There is something on the scanner glass. Not on the big glass, but where the 1" glass piece on your printer's left side where the ADF is. Clean i. It can be as little as a piece of dust that can cause the line.

If the line occurs when running documents through the document feeder and not when placing your document on the glass the problem is a dirty "**** glass". Open the document feeder and look for a thin glass that probably has white out on it. Carefully remove the whiteout with your fingernail or with a damp cloth. Good luck.

I have a Epson cx11 and get a black vertical line down the middle of scans and copies


Check your flat bed and Document feeder scanning glass need to be clean, if any dot or dust in scanning glass of document feeder it will appear a line, check this points first
1- Check printouts from computer or FAX if it is clean problem in scanning section
2- Check using Copying a blank paper using only Flatbed if it prints without any line its problem from document feeder Scanning glass
So solution is clean the Document feeder scanning glass using wet cloth, note careful about wet cloth switch off the machine and clean it

I have a line that runs down the center of all the documents I scan. What can I do?


On your scanner, there is something (dust?) that is blocking that part of the scanner from scanning that column on the scanned document. Clean the scanning-head.

We have a black line down the center of all copies...


If the problem only happens on copies or sent faxes then no it is not your drum. There is something on your scan glass. My guess is you are getting the line on your copies when you run the original through the document feeder. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on

Line down center


Often this is merely a mark on the scanner glass. When using the automatic document feeder the light/sensor will stay in one spot and motors will feed it. Make sure to clean the glass in this part usually left of the large glass area is a smaller strip see if there is a mark on the glass there.

Black line scanning on digital sender


Yes. There will be an access cover / lid where the document goes in.

Open the cover, and you will see a thin glass, called the 'scan glass'.

Look in the middle of the glass. You will most likely find a glob of white-out, or ink on it.

Use rubbing alcohol to clean off the culprit.
