Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Thin black lines (mp 530)

When we try to scan or copy we get two thin black lines in our printout. The lines run the full length of the page. One line starts about 4 inches from the left side of the paper and the other about 1 & 1/2 inch in from the right side of the paper.

    Had the same problem with my MP530 printer. Just pop the part that hold the clear plastic sheet covering the scanning surface (batch processing part). Clean both the glass and the plastic with some type of glass cleaner solution. should work fine(this did the job for me).

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!

Copies leaves lines when put through the feeder,but not on the glass .......have cleaned and sprayed air can everywhere I can think of The Hp Printer is HP 3055 All in One printer


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Black line is present when copying document; not


This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

A line appears down the length of the page on all copies, printing and scanning. How do I get rid of the line?


All you need to do is clean the top feeder which opens into two parts. make sure you clean the black rollers as well as the small strip of glass you will find when you open the second part of the top feeder . don't be afraid to pull open the top feeder it won't break

Black line down the middle of scanned documents.


Try leaving the cover open and run a test scan, once with a fresh sheet as the item to be scanned and then a second time without anything on the table.  You may see what is blocking the light source or possibly a defect in it.
Scanning is done left-right, left-right across the width of the page and the vertical stripe indicates that the blockage is present during each scanned line.
In servicing copiers and multifunction machines, I have found a number of curious contaminents, one of the most annoying was a moth, still alive, that would randomly sit on the lamp, causing some pages to come out OK, others not. 
If your copies and printouts are coming out fine, then only the scanner can be at fault.

I need to know if this is a sudden occurence or has it happened before. Is cartridge new or refilled or older, and did it print right until now. Also need to know if you have made any recent system changes and if you run anti virus and spyware.
