Check your users manual...ther is a small re-feed pad made of rubber underneath the doc feeder where your originals feed in...this may be worn or missing...the machine came with a spare when new...if not you'll have to get the pad replaced.
You have not specified why you can't read the right side of copies and I am assuming that the reason is because the 'lines' are covering the text. I can offer a solution to the lines issue.
Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page. If this is the cause you will also find that faxes you send to other people will also have this line (although faxes you receive are not affected by this problem with your machine).
To fix the problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.
IF YOU ARE HANDY, WHEN YOU OPEN THE FRONT COVER YOU WILL SEE THE FUSER SECTION IT SAYS VERY HOT ON THE COVER IT COMES OUT WITH 2 SCREWS THERE MAY BE PAPER IN SIDE HOLDING DOWN A SENSOR. GOOD LUCK BROTHER SR TECH
By cleaning the feed rollers you the fax will feed beter.Remove the dockfeeder and the paper tray.you will find the feed rollers in the bottom of the paper tray.Take a cloth and a stong soap selution and clean the 2 feed rubbers.
its quite possible the area that scans the paper(s) you are sending is dirty.
If the machine is one of those phone/fax/scanner/copier jobs, simply
open the top panel, and with a damp cloth, wipe the runners that feed
the paper through from left to right or right to left (just make sure
any dirt you're wiping goes off to one side)
its also possible that a paper (that white-out was used on) that has been recently faxed, left some white out on the feeders
