Mfc-8220 prints black bar on right side

The full page width of text is printed, but it's compressed to the left and a band of black fills the right-hand side?
This is serious. A laser printer really does use a laser to form the image. The machine uses a single laser dot, some odd-shaped lenses, and a mirror mounted on a spinning motor to send that dot across the page a few thousand times as the page passes through the machine. If everything is pushed off to one side, you have either a defective laser assembly or main board. Replacing either will be expensive.
There is one thing you ought to try. We can reset all the machine's memory, on the off chance some electrical glitch has confused it.
First, we have to put the machine into Maintenance Mode. From the normal ready state, touch thes buttons in a span of two seconds or less:
The machine will go crazy with alarm beeps, and if you slow down to see what's wrong, it won't work. Press the Stop button and start over. It's made to be difficult, because Maintenance Mode is dangerous. Entering the wrong numbers can seriously mess up your machine. Don't go exploring, please.
If you are in maintenance Mode, the display will read MAINTENANCE, and all the lights will flash in unison.
Functions in maintenance Mode require touching two digits. it won't wait for your to touch Enter or Start or anything else - as soon as you touch that second digit, it starts doing what that code says, so no typos on the keypad, please.
There are two stages of memory clearing. Lets' start with the less destructive one - it will clear a lot of garbage from the memory, but leave your phone number and stuff like that.
and wait while it clears the memory.
When the display returns to MAINTENANCE, touch
to exit Maintenance Mode. Sit back while the machine goes through its start-up procedure, as if you'd just plugged it in. Make a copy for a quick test. If nothing has improved, go back into maintenance mode (Menu * 2 8 6 4), and enter 01 instead of 91. This will clear all memory back to the fresh-out-of-the-box condition. Exit with 99 and test. I think the problem is too serious to be fixed with a memory reset, but you might get lucky, and all you'll lose is the name & phone number programmed into the fax. Good luck.

How do I turn off protocol monitor on sharp fax model fo-235

Had exact same problem on UX 177. You need to clear the memory. On the UX 177 unplug machine, press and hold down the COPY button then press and hold down the STOP button. Keeping these two buttons pressed plug machine in. It should display message "clear memory ?" let go of the COPY and STOP buttons and press the START button. Will then display message "memory cleared". This will also wipe out all other programming but it is the only way to stop protocol report. Then reprogram all your settings.
That stopped protocol report printing after each fax. On some machines it may be the stop and start button the need to be held down on startup. It also seems to make a difference which button you push first even though machine is unplugged.
This problem returns after a power failure so if you have a lot of numbers programmed in you might want to get an inexpensive uninterruptible power supply or plug fax into UPS for computer if you have one.

In addition to clearing memory this *will reset unit to factory defaults.
*****all of your programmed settings will be erased.

First power down the fax by unplugging, then power on.

After the power is turned on and "WAIT A MOMENT" is displayed, press & hold the STOP key.....until a normal display message shows.

*The above step allows the memory to be cleared! If this step is skipped clearing memory to factory defaults, (below) may not always work.

Press the "function" key followed by ALL of the following

9 * 8 # 7

wait until "diag mode" is showing.

Then press start button, followed by either * or #
until "memory clear" message is displayed.

then press start. If stressful "memory cleared" is shown.
proceed to re-program your fax machine settings.

Open cover message

Several possibilities with that. Trying to think what order to try things.
In your menus or settings, there should be a way to clear the memory. You may have software corruption causing that issue.
If you do a memory clear, you will have to enter your date, time, phone number and company name.
You may have a loose connector to the interlock switch or on the circuit board. You would have to unplug the machine and disconnect and reconnect the connectors.
one of the cover interlock switches itself is defective.
Could simply be one of the covers is just twisted or warped.
Possibly one of the cartridges is not seated and arching, corrupting the memory.
After that, there very much less likely is a bad circuit board, ( very unlikely).
The reason I suspect memory corruption is because you have to unplug and plug it back in to clear.
A faulty switch shouldn't make you remove and reconnect power. But, stranger things happen...
Good luck and let me know whats up. Maybe I can offer more ideas once you check theses items. I know , it's a lot.

Unplug the power cord from the back of the machine for 30 seconds. Put your finger on the stop key first and then re plug the machine, hold the stop key until the time and date return to the LCD. Do not worry about losing any faxes the machine can be powered off up to four days without losing faxes in memory.
