Blue line on scanned page in epson 1500

You either have a scratch on your glass, or your scanner is going bad.
1. Clean the glass, then scan again. If you still have that line, Wipe the hell out of the glass and blow air through the calibration holes. If that doesn't work, take it back and get a replacement. The scanner is not working correctly.

Is there anyway to remove scratches from inside glass on inside oven door of a Wolf?

There isn't any safe way to sand down glass by yourself. If the scratch is really bad, I suggest contacting Wolf for a replacement glass. Here is their site for replacement accessories.

Horizontal line on all pages after scanning

Open the cover and clean the glass on the top and the glass on the bottom. Use a soft cloth. You can slightly dampen the corner of the cloth with water and rub them clean. Inspect the glasses for deep scratches.

How do I get rid of the line running down the scanned document?

Simple, clean the ADF glass that the paper passes over during a scan (not the flatbed glass itself, just the thin strip of glass at the head of the flatbed glass). A speck of dirt on the glass will appear as a line down the length of the paper.

Outgoing faxes have large vertical black line on receivers end. I have replaced toner and drum. Incoming faxes are fine.

Stop! Does not need any parts...

If you do not use the automatic document feeder (ADF), you will see that the faxes are clean on the receiver's end.
(In other words, use the flatbed)

OK, now the fix:
1. open the scanner like you are going to use the flatbed glass.
2. On the far left part of the glass top, there is a "speck" or smear of dirt that you should be able to see.
3. Use eyeglass cleaner / wipe or other glass cleaner technique and clean the glass on the far left of the flatbed. ok, clean the whole glass while you are at it.
4. Your scanner (you didn't mention the brand or model number) may have a narrow slice of glass on the left of the flatbed... clean that, too.
5. Test it ... it should be ok now.

Hope this helps!

Have a 5750C with vertical lines on image- any ideas...?

I'm guessing this is on the feeder right? It's usually caused by gunk on the glass strips. Small scratches in the glass will hold onto dirt tenaciously. Use a cotton swab & alcohol in line with the scratch to coax it out. Don't try to scrape it with a tool, that just makes the scratch deeper. If you still don't get it after a few tries, it could be something in the Optical Unit behind the glass. That would be better left to a trained tech, since the OU's are very delicate & expensive.

Document feed Scanner Glass Scratched

If the scratch is not to deep you can polish it out with lots of  elbow grease and cigarette ashes. Their are also products n the market to polish scratches out of glass. A really light rubbing compound like for 3M might work.

Scanner Glass Smashed

More than likely yes, unless you like to mod things than perhaps you could replace it with plexi glass. Could not promise it wouldn't even work after that but would also take time and know how.

Black vertical lines on faxes sent using auto document feeder

If you lift up the lid on your scanning device you will notice a glass strip about 1 inch thick and then the large area of glass used for flatbed scanning. The 1 inch strip is used for ADF scanning. Because your papper is moving across the glass strip, any dot, smudge or scratch will affect your scanning and cause verticial lines down the page. Sometimes the dot is not visible to the eye. Get some glass cleaner that has alcohol in it and thoroughly clean the glass strip and it should solve your problem. If it turns out to be a scratch on the glass then cleaning won't help.
