Straight thin line prints on copies from feeder


Hi,
When the paper is fed through Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) it is scanned before copy or fax. The scanner is fixed type and is located just below the ADF.
The lines are due to dirty scanner mirror. The printer/ scanner design is based Sheet-Fed Scanner. Open/Lift the Control Panel (scanner top )(by pulling it up from front - the area from where the paper to scan comes out). Look out for the horizontal mirror and use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently clean the scanner mirror, rollers etc. and enjoy clear scanning and copying! For example see the below picture: -

Inspect for any tron pieces of paper dirt etc.DONT USE PAPER, CHEMICALS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTH as it may damage the parts.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

We were getting streaky lines, it also ask us to replace the durm which we did. Streaks have not gone away


Are you getting these lines when copying? Or Printing?
Or both. Are these dark lines or blank lines?
If it is just when copying, try making a copy by laying an original on the glass rather than using the feeder. If this copy comes out clean then you need to clean the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) scanner glass. Just open the section where the documents are fed into and you will see a strip of glass that runs from front to back, about an inch wide. Clean this with a soft cloth and a bit of glass cleaner.
If this works then great. If not then reply back with more details and I will help you further.

Black lines down on printed page


This is caused by dirt/debrise on the ADF (automatic document feeder) scanner glass. You need to open up the feeder where your originals are fed in and look for a strip of glass that runs from front to back. It is about an inch or so wide. You need to clean this glass to get rid of the lines. Some models have this glass just to the left of the large main glass, but in your case I beleive it is in the feeder itself.
Good Luck.

Red/yellow line down left side of document when using feeder


the solution to this issue is cleaning the scanner glass below the automatic document feeder(mind you its not the scan bed that you normally use while copying) .you will get the ADF scnner glass once you lift the ADF door,you will see a 1 inch wide scanner glass.that is what you need to clean.

When printing or faxing from the top tray of my HP OfficeJet 6310 all in one I get a line that runs down the entire page on the copy or fax to the recipient. I have tried cleaning the glass and rollers...


The key to solving this problem lies in what you observed. It only happens when you use the document feeder. As you noted, when you place it on the glass, there is no line.

When you use the feed, your machine does not pull the document onto the main glass to scan it with a moving bar. Instead, the bar parks itself under the roller section, and the document gets scanned as it rolls past the stationary bar. A spot or speck that blocks the light bar as the document rolls past manifests itself as a vertical line.

Lift up the left cover and the roller carriage and you will see a narrow pane of glass about 1-1/2" wide. This is what you clean. I cleaned mine twice, unsuccessfully, with a glass wipe. Then I decided to align the streak on my copy with the glass, and saw the faintest speck.You may have to look VERY VERY hard under a bright light, but it will be there. A third, more vigorous and direct scrub and the speck was gone--so was the streak.

If the vertical line appears in both modes (document-fed and manual) then there is something on the light bar, or the bar has a broken scan pixel. If the main glass were dirty, you would not see a line, but random spots, and then only when fed manually. Dirty feed rollers can make lines, but not usually the clean, precise lines that are created by a blocked scan bar.

Streaking or banding on the papaer


*** NOTE*** does machine have an ADF (auto document feeder)? Are you feeding the paper through the ADF to make copy? IF machine has ADF and you get the lines from that, place original on the glass and make copy. Does the copy have the lines? If so continue. If not lines then clean the '**** glass' ( thin small glass that the original is pulled over in the copy/scan process. This is under the ADF.

Next, if problem not rectived, it depends on how the paper is fed ( comes out of the machine). Let us say that the paper cover out of the machine 'letter' or ' portrait' and you look at the copy --- the lines are from left to right on the copy, okay. These lines could be from the fuser ( the hot area), pull the fuser out and look at the fuser rollers. Do the fuser rollers have lines -- if so then the rollers need to be replaced. If not then you are looking at the drum / transfer unit. Probably a blade is bad and will need replaced. To tell whether it is drum or transfer -- start to make a copy and open the front cover as to stop the paper in mid-stream. This way you can tell which unit has the problem.
NOW -- lets us say that the paper is coming out 'letter' again but the lines are from Top to Bottom. You will also want to look at the drum and/ or transfer units. This would but a 'stall' or 'blade skip' problem. Again, start to make a copy and open cover in mid-stream to see which unit has the problem.

If the drum unit is the problem, replace blade and maybe drum. IF the transfer unit is bad, replace transfer blade, roller and maybe the transfer belt ( if belt is present). Some transfer units use belts and other rollers.

Lines appear when making a copy using document feeder tray


If the lines are vertical (in the direction the ADF feeds, 11in long for 8 1/2 by 11) You can try cleaning the glass the scanner uses when it's using the document feeder. Pull up the top left part of the printer where the documents feed, there's a little rib in the middle of the side to help you do this, then simply pull up the assembly underneath with all the rollers in it, you should see about an inch of glass underneath and a centimeter long strip of white plastic on the assembly (this serves as the white background when feeding slimmer papers) Clean them both. I'd recomend any glass cleaner, just don't spray it in there, spray it onto a cloth.

Horizontal black and white lines are coming on copy


you don't mention whether the document you are copying also appears on the paper.If it does you could have 1 of 2 problems-
The drum cleaning system could be at fault or-
the fuser roller has picked up some **** easy test...... run copies and when the 1st copy edge appears switch OFF. This is a crash stop.Now examine the sheets in there.Is the stripe on the copy before the fuser (Heat) roller? If yes you could have a drum cleaning problem, usually fixed by changing the drum module.If no and the stripe appears after the heat roll, the problem is with the fuser system,dirty rolls etc. There are a number of other problems with stripes, but you have to start somewhere! If the document does NOT appear on the copy, forget all above, could be scan or ROS problem
