That sounds like one of the scanners bulbs is not working correctly. since the unit is most likely still under the one year manufacturer warranty I would recommend that you contact the manufacturer for warranty replacement.

Thick black line on scanned document


Try to wipe the scanner glass clean with a soft lint free cloth.
If the "thick black line" also appears when making a copy, then there's something wrong with the scanner hardware. If this is the case, I highly recommend you to contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance.

How do I scan photos


Although different scanner has different option still I am giving you the general method of scanning.
Put the photo on the scanner (photo face down touching the glass of the scanner) - look the cover is perfectly placed and no light is entering inside of the scanner. Now run the scanner software - select scan item as "Photo" (other options are text or documents etc), select the option "Color" (other option is Black and white or gray ). Select the resolution more than 200 dpi (more dpi will give better output), give path where the file will be saved after scanning or keep it default, choose the file type JPEG is better (other options may be BMP, TIF etc). First you get preview - look the expected scan output - if required you adjust or lace the photo on the scanner better way - then again get preview - if you are satisfied you may select the portion out of the whole preview page for scanning - now click scan. It will give JPEG file in the specified location.

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord


hi
Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    Thick Black line


    This issue occurs if the scanner lamp is not getting enough voltage.
    make sure that the printer isn't connected to a surge protector,
    also you may try making a copy of any document.
    this will be a hardware test, a reset of the printer might resolve the concern.
    since the reset requires technical supervision,

    revert back for further clarifications.

    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.

    Black lines when scan and copy documents


    It is because coping is not the best way to get a perfect copy on the printer, Try scanning with computer using black and white photo it will come out much better if you are doing a pic. then use color picture.
