On Epson Artisan 800 the scanner leaves wide black stripes for the whole length of the paper. Printing From a file is OK.


If computer printing is fine (source) but scanner printing has problems, then of course, your problem is in the scanner. The only solution based on your info (which is good), are the lines in the same areas on other bad scanning prints? If so, your problem means that the scan-head has a connection problem leaving a 'black' send to the print buffer. This will require some technical repair replace or clean connection. Remember that this is a mechanical movement that not only records what it 'sees'e but at what X-Y location the read was 'seen'. It would be worth it to get an estimate from your local computer repair center give you an estimate.

Scan color pictures


Does this problem happen when scanning either from the scanner glass or the automatic document feeder? Does this problem happen when scanning either from the computer using the Lexmark software or scanning using the Scan button on the printer operator panel? This will help me understand what might be causing this problem.

I have a lexmark x2690 printer, i need to know if it has scanning capabilities and if so, how do i use the scanner


The Lexmark X2690 printer is capable of scanning. You can refer to the Lexmark 2690 User's Guide for a more comprehensive instructions on how to use the scan feature.
Note: For scanning documents for editing, you will need the Lexmark OCR scan software installed on your computer. The scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, feel free to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

I am scanning a photo. I have translucent lines running horizontal through the picture before i print it.


Documents scanned/copied from the document feeder pass over a thin glass area where scanning occurs. Clean this area if sent faxes, copies or scans have black or white vertical lines.
  1. Lift the document cover to expose the platen glass.

  2. Wipe the ADF scan area (C) with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water.

  3. Then wipe with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth making sure there are no residues left, especially on the platen glass.

  4. Close the document cover and make a copy of a text document to confirm the black line has disappeared.

  1. Check the connections between the two machines.
  2. Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.
  3. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.
  4. Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.
  5. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.
  6. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.
  7. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.
  8. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.StepAccept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

Scanning document leaves streak down right hand side


Even a single grain of dust or a single strand of hair on the scanning glass will cause the scan head to perceive ink/image where there is none. Deffinetly try cleaning the glass using a good window cleaner, and a cloth that is completely clean, or even a peice of newspaper. If the black line remains, I would suggest taking it into a service center to have the scan head itself cleaned.
