Black marks on copies


This printer also has a drum unit. If the marks are appearing at regular intervals down the page (2-3 inches apart) it is almost certainly the drum unit at fault. The drum unit can easily and cheaply replaced.

When printing, the toner does not completely get distributed. Consequently we are left with a "white" line through the print on the right-hand side. The white begins about 7/8ths inches in from edge and...


It can either be the toner cartridge itself, or the fuser.

Try a full cleaning, and if that does not help at all, you will have to replace the toner or fuser or both.

You are nearing time for a drum replacement. Here is link to the Brother site for your printer. Be careful when purchasing drums - I made the mistake of buying an after market drum kit and after 100 prints was replacing it again with a OEM part.

Black horizontal lines in printout


Seems like the drum needs changing. This is the most common cause for print problems in these printers. If using the high yield TN 6600 toner then you need to change the drum every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN 6300 toner then the drum will need replacing every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps

Did you mean 'vertical' (from top to bottom) line rather than horizontal? If it goes 'straight down,' it has to be. I think so, otherwise the added info that it is closer to the right wouldn't make sense.
This problem is normally due to contaminents on the surface of the drum itself although can also occur if a wire that discharges the excess toner from blank areas could be dirty.
Changing the drum cartridge will correct either of those problems since they are contained in the drum cartridge. If you are using 'recharged' cartridges and it only has a few copies on it, most companies will exchange it for you.

Black line down right margin


Have you tried a new toner and drum unit? if not please do so. If that doesn't work then it is a scanner lamp failure and will need replacing.

You can fix it but trying to obtain this part for such an old machine will be hard. Don't know the part number sorry.

Thanks J

Vertical streak near left edge of printouts....only affects black portion of print image


Where best to look will depend a little on the nature of the smudge. If what you're looking at is white, then you might just have a little heap of toner or paper dust on part of the LED array that paints the picture onto the photoconductor drum (look for a narrow unit that stretches full width, adjacent to the drum. Dark marks may, if you're lucky, be down to dirt on charger wires. Both respond well to cleaning with a vacuum and a soft cloth (be very gentle if cleaning the wires). I would be inclined to trust the existing photoconductor unit unless you know it's been abused (e.g. by leaving it lying around in daylight) or the coating on the drum is visibly damaged. A.
