Why do I get a thick black line down side of page when copying, but not when I print

Not sure, but one possibility is that your paper you are copying is not all the way to the edge of the copier. If there is a crack along the edge where light from the room can get in it will show up black in those areas. You will see the same effect if you leave the top of the copier off and try to copy something. There could also be something wrong with the scanner arm preventing it from moving all the way to the edge of the window.

Black line scan

Most likely there is a physical obstruction to the light , it could be a small piece of paper , clip or any thing . If the scanner is completely clean , then the problem could be a damage to the scanner .

A black line on the scaned page

If light going around the paper, and if upper white paper don't cover it, this part will be black. Try to cover with some part of white paper around. If you have black line in the middle of scan, you have hardware problem with scanner (or old buggy driver). Try to update scanner driver.

Black row are comeing for scanning

its one of 2 possibilities

If you are getting black lines down the page, then you have a bad scanner assembly. It will be too costly to replace.

if you happen to be using a document feeder which i dont believe so, you might have some dirt in the scanner glass that needs cleaning.

thanks adi

Fax sent and copy has a 2 inches black belt on left

This is scanner defect. You could have a scrap of paper or something in the slot where your documents are fed in but I suspect that the scanner led array has a few bad led's and that is what is causing the black line. When your original is fed in there is a "light bar" that lights up to scan the original. This light bar is made up of a row of small led lights. I have seen these led's loose connection so that a few do not light up and this causes the problem you describe. They are usually repairable but the problem is you can replace this fax with a new one for under $100 and the repair most likely will cost more.

Lines through negative scans

Clean the glass surface with Iso propyl alcohol (Industrial grade is enough). Dont use any solvent. Just for immediate usage, you can use your aftershave and clean. Clen with a soft cloth.
