Dirty printing job


Are they lines from one edge to the other in a straight line. Or is it faint reprint across the page?
Thin lines would most likely be a bad drum or cleaning blade.
If it is faint reprint it is the heat roller in the fuser.

Epson 9800 Prints black dotted vertical line


This is a workaround - I too need a definitive answer. Symptom: black dotted vertical line 1/2 to 3/4" from leftmost image edge. I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh

If the lines only appear when using the top feeder, then theres probably white-out or something on the thin strip (called a slit glass) of glass on the left of the large glass.

If it appears when you put a document on the large glass, then it is another problem.
