There is a switch in the document feeder that tells the machine there is a paper there. This switch is not being hit by the paper or the switch is not moving freely. With a flash lite you should be able to see this switch move.

There is a vertical black line appearing when I scan or copy


To the left of the A4 scanner glass, there is a narrow glass strip. This is when the top document feeder scans from. Check for any contamination (even a small speck) on this glass at about the position of the vertical line.

When I feed copies thru top feeder a black lines appears down one side of paper


Hello,

This type of problem is usually caused by something like white out or lint stuck to the scanner glass. Open the top of the scanner and clean all of the glass surfaces with window cleaner sprayed on a paper towel ( do not spray on the glass) , allow it to dry and then try to scan. Here is a link to some pictures that show what to clean.

The feeder in my office copier is not feeding the paper thru it. It only copies if you manually put it on the glass.


Hi, you need to open the adf cover, check for any leftovers of paper or clips, or... also clean the pick up and feed roller with alcohol by piece of fabric.
Also have on mind that the feeder is only for plain paper usage.

Our HP laserjet M1522n has a vertical line going through the paper when using the top feed. the line doesn't appear on copies made thru the computer or on the flatbed, only thru the self feed. any one??...


If you open your "self feed" cover, you should be able to see the scan glass that originals pass over to copy. Clean that glass thoroughly. There is some dirt or whiteout (liquid paper) on it which causes the shadow or line on copies. Let me know.

I have a brother copier model dcp 7025 and am experiencing a vertical line on copies where the original is fed through the top feeder tray but the copies are fine when the original is placed directly onto...


Depends which way is vertical but I think the feed rollers on the upper tray are slipping perhaps dirty. (The paper momentarily stops feeding past the scan sensor)

Lines on making copies


clean the glass of the scanning area, a small dot of debris on the glass produces a vertical line from top to bottom in the feeding direction of the laser printer.
