Be sure to turn off the power and unplug the power cord before cleaning the machine.


  • The power cannot be turned off while the machine is sending or receiving a fax, or when the received fax or unsent fax are stored in the machine's memory. Make sure if the machine completed sending or receiving all the faxes before disconnecting the power cord.



  • The machine cannot send or receive faxes when the power is turned off.



  • If you unplug the power cord, all the faxes stored in the machine's memory will be deleted.


    Print the necessary faxes or save them to the memory card/USB flash drive before unplugging the power cord.


  1. Open the Document Tray.

Black line just left of center when using document feeder to copy or scan. This doesn't happen when i put only one copy directly on glass.....


Hi jenni

The problem is in the scanner area. What you need to do is open the ADF (Automatic Document feeder) cover and inspect maybe something is stick to the glass and it appears always. Try to inspect carefully you may see some dirty if you find anything removable like piece of paper do remove it or you can clean it with a dump cloth specially the area where the scanner stops then you use document feeder. This will sure solve your problem.

Black line in paper


On what operation are you receiving the black line in your paper?

This problem usually appears when you try to scan or copy using your ADF (automatic document feeder).
To remove this black line in your paper, clean the ADF platen glass in your printer and do as well in the flatbed scanner glass. This ADF platen glass can be found right below where the documents in the ADF goes through. Its a glass about 1 inch in with and beside the flatbed scanner glass (the one where your documents is lay down for copying and scanning. Dried ink or paper residue sticked in the glass can cause this line in the paper. Clean it with a a clothe and spray some windex on it.

Good luck!

Black lines down on printed page


This is caused by dirt/debrise on the ADF (automatic document feeder) scanner glass. You need to open up the feeder where your originals are fed in and look for a strip of glass that runs from front to back. It is about an inch or so wide. You need to clean this glass to get rid of the lines. Some models have this glass just to the left of the large main glass, but in your case I beleive it is in the feeder itself.
Good Luck.

I have a toshiba e-studio 35. When copying through the feeder a line appears on the right side of the copy. Techs dont know how to fix it.


"Normally" that is a simple problem. If it copies clean when you lay your original on the glass......but when using the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) the copy has a black line then it is clearly something in the ADF scanner. Some machines use a strip of glass that is next to the large glass to scan originals when using the ADF. That strip of glass has to be clean top and bottom. Some models use a scanner in the actual ADF. Either way if it copies fine from the glass, the rest of the copier is eliminated from being the cause.
Is your machine under maintenence contract? Then I would keep calling them until they FIX it!

When the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to copy I


There are two scan modes when copies are made.When you make copies through ADF you originals go past small **** glass located to the left of the main exposure glass.Any small mark on this **** glass( correction fluid mark,ink mark,small scratch,dust particle and so on)will show as a line on your copy.So to get rid of these vertical lines on your copies you need to clean this small exposure glass.

ADF Reader, Black lines


Open ADF (automatic document feeder) cover and clean scan glass underneath. White out or post-it notes are notorious for leaving behind residue on glass when scanned. Any dot, spot or dirt will show up as a black line due to shadow effect.
