Try to wipe the scanner bed/glass with a soft cloth. If problem continues and the thick black line also appears when making a copy, it could be hardware problem. Then you will need to contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Thick black line when faxing and coping brothers ink jet model MFC-J615W


It really depends on how thick the black line is. If its say 1/2" to 1" thick then a segment of the contact image sensor has failed. If its very thin then that would be just dirt either of the scanner glasses or under them. When you open the scanner cover you will find two glasses. the thinner one is for the adf and the very large is for flat bed scanning. If you get the line when using both then the CIS is faulty and needs replacing. If either one is good with no line then it could be just the ribbon cable that goes from the main board to the CIS.

Bizhub C652 has horizontal lines.


its important to find out whether the \'lines\' are in scan direction/ or only through Radf or only from scan glass,

if the lines are only showing when documents are fed throught the Radf, then the problem lies with the document scan plate( left of the main glass platen (about 2" in width)) or with the scan plate blade cleaner

if the lines ONLY appear when copying from the Glass then the issue lies within the optics (probably nothing more than a clean will be needed)

another question would be to ask if the lines are solid (black line overprinting image) or if they are \'missing\' lines where the image has failed to copy, sometimes it can be hard to work out which side the fault lies,so try shaded greys as a copy original .

if the scan lines are appearing on both Radf and Glassplatten ,mode then the issue may be dirty optics/ccd sensor or it could e an indication of the ccd failing or image control pwb in error while interpreting the image file.

what to do

1) place a grey sheet of paper in the Radf and have the copier photocopy both sides of the original and print to single sided sheets ( so the printer turns the original over to complete the task)

observe the result.

2) have the copier photocopy directly from the platten glass- single sided.

observe the result.

ckeck to see if the error has appeared on both sets of prints ,

if the error has only appeared in the first set of prints then the issue may be a tiny DOT on the slit glass (left of platten) - a dot on this glass will indeed appear as a Line as the original is scanned across the glass.

hhope thhis helps

Thick black lines when scanning Samsung SCX-4824FN


The contact image scanner is faulty or the cable from the motherboard to the contact image scanner is faulty. I would bet it is the CIS as this scanner is used in many different machines (canon,lexmark,sagem) and it gives problems in all the machines. You can usually salvage a good one from an elcheapo lexmark inkjet multifunction.

Thick verticle line on copies and scans


Sounds like the issue is with the scanner bulb. May not be moving across or warming up to full capacity.

Make sure the scanner is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. If problem is still there and you are in warranty you will need to replace the unit. If OOW then you should call and see if you can repair or upgrade the unit at a discounted price. If you want to speak to someone in English tell them you want mac support - they are in Canada.

Black area above the scanned image.


If you set Automatic brightness/Contrast this happens. Try manual setting. Adjust different settings and select the best suited for a particular type of drawing. The scanner takes couple of milliseconds to judge the best lighting, by then the paper has moved little. This area appears black. This is easily solvable.

Thick Black Line on my copies and faxes


Can't image it being anything but scan glass, if prints are fine, are you sure you cleaning scan glass(inside of where originals are fed)?

If so then scanner lamp faulty, but I've never come across it myself on this model.
