Re: mark on page

First try to clean the head: Open the top cover and print head, Moisen a small piece of soft, lint-free cloth with alchol and keep wiping the edge of the print head... second, This could also be caused by excess lubricant on the tonercartridge . Print or feed up to 10 sheets of paper through the printer to eliminate the marks. If the problem continues please contact Brother Customer Service at 1-800-284-4329 Monday through Friday, 9:00am - 7:00pm EST, excluding holidays.

When I make copies or transmit a fax, it makes a 3/4" black line down the left side. I have cleaned ink cartridges and contacts but does not help.


The line is probably not from the ink cartridges or nozzles (assuming regular printing doesn't streak). Streaks on copies and transmitted faxes are usually due to dirt or problems on the scanner unit. First clean the flat bed of the scanne. If you have an automatic document feeder, clean that.

Clean with a lint free cloth moistened with a little water or glass cleaner. Make sure no foreign objects are in the ADF path or on the glass. For pictures see the Lexmark support site: http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=product&linkSelected=node0&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US#1. Then enter "streak on copy" - the solution comes up in a pop up.

If the streak is shrinking, then copy a blank white piece of paper to identify where to clean further. Try scanning another page with a small mark on it. (These are particularly helpful for cleaning the ADF.)

If the mark occurs when you print, then check if you have a damaged cartridge or other ink that has spilled inside the printer.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a Xerox Phaser 3100MFP/X copier. When I send a fax, the faxed copies have a 1cm thick mark all the way done the page. Please advise me on how to make this mark disappear or who to notify to...


There is a narrow glass window in the document feeder which the original passes. If there is even a small dirty spot on the glass it creates a line on the copy or sent fax. Try to clean the glass with alcohol (no whisky, hi) but 96 per cent spirit.

Thick line when goes throught auto feeder


The automatic feeder passes the page over the scanner, the scanner does move, so even a small mark (often find it is correction fluid) will effect the whole page, check the glass on the left side of the scanner for any sort of mark

Black marks on pages


Can you stop the copy before the page gets to the fuser section? If you can and the doubling image is there you need to replace the drum cleaning blade and possible the drum as well. If the marks are there after the fuser section the problem is in the fuser. You will have to replace the Upper fixing roller. Good Luck... You may have a hard time finding the parts, this model is old and not a very popular copier..

Problem with using the printer copy feature


Please make sure you are positioning the page to be copied on the scanner bed correctly. There is usually one corner of the scanner where you should place the page.

Most scanners mark the "home" corner with either some obvious tic marks or even painted arrows.

Xerox Copycentre C123 Creating a Ghost Image


First place an original on glass and make a copy -- mark #1. With that same original on the glass, move the exposure all the way light and make a copy -- mark #2. Again with the same original on the glass, move the exposure all the way dark and make a copy --- mark #3. Place #1 in the middle so the the copies read --- #2, #1, #3. The #2 should be the lightest and #3 being the darkest. If #2 is darker than #3 you have a developer problem and you need to call for service. If #1 and #2 are bad and #3 is a good copy your machine probably just needs a good cleaning, mainly the optics and charge units. If all 3 copies are still poor with the speckles, your are looking at the PCU ( photo conductive unit) also called the drum unit. You can order this unit online -- it is a customer replaceable item.

WHEN YOU SEND A FAX IT LEAVES A LINE HALF INCH BLANK DOWN THE RIG


Does it also leave the line when you make a copy? Lift the lid and make a copy cover up. If it is there on the copy then most likely your scanner needs to be cleaned. If it isnt there when you copy, let me know we will go from there.

Top Feeder scanner leaves a line along the copy


This Is good for all "all in one machines"

There is a dot on the 1inch glass, when making a copy or faxing or scanning it makes it form that part of the glass. It shows as a line because the paper is moving as it is being scanned. clean the glass w/ alcohool. Sometimes it is hard to see because the background is black and the dot may be a pen or pencil, but it's there.

try to take the copy and lign it up w the glass and look where the line is you might see it htere.
