All of a sudden, all copies run through the paper feeder have a sold black line on the right side of the paper. The line does not appear when a copy is made by placing the original on the glass. Any suggestions?

When you use the flatbed the copy is perfect because the ccd sensor is under the glass cover and obviously is free form dust/ dirt.
On the other hand if you use the feeder the ccd sensor is located in between the roller assembly (not sure exactly for this model).
This means that the page is scanned by the ccd in the feeder, any dirt on the ccd will appear as a black line. I assume that you are feeding papers from the side and not from the top that is why you get a horizontal line.
A quick test to see if the ccd sensor is dirty is to feed the paper from the top side to the feeder. If you get a vertical line it is a proof that your ccd sensor needs to be cleaned.
The worst case is that the sensor in the feeder assembly has a tiny spot that is damaged and it is causing the black line.
So , first try the test, then open the feeder assembly, locate the ccd and clean it. Hope that this helps.
Open the scanner lid and clean the narrow glass in the left-hand part of the scanning area. Look for remains from ink or corrector at the far end and wipe them out. The narrow glass should be entirely clear to make good copies from the feeder.
Pop open the fax document feeder, and look for a glass strip about 1cm wide, that runs from left to right across the machine. You will probably see a few spots of dirt, or more commonly, a blob of white liquid paper stuck on the glass, on the side of the machine that corresponds to the black lines on your fax. Clean this glass strip gently, using a soft cloth dampened with a mild detergent. I often use diluted windex. You may need to scrape liquid paper gently with your fingernail. Close the cover.
Next, put a blank sheet into the feeder and make a copy of the blank page. If you have cleaned it properly, the copy will be blank as well. If you still have a line, align it with the feeder and use this as a guide to show you where the glass may still have some **** stuck on it.
You need to lift the document feeder and clean the small **** exposure glass located to the left of the main exposure glass.Any foreign substance on this glass(ink, glue, correction fluid,etc.)will cause lines on copies when you use the feeder.
you've spilled some cartridge ink on the
FEEDER ROLLS, or in the PAPER PATH... Run a few double sided test patterns, problem will do its own housekeeping... Be more careful with handling your INK CARTRIDGES !!!
The scan glass is dirty or it has a scratch on it. It can be a small dot of ball point pen ink. A small ball of tape adhesive. A hair....it is not always easy to see. Clean it with a good solvent.
Also if the ADF feeder tray is out of adjustment, it could be caused by the edge of the paper.
