SOURCE: light grey vertical line

Hi there,

I believe there are 3 possible causes for this issue; toner drum, fuser or transfer roller - more than likely I would dismantle the printer and check for lines on the fuser. But just in case remove the toner and carefully release the flap to reveal the toner drum - if that is scored and the lines correspond to those on the print-out thats the cause.

Sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Try replacing it

If you open your "self feed" cover, you should be able to see the scan glass that originals pass over to copy. Clean that glass thoroughly. There is some dirt or whiteout (liquid paper) on it which causes the shadow or line on copies. Let me know.

SOURCE: Blank line down left side of outgoing fax or feeder copy

The most common cause of blank (void) lines on a scanned document is from whiteout on the glass where the page is scanned when using the document feeder.
If there is a clear mylar sheet on the bottom of the document feeder, the whiteout may be there instead.

If there was dirt or a dark smudge on the glass (or mylar), it would show up as a black line, but whiteout is white, and shows up as a void (blank) line.

Black verical line appear when documents are scanned from the feeder. How do I get rid of the vertical lines?


Clean the glass on the extreme left side of the printer. Lift up the feed tray and clean the vertical glass. You probably have some debris on it, such as white out or some other stuff.

I looked up the user guide at Dell's website and looked up printing cards.

  • The print side of the cards faces down.
  • The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.

  • Apparently you need to feed the card stock one page at a time into the printer on TOP of the paper exit try (The card stock will feed in from above the normal paper load try [remove paper from the paper tray] and once printed come back to the same spot.

    A Dark Vertical line appears 1 inch into the left side of scan


    Most Mustek scanners have a black inside cover on the lid, this can give a black line down the side of the job.
    ether cover the inside of the lid with white paper or place a bigger sheet on top of the sheet to be scanned!

    Paper feed catches on right side


    Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
    Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
    Hope this helps. Bud

    Can't Print on Card


    I had the same problem with my 3 year old HP Officejet 5610. Feeding heavy paper or white card stock would result in a paper jam. The card stock would start to feed, but then stop half way. The pinch rollers seemed to spin without advancing the paper, even if the paper was fed one sheet at a time.

    Solution: Clean the rubber pinch rollers with isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Partial disassembly/reassembly required.

    To access the rollers, remove the scanner plate:
    1. Disconnect power, USB, and phone cables.
    2. Open up the scanner sheet feeder by tilting it left.
    3. Unlatch the scanner scanner feeder so that it opens completely vertical. Latch is on front hinge only.
    4. Remove the 4 corner hex screws on the scanner plate. Remove the 2 hex screws on the sheet feeder. (I used a small flat blade screw driver in the hex heads)
    4. Lift the plate and sheet feeder away from printer box. Disconnect the 2 flat cable wires from the circuit board.
    5. Scrub rubber pinch rollers with alcohol on a swab. Dry thoughly.
    6. Reassemble. (NOTE: This is a good time to clean the underside of the glass plate and the scanner head)
