Dark line when trying to make original copies.

If I copy documents off the internet the copies come out great, but when I copy without the internet the copies come out with very dark bold black lines. ex. if i want to make a copy of something just to have an extra copy, thats when all of these black lines appear. then you can't see all of the coied document

The type of printer you have reads the image you want to copy by passing the paper in front of a image reader (it is like a wand with a light-slit on a side).

If someone passed in front of this reader a paper with something like dirt on it (or typing corrector not dry enough) some of that could stick ON the light-slit, so that the section covered with it cannot read any more the image you want to copy at that point!

Try to make a copy and look from above or aside where that light-wand is located, then try to clean it with a clean hanky. It could involve some technikal skills, maybe you have to loose some screws to get to it.

If dirt stick on it after this, try with some alcohol (no solvent please!). After cleaning the reader, copies should come out ok, please let me know.

Rate the solution please! Thx

How do i print copys of MX310 printer manual


Do you mean the Canon Pixma MX310 all-in-one inkjet printer? If you wish to print a copy without using a computer, first make sure that you have ink and paper loaded and that the all-in-one is on and the paper output tray is extended. Place your document face down on the glass or face up in the automatic document feeder. (Note: the scanner doesn't see the document if it is within 2 mm of some of the edges of the platen glass. If you use the ADF, remove any document currently on the glass.) Press Copy (if the unit isn't already set to copy). Check the default settings on the LCD screen and enter the number of copies desired. Press Settings to change any items and use the left/right arrows to change the number of copies, if needed. Press the Color or Black button to make the copy(ies). Color for color documents and Black for black & white documents. Press Cancel to stop copying.

The FAQ on making a copy without storing the image on a computer is here: https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART120681&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=1485643876501 .

The manual is available on the product support page: https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/printers/support-inkjet-printer/mx-series/pixma-mx310 . Click on the Manuals tab. The manual is in a self-extracting executable file. You'll need to run the program and then find the icon or folder where the manual is stored. (The default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon/IJ Manual .)

I hope this helps. If this doesn't work, please add a comment with any error messages that you see.

3 bold black lines running through copied, scanned, and received documents


Either the fuser or drum has lines or the copier needs a real good cleaning. If it is the fuser or drum then you will need to replace them.

I do not know what program you are using but it sounds like you may have a default paragraph or character style set up in the target document. For example if the document that you are copying from has a normal style that has bold setting and then you copy it into the target document that has a normal style with say italics, the normal style in the target document will apply.

This is the case in programs like quarkxpress and indesign. Hope this gives you some ideas to help you out.

We were getting streaky lines, it also ask us to replace the durm which we did. Streaks have not gone away


Are you getting these lines when copying? Or Printing?
Or both. Are these dark lines or blank lines?
If it is just when copying, try making a copy by laying an original on the glass rather than using the feeder. If this copy comes out clean then you need to clean the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) scanner glass. Just open the section where the documents are fed into and you will see a strip of glass that runs from front to back, about an inch wide. Clean this with a soft cloth and a bit of glass cleaner.
If this works then great. If not then reply back with more details and I will help you further.

When printing dark line down copy


A line down the copy can come from a dirty document scanner lens.
Usually white out or wet ink will smudge on the document scanner. Opening the document cover check the scanner for a dirty glass. Some document feeders have the white roller on top of the small glass window. They have delicate plastice retainers that hold the roller on both ends. Extra care needs to be taken if this roller is removed.
Clean the roller and the glass with wet towel. Shine a flashlight on the glass to see if there are anymore black marks on it.
Use the finger-nail to run across the glass and make sure no debris is on it. Even a spot can make a line on the copy.
Also, a bad fuser roll can cause a black line on the copy. A defective drum unit can cause a line on the copy as well.
If all else fails place a Xerox service call for this problem.

M. Works won't let me paste anything onto document f/the Int.


After copying the contents you need go to edit on microsoft works and click on paste special. A small window should open asking you to select from three options. Click on unformatted unicode text then click ok. That should do it. Although italics and bold letters come out as regular print like the rest it does paste all that you've copied. This usually happens when you haven't updated your internet. After updating mine I no longer needed to do this process again.
