Question about Brother MFC 9600 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Brother MFC9600 dirty printing

Brother MFC 9600 prints with big wide smeary black smudges running vertically, ttwo obscuring black bands 2" wide approx one inch from each L/R edge. Mulitple cleanings of drum, corona wire, and replacement of toner hasn't changed a thing. Here's the curiosity, the black thick deposited toner smears CLEAR WITH ADDITIONAL PAGES OF PRINTING. If I print a 10 page document, pages 1-3 are unreadable, 3-6 show diminishing black smears, and by 6-10 they are perfectly clear and normal looking white backgrounds.

What can cause this? It must be obvious to someone who understands how they work. I don't want to waste money on a drum only to find out its fuser, or on both only to find out its something else. A new printer is cheaper. Can you help, please????

    Thanks bethwood77 ...I'm aware that this may fix it, but a (new not refurb) drum (which comes c toner) costs nearly as much as the new printer with same functions and network connection. So, I'm afraid to spend on the drum and find the problem isn't solved, say its the fuser.

    Maybe I'll give it a shot.

We were having a lot of print quality problems, similar to what you describe. We replaced the drum and it worked fine.

I have a Brother MFC 8440..the paper has vertical black lines


Try changing the toner, if it's generic that's your problem, and if it's either an old brother drum or a generic you may need a new one. There is also a glass to clean, it's right above where the drum sits inside, 1/2 inch wide across the top. Wipe with a dry cloth.

Very nice trouble shooting. The image defect you describe point to the OPC or drum unit this is essentially the toner cart. In your case black. Measureing the distance between repetitive defects is a sure way of diagnosing problems such as yours. Again nice work.

Google repetitive defect ruler for your model to help in the future.

Hope this helps

Remove your drum unit and you will see on top of where the drum unit sits inside your machine is a piece of glass(inside the machine). Wipe the glass with a soft dry cloth. If this do not work, remove your toner cartridge and see if the toner is spread evenly on the cartridge.

Print Problem - vertical lines


If the problem only occurs when using the document feeder, the problem is not usually caused by the drum. When using the document feeder, try to notice where the scanner (the light assembly under your scan glass)stops just before the paper is being fed. Some multifunction machines have a small piece of glass that is separate from the large scan glass and the scanner assembly stays parked underneith it as the original is being fed over it. Most likely there is something on the glass where the scanner parks as originals are being fed thru the feeder. When putting your original on the large scan glass to copy, the mark on the glass will only show as a spot, but will show as a vertical line thru the whole copy when using the feeder.
