    I am sorry, but I do not seem to be able to clean this printer. You
    (Corysf62) suggest taking out the toner cartridge and cleaning the
    printhead with canned air. Which object is the printhead? I blew out
    everything I could see in the inside of the printer but no change.
    Secondly, you suggest that there might be dirt on the glass which can
    be wiped off. Looking into the unit, I see no glass anywhere. I would submit an image of what I see, but I can not get the insert image button to work. I would greatly appreciate any further help,

If you have already replaced the toner cartridge as you stated, and the lines appear in the exact same locations as they did prior to changing the cartridge, then the problem is most likely the printhead ( laser ) unit.

Now when I say this, it does not necessarily mean the printhead is defective, it may simply be dirty, or have either dust, toner, or paper obstructing the lasers line of site with the photoconductor.

Remove the toner cartridge, use a flashlight to look into the unit, and try cleaning the printhead using compressed ( canned air ) air. Most of the time the obstruction will clear just by this. In some cases, the dirt on the glass is stuck, and must be wiped off with a soft, lintfree cloth, but try the canned air first.

Please comment after you have tried this and let me know how you make out.

Thanks, and good luck

Brother MFC-6800 1. Prints with 3/8" blank vertical line down the entire page; 2. Prints with a couple of 1/16" blank vertical lines down the entire page; 3. Prints with some gray shadow...


This solution is unconventional but it worked for me. The black roller on my MFC had irregularities on it and was creating horrible printouts. I pulled out the drum and cartridge and cleaned the large black roller. I used furniture polish to make the roller very smooth. Now it prints really nice.

A vertical line prints on the back of every print job.


You will need to clean the rubber wheel of ink, that corresponds with the vertical line left on the page, use tissue paper.

About 15mm dark hadow vertical line on the page.


Sounds like its time for a new drum/print cartridge. When it get worn you start to get poor quality prints and sometimes lines. COule also be scratched and transfering the line on the prints but in either case needs to be replaced.

HP Laserjet 3330 printed dark page especially around the middle


Does this happen both when copying and printing?
For printing solution, try another toner cartridge.
If lines continue to appear when copying (primarily through the automatic feeder) then lift the auto feeder, and clean the glass -mainly the narrow piece on the left side.

please rate solution :)

Colored Vertical Lines when ADF Scanning


the scanner system using ADF is not the same as in using from the platen glass, (CIS usually called contact image sensor) reads your document and sends the info to be printed, chances are your CIS assembly could be dirty and have some dirt on its surface, try opening this area on the top of ADF and clean with a moistened cloth, especially the affeced left margin, it should work!
