When I fax it copies a black line is on the page. And when I copy from the top part it copies a black line. How can I fix that?

are you getting black lined copies while you are trying to send a fax or black lined images are obtained at the receiving end. Is there any problems while copying from platen glass. if it's ok, then check if there is any thing on the stream reading glass (the small sized glass plate meant for ADF) & clean it.

We have a black line down the center of all copies...

If the problem only happens on copies or sent faxes then no it is not your drum. There is something on your scan glass. My guess is you are getting the line on your copies when you run the original through the document feeder. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on

Black copies being received

Your image scanner is bad. Try making a copy....if it comes out black but your incoming faxes are fine then your image scanner is bad. You can also print a report from the machine and it should come out fine.
The image scanner is the part that scans your originals before faxing them out or making a copy. There is a light bar that lights up when scanning. Either that light bar(l.e.d. array) has gone bad or the scanner itself is bad. If this is the case it is probably going to cost more to fix than the machine is worth. You could buy a new machine for what it would cost to fix.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
