Whether scanning or copying (NOT printing), a single black vertical stripe shows up on the document. It is about 3/4 of an inch wide and is near the left margin. Sorry but I cannot get a picture to show up.
@behnkeba Vertical or horizontal lines or color bands are typically caused by fingerprints, smudges, or debris on scanner parts, cartridge issues, or there is a power or calibration issue with the scanner mechanism.
Step 1: Clean the scanner parts
Fingerprints, smudges, dust, or debris on the scanner glass, under the scanner lid, or in the document feed slot can cause lines and color bands. Clean these parts with a soft, lint-free cloth sprayed with glass cleaner.
Read one of the following sections for steps to clean these components, depending on your printer type.
