The first step is to clean the glass in the scanner tray with a mild cleaner. If that does not correct the line, then you could try a Duster spay can (CRC Duster or Ativa Cleaning Duster, etc.) to try to blow on the arm that moves under the glass. Be careful as the can should be used in short spurts or it will get very cold and stop spaying or freeze something in the machine.

If still no luck, try to see if this site will properly guide you:

Black vertical lines come and go for scans to computer and copies

I suspect the Document Feeder is not aligned properly and light is leaking in. You will need to have a technician in to check the alignment of the scanner to see if it needs to be readjusted. random black lines on edges usually indicate light leaking into the scan area.

I am scanning a photo. I have translucent lines running horizontal through the picture before i print it.

Documents scanned/copied from the document feeder pass over a thin glass area where scanning occurs. Clean this area if sent faxes, copies or scans have black or white vertical lines.
  1. Lift the document cover to expose the platen glass.

  2. Wipe the ADF scan area (C) with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water.

  3. Then wipe with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth making sure there are no residues left, especially on the platen glass.

  4. Close the document cover and make a copy of a text document to confirm the black line has disappeared.

Hi,

Check both the Fuser Unit and the Cartridge for lines . In any of the rollers are found with a line that means it needs to be replaced.

Vertical black line in scan document not in copies through document feeder

Lift the lid and to the left of the main glass is a smaller glass; that is what scans during the feeding process. Make sure that it is completely clean; even a speck of dust can cause a line to appear. I took a lens wipe and cleaned mine and my line was gone.
