Depends on how you scanned it by having the lid opened and no paper on the scanner. Are they totally black?

Why does lines appear in my printed copy?


If you're getting lines, especially when making copies or scanning, it could be due to some dirt on the scanner glass. Wipe your scanner glass with a lint free cloth. Then try scan or make a copy again to verify that the problem is fixed.

The printer is streaking black streaks through the copies. What can I do to fix this problem?


If printing from your computer prints clear pages with no streaks, then the problem could be due to some dirt on the scanner bed. Grab a moistened soft cloth and gently wipe the scanner glass to clean it. Try to make a copy again.

Getting black strip about 9/16"

Black pages received when faxing to others


Your scanner array is bad. This is a light "bar" that lights up to scan your originals before they are sent out. You can test for this by making a copy with your machine. The same scanning function is used to make a copy as it is when you scan to send a fax. If you make a copy and it comes out black then your scanner is bad. This is especially true as when you say that the problem goes away for a short time after turning the machine off. This allows the circuit to cool and the solder connections to shrink and make contact. As the board heats up the metal contacts expand and "open up", causing the scanner to fail.
Not a cheap fix unfortunately.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Problem with using the printer copy feature


Please make sure you are positioning the page to be copied on the scanner bed correctly. There is usually one corner of the scanner where you should place the page.

Most scanners mark the "home" corner with either some obvious tic marks or even painted arrows.

Blurry Scanning/Copying


Are you scanning both black and white and color the same way? The ADF (automatic document feeder) uses a different scanning area than when you place the document on the scanning glass. If you open the scanner cover, look to the left of the main scanner glass to the narrow strip used for the ADF. Make sure this narrow strip is clean -- no ink or white-out or scratches. This can make your copies look dirty or smudged.
