Kodak i260 problem

A thin line appears periodically down the right hand side of my white documents. I have cleaned, etc. to no avail. How do I correct this problem? Is it a setting issue?

    We have a i260 that inserts a stay line down the forms that are being scanned. There does not appear to be a pattern to the line, but it adds data to the froms that does not exist quite often. Does anyone know how the line gets inserted and how to get rid of it??



    Thanks,

    We have the same problemw with the Kodak I260 scanner. 2 veritcal lines are formed on the back page only. Have cleaned the imaging guide & did not see any scratches on it. The lines don't appear to be lined up with a roller and they are symetrical.

    Some added information to get to the mirror for the back copy in the top section of the scanner. You will need to remove 4 screws. To get to all of the screws you will need to first open up the scanner to get to bottom of the top half of the scanner. One screw wll be under the top cover, at the very top, on the Right hand side of the scanner near the wire tape assembly. 2 of the screws will be at the bottom of the top section by the hairs at the interesection of the top and bottom of the scanner. To get to the last screw you will need to pul out the Separator Module in the center. The screw will be behind it. To put put back the Separator Module you just snap it back in. You may have problem with a large screwdriver, in that case use a small one blade screwdriver. Good Luck.

Is the image on the front or rear image?
anways-
remove the image guides and clean with soft lint free cloth in a longitudinal manner.
Recalibrate scanner using clean calibration sheet.
If line still persists remove back cover and slide out mirror/camera assembly. use canned compressed air to clean mirrors and finally the camera lens.

A line appears if a dust particle on the scanner glass is scanned continuously. Clena the galss with Isopropyl alcohol, dont use any solvent. If the line persists even after this, there could be some sensor problem. If accidentally a paper with a staple pin is inserted, the pin can cause scratch and a line will appear.

Printing from auto feed leaving lines down side of page


if you mean making a copy from the automatic document feeder check the slit glass (the thin narrow glass beside the big platen glass) for debris, white out, dirt, etc... a small dot on that glass will make a line on the copy.

When I use the printer to scan via the document feeder, I get two parrallel lines down the right hand side of each page of the pdf. I've cleaned the glass and everything else but still get the lines....


Open the scanner cover and you will see two glasses. One long and thin and the other larger than an A4 sheet of paper. The long thin glass is used to scan thru the adf and the larger glass is for flatbed scanning.
As your lines are from the adf scanning, you will see tippex on the long thin glass. just clean it off and all will be well. Clean the flatbed glass as well while you are doing the job on the adf glass.

When using the ADF for scanning to pdf, it creates black lines vertically down the left side of the document. If I use the flatbed scanner, no lines.

I get a white line on the printed pages on my Brother MFC4800. The line is about 5mm wide and runs down the left hand side of the paper, cutting through the type. Can you help please


Try cleaning the optics and the charge corona. If you do not have the operators manual which outlines the proceedure, go to www.welcome.solutions.brother.com. The proceedure is in the CLEANING documentation. Make sure the wire cleaner is pushed all the way back to its home position. Otherwise, the white line may return if the cleaner is left in the expoure path. IF THE WHITE LINE APPEARS ON PRINTED PAGES GENERATED BY YOUR COMPUTER, THE WIRE CLEANER IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE.. IF THE WHITE LINE APPEARS ON PRINTS THAT WERE SCANNED USING THE BROTHER SCANNER, THE OPTICS MAY BE SMUDGED. LOOK FOR CORRECTION FLUID ON THE GLASS **** (THE NARROW SCAN GLASS). THIS IS THE USUAL CAUSE.

DOCUMATE 510


check on the flat bed part along the top. there are two white strips that go side to side. the top white strip is wider than the bottom strip right underneath it. On the thinner of the two strips, check for small black marks, can be very small. This creates a black line in the document. You can clean it with a fingernail & a tissue

Line on Scanned Documents


There is a spot on the thin strip of glass that sits next to the large scanner glass. Because you are moving the paper when using the feeder, a spot appears as a line. Shining a flashlight on the glass can help you locate it. You can scrape it off with a finger nail or clean it with a damp cloth.
