Open the cover, and inspect the small rectangular glass area leftmost of the glass - there must be a spot there.

Scanning from feeder is different from scanning from glass, because it's the paper that moves, and the scanning bar remains stationary. Therefore, if there's any dirt directly over the scanning bar's "home" position, it will show as a line on the resulting document.

GETTING TWO STRAIGHT LINES ABOUT 2 INCHES IN ON BOTH SIDES FROM BORDER OF PAPER. ONLY HAPPENS WHEN FED FROM TOP OF AL-1631 COPIER. WHATS MY PROBLEM. THANKS BILL 520-294-2594 TUCSON AZ


Clean your scanner glass strip. Just lift up the automatic document feeder and look at the large glass. Next to it is a small strip of glass enclosed in a plastic frame. Clean this glass with a soft cloth and some glass cleaner. This will fix your streaks problem as this strip of glass is what is used when you make copies using the feeder. You can verify this by making a copy by laying your original on the large glass. This will probably come out clean with no lines. This will be your proof that the lines are coming from the strip glass.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Vertical lines on copied page


Run a copy on the glass if there are no lines then something is on the scan glass of the document feeder. Use some window cleaner and scrub the document feeder glass and test. Sometimes white out or ink will stick to the glass and the scanner reads the dot as a line.

Dear Sharp Al-2030 Experts: Paper Copies made from the cover-mounted auto-feed system are produced with a full copy-length thin double line separated by an approximately 1 13/16" wide distance. It is...


There is something on your scan glass. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on. Once the glass is clean your problem is solved!

Lined Copies


If the line is only when you feed the original from the top feeder (not when you place the paper on the glass)....clean the narrow glass (called the **** glass) under the feeder on the right hand side
If that is not it new drum and/or blade is called for

Sharp Al 1631 prints half a page


Sometimes the originals hesitate using the document feeder, which can cause the problem you are describing. Do you get the same rsults if you lay the original on the glass?

My Sharp Al-1642cs is leaving a black stripe on the paper when coping.


Does the line appear when you copy from the glass? Or is it Just the document feeder. If it is just throught the doc feeder then you have to clean the **** glass next to the main glass. It only takes a small dot to make a line. Hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Dark edges


It depends... never use a Reman cart in these machines... only use sharp...especially if the machine is under warranty.

Does this happen when,
Using the Doc Feeder
When making copies from the Glass
Or when you print from a computer (assuming you print from a PC)

If you print something and this happens then it is inside the machine
Probably toner or developer dumping...

Take a few pieces of large white paper and cover the entire glass surface... make a copy is the line there? If so see the answer above... if not then close the top and make a copy with no paper on the glass... is that black line there.. If so then your top needs adjustment...

One more test
If you make a copy using the doc feeder, this black line only occurs when making copies with the doc feed, clean the **** glass, and try again...
