Black line at top of copies

All of our copies have been coming out with a thick blak line across the top. If we lighten the copies, it is better, but then the copies are too light. it is otherwise working fine and we don't want to give it up because it is quick.

You could have a scratch on your drum. If you take a look at it inside the machine, see if it appears on the drum.

When you run a copy it leaves a couple thick dark lines on the paper that you copied too.


If you lighten the exposure do the lines fade away ? It most likly needs a drum or a drum cleaning blade. Good luck.

Thick black line appears 1/2 way across image when scanning


Try to wipe the scanner bed/glass with a soft cloth. If problem continues and the thick black line also appears when making a copy, it could be hardware problem. Then you will need to contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

I have a Canon PC 940. The copies are coming out with black lines ( 1/2 inch wide ) on the sides of the paper. Do I need to get the copier cleaned? Thank you.


Could be optics needing to be cleaned. First I would rule out the toner cartridge. If you have a spare swap it out or remove your current cartridge, turn it over and slide open the "gate" that covers the drum cyclinder. The drum should be clean all the way across it's surface. If you see toner on each end then that is where your dark sides are coming from. If the drum is clean then most likely you have dust building up on the optics mirrors. One test for this is to manually lighten the exposure control on the operation panel and then recheck your copy quality. This may cause the rest of the copy to be light but if the dark sides goes away then your optics are dirty.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Problems with SPF message and black copies


The "Check SPF/RSPF" issue can be a couple of things
  1. If the scanner only moves from right to left then immediately moves back then the copier needs to be adjusted.
  2. If the scanner moves from right to left and tries to feed then displays message then the ADF needs to be cleaned.
Same for the dark issues
  1. If you lighten the exposure and the copies come out better then copier needs to be adjusted
  2. If you lighten the exposure and the copies come out the same then you may have a few problems check the following;
  • Open right side door and look at drum green/blue cylinder . If it is covered with toner (black film) then you might have a drum short.
  • Open right side door and look at drum, if it is not covered then you may have a board issue.
While making a copy off the glass listen to the right side of the copier and if you can hear a screeching sound then you could be having an electrical short that is causing your black copies.

Depending on your findings depends on the remedies.

I have a dark line across copies


Whats the make and model of the copier?
One culprit might be the drum.  If you can take a look at the drum from your copier and you see black lines on it.  It could be scratches on the drum or it may need a new cleaning blade to clean the toner off the drum.

Sharp AR-207 copier puts .5 inch black line across entire bottom of copy


does the line only show up when making copies from the adf or both when you put it on the glass. if only when thru the adf the **** glass is dirty. that is the glass that is only about an inch wide. be carefull of the two pieces of tape that are on both the front and back of that glass they fall off easly.

Thick verticle line on copies and scans


Sounds like the issue is with the scanner bulb. May not be moving across or warming up to full capacity.

Make sure the scanner is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. If problem is still there and you are in warranty you will need to replace the unit. If OOW then you should call and see if you can repair or upgrade the unit at a discounted price. If you want to speak to someone in English tell them you want mac support - they are in Canada.

Thick Black Line on my copies and faxes


Can't image it being anything but scan glass, if prints are fine, are you sure you cleaning scan glass(inside of where originals are fed)?

If so then scanner lamp faulty, but I've never come across it myself on this model.
