Dark line when trying to make original copies.

If I copy documents off the internet the copies come out great, but when I copy without the internet the copies come out with very dark bold black lines. ex. if i want to make a copy of something just to have an extra copy, thats when all of these black lines appear. then you can't see all of the coied document

The type of printer you have reads the image you want to copy by passing the paper in front of a image reader (it is like a wand with a light-slit on a side).

If someone passed in front of this reader a paper with something like dirt on it (or typing corrector not dry enough) some of that could stick ON the light-slit, so that the section covered with it cannot read any more the image you want to copy at that point!

Try to make a copy and look from above or aside where that light-wand is located, then try to clean it with a clean hanky. It could involve some technikal skills, maybe you have to loose some screws to get to it.

If dirt stick on it after this, try with some alcohol (no solvent please!). After cleaning the reader, copies should come out ok, please let me know.

Rate the solution please! Thx

We were getting streaky lines, it also ask us to replace the durm which we did. Streaks have not gone away


Are you getting these lines when copying? Or Printing?
Or both. Are these dark lines or blank lines?
If it is just when copying, try making a copy by laying an original on the glass rather than using the feeder. If this copy comes out clean then you need to clean the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) scanner glass. Just open the section where the documents are fed into and you will see a strip of glass that runs from front to back, about an inch wide. Clean this with a soft cloth and a bit of glass cleaner.
If this works then great. If not then reply back with more details and I will help you further.

Dark streaks/lines (3) down center of copies


I don't know what model you're using, which would be very helpful, however, if you lift the Document feeder section where the originals are fed, there should be a narrow piece of glass, which is only used when the Document feeder is used. This must be completely clean -1 spec creates a solid line.

Dark lines on only document feeder copies, Sharp AL 1631copier


If you have the ADF installed then you should have 2 document glass, the ADF uses the small one to scan the original, if this glass is dirty even a small dot will become a long line on the copy result. Clean this glass.

Dell All in One Printer 962-dark vertical line on photo copies


If you are running your copies through the document feeder then see if the line goes away if you make a copy directly from the glass. If the line goes away then open up the doc feeder assy. by hinging it to the left. Underneath you will find that there is a thin strip of glass that the document passes over when it is scanned. Clean this strip of glass and this should correct your problem. If there is a smudge of dirt or small line, it will come out as a solid verticle line when scanned.
