Black line left on copies from the document feeder
I have cleaned the heck outta my glass and the slit of glass, but I can not get this black line to quit printing on my copies. Every time we feed a piece of paper thru the doc feeder, a black line about 11/2 inch up from the bottom of the page is this line all the way across the page. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could check or clean???

Re: Black line left on copies from the document feeder
Ah, the beauty of digital manipulation :)
In the old days you would have to change the paper in the tray too...
I've been looking online for the glass, and can't locate it. They will charge you a bundle for a piece of glass anyway (I know Konica charges about $50 one).
As to the question of a sensor. If there's no wire on it, there's no sensor. Some manufacturers use a "coating" that goes to a ground wire for anti-static, etc. Most likely, yours doesn't require this.
Also, to prolong the life of the new glass (now don't tell ALL of my secrets) use armor-all, car wax, even pledge (the wood stuff) on a rag and buff the glass. Just a dab will do.

Does this happen when when you place a document on the big glass? when you use the doc feeder you are using the small slit glass clean the slit glass if the problem goes away when using the big glass or when you print, then you know the bottom part of the machine is doing ok and its the scanner section which is the big glass area and the slit glass. you may have to to look at the glass at different angles to see the mark.
if its just copies clean the small glass to the left of the large glass its called the slit glass and is usally about 12 inches long and 2 inches wide if it comes out on prints as well as copies its a drum or fuser check to see which is bad another way to test if its the slit glass make a copie from the large glass if no line its definatly the sit glass
when using the document feeder??? if so then place a document on the big glass and make a copy if the line goes away clean the small slit glass to the left of the big glass that glass is what the doc feeder uses
Check your flat bed and Document feeder scanning glass need to be clean, if any dot or dust in scanning glass of document feeder it will appear a line, check this points first 1- Check printouts from computer or FAX if it is clean problem in scanning section 2- Check using Copying a blank paper using only Flatbed if it prints without any line its problem from document feeder Scanning glass So solution is clean the Document feeder scanning glass using wet cloth, note careful about wet cloth switch off the machine and clean it
This is caused by dirt/debrise on the ADF (automatic document feeder) scanner glass. You need to open up the feeder where your originals are fed in and look for a strip of glass that runs from front to back. It is about an inch or so wide. You need to clean this glass to get rid of the lines. Some models have this glass just to the left of the large main glass, but in your case I beleive it is in the feeder itself.
