Why is there a black line on copies when pages scanned with automatic document feeder but fine when using the flatbed scanner?


Different paper path, the MultiFunction unit is dirty - Most likely toner inside the roller or paper path. Try a laser cleaning cloth that you can buy in some stores or online. Search: Staples

MFC 8440 drum changed but still states to change drum soon. Faxes are only coming in after turning off/on machine. It indicates printing but nothing happens.


There were instructions with the new drum cartridge that explained how to reset the drum counter. If you still have the box and paperwork, then go through that step-by-step and reset the counter. The machine still thinks that it has the old drum. After a certain amount of copies or prints, the machine will save itself by turning off the printer or copy functions.

I have a Brother mfc-8440. It prints light on the


Usually when it prints light on one side and normal on the other, it's either the drum (which you replaced) a dirty corona wire, or the toner is unevenly distributed in the cartridge. You can removed the toner cartridge and gently drop it from a distance of about 4-5 inches to dislodge any caked up toner. This is normal in a cartridge that has sat a while or if the fax machine is in a room with high humidity.
Hope this answers your question and best of luck.

Brother mfc 8220 gives error message check original but no paper jam exists.


I assume you're getting this error when sending a fax?
Check original is not a paper jam error. This can happen in the winter due to bad noise on the phone lines. When you send a fax, you can get this result from the receiving machine due to noise. The receiving unit will transmit the error back to the sending unit.
The unit is basically asking you to check the quality of the original document. 90% of the time, there is no problem and the receiving unit actually got a good copy. However, sometimes due to noise on the line the receiving unit will get a poor copy of the fax. In this case the fax should be resent. Of course, since there is no way for you to determine how good the copy is at the receiving unit, in most instances you will have to resend the fax to make sure it goes though.
If, however, you are getting this message while copying (very unlikely) you can do a simple test of the document scanner that should reassure you that there is no serious fault, or pinpoint the actual fault.
Press the following key sequence within 2 seconds: MENU, *, 2, 8, 6, 4. If your unit has a FUNCTION key, use it in place of the MENU key. This should take you to maintenance mode. The display should say MAINTENANCE and all the lights should be flashing. If not, try unplugging the unit, press and hold either the MENU key or the FUNCTION key (depending on which your unit has) and plug the machine back in. This will also take you to maintenance mode.
Now, just press 5 5. This is the scanner area setting command, and if there is any problem with your scanner it will show up here as an error. If there is no fault with the scanner, the unit should return to maintenance mode in a moment. Once done, press 9 9 to exit maintemance mode.
If you are constantly having this error, get a phone repairman in to test your fax line.

Will not make a copy


If it won't copy, it is unlikely to handle faxes either since those functions use the same scanner. If your received faxes are coming out blank, then it is a problem with the ink system; if you can get faxes printed but not copy a document, the scanner may be at fault.
Have someone send you a fax to check this function (printing) and then try sending one back to check the scanner.
If either one fails, then hyou know where the problem lays.

Changing the CIS scanner


First remove the scanner control panel. pry the hinges out slightly and you can take off the control panel, then there are 4 or 5 screws and the top comes off. The 2 long rollers come out too. move the clip and slide them to the right. The scanner is the 3/4 inch wide 8 inch long scanner. ( the glass that reads your faxes to send ) It is coonected with a flat cable. It pops up when you push the clips holding it down. Lawrence
