Black lines on incoming faxes

I can not figure out what to fix on this. I have recently changed the drum and that fixed the problem for a couple days, but the black lines are back. At some points you can not even read the faxes that come in.

Please help

Pull out the drum cartridge. There should not be any toner on it.
(it could be defective [drum cleaning blade] especcially if it's a refilled unit.

There might be a small blue tab on top of the unit that you can slide back and forth to clean the charge wire.

But then again, if you just changed the drum, it sounds like it's defective.

Incoming faxes are dark. They keep getting darker by each page faxed. Any ideas what could be causing this?


Open the fron cover & remove the drum.In the drum unit you will see a BLUE knob just move it right to left approx 20 times.
After that fix the drum back & try to copy.

If the problem is same change the drum unit as the cleaning blade of the drum has been damaged


Rate me if it was helpfull...

Incoming faxes have black line running through the centre


If it is just from incoming faxes and not from anything you print/copy then it is the sender's fax machine that is dirty. If everything you do has that line, try cleaning the scanner glass and corona wire.

Solid black lines on the right side of page


Try sliding the blue tab on the drum unit side-to-side. If that does not cure it, you need a new DRUM UNIT

First, make a copy of something to determine if your machine is at fault.

Move the blue slider on the drum cartridge back and forth 10 times.

2 inch black lines on left side of outgoing and incoming faxes and copies as well


Sometimes the drum cleaning blade craps out. Remove cartridge and inspect the drum, it should be clean.

BLACK INK LINES ON INCOMING FAXES KX-FL511


It's time to change NEW DRUM UNIT..and that's why your Toner will Not Last Longer because unnecessary toner (the black lines) will be on the copy every time the fax comes or you make a copy.
