Straight thin line prints on copies from feeder


Hi,
When the paper is fed through Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) it is scanned before copy or fax. The scanner is fixed type and is located just below the ADF.
The lines are due to dirty scanner mirror. The printer/ scanner design is based Sheet-Fed Scanner. Open/Lift the Control Panel (scanner top )(by pulling it up from front - the area from where the paper to scan comes out). Look out for the horizontal mirror and use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently clean the scanner mirror, rollers etc. and enjoy clear scanning and copying! For example see the below picture: -

Inspect for any tron pieces of paper dirt etc.DONT USE PAPER, CHEMICALS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTH as it may damage the parts.

Also note that your machine can scan an image only 8.15 inches wide, regardless of how wide the paper is.

mirrors underneath the glass are dirty or "fogged up" . Remove the glass if possible and clean the mirrors carefully with q-tips.

Aficio MP1600 - Black Lines are appearing on all copies. One line appears on the ADF copy but muliple lines if using the scanner. I have tried to clean with a damp cloth everything possible, no good..What...


Try to print from the machine, such as function list or counter list. If no lines, then confirm the ADF scanning mirror dirty. If got lines, the probably came from fuser unit or drum unit.

Kodak i260 problem


A line appears if a dust particle on the scanner glass is scanned continuously. Clena the galss with Isopropyl alcohol, dont use any solvent. If the line persists even after this, there could be some sensor problem. If accidentally a paper with a staple pin is inserted, the pin can cause scratch and a line will appear.

Black line when scanning or copying


If the line only appears when the scanner is used & not when printing directly from the computer, you are correct in assuming the problem lies in the scanner assy. There should be mirrors attached to the scanner assy which will gather dust and cause copy/scan problems. Remove the glass & clean the mirrors with a DRY cotton cloth. Do not use any cleaning solution on the mirrors as they are sometimes treated & can be ruined if they come in contact with a cleaning solution. Use the dry cloth to wipe off the lens while you have it apart.Also clean both sides of the copy glass while you have it off. Reinstall glass & test.Cleaning the optics solves the problem most of the time. Good Luck!!

Epson 1640 SU problem, faint yellow line while scanning


Perhaps this: the scanner calibrates itself on a white strip above the place where the lamp is in rest. When there is a spot on that white strip, the scanner wil use the retreived information for the whole scan, resulting in a line on your scan.
