Question about HP OfficeJet 9120 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Printer/Scanner Problems I need to get rid of a long black line that shows up on digital and hard copies of anything that I scan or print. It wasn't there before. However a coworker believes that it could've been caused by a paper jam in the automatic sheet feeder. It appears to be cleared, however, this line still keeps showing up. What can we do to get rid of it?

Does the line show up on PRINTS FROM YOUR COMPUTER also, or only when SCANNING A DOCUMENT? If the line is only from scanned documents, the SCAN GLASS has something stuck on it. The SCAN GLASS is a GLASS **** located under the ORIGINAL FEEDER. It is NOT the plate of glass you place the original on . Look UNDER the original feeder for a scrap of paper stuck in the optical path of the GLASS ****, and remove the scrap, or CLEAN THE SCAN GLASS IF CORRECTION FLUID, INK, ETC ARE STUCK ON IT. If the line shows up on ALL prints, your CHARGE CLEANING SLIDER located in the IMAGING (DRUM) UNIT must be slid all the way to one end of the charger, OR IT WILL CAUSE A BLACK LINE ON ALL PRINTS. Otherwise, the IMAGING UNIT may need to be cleaned or replaced. Toner smudges on the drum would indicate need for cleaning or replacement.

Sounds like you have a glitch in the main logic board of the printer when it prints the axial location buffer is loaded either with junk or isn't functional and sees nothing but blank data in that location. Try resetting the printer consult manual/mfg for reset codes?

I have a lexmark x364dn. It has a line through the copies I make. I can print and scan and it is fine. The line is just on copies


Assuming the COPY uses a automatic document feeder. The doc feeder scans doc by passing doc over a narrow window. If there is a dot or several dots in the narrow window, it / they will show up on copies as a line.
Clean the window (looks like a long glass window about 1 inch wide ) carefully with a SLIGHTLY damp towel. Should get rid of the lines.

When I copy fax or scan from my printer MFC-7420 there is a line right thru' the page.how do I get rid of the line?


The line doesn't show up when you print, right? If you are feeding your original from the document feeder when you get the line, there is most likely Wite-Out, dirt or other debris on the thin strip of glass to the left of the main scanner glass. You'll probably be able to see whatever is causing the line and clean it off, but if you can't see anything, try cleaning that glass strip with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free rag.

If you get the line when copying off of the main scanner glass, there is dirt or dust on your scanner's mirrors, lamp, or lens. To get rid of the line, you'll have to take the glass and surrounding covers off and blow compressed air onto the mirrors and other pieces of the optics assembly. If that doesn't get rid of the line, wipe the mirrors down with a dry lint-free rag.

All you need to do is clean the top feeder which opens into two parts. make sure you clean the black rollers as well as the small strip of glass you will find when you open the second part of the top feeder . don't be afraid to pull open the top feeder it won't break

HP 3055 printing black lines when using collate feature to copy


All you need to do is to clean the small wide glass (that at the LEFT of the main flat big class). The Auto Document Feeder (ADF) specifically uses this glass to scan for copy (and fax). When it is dirty (such as small dirt or particles on the surface which is easy to gain in long run), it will create thin vertical line(s) as the result.

Dell No. 962 (All-In-One Printer)


you need to go to your printer settings and make sure it is set as the default printer for everything. Make sure it is also set as your default scanner. you may also try lightening the image with the lighter/darker setting on the machine. if this continues, you may want to see if a section of the light is burnt out. this wiill cause darkness on scan & copies but not printing from the c drive. Make sure the machine is lighting up completely when is scans or copies. If part of the lighting is burnt out it will be a fix or replace situation.

Black lines


Not sure what you have tried but if there are no lines when printing but there when scanning there is something on the scanner. Could be something as small a single dot of dirt and it will put a line down the whole page. Try cleaning the glass.
