Line on Scanned Documents

After a document is scanned, the finished product appears with a thin line from top to bottom. I have had the printer since Oct 2007, today is the first time I have had the problem. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

If you are using the document feeder, chances are something has gotten on the glass recently. Try cleaning the area of the scanner's glass that is to the left (underneath the document feeder) of the main glass.

How do i get rid of a black line that ahows up down the r side of scanned documents, there is no line on the originals


If you are using the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to scan, you may need to clean the scanner bar glass.
First test: See if the line appears when you scan on the flatbed. If so, it is probably a hardware failure.
If it appears only when using the ADF, you need to clean the ADF.
HP has a general diagnostic and cleaning procedure here:

Ricoh MP 2500 copied documents have a line across top of page when fed into document feeder when document is scanned the line appears on the scanned version as well. line does not appear on...


Clean the scanner strip glass. This is the thinner strip of glass that runs from front to back right next to the large glass. This glass is only used when scanning/copying using the document feeder. The line you are seeing is because something has become stuck to the glass so when the documents are fed over the strip of glass, the scanner reads the stationary spot of debris as a solid line. Clean the glass very well using a cloth and some glass cleaner. I have seen something get under the glass as well but this is very rare. Rest assured tho that the line is being caused by something on this strip of glass.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

On a scanned document there is a line down the right hand side as if there is a mark on the paper. This is not the case and is only showing on the scanned document. How do I rectify this?


This line is being caused by something stuck to your scanner glass. It simply needs to be cleaned. The scanner glass is going to be located in 1 of 2 places. Most common is location is just to the left side of the large scanner glass. So lift up your document feeder and look at the large glass where you may sometimes place an original to be scanned or copied. Now look just to the left of that glass. Do you see a much thinner "strip" of glass? If so then clean this strip glass with a soft cloth and a bit of glass cleaner or water. If there is no strip glass located here then it will be located inside of the feeder area where you documents are fed in to be scanned. These feeder units usually just pop open. If your documents go in face up the the strip glass will be on the upper portion. More common is the face down feeding which means the glass will be on the bottom. Sometimes a flashlight is handy here. Just open up the feeder unit and look for a thin strip of glass that runs from the front towards the back. It is about 1 inch wide. Once you locate it just clean it as mentioned above. Close everything back up and give it a try.
Eccentially what is happening here is that something has gotten stuck to the glass and since when scanning, the documents are "dragged" past this glass, anything that is stuck or stationary on the glass is read as a solid line.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Verticle lines appear on document when scanning through document feeder. No verticle lines on document when it is scanned face down on the glass. How do I clean the document feeder?


There is a thin strip of glass next to the main platen glass, where documents fed through the feeder are scanned. You most likely have Wite-Out or some sort of debris stuck to the glass. You can probably wipe this residue off, but if you need to clean that strip of glass, use alcohol and a lint-free rag.

Why do I have a black line down the side of my scanned documents?


If you are using the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) there is likely debris in that section of the scanning glass. The ADF parks the scanner in place and moves the paper over it, if something is on the scanner it will show up as a line. Check the thin section of glass at whichever end of the scanning deck for dust and clean it with a dry towel. If this is happening with documents on the scanner bed the debris is likely in the scanner and will likely need professional servicing.

Line through middle of page when document scanned


Clean the ADF roller and the far left hand side of the glass, the small strip outside the 'main' panel.

Vertical lines in scanned documents


Scan glass has muck on it, needs to be perfectly clear, it is just in where you feed originals.
