Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

This problem only occurs when I scan or use photocopy mode. A black line is either produced electronically onto the scanned document file or, if a document is photocopied, is printed onto the photocopied page. The black line of 15mm width runs top to bottom on the left hand side of the longest side of the A4 copied document. The line is 30mm set in from the left hand edge of the document.

    I've checked the glass bed and the inside of the scanner area and no particles to speak of. The make and model is EPSON STYLUS PHOTO RX520. Attached is a scanned copy of gridlined paper which produces the same band when a photocopy is performed. Thank you for help so far. Let me know if image arrived ok?

Check the Scanner Lamp Surface and make sure nothing is stuck . If you see something on it, you need to disassemble the machine and clear the obstruction. The lamp faces upward on the glass bed, so to check the lamp, run a scanning and unplug the power cord while the lamp reaches the middle, otherwise it's not visible when you Turn off the machine as usual. It'll be hidden on the other end.

It's also possible that there's something wrong with the Flex cable which connects the Lamp to the motherboard.. or it could be the motherboard itself. First try with the Scanner Lamp and it'll be easier for you to troubleshoot.

Good luck.

You should service your unit and watch out for dirty particles especially on the scan/ photocopy glass. also, please indicate exact model of your printer for a followup if this doesn't help.

Bizhub C652 has horizontal lines.


its important to find out whether the \'lines\' are in scan direction/ or only through Radf or only from scan glass,

if the lines are only showing when documents are fed throught the Radf, then the problem lies with the document scan plate( left of the main glass platen (about 2" in width)) or with the scan plate blade cleaner

if the lines ONLY appear when copying from the Glass then the issue lies within the optics (probably nothing more than a clean will be needed)

another question would be to ask if the lines are solid (black line overprinting image) or if they are \'missing\' lines where the image has failed to copy, sometimes it can be hard to work out which side the fault lies,so try shaded greys as a copy original .

if the scan lines are appearing on both Radf and Glassplatten ,mode then the issue may be dirty optics/ccd sensor or it could e an indication of the ccd failing or image control pwb in error while interpreting the image file.

what to do

1) place a grey sheet of paper in the Radf and have the copier photocopy both sides of the original and print to single sided sheets ( so the printer turns the original over to complete the task)

observe the result.

2) have the copier photocopy directly from the platten glass- single sided.

observe the result.

ckeck to see if the error has appeared on both sets of prints ,

if the error has only appeared in the first set of prints then the issue may be a tiny DOT on the slit glass (left of platten) - a dot on this glass will indeed appear as a Line as the original is scanned across the glass.

hhope thhis helps

1. Click PDF on the Custom Scan with One-click tab or click PDF in the one-click mode screen to open the PDF dialog box.
* If you wish to convert the text in a document to editable text data, scan the item with the OCR. The precision of OCR is affected by the nature of the scanned original

3. Select a file type to save the scanned image.
Select PDF, PDF(Multiple Pages) or PDF(Add Page)

Click Set... to open a dialog box and specify the PDF compression type and other advanced settings for creating PDF files.
4. Place the first original on the scanner and click the [Scan] button at the right bottom corner of the PDF window.

5. When scanning is completed, place the next original and click the [Scan] button.

6. Repeat scanning by clicking the [Scan] button until you finish all the originals.

When I am photocopying and scanning documents I am noticing vertical lines on the print in the middle of the page which is ruining the copy, any ideas? Alos message intermittently coming up waste toner...


Most probably you are using the automating document feeder for the photocopy or scanning. If you can lift up the document feeder , there should be the mirror where you can put the original document for manual photocopy or scan. Clean the edges of the mirror with a printer cleaning liquid. There may be some foreign particle stuck there or it is just dirty from long use. Hope this helps.

I am scanning a photo. I have translucent lines running horizontal through the picture before i print it.


Documents scanned/copied from the document feeder pass over a thin glass area where scanning occurs. Clean this area if sent faxes, copies or scans have black or white vertical lines.
  1. Lift the document cover to expose the platen glass.

  2. Wipe the ADF scan area (C) with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water.

  3. Then wipe with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth making sure there are no residues left, especially on the platen glass.

  4. Close the document cover and make a copy of a text document to confirm the black line has disappeared.

When using the ADF to scan multiple document the scanner assembly stay stationary and the paper is fed across it. Where the scanner parks for this there is something between the scanner and the document, likely on the glass. Often there is a small strip of glass on one end of the scanner bed. Clean here if there is one, otherwise look around and I'm sure you'll find it. Remember, never spray cleaning solutions directly onto the glass, always onto a cloth or towel first. The scanner has a calibration strip that can be damaged otherwise.

Can i use my DCP 130C machine for photocopying? for small business. meaning iwill frequently use my machine for photocopying. would it be okey?What could be a posible problem in the future if there's any


You may use this a copier but usually, all in one printers used as copier take a long time to produce print outs. It isn't as robust as It usually scans the pages first (duration is the same as scanning a document) then prints it out (duration is the same as printing a document from a PC).

In my experience with our multifunction printer, a single page can be photocopied in about 45 seconds to 1 minute. It isn't as robust as photocopying machines.
