Question about Printers & Copiers
How do you get rid of this black line
This problem can be caused by a number of different issues. If it occurs when you copy, check the scanning glass to see if there is any dust/gunk on the scanner glass. Also if you machine has a document feeder than you need to check the **** glass that the paper feeds past.
If it occurs when you print than you probably need to clean your printer. Check your manual for exact details on how to clean your printer but in general it could be on a paper feed roller or it maybe something on the drum. If you let me know what printer this is happening on I can direct you to a manual if needed.

Lift the lid and to the left of the main glass is a smaller glass; that is what scans during the feeding process. Make sure that it is completely clean; even a speck of dust can cause a line to appear. I took a lens wipe and cleaned mine and my line was gone.

Clean the glass on the extreme left side of the printer. Lift up the feed tray and clean the vertical glass. You probably have some debris on it, such as white out or some other stuff.

If it is along the edge of the print, it may be the edge of the book page you are seeing. if it is going through the text of the page, your scan carriage is likely skipping. If you don't see this on copies of single sheets of paper laid on the glass, then the weight of the book may be deforming the glass enough to catch the scan carriage as it passes. If you see it on single copied sheets, there is probably something on one of the scan rails under the glass that the carriage is "hopping" over as it passes. You could try watching the scan carriage move while holding the lid open to see if the carriage "hops" once during a scan.
