There is a dirt on the ADF (CIS contact image sensor) that reads your document, identify where the lines came from either from top or bottom then open your adf and clean the affected area. this will solve the problem.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Lines print on copies when put through the scanner. But do not appear on copies when placed on the glass

You may also want to check if the ADF is dirty or contaminated with dust or hair. Here's a link with some information about how to clean the scanner:

Why is there a line on the left side of my copy when I use the ADF on my Canon Image Clas D1150? It does not do it when the flatbed is used. Please help. Thanks, Joann


When lines appear on copies of documents fed through the ADF, it typically means that there is some kind of dirt or foreign material on the glass that the document passes over. A different window is used when scanning from the ADF as opposed to the flatbed. The flatbed window is large, often much larger than a standard sheet of paper. The ADF window, on the other hand, is small and slender. It doesn't need to be large because the document moves over it (as opposed to the flatbed, where the document is stationary while the scanner moves under it).

The ADF window is usually situated next to the flatbed glass on the side of the scanner where the ADF takes in the paper. Open the scanner lid (as though you were going to make a copy on the flatbed) and find the slender piece of glass just under where the ADF would be when the lid is closed. Once you've located the ADF glass, use a mild glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth to gently clean the surface of the glass. If you are able to see the foreign material, you can remove it by hand, but be sure to clean the glass thoroughly afterwards, as fingerprints can also cause poor quality copies.

After the glass has been cleaned, test the ADF copy function and make sure the line has disappeared. If it has not, you may need to remove the slender glass and clean the underside (though this is almost never required, as the underside is protected from environmental debris).

If you find this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

Two black lines down the side of the paper when fed from the top feeder.


Most likely dirt on the glass for the ADF scanner, but try making a copy from the glass first by lifting the lid and placing the document directly on the scanner. If that is clear, then it is definitely dirt on ADF glass. The ADF glass is the smaller piece of glass you see when you lift the lid. Use window cleaner and a soft cloth to make sure that you have all traces of dirt, liquid paper, post it note glue. Look at the glass from very carefully because even the slightest bit of goop can cause scan defects.

Horizontal lines/missing print occurs on my pages. I have tried to reboot the printer, but the printing issues remain. Do I need to clean the print heads?


Follow these steps to make it work... TIP: Focus on the printer it self. make sure that it can copy (b&w and color) fine.
If your done reseting the printer go to the next step Solution #2 Clean the All-in-One and make a blank copy Before you begin, gather the following materials:
  • Several clean, soft, lint-free cloths
  • Mild glass cleaner
Step one: Clean the scanner glass and lid
  1. Press the power Button to turn off the product, and disconnect the power chord at the back of the printer.
  2. Open the scanner lid, and remove any originals from the scanner glass.
  3. Spray a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with mild glass cleaner.
  4. Wipe the scanner glass and the white underside of the scanner lid with the dampened cloth.
Step two: Clean the automatic document feeder ADF
  1. If the product is not already off, press the Power button to turn off the product, and disconnect the power cord from the product.
  2. Locate the ADF frame to the left of the white underside of the scanner lid.
  3. Press the ADF frame release.
  4. Unhook and remove the ADF frame.
  5. Lightly dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with a mild glass cleaner.
  6. Use the dampened cloth to clean both sides of the transparent film, and the white strip in the center of the ADF frame.
  7. Clean the ADF frame.
  8. Re-Install the ADF Frame

Step three: Make a blank copy
  1. Remove any originals from the scanner glass.
  2. Load plain white paper in the input tray.
  3. Press Start Copy Black to make a blank copy.
  • If the copy is clean, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the copy has vertical bands, lines, or streaks, there might be dust inside the product, poor internal connections, or the product might be damaged. Contact HP's Printers support department @ 1-800-474-6836

3 thin black lines on copy


Do the black lines show up when you use the adf or if you make a copy from the copyboard glass. If the lines only show with the adf > there is a small **** of glass on the left side of the copy board glass > I would clean the slip glass with windex or a damp cloth..... Good Luck

When making copies using the ADF, vertical lines print out on the paper. Doesn't happen when paper put directly on the glass.


The ADF works by moving the paper past the scanhead, on glass works by moving scanhead past the paper.

When you are scanning with ADF, the scanhead is parked in a particular position, under the glass. Just at one extreme end. Open the unit to te point that you are able to clean the lint, debris, lollipop sticks from this area. That should be it, since works otherwise indicates a good scan head.

When I use the adf to copy something there are always two lines on one side of the paper (to mark the copy). How can I change the setting for this problem. It does not occur when not using the adf. Thank...


Hi;

If you are only getting the lines when using the ADF , but not when placing the document on the glass then there is some type of debris on the scan glass.

This is a small strip of glass that is independent of the copy glass. This glass should be to the left or right of the copy glass. Just glean this well with alcohol or windex and try copying again from the ADF and see if the problem is gone.

Good Luck

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.
