Question about HP Photosmart C6100 All-In-One Printer
I recently installed a brand new HP Photosmart C6100 All-In-One and it's printing okay, but with photocopies and scanned docments there is a problem.
A black vertical strip about 1.5cm wide runs down the document from top to bottom.
I've reinstalled twice but keep experiencing the same problem. I've also installed on another PC but problem is still there.
I'm thinking that it must be something to do with the copier/scanner sensor.
Please advise if there is anything I can do or should I contact the vendor support for assistance.
Sometimes this is caused simply by a bit of dirt or dust on a part of the scanner's lens. Since the page is fed through a horizontal "strip" style scanner, something blocking the light on a little piece of it will cause a long black strip all the way down the page.
Here's a guide showing you how to go about cleaning it:
Remember to use a soft, non abrasive lint free cloth! Like a glasses cleaning cloth or a camera/binoculars lens cloth. Last thing you want to do is scratch the glass :P.
