Please check the Scanner lamp at the time you scan. If its not glowing or glowing very low, there is your problem.
This is a hardware issue, either go for Hardware repair. Or go for Printer Replacement or Upgrade from HP.

When I use the scanner, an unsightly thin black line appears on the right side every page. How do I get rid of that black line? Please help! Thanks.


Clean the adf scanner glass (the slit of glass on the left side). All it takes is one spot to cause a vertical line through page

BLACK MARK ON THE COPIES OR SCANNED IMAGE


Clean the slit glass under the document feeder. Lift the feeder and find the thin piece of glass on either the left or right side and give it a good cleaning - you marks will likely go away.

Paper not feeding for epson nx400


Check the following:


  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right side, behind the tab, then press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it against the paper. Make sure the paper is not above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.

  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

  • If the paper doesn't eject fully, you may have set the wrong paper size. Press the c:\users\home\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Stop button, then open the scanner and remove the paper. Select the correct paper size when you reprint.

  • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin. Load new paper.

  • Make sure you use new, smooth, high-quality paper, that is not curled, creased, old, or too thin. Make sure to load it printable side up.

  • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

  • Make sure you load only up to the recommended number of sheets. If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

If the paper jams, do the following:

1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.

2. To eject the jammed paper, try turning the Epson Stylus NX400 off and then back on.

If that doesn't work and paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus NX400. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus NX400 back on.

EPSON WORKFORCE 840 AUTO FEED COPIES HAVE BLACK LINE DOWN THE SIDE


This was my exact problem. When scanning from the ADF, I had a vertical black line down every page. I cleaned the larger glass surface several times with no effect. Then, I discovered that ADF scans do NOT use the large glass area, but use the smaller, thinner glass area on the left side. It has a piece of thin plastic over the top of the glass. The scanner is fixed and the paper rolls through this area. So, if a speck of dirt is under the thin plastic piece or on top of the glass or on top of the thin plastic, it results in a black line down the whole page. Aha, so now I cleaned the thin plastic (both sides) and the top of the glass under the thin plastic - actually saw the black dot that was causing the problem and voila, problem solved.

Hp laserjet 2010 prints black line down side when printing scans from paperport 11


I have no idea what "paperport 11" is.
That being said, normally a line down the page when copying or scanning is caused by dirt on the Automatic Document Feeder glass, Not the flatbed glass. It is a thin strip of glass to the left of the flatbed scanner glass. Clean it.

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.

Vertical black lines


Go to the maintenance section of your printer's software or printer properties. There's a portion or section there where you can clean the heads of the ink cratridges. ^_^

A Dark Vertical line appears 1 inch into the left side of scan


Most Mustek scanners have a black inside cover on the lid, this can give a black line down the side of the job.
ether cover the inside of the lid with white paper or place a bigger sheet on top of the sheet to be scanned!
