You may have ink on the Rollers that pick up the paper, also extra ink on the print head itself may be leaving behind some marks. Depending on the model of the printer this may work. Turn the printer on, when the cartridges move to the center quickly unplug the power. Remove the cartridges and look to were the cartridges normally "rest". clean this area by placing some tissue paper in this section for about 5 mins. There is a sponge under the cartridges "bed" and if it is over-saturated it will pool up on the print head, the tissue will adsorb some ink from this sponge. Also to clean the print head try this method, Simply fill a saucer with approx 2mm of just boiled water and place the print head in the saucer with the head in the water. this will dissolve any excess ink from the print head and also help clear any blockages!!
I hope this helps, if so please rate my response. Thank You for supporting the Fix-Ya Community

Ok I have Canon Pixma MP500 All in One and Vertical black line shows up over and over but only if Im printing from top feeder not main one. I have followed handbook. Cleaned feeder, fixing unit, etc.


Your problem could be a simple as a blot or spot stuck on the scanner, carefully clean the scanner glass and particularly the small bar itself with a disposable alcohol swab, you may be surprised what kind of gunk you remove and it may well solve your problem.

How to get rid of the vertical black line on the paper?


Usually replacing the toner cartridge fixes that problem. Sometimes it's the fuser.

Rimage Everest II printer can't be adjusted


Usually this is caused by the black index marks on the transfer roll not being indexed properly. Look at the used transfer rolls and you will see small black lines that the printer used to index the print. Either they will not be crisply printed on the transfer pointing to a bad ribbon, bad or dirty printhead. OR, the sensors are dirty that read this index mark.

This evening I bought a new HP Photosmart C4780 printer. I am trying to print photos now and the photos are being printed with small vertical lines across the whole photo. How do I get rid of them?


> I bought a new printer

Take it back, and get one that does work correctly.

> VERTICAL lines ACROSS the whole photo

Hold the paper in "portrait" mode, not "landscape" mode.
Are the lines HORIZONTALLY-ACROSS the paper,
or VERTICALLY-DOWN the paper?

If those lines are WHITE and HORIZONTAL,
then some of the many ink-jets inside the print-head are *CLOGGED*.
Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle" to try to unclog it.
Or, exercise the WARRANTY, and get it replaced.

Problem making copies (not print from my computer)


Does the line show up when you copie from the bed of the scanner or from when you send it through the auto feeder or both? Check the glass for any small mark and remove it if you find one and try again. Its more then likely a mark on teh glass somewhere.

I get vertical banding with hp z6100 and all kinds of media. These are "tracks" from pinch rollers. Any help or suggestions appreciated.


Hello,

Turn off equipment,open cover remove drum and toner unit.
Set aside on old newspaper and cover it with cloth so the light wont damage the drum.
Take your flashlight and look for a shield or glass about 8 inches long
usually on the surface that the cartridge rests on. Clean with swab and spirit.
If you cant find a glass or shield look towards the cieling of the inner chamber of the printer it may be there or you may find an led array which is dirty. Clean carefully.

Insert back and test to see if it will solve the problem.

Take care.

When the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to copy I


There are two scan modes when copies are made.When you make copies through ADF you originals go past small **** glass located to the left of the main exposure glass.Any small mark on this **** glass( correction fluid mark,ink mark,small scratch,dust particle and so on)will show as a line on your copy.So to get rid of these vertical lines on your copies you need to clean this small exposure glass.

Prints thick black lines


Hello, Andrea.

Sounds like either your printer needs a new fuser assembly (If the teflon roller gets scratched or starts to disintegrate you will get lines or black marks on the page) or you need a replacement toner.

Hope this helps.

Vertical lines through scanned images.


You should clean the small glass under the top lid. Chances are there is some white out or ink or mark on the glass. Look carefully because usually it is just a small dot>
