Brother mfc 8860-dn maintenance

Our printer is producing a dusty black line down the middle of each printed page, but sometimes goes when several pages are printed in one go. We have changed the drum and the toner cartridge, cleaned it as best we can and its still there.

Any idea?

If the line is in the same spot it does still sound like there is a piece of dirt still stuck on the clear plastic scanner cover which should be located right on top when you open the machine. it can get dirt stuck to both sides so make sure you are getting the underside too. rub your finger over the top too make sure you feel no grit then clean

This solution is unconventional but it worked for me. The black roller on my MFC had irregularities on it and was creating horrible printouts. I pulled out the drum and cartridge and cleaned the large black roller. I used furniture polish to make the roller very smooth. Now it prints really nice.

My Brother 8860 DN does not copies, yet it can print . The menu screen only allows fax, not scan or copy.


This is commonly an issue with the Keypad PCB. We can get you pricing on parts if you want to try this as a repair. Does the machine beep 3 times when you hit the copy or scan keys?
