I get a thick vertical black line/margin down the entire page when i scan on my SX115

Please make sure the scanner flatbed is clean.
You can also try to copy and see if it happens on copying.
If it does, then your printer needs servicing.

Copying black but it is only printing in bands with white bands throughout.

Your print head is probably clogged. You need to go to "start", then "settings", then click on "printers and faxes". Right click on your printer, then click on "properties". A window will appear with several tabs. Go to the last tab named "maintenance". You have several options, but the one you need is "deep cleaning". Click on that and follow the instructions. You might have to repeat the process several times in order to get a satisfying copy. I also have to warn you that cleaning the print head uses a lot of your ink, but it should solve the white bands issue.

Lighter bands across copy using Canon F 132500 copier

Open the flap to expose copy platen and press print you should get a flat even black

if you get the white bands do the following:

Clean the corona wires open the cover pull out the sliding charge wires and clean with q tio and acoho or a pencil erasure

If that does not work remove top glass and clean mirror and bottom of glass
