SOURCE: Brother HL-4040 Laser Printer -- Print Unable 6A Error

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: red streaks

That machine needs constant cleaning, you slide out the toner drawer and one at a time remove each toner, open the frosted plastic flap below and slide the wiper back and forth about 10 times to clean the corona. You could also have a bad magenta cartridge which Brother will replace for 90 days from date of purchase.

The problem lies with the black toner cartridge. This is a common problem in these machines due to poor design by Brother. Best solution is to replace the offending color toner cartridge.

SOURCE: MFC-9440 CN Laser Printer is producing vertical color line streak

Colored vertical streaks - looks like a transfer belt problem, and it's not user fixable. You may need a new belt unit - you can find it for around US$ 80-120, but you may want to have a technician inspect the unit first, since it could arguably be the drum instead, and you don't want to fork around US$ 100 and replace the wrong part.
You can try showing a printer sample at a print shop; by looking at the streaks it is possible to diagnose drum, fuser or belt problems.
Here you find a much more detailed page, for another printer model, but the issues are mainly the same for most color printers:

Remove the drum and toner from the front cover of the machine. On the top right of the drum unit there is a tab that you can slide. Please slide it 20 times from left to right and bring it back to home position.

Print quality issues on these models is usually if not always down to the cartridges used. I bet you are using compatible cartridges. If so just buy a set of genuine ones and I bet the quality will be perfect again.

If you used a compatible cartridges your problem is probably in the cartridges, replace them. If those are genuine dell cartridges get back to me. Good luck.

I cannot print black when the color cartridges are empty. MOdel mfc665cw


Don't you see the logic? Brother wants you to spend money by buying color cartridges. And also, most printers are also using colors to make the prints darker.

We have recently bought a second hand OKI C5200 Colour Laser Printer and even though the black and white print seems to be great the clour is coming out with coloured streaks, what would you recommend?


One or more of the drums may be defective. Swap the black with another color and print a document. If that color printed the charectors ok, then continue the test with the other drums each taking a turn in the Black drum position until you find the bad drum.
