Question about HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One - multifunction fax / copier / printer / scanner color
Officejet 9600: vertical lines (4) in center of page when copying using ADF. No lines when copying from glass. I tried the ADF roller cleaning procedures on HP's trouble shooting pages. They did not help. The lines are not in direct alignment with the rollers. Can I get inside the ADF cover to see if there is debris in there? How can I fix this?
Try this fix, even though its a different model printer, same kind of build

"YOUR troubleshooting pages". We are FIXYA dot com, not HP!
This problem is always caused by dirt or correction fluid on the narrow glass strip that is in the document feeder. Clean it with an alcohol based cleaner. Usually, the head end of the Doc Feeder levers upwards.
Nothing to do with the rollers, it is the optics that need cleaning. As the carriage moves, it records whatever is on the optics. Do your secretaries use correction fluid like Tippex? If I had 10 bucks for the Tippex I have cleaned off them. :>)

An unfortunate issue with any MFP is debris on the slit of glass the document passes over when being scanned but also, dust under the glass which is seen by the lens as a solid causing stripes/lines on copies. Without being able to open that area, [and I really mean by someone who has experience opening up the machine], to clean out the optics of dust/debris, the lines will continue.

When using the ADF, the scanner doesn't move. The long rectangular platen glass on the left side of the machine is used, not the large glass. I believe that if you clean the long, thin piece of glass on the left side of the platen, your lines will disappear.

SOURCE: Cannot scan anymore. The
Many known scanner issues of this model by HP.
Most likely uneconomical to repair.
I've tried to fix dozens of these models, but the problem comes back in 2 weeks.
