on the flatbed (scanning sheet bed) and fax it after selecting the Fax option from the menu and dial the receiver's number. 2. If in case your documents is larger than the flatbed, you can put it on the sheetfed tray, and follow the same procedures to send the fax, it'll automatically pull the document as it copies the files to the temporary memory. But in this case, you'll need to resize the document size, suppose if your scanner bed supports A4 and you are faxing Legal Size paper, reduce the size of the paper to fit on A4, (approx 10% will do). Good luck.

Actually a very common problem. Try the following:
1. Power down then re-power up the scanner.
2. Try slightly moving scanner. Sometimes a small change works to fix.
3. Change one of your scan setting to flatbed scan (not adf). Do a test scan under this setting. This will usually kick start scanner unit to unlock.
4. Last resort, by does also work...give it a medium slap on the side, sometimes unjams the scanner light.
5. Super last resort, power down over night, it almost always works the next day. (could be that lock up is heat related to scan lamp, dont know but just a guess).
Excellent scanner, so worth the effort to try these fixes.
