Line on Scanned Documents

After a document is scanned, the finished product appears with a thin line from top to bottom. I have had the printer since Oct 2007, today is the first time I have had the problem. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

When scanning with the document feeder a line appears on the scan. This does NOT happen if I use the scanner bed. It's a Ricoh Aficio IS330DC. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!!!

    I have a line too, but only when an image is scanned. Printed material scans just fine.

There is a spot on the thin strip of glass that sits next to the large scanner glass. Because you are moving the paper when using the feeder, a spot appears as a line. Shining a flashlight on the glass can help you locate it. You can scrape it off with a finger nail or clean it with a damp cloth.

Glass may have a small scratch or need cleaning. We have 6 of these and cleaning/buffing glass usually fixes it

With our printer, we found that it was because we were scanning documents that had white-out on them. If you use white-out before scanning, clean the glass thoroughly after.

How do i get rid of a black line that ahows up down the r side of scanned documents, there is no line on the originals


If you are using the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to scan, you may need to clean the scanner bar glass.
First test: See if the line appears when you scan on the flatbed. If so, it is probably a hardware failure.
If it appears only when using the ADF, you need to clean the ADF.
HP has a general diagnostic and cleaning procedure here:

Ricoh MP 2500 copied documents have a line across top of page when fed into document feeder when document is scanned the line appears on the scanned version as well. line does not appear on...


Clean the scanner strip glass. This is the thinner strip of glass that runs from front to back right next to the large glass. This glass is only used when scanning/copying using the document feeder. The line you are seeing is because something has become stuck to the glass so when the documents are fed over the strip of glass, the scanner reads the stationary spot of debris as a solid line. Clean the glass very well using a cloth and some glass cleaner. I have seen something get under the glass as well but this is very rare. Rest assured tho that the line is being caused by something on this strip of glass.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Verticle lines appear on document when scanning through document feeder. No verticle lines on document when it is scanned face down on the glass. How do I clean the document feeder?


There is a thin strip of glass next to the main platen glass, where documents fed through the feeder are scanned. You most likely have Wite-Out or some sort of debris stuck to the glass. You can probably wipe this residue off, but if you need to clean that strip of glass, use alcohol and a lint-free rag.

HP Scanjet N6010 Once documents are scanned a line appears on the scanned copy


The lines on a scanned document are typicaly caused by dirt on the scanning glass. To clean it use the following steps.

1. Unplug unit.
2. Open the fron access door from the top.
3. Clean both top and bottom **** glass that run the width of the scanner.

The glass can be cleaned with a lint free cloth and a mild glass cleaner.

The documents are scanned but dont appear on later inspection, or if they do they are just a horizontal line across the middle


Try reinstalling the driver software. If the problem still persists, run scandisk or reinstall OS.

Line through middle of page when document scanned


Clean the ADF roller and the far left hand side of the glass, the small strip outside the 'main' panel.

Line on Scanned Documents


If you are using the document feeder, chances are something has gotten on the glass recently. Try cleaning the area of the scanner's glass that is to the left (underneath the document feeder) of the main glass.

Vertical lines in scanned documents


Scan glass has muck on it, needs to be perfectly clear, it is just in where you feed originals.
