Probably there is piece of dust, or some dirt (usually a pencil mark) on the scanner glass, which is located under the front panel. Open the front panel and clean the glass with a soft cloth. If necessary, use some liquid cleaner, but put it on the cloth, not directly on the device.

    I have tried all cleaning methods mentioned to no avail - Could it be under the glass? And how would I go about doing that?

    Yes, it could be under the glass, too. Did you check the link from my previous post?

Hp laserjet 2010 prints black line down side when printing scans from paperport 11


I have no idea what "paperport 11" is.
That being said, normally a line down the page when copying or scanning is caused by dirt on the Automatic Document Feeder glass, Not the flatbed glass. It is a thin strip of glass to the left of the flatbed scanner glass. Clean it.

Black line is present when copying document; not


This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

3-INCH WIDE VERTICAL LINES RUND DOWN LEFT SIDE OF FAX MACHINE


Do your incoming faxes have the same marks?
If not you might find that the scanning part of your machine has a dirty mark on the glass or that the unit has become faulty.
Try and take a copy from the machine and print from a report or any print from memory.
If you have the black lines on both then i'd suggest getting a new drum unit, if u have it only on the copy I would have a look at your scanner glass and see if there is a dirty mark on it. if not maybe call out an engineer as the scanner unit maybe faulty.
Need anymore help msg me.

Black lines


Not sure what you have tried but if there are no lines when printing but there when scanning there is something on the scanner. Could be something as small a single dot of dirt and it will put a line down the whole page. Try cleaning the glass.
