    I have the same problem, the glass on my x5150 looks as if it has smoke film on the under side, but it has never been in a smoke environment. It also has dust film. I would like to clean it but it looks as though I'll just toss it out and buy a new all in one since it is cheaper than having a local tech clean it. I'll think hard before buying another lexmark though.

    I can't get a decent answer from Lexmark on this problem. They 'recommend' that I don't open it but offer no solution to the problem. And I can't seem to find a diagram/schematic on the unit to reverse engineer it open.

    Any idea how to open the unit up to clean it?

Sharp IR 2016 platine glass dirty


The cover plate is above the glass white surface of the scanner. If this is the same dirty stains will come out on copies.
The glass must be clean.
By feeding the original documents through the ADF, the scanner lamp is no longer the path to scan, the ADF is responsible for passing the original document over the scanner, while it remains still placed on the side under a thin glass is to a large glass side. This also must be clean, otherwise you will be black lines on each point or spot on the glass.
Good luck ...

Horizontal lines on photocopies made but no lines appear when document document is printed.


Hi there, As it sounds its a dirty scanning glass. Open the top of the scanner so that you can see the scanning glass.. If your standing in front of it you will see on the left hand side a strip of thinner glass.. Take a damp cloth (better cloth with spirits/surgical alcohol) and clean the both the small and the large scanning glass. These lines normally cause if the glass is dirty. Especially if your using the document Feeder. As a lot of time wet ink or typex or correction fluid gets stuck on glass which will cause these lines.
Hope it helps
Regards,

I have a lexmark x560n printer. It will print from computer perfectly but when I scan or copy something the right side of the copy has the ghost image while the left5 side is perfect? Whats up with this?


Something is blocking the scan light. Dirty glass or something like that. Check the scanner glass and the scanner lid.

Please rate, and write testimonial if you feel the need to, if this was helpful.
Good Luck

Use of Scanner


On this model there is a SCAN in black and white or color buttons but you need to have something on the glass to scan. Once it scans it prints!!!

Now lexmark software if installed comes with a program to scan with. you need to check under your prgrams folder under lexmark for the scanning software that was installed with the print driver.

If you open the lid and you do not see the white light chances are your scanner has and needs a bulb inside and at the point to install one of these you might want to concider a new printer.

Please be considerate and leave your feedback and comments and ratings before you leave, Thanks

Receiver end of faxes shows vertical black line. I changed drum and toner also cleaned glass scanner. I do not have a glass flatbed scanner only an automatic feeder.


The cause of this problem is usually a dirty scanning glass (there might be ink or white out on the glass). Check the glass really closely or the cause could be dirty optics or a bad CCD board. There are mirrors underneath the scanning glass. Dirty optics can cause lines when faxing or copying. If you can not access these mirrors, they would have to cleaned by a technician.

Vertical line appears on the faxed page sent to


This sounds like a dirty scanning glass in the adf feeder. clean the glass with a soft cloth. if this doesn't solve the problem, there might be dirty optics under the scanning glass.

HP Laserjet3030 steaks/lines in flatbed photo scans.


Are printed pages clean?
If so, clean the narrow strip of glass on the left side of the main scan glass.
If printed pages are dirty as well, then probably a defective toner cartridge -replace

*please rate me:)

Poor quality scan? Tips for cleaning this device


You can clean the scanner glass with warm water and a dust free cloth. Is the line always in the same spot in your scans? Could be something else other then dirty glass.
