Scanning and faxing

I get a black line right down the middle of my page when I scan or fax documents. Do you know how I can fix this?

    I also get a black line down the document, but it's right of center. It happens when faxing, scanning, or copying from the top feed. It does not happen when printing using the back or bottom tray feeds, or when I copy or scan directly from the glass. This is making me crazy because I need to fax resumes and college transcripts, and the federal jobs require a special barcoded page as a cover sheet. It messes up the barcode, and they can't process my application materials. I've tried everything in the user's guide and nothing has fixed this problem. Please help me if you can. I've had this printer for less than 2 years, and I can't afford a new one right now. Thanks

    Any document(s) fed through the ADF print or scan with both thick and thin black lines. This doesn't happen scanning from the platen. Cleaning the glass did not help.

    I agree, I have the same problem with my MX870. Clean print from glass or computer, but if I fax or print from the top, it leaves a couple of lines. I've tried cleaning; deep cleaning; roller cleaning and back plate cleaning. I cannot clean the rollers, as I cannot get my fingers in to where they are. Any suggestions?

Clean the glass with soft cloth and smallest amount of water, rub hard to get off the small dots that cause the lines even if you can not see any

The receiver of my FAXes says that there is a black line down the middle of each page. The FAX is a good copy-clear, etc.... but this line has to go. What can I do? Thanks, Donna

Dear Donna,
When a document is scanned from the top portion of the printer, it will loop around and output from underneath. The scanning glass on the far left side will have some debris on it. Lift the the lid exposing the glass portion, inspect for "stuff" on the glass, perhaps pen or white out. You can use a mild soap and lightly dampened cloth to remove any debris.
Good Luck,
Pre

The fax scanning unit/encoder is dirty.

The fax scanning unit is like a camera. It take a picture of the document.

The glass plate is dirty and you may purchase a FAX CLEANING SHEET.

Officedepot

http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/470251/Office-Depot-Laser-Printer-Cleaning-Sheets/

or similar product to clean out the dirty area.

The dark strip is cause by semi-dry wipe out correction ink.


Give your unit a good cleaning and let me know.

Line appears on scans and faxes


Do you use the document feeder when faxing and scanning? If so, the line is likely some paper dust, white-out, or other dirt on the thin piece of glass to the left of the main platen glass. Wipe that glass strip with a lint-free cloth, and if that doesn't work try using a little bit of alcohol.

If the line persists, or it occurs when you don't use the document feeder, it's probably dust somewhere in the optical portion of the unit, underneath the glass. If you want to take it apart, you can blow some compressed air around down there to scatter the dust or try wiping down the mirrors with a lint-free cloth.

I need to know how to send a fax from a brother MFC-295cn all-in-one printer


Hello Frank,

Sending a fax is fairly simple.

1. Make sure you have a telephone line connecting to the LINE jack on the side of the MFC-295CN

2. Check if you have a dial tone by pressing the "hook" button on the machine while the line is free.

3. Place a page face down on the flatbed scanner or in the document feeder on the top of the machine.

*Note: If you are using the document feeder, once the page is placed in, you should see "enter fax #" on the LCD

4. Enter the fax number the same way you would dial a regular phone number.

5. Press "Start"

*Note: If you are using the flatbed option, after the sheet is scanned, you will be asked if you want to scan a second page. For additionnal pages, press 1, to end scanning and start faxing, press 2

6. If the fax goes through properly you will see "completed" on the LCD

Stripe on receiving fax Brother MFC 7820N


I had the same problem, and I just fixed it.  It was a tiny little black dot which was stuck to the glass where the document feeder passes the paper to.  First you need to figure out where the line is on paper with respect to the paper, and just carefully run your finger on the glass to see if there is something on the glass.  I removed it, cleaned the glass, and anything which I run through the document feeder is now fine.  Hope this helps.
