There is a dirt on the ADF (CIS contact image sensor) that reads your document, identify where the lines came from either from top or bottom then open your adf and clean the affected area. this will solve the problem.

SOURCE: Lines on making copies

clean the glass of the scanning area, a small dot of debris on the glass produces a vertical line from top to bottom in the feeding direction of the laser printer.

SOURCE: Lines print on copies when put through the scanner. But do not appear on copies when placed on the glass

You may also want to check if the ADF is dirty or contaminated with dust or hair. Here's a link with some information about how to clean the scanner:

Problem Cause Solution Colored lines appear. The exposure glass or scanning glass is dirty. Clean them. See "Maintaining Your Machine", About this Machine . Copies appear dirty. Image density is too high. Adjust the image density settings. See "Adjusting Copy Image Density", Copy and Document Server Reference . Copies appear dirty. Auto Image Density is not selected. On the control panel, select [Auto Density]. The reverse side of an original image is copied. Image density is too high. Adjust the image density settings. See "Adjusting Copy Image Density", Copy and Document Server Reference . The reverse side of an original image is copied. Auto Image Density is not selected. On the control panel, select [Auto Density]. A shadow appears on copies if you use pasted originals. Image density is too high.
  • Adjust the image density settings. See "Adjusting Copy Image Density", Copy and Document Server Reference .
  • Change the orientation of the original.
  • Put mending tape on the pasted part.
The same copy area is dirty whenever making copies. The exposure glass, scanning glass, or ADF is dirty. Clean them. See "Maintaining Your Machine", About This Machine . The same copy area is dirty whenever making copies.
  • The original that has already been printed is scanned.
  • Original Type is set to [Text / Photo], and an original with text and photographs that can hardly be distinguished from each other is loaded.
On the control panel, press [Generation Copy], and then begin copying. Copies are too light. Image density is too light. Adjust the image density settings. See "Adjusting Copy Image Density", Copy and Document Server Reference . Copies are too light. A light copy may result when you use damp or rough grain paper. Use recommended paper only and be sure its storage environment meets the recommended temperature and humidity conditions. For details about recommended paper and the proper way to store it, see "Recommended Paper Sizes and Types" and "Paper Storage", About This Machine . Parts of images are not copied. The original is not set correctly. Set originals correctly. See "Placing Originals", Copy and Document Server Reference . Parts of images are not copied. The correct paper size is not selected. Select the proper paper size. Parts of images are not copied. Even if you place originals in the ADF correctly, margin of a few millimeters on all four sides of the original might not be copied. Use "Create Margin" function to reduce the image of its original size.
For details about missing image area, see "Missing Image Area", Copy and Document Server Reference . images appear only partially. The paper is damp. Use paper that has been stored in the recommended temperature and humidity condition. For details about the proper way to store it, see "Paper Storage", About This Machine . Black lines appear. The exposure glass or scanning glass is dirty. Clean them. See "Maintaining Your Machine", About This Machine . White lines appear. The exposure glass or scanning glass is dirty. Clean them. See "Maintaining Your Machine", About This Machine . White lines appear. The dustproof glass is dirty. Clean the dustproof glass. See "Cleaning the Dustproof Glass", About This Machine . Copies are blank. The original is not set correctly. When using the exposure glass, face the originals down. When using the ADF, face them up. A moir? pattern is produced on copies. Your original has a dot pattern image or many lines. Place the original on the exposure glass at a slight angle. Black spots appear on the copy of a photographic print. Because of high humidity, the photographic print has stuck to the exposure glass. Place the print on the exposure glass in either of the following ways:
  • Place an OHP transparency on the exposure glass, and then place the print on the OHP transparency.
  • Place the print on the exposure glass, and then place two or three sheets of white paper on it. Leave the ADF open when copying.
White stripes appear on the OHP. Fragments of paper are stuck to the OHP. Use a dry cloth to wipe any paper fragments off the back of the OHP. The image on the back side of duplex copies has mottled blank patches or is smudged. Missing patches and smudges are caused by moisture leaking from the paper.
  • Do not install the machine in areas that are susceptible to low temperatures.
  • Use paper that has been stored where temperature and humidity conditions meet the limitations we recommend. For details about the paper storage conditions we recommend, see "Paper Storage", About This Machine .
  • Install the Optional anti-humidity heater. For details about the anti-humidity heater, contact your service representative.
When You Cannot Make Clear Copies

Two black lines down the side of the paper when fed from the top feeder.


Most likely dirt on the glass for the ADF scanner, but try making a copy from the glass first by lifting the lid and placing the document directly on the scanner. If that is clear, then it is definitely dirt on ADF glass. The ADF glass is the smaller piece of glass you see when you lift the lid. Use window cleaner and a soft cloth to make sure that you have all traces of dirt, liquid paper, post it note glue. Look at the glass from very carefully because even the slightest bit of goop can cause scan defects.

Horizontal lines/missing print occurs on my pages. I have tried to reboot the printer, but the printing issues remain. Do I need to clean the print heads?


Follow these steps to make it work... TIP: Focus on the printer it self. make sure that it can copy (b&w and color) fine.
If your done reseting the printer go to the next step Solution #2 Clean the All-in-One and make a blank copy Before you begin, gather the following materials:

Step one: Clean the scanner glass and lid
  1. Press the power Button to turn off the product, and disconnect the power chord at the back of the printer.
  2. Open the scanner lid, and remove any originals from the scanner glass.
  3. Spray a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with mild glass cleaner.
  4. Wipe the scanner glass and the white underside of the scanner lid with the dampened cloth.
Step two: Clean the automatic document feeder ADF
  1. If the product is not already off, press the Power button to turn off the product, and disconnect the power cord from the product.
  2. Locate the ADF frame to the left of the white underside of the scanner lid.
  3. Press the ADF frame release.
  4. Unhook and remove the ADF frame.
  5. Lightly dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with a mild glass cleaner.
  6. Use the dampened cloth to clean both sides of the transparent film, and the white strip in the center of the ADF frame.
  7. Clean the ADF frame.

3 thin black lines on copy


Do the black lines show up when you use the adf or if you make a copy from the copyboard glass. If the lines only show with the adf > there is a small **** of glass on the left side of the copy board glass > I would clean the slip glass with windex or a damp cloth..... Good Luck

When making copies using the ADF, vertical lines print out on the paper. Doesn't happen when paper put directly on the glass.


The ADF works by moving the paper past the scanhead, on glass works by moving scanhead past the paper.

When you are scanning with ADF, the scanhead is parked in a particular position, under the glass. Just at one extreme end. Open the unit to te point that you are able to clean the lint, debris, lollipop sticks from this area. That should be it, since works otherwise indicates a good scan head.

When I use the adf to copy something there are always two lines on one side of the paper (to mark the copy). How can I change the setting for this problem. It does not occur when not using the adf. Thank...


Hi;

If you are only getting the lines when using the ADF , but not when placing the document on the glass then there is some type of debris on the scan glass.

This is a small strip of glass that is independent of the copy glass. This glass should be to the left or right of the copy glass. Just glean this well with alcohol or windex and try copying again from the ADF and see if the problem is gone.

Good Luck

Streaking or banding on the papaer


*** NOTE*** does machine have an ADF (auto document feeder)? Are you feeding the paper through the ADF to make copy? IF machine has ADF and you get the lines from that, place original on the glass and make copy. Does the copy have the lines? If so continue. If not lines then clean the '**** glass' ( thin small glass that the original is pulled over in the copy/scan process. This is under the ADF.

Next, if problem not rectived, it depends on how the paper is fed ( comes out of the machine). Let us say that the paper cover out of the machine 'letter' or ' portrait' and you look at the copy --- the lines are from left to right on the copy, okay. These lines could be from the fuser ( the hot area), pull the fuser out and look at the fuser rollers. Do the fuser rollers have lines -- if so then the rollers need to be replaced. If not then you are looking at the drum / transfer unit. Probably a blade is bad and will need replaced. To tell whether it is drum or transfer -- start to make a copy and open the front cover as to stop the paper in mid-stream. This way you can tell which unit has the problem.
NOW -- lets us say that the paper is coming out 'letter' again but the lines are from Top to Bottom. You will also want to look at the drum and/ or transfer units. This would but a 'stall' or 'blade skip' problem. Again, start to make a copy and open cover in mid-stream to see which unit has the problem.

If the drum unit is the problem, replace blade and maybe drum. IF the transfer unit is bad, replace transfer blade, roller and maybe the transfer belt ( if belt is present). Some transfer units use belts and other rollers.
