The bulb should be ok. See if the scan assembly moves as it should (even in speed and hieght).

Equally spaced lines across page only on color copies


If not in the direction of the paper feed then in the direction of the scan head. Dirt on the scan head or bad scan head or scan head connection. Send it back.

Scanner gives poor quality scan...bulb?


I have one with the same problem. Look at the lamp. If it isn't really bright, that could be the cause. Mine is bright at one end and that is the side of the page that is good. I am not an expert so I could be wrong, but that is where to start if all else looks OK. Am looking for a cheap replacement lamp myself. But at the prices of all-in-ones, it's not worth spending much.

Coloring is off and there is a ghosting effect


You have a convergence problem.You can replace this module cheaper than it can be repaired.It is so easy to do and electronics skill level is not required.If you can unplug the TV and remove the rear cover,then you can do this repair yourself.1 screw and 5 connections(plug in) is all it takes.The part number you need to order is BP95-00142E convergence amp. I would google search it and find it at the lowest cost to you.Good luck and please rate my information.

DR-5010C scanner yellow line


First clean the glass thoroughly using IPA (Iso Propyl Alcohol) Dont use any solvents. If you are getting the same result even after this, there could be a module problem.

Scanning document leaves streak down right hand side


Even a single grain of dust or a single strand of hair on the scanning glass will cause the scan head to perceive ink/image where there is none. Deffinetly try cleaning the glass using a good window cleaner, and a cloth that is completely clean, or even a peice of newspaper. If the black line remains, I would suggest taking it into a service center to have the scan head itself cleaned.

Line down center of page.


Hi Sherrey, I think I can help! If you open the ADF cover where you insert your pages to make a copy. You will see a scanner glass about 1/2 inch wide and runs across the width of the printer. You can take a soft towel and some glass cleaner and clean the glass. There will probably be some white build up that looks like white out on the glass just make sure you clean it very well. I hope this helps!!!!
