When making copies, only a part of the document prints; the rest is solid black.


Solid black in a copy typically means that the scanner is partially blocked. Open the top, where you'd place a sheet to be copied, and examine the small strip that runs down the side (left, most likely). See if it's clear, or if something is covering part of it.
Most copiers don't use the full size scanning plate for copies, but use a strip that scans the paper as it moves across it. If something blocks part of it, you get the black area.

Getting black strip about 9/16"


it may be due to either malfunctioning of the scanner tube within the printer itself or whenever you copy a certain page the lid is not properly pace resulting to excess light on that side giving you black line when the copying is in process

Single narrow black vertical line about 1 3/4 inches from right side of copy. Line runs the entire length of the copy. Happens only during copying color or black and white.


Hello,

The line issue is caused by something on the image sensor. To get to it and clean it just pull the front up where you put the paper into it to scan. Inside you will find a glass strip, this is the image sensor. Use a paper towel dampened with window cleaner and gently scrubbing the glass strip, After cleaning the strip let it dry for a minute or teo before you close the cover and try a scan. It should be clear and should copy great again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

In copy mode I am getting a back strip along the left hand side of the copy. The strip also shows up in the preview. Strip used to be half inch thick and is now an inch thick.


Is any part of the image missing under this black strip, or is it just margin from the side of the document to the end of the glass?
If nothing's missing, then probably you set a larger original size in the settings somewhere.
Try a sheet of white paper the size of the glass, put on top of the (smaller) copied picture or document; when scanning it is not a big deal, you can always choose the area to be scanned, right?
If however part of the document is missing, this can mean that the photosensitive element is faulty and doesn't read a couple hundred pixels on that side and the device needs repair.

Black strip 1.5 inches wide on right side of page


first, take drum unit out and make sure the blueish-purple colored plastic tab on top of drum is all the way to the left side. if thats not the culprit, then you are most likely looking at a bad contact image sensor or CIS.

Black lines on copies when run thru fax feeder


There is a thin strip of glass that you will see when you lift the top feeder. There is most likely white-out on it.

When you use the top feeder, it doesn't use the large glass, it only 'rolls' the original document over this small strip of glass.
