The next step would be to try to scan an image to the computer to see if you get the same result as a copy. I suspect that the scanner assembly is having an issue, and this would be the easiest way to find out. Please advise if this does not solve your issue.

Horizontal line on printed page


When you use the flatbed the copy is perfect because the ccd sensor is under the glass cover and obviously is free form dust/ dirt.
On the other hand if you use the feeder the ccd sensor is located in between the roller assembly (not sure exactly for this model).
This means that the page is scanned by the ccd in the feeder, any dirt on the ccd will appear as a black line. I assume that you are feeding papers from the side and not from the top that is why you get a horizontal line.

A quick test to see if the ccd sensor is dirty is to feed the paper from the top side to the feeder. If you get a vertical line it is a proof that your ccd sensor needs to be cleaned.
The worst case is that the sensor in the feeder assembly has a tiny spot that is damaged and it is causing the black line.
So , first try the test, then open the feeder assembly, locate the ccd and clean it. Hope that this helps.

Hello - my Brother DCP 330C printer is printing horizontal faded lines on both color and Black and white copies. I have changed the toner in all areas but still no change. Could the problem be with the...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Copying with page feed results in a vertical line on every page


There must be a strip of glass about one inch wide, next to
the large glass. There is the problem !
Clean that strip thourougly. When you use the feeder the pages
are scanned thru the small strip of glass.

Printer problem


Does the line appear while copying or printing ?

To isolate the issue try to print a self test page :

1. Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.

2. Release both buttons. The self-test page prints.

If you see lines on the test page then the issue is with the cartridge or cartridge contacts. Clean the cartridge and cartridge contacts inside the printer.

rRemove both the cartridges. Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well), wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom. The contact area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy lubricant material from the gold contacts.
The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. Gently wipe the contacts, from the top to the bottom.
Reinsert the cartridge and print. If the issue issue persists replace cartridge(s).



If you do not see lines on the test page. Place the same test page on the scanner glass and make a color copy. If the lines are on the copied Image the issue is with the scanner glass.
clean the scanner glass :

Clean the glass and scanner backing
  1. Turn off the all-in-one.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the all-in-one.
  4. Raise the lid.
  5. Clean the glass with a soft dry cloth, or a sponge slightly moistened with non-abrasive glass cleaner or water. CAUTION: Do not use abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride on the glass; they can damage it. Do not place or spray liquid directly on the glass; the liquid might seep under the glass and damage the device.
  6. Dry the glass with a chamois, cellulose sponge or soft cotton cloth to prevent spotting.
  7. Clean the white scanner backing with a soft dry cloth or sponge slightly moistened with water, and allow it to dry.
Try a blank copy
  1. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  2. Plug the power cord into the all-in-one.
  3. Turn the power on.
  4. Close the lid; do not place any paper on the glass.
  5. Load paper in the paper tray.
  6. Do either of the following:
    • Press Start Copy Black to start a black-and-white copy job.
    • Press Start Copy Color to start a color copy job.
  7. If the output is a full/half-black page, or has vertical black lines, the product needs service or contact HP for in warranty replacement.
Thank you .

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.

Color Printing Produces Pink Horizontal Lines


Hello we have had customers with this problem and this model printer We came upon this type of problem also exhibited the same lining when you did a nozzle check independant of the computer (not attached to computer and just using the internal head check print) This was a cartridge problem and after replacing the cartridge the problem stopped.
