Question about Canon ImageClass MF5770 Laser Copier Printer Fax Scanner Network
Scanned images have black vertical lines running through them. Scanner worked fine until today. Solution?
The common solution on this sight to this problem on any copier seemed to be simply clean the glass. I first cleaned the glass on the bed...no help. Then I lifted the feeder and discovered a portion of the glass under that as well. Once it was cleaned the lines disappeared!
I saved $$ on a useless service call for a simple, easy to fix problem thanks to this site!

i figured out a great way to fix this
i took a sheet of paper and numbered it 1-50 acros the top
i then scanned it and printed it out.
i then held it up to the the window for scanning (for batch scanning)
i was then able to find the miniscule specks that casued the lines.

You should clean the small glass under the top lid. Chances are there is some white out or ink or mark on the glass. Look carefully because usually it is just a small dot>
