If you are using a fax machine, open top cover and clean roller with cotton cloth with some alcohol in it or take it to technician shop and have rollers replaced.

on scanners or all-in-one printers, this is a scanner head problem, take it for repair or buy new one (the cheapest).

I have a big black line down the middle of my scans


If dirt sticks to the scan module, it will be scanned continuously and appear as a line in the output. Clean the glass with Isopropyl Alcohol. Dont use any other solvent.

Line down middle of scan


A line could be continuous scanning of dirt stuck to the glass or an error in the Sensor module. Please clean the glass thoroughly with Iso-propyl Alcohol. If the line has rough edges (varying thickness) it is definitely dirt on the glass.

When I am photocopying and scanning documents I am noticing vertical lines on the print in the middle of the page which is ruining the copy, any ideas? Alos message intermittently coming up waste toner...


Most probably you are using the automating document feeder for the photocopy or scanning. If you can lift up the document feeder , there should be the mirror where you can put the original document for manual photocopy or scan. Clean the edges of the mirror with a printer cleaning liquid. There may be some foreign particle stuck there or it is just dirty from long use. Hope this helps.

I am getting a thick black lline on my scanned immages


You need to adjust the position center of the scan materials.. The scanner pulls sheets fronm the center of the feeder. Using a single sample page to scan.. You need to move the feed guides the same distance as your black line - either to left or right as appropiate.. (Which side is the mark?) to find the center w/out leaving black line edges. Keep adjusting it till you eliminate the black line. Foxed me good first time I saw it..

Black line through the middle of the document


The thick line is either because of dust sticking to the glass or a module problem. Try different brightness settings and scan white paper. If the thickness varies and also the sides of the black strip are jaggered (step like) then it is dust on Glass. use isopropyl alcohol to clean, dont use solvents. If the teickness is same for all levels of brightness and has a sharp edge always, it could be scan module problem.

Black line going down the middle of the page


lift the auto feeder and clean the scanner glass that your pages scan across -it is dirty. You can make a copy afterward and this will tell you if you have solved the problem.

Thick Black Line on my copies and faxes


Can't image it being anything but scan glass, if prints are fine, are you sure you cleaning scan glass(inside of where originals are fed)?

If so then scanner lamp faulty, but I've never come across it myself on this model.
