Re: black line in auto feed
If you lift the scanner cover, you should see an area on the right end of the platen glass marked at the edge with arrows as Read Area. This is the area used when documents are scanned through the auto feed. Make sure that the glass is completely clean in this area, as any dirt will show up as a line on the copied image.

This is commonly caused by a mark on the scanner plate. If you place your document to scan on the scanner plate (Lift the lid and place it on the glass plate) and scan or copy the document does it come out clean? If you feed the document through the Auto Document Feeder doe the line appear?
If when place on the plate it is clean but fed through the ADF there is a line, then when you lift the lid on the scanner you will see a narrow glass plate at the end (Normally the left end) of the scanner plate. Give this glass a clean and your mark will go away.
If the scan or copy is lined when using the Flatbed scanner and the ADF then the problem will be in the scanner lamp which will be probably uneconomical to fix.
lift the top as if I were going to scan or copy something. I checked
the glass. On the far left is a separate glass area. This is what the
feeder uses to actually copy or scan a document. This had a smudge on
it. I cleaned the glass and it was fixed.
You need to clean the narrow glass strip on the left side of the machine when you open the cover. There is likely lint or something on this glass. This is where the auto document feeder pages are "imaged".
Does the line appear when you copy from the glass? Or is it Just the document feeder. If it is just throught the doc feeder then you have to clean the **** glass next to the main glass. It only takes a small dot to make a line. Hope this helps. Have a nice day.
