Canon MB5320

Each time I scan my documets to clients there is a black vertical line. How do I have this line removed. I like to send clean documents to clients.

Windows 7 The printer is a multi function printer/scanner/fax/copier. When I make copies there is no black vertical line that runs through my copies. However, when I use the ADF the black vertical line runs through the scanned documents.

Re: Canon MB5320



The lines that you are experiencing may be a result of the scan glass being dirty or scratched.  The scan glass that the printer uses when scanning from the ADF is located to the left of the larger glass area (platen) when you open the cover.  It is the smaller glass strip on the left hand side of the unit. 


Spray some glass cleaner on a paper towel and then clean the smaller glass area.  Once cleaned, try scanning from the ADF again.
