Printing problems I have a Brother MFC-8460N printer and when I print things, a black smudge appears on the right side of the page and it darkens the right side of the paper. What should I do to fix this?

    YES THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM WITH A SIMPLE SOLUTION- IT is the DRUM that is at the end of its life (25000 pages max) it needs to be replaced because these drums begin to leak when they are old

Hello sir;The streak line from printing also should be from copy, because the line come from imaging unit, check the meter count if close to or over 50,000 then replace drum and drum blade, it will take care the problem.

Hi Phillip,
If you have changed the drum and toner, then check the fuser unit. The teflon coating on fuser film could be worn.

No more clean copies/letters.


Take out your toner cartridge. Run the lavender tab back and forth to clean the corona wire. See if that alleviates your problem.
