Mfc-8220 prints black bar on right side
The full page width of text is printed, but it's compressed to the left and a band of black fills the right-hand side?
This is serious. A laser printer really does use a laser to form the image. The machine uses a single laser dot, some odd-shaped lenses, and a mirror mounted on a spinning motor to send that dot across the page a few thousand times as the page passes through the machine. If everything is pushed off to one side, you have either a defective laser assembly or main board. Replacing either will be expensive.
There is one thing you ought to try. We can reset all the machine's memory, on the off chance some electrical glitch has confused it.
First, we have to put the machine into Maintenance Mode. From the normal ready state, touch thes buttons in a span of two seconds or less:
The machine will go crazy with alarm beeps, and if you slow down to see what's wrong, it won't work. Press the Stop button and start over. It's made to be difficult, because Maintenance Mode is dangerous. Entering the wrong numbers can seriously mess up your machine. Don't go exploring, please.
If you are in maintenance Mode, the display will read MAINTENANCE, and all the lights will flash in unison.
Functions in maintenance Mode require touching two digits. it won't wait for your to touch Enter or Start or anything else - as soon as you touch that second digit, it starts doing what that code says, so no typos on the keypad, please.
There are two stages of memory clearing. Lets' start with the less destructive one - it will clear a lot of garbage from the memory, but leave your phone number and stuff like that.
and wait while it clears the memory.
When the display returns to MAINTENANCE, touch
to exit Maintenance Mode. Sit back while the machine goes through its start-up procedure, as if you'd just plugged it in. Make a copy for a quick test. If nothing has improved, go back into maintenance mode (Menu * 2 8 6 4), and enter 01 instead of 91. This will clear all memory back to the fresh-out-of-the-box condition. Exit with 99 and test. I think the problem is too serious to be fixed with a memory reset, but you might get lucky, and all you'll lose is the name & phone number programmed into the fax. Good luck.
