Technician's Assistant: What is the machine's exact make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

HP Officejet Pro Serial #CN484DXOOK

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

Maybe 2 plus years.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Mac

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Not right now.Thanks!

They have assigned me (2) case numbers and have my credit card info listed twice.
I don't know where the extra charge came in and my CC better not be billed twice.
It's been a while, where is my tech support?

When will someone respond to my questions?
It's never taken this long before!
Please let me know which Order ID # we are working from.
I have been assigned (2) and my credit card info has been listed on both.
This makes me extremely uncomfortable!

I noticed it yesterday when printing scanning sheets but just got back to it tonight.
What in the world is this additional charge...You have already charged $23 for nothing!!!
Technician: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

That is the cost you agreed too.

It is displayed on your deposit screen.

The other amount is for the remote, that is optional but you did request it. You have not yet been charged for the remote.

What would you like to do?

I am being charged $23 and plus an additional $39 for you to actually look into the problem?
Technician: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

No. The second amount is for me to connect, this is optional.

Without it I cannot connect, only the Q&A service.

This is standard on the thousands of people we help daily.

I cannot handle payment issues as I am an end user to the site like you, please call 1(###) ###-####and speak to the billing team and once you're happy, let me know and we can continue.

you are saying the $23 will cover only the Q and A services?

Happy with what?
Can you help me with the Q and A?
I did not accept the additional $39 Charge!
Technician: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

OK that's fine.

Do you wish to continue Q&A only?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Please!
Technician: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

OK great. I hope you understand the costs are not determined by me!

Does the line come up printing, scanning or both?

Thanks

Only when printing a scan, doesn't do it when printing only
Technician: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

OK, simple fix.

There must be somthing on the scan glass.

Does it have a feeder and a flat bed?

just printed
a copy and it did it then too
Technician: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

So anything that involves the scanner?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I just fed something in and copied and it had the line
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
this happened a few weeks ago and they were able to fix it for $5
Technician: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

OK so you need to clean the copy glass. It is on the left hand side the small vertical strip.

There will be dirt on it.

We are not a $5 service.

I'm not sure I understand how to do what you are saying?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
do I need to clean the glass itself?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
are you there?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
We found the charge on our credit card $23 charged on 10/16.
The tech was able to repair it quickly, it was not dirt on the glass.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Would you be able to pull up the work order under my name?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
