Pull the Top Loading Document Feeder up towards you from the back, to open and view the clear strip (perspex). I also had this problem, and fixed it by cleaning this strip. for future reference don't use whiteout on papers your going to fax/copy ;)

If your print jobs direct from the computer or faxes received come out ok then you probably have some dirt on the optical reader.

This is where the paper goes through the machine and is read by the printer and either reprinted or faxed. Pop open the top cover and you will see a clear strip (perspex) going from side to side, check this for any dirt or stick stuff and clean it off.

Everytime I fax something on my HP Laserjet 3050, the recipient receives the document with a line going down the middle of the page. How do I get rid of the line?


The way this ADF works is that there is a stationary scanner head and the machine moves the paper over it. The line down the pages is due to debris stuck between the page and the scanner. The ADF panel should open to show you the glass that needs cleaning. See the link below for full instruction. You should be able to test this by making a copy.

Printing black line down middle of page when coping


The fuser is located in the back of the printer. I think it's held in by to screws. It's about hte same size as the toner cartridge. Please visit these websites.

This is the fuser kit.

Printing black line when coping


You may need to replace the toner cartridge or the fuser assembly.

If you open the toner cartridge door and see a black line on the roller, you will need to replace the cartridge.

HP Laserjet 3330 printed dark page especially around the middle


Does this happen both when copying and printing?
For printing solution, try another toner cartridge.
If lines continue to appear when copying (primarily through the automatic feeder) then lift the auto feeder, and clean the glass -mainly the narrow piece on the left side.

please rate solution :)

HP 3050 vertical black lines during fax


OK, from the desciption i can assume several things here are some option.
If by receipt you are talking about the confirmation the unit prints the the problem is likely dirty glass.
You would also get the lines when you make a copy using the ADF.
Open the lid there are two areas of glass the thin strip is likely dirty and needs to be cleaned.

If by receipt you mean pages you receive from someone else, and not printed or copied on your machine, then their machine has the condition described above.

If everything has the lines then you have a toner or fuser problem:
This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
Hope this helps

I was getting a verticle black line and I had to clean the glass, the long white bar above the glass, and the white and black rollers before my problem was solved.
