Hi,

 

 

Your getting the vertical line because some debri or dust on the scanner glass, please watch this general video on how to resolve this issue.

Note: This video is of a different printer but the ADF mech is the same as of pro M200.

 

 

Hope this helps

Do you have the line copying from ADF only or from the flat bed too?

also have you tried a self test page, is that page fine?

ADF only. I printed the test page to locate the are where the debris should be and scratched although I couldn't see anything, wiped it all down again, still a line. The flatbed scans and copies without the line. (Maybe in the feeder?)

How about the white plastic backing any dot or dirt on it?

 

yes you can open the ADF and try to clean the rollers and the ADF area

Great advice.

 

In my case, there were a couple black specs on the white plastic rollers. I removed one roller from its seating to clean it properly, however replacing it was a challenge. It is held in place by a small coil spring that runs through the roller and fits into slots at each end. Firstly, to counter-act the forces of gravity, you need to be above the mechansim. This means placing the printer on its rear side on the floor, so that the entire hinged feeder panel will be horizontal/resting on the floor. Next, getting that tiny little spring to clip into the slots took a little work, but it all ended well. The lines are now gone.

 

Important to remember you are dealing with very small parts and lots of plastic components. It is easy to lose and break things.
