Does the same thing occur with a different document.. Because it is not repetative, it leads me to believe the line is being drawn at the direction of the software. Try printing a test page, and see if the line appears. If not the issue is from within the word processsing software. It almost sounds like a legal template for a pleading..

Canon IR 2870 copy with a thick black line in the middle of the page.


There are three possible sources of black lines on copies: the original, the scanning process and the printing process. As a general rule, if the line only appears on some documents, the source is the original. If the copier is also a printer but the lines only appear when copying, the source is the scanning. if the lines always appear, the source is a defect in printing. Since black lines can be intermittent, it is best to check all possible sources.

Faint lines on the original might be more obvious on copies. Adjust contrast and brightness settings to reduce the appearance of lines. Lines at the edges of copies can be due to an original being smaller than the copy. Set the copier to enlarge the original, so the edges of the original are outside the edges of the copy, to eliminate these lines. If the original has folds, creases or pasted-on sections, ensure the original is as flat as possible.
Clean the copier glass, using a glass cleaning product. All rollers and belts should also be cleaned, and trays vacuumed, to ensure dust is not carried onto the glass. Copiers with a document feeder move the original past a small area of the document glass. As the original moves, a single speck of dust in this area will cause a line on the copy, from top to bottom. When copying, always ensure the original is completely dry, including any correction fluid and pen markings. https://www.instantprintersupport.com/

How to make duplex copies with a Brother MFC-240C printer


The Brother MFC-240C is a well-performing multifunction color printer. There is a lot that it can do, but one limitation it has is the inability to make double-sided copies. If you need to make a duplex copy of something, you can do it manually by re-feeding the paper once you've copied the first side.

After the first side of the page has been printed, let the paper sit for a minute or so to make sure the ink has dried. Then, put it back into the paper tray on the top of the stack. Make sure the back side of the page (the side that has not been printed on yet) is facing down, and the lead edge of the page (the edge that was fed out of the printer first) is facing toward the inside of the printer, rather than toward you.

Once the paper is set, push the tray back in and print the document or image that you want to appear on the back of the page. If you are printing multiple pages, position the paper so that the page you want printed on first is on the top of the stack.

The MFC-240C was not designed for duplex printing, so you may run into some issues with it, especially when you are using very thick or very thin paper. With very thin paper, the ink may bleed through to the other side of the page. With very thick paper, you may have to let the paper sit for a longer time after the first side is printed, because the ink could take longer to set and dry.

I have a MFC7860DW, How do I set it to collate copies?


You can download the manual from here: Reference page 24: "Collate With the Collate check box selected, one complete copy of your document will be printed and then repeated for the number of copies you selected. If the Collate check box is not selected, then each page will be printed for all the copies selected before the next page of the document is printed."

Broad dark line on right edge of copied papers


If you have the black line on copies and scans but printing from P.C is fine, then your scanner is broken.

Contact your printer manufacturer for a replacement or repair.

Black line along the right side near the center when copying ONLY


first, the line are in all printing pages, or only when you make copies?,
if the line are in all printing pages, maybe your fuser has damage the fuser film sleeve,(aprox, 10-20 dlls), if only this line are when you make copies, maybe the glass in the scanner are dirty(clean and try).
i expect this solution your problem

SOLID BLACK LINE FROM LEAD EDGE TO TRAIL EDGE


"dk" means the the life black drum is over. You need to replaced the drum and blade. Or you can replaced the whole drum cartridge. The line that you are getting from one of the blades, more likely from the black drum. Pull out all the drum check if there is toner on the drums.

Copies print with horizontal lines


thin lines? spaced about 1.5 inches apart could be toner left on the drum, take the cartridge out turn it over and retract the shutter, manually turn the drum using your thumbs on the edges of the drum, do you see thin lines on the drum? sometimes something sticky gets on the drum attracting toner and then it transfers to the paper during the copy process

Problem while copying


O.K. guys,

the problem is with the smaller glass on the left.
Lift the top and look at the small glass on the left, is there a dot, whiteout, dirt etc... on there? that is what's making your lines. clean with alcohol or mild cleanser.
