There is something on the small slit glass. There should be 2 pieces of glass on the copier. One where you place your original, and the other is a small slit glass about a 1/2" width by 9" long. Check the small glass to see if there is anything like a spot of black INK or a dot of white out on there. There is something on the small piece of glass that is causing your line problem.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Error message with canon mx410 "cannot scan from adf"


I fixed this by changing the Copy Intensity from Auto to Manual
I had the same paper jam (caused by pressing Stop during a page going into the ADF), but I had pressed OK as instructed and the page was auto fed back out again. Then I couldnt copy from ADF after that.
I tried everything, and then started to retrace my steps of all the things I might have tinkered with to try and get the copying working in the first place, before the paper jam.
Then I remembered I had set the Copy Intensity from Manual to Auto (thinking Auto is always best). With hindsight, it now makes sense for it to be manual with the ADF as otherwise how would it load a page, use it to set auto density, and then reload it again for the actual copy to occur. This happens okay on the flatbed scanner as it can scan a little, work out the settings, and then scan for real.
Copy Intensity is reached on my Canon MX from the Menu button at the bottom left of the front panel. - Then press the right arrow twice to get to Color Intensity. - Hit OK. - Then right arrow from "Auto" to "Manual Adjust"- Then pick a setting or leave it as half-way between light and dark- Press OK
Now every time my ADF copying works a treat. Thats what I get for tinkering in things I didn't need to change in the first place. I was just trying to get a quick copy going from ADF to paper without saving a file up on the computer and then printing.

I always have a black line down the middle of the page when i scan. help


If there's a black line when scanning but not when printing, you need to clean the scan bed. Either the glass has something on it or check the paper path if you're using the ADF. A single ink spot either place will print a line down the whole length of your scan.

My feeder to scan puts a line down the entire document - the line doesn't appear when I scan from the deck of the printer. I've attempted to clean the rollers but the line still appears on my document?


You don't say what kind of printer you have.
So, I will generalize my answer.
The reason for the line using the ADF and no line with the flatbed is that the paper is moving when using the ADF. So, a piece of dirt, dust or whatever on the ADF glass will cause a line because the paper is moving over a mark on the glass. The copy made on the flat bed glass doesn't move, so no line.
Anyways, clean the thin piece of glass that should be to the left of the big flat bed glass. That will fix your problem

When making copies using the ADF, vertical lines print out on the paper. Doesn't happen when paper put directly on the glass.


The ADF works by moving the paper past the scanhead, on glass works by moving scanhead past the paper.

When you are scanning with ADF, the scanhead is parked in a particular position, under the glass. Just at one extreme end. Open the unit to te point that you are able to clean the lint, debris, lollipop sticks from this area. That should be it, since works otherwise indicates a good scan head.

Can't work out how to use the multiscan? I press scan and it comes up with multiscan and I put the first piece of paper in but don't seem to get asked for any more sheets and it therefore just scans one...


Anita,

Put the pages in the "multiscan" all at once, not just one sheet at a time. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) will feed one sheet of your document at a time untill all of the pages are scanned...
Thanks for using FixYa!

If it's scan and copy only and not when you send a job from the computer your solution is easy to remedy. Try going into the menu located on the printer to info menu. Scroll down to conguration page and click the check button. When the printer prints, if the line is not on the page you simply have ink or white-out on the scan glass for the ADF (auto doc feeder).

To clean the ADF glass, lift the top lid to expose the glass. There are two peices, 1 large full size and one strip peice. If your getting the line when using the auto feeder (without lifting top) pay close attention to the strip of glass. When a document is auto-fed it moves the original past the strip of glass. A dot (pen mark or white-out) will appear as a line on your final copy.

Clean well with windex or similar glass cleaner. PUT THE CLEANER ON THE RAG THEN THE RAG TO THE GLASS. Don't spray the glass as it's easy to get it into cracks where to don't want it to fall on an electronic part or board below the glass edges. While you at it, clean all the glass.

Test by making a copy of a "BLANK" sheet of paper with one small line to give you postion clues. First by putting it on the glass. Clean everywhere on the large glass that shows a mark on the page (except the one you purposely put there). The mark will help you locate where to clean. (example - 1" below and 2" over from your intentional mark) It also helps you identify top of page from bottom.

Once that is done do the same thing using the original in the ADF. Simply measure in from the edge of the page on the copy and find the corresponding spot on the small strip of glass.

IF YOU SHOULD BE GETTING THE LINE IN ALL FUNCTIONS, PRINT, COPY MANUALLY, AND COPY WITH ADF. Check the toner cartridge, most likely black for damage on the cartidge drum. The cartridge drum can be quickly viewed by flipping the shutter open (the part with the HP logo and part number printed on it). If there is a line, replace the cartridge.

Hope that helps you. If so hit it with a FIXYA!

Thanks,

ADF will only feed one sheet then stop


no,just try to clean the roller of the ADF at the same time the separator pad.make sure that you are using paper that is 24lb weight coz if you are using paper that is so thin if may cause also an issue that the ADF could not pick-up...if the issue is still occuring return/replaced the printer...

send feedback for further troubleshooting...
