    Is a Brother MFC-665CW

    The lines are verticle

  • fasham Dec 07, 2008

    There are only lines when you photocopy using the lid part and on sent/ received faxes. We do not use it as a printer with our computer so I am not sure about that

    Let me be sure I understand you. If you print there are lines. If you fax does the receiving fax machine also get lines?

    What model is your unit? Are the lines horizontal or vertical?

MAKE SURE YOUR BROTHER MACHINE IS THE DEFAULT PRINTER

If the printer driver is not set as "default printer", you can not print. Make sure your Brother machine is set as default printer. If your brother machine is not set as default printer, set it as default printer.

  1. Click Apple Menu and choose System preferences..., click Print & Fax, Print & Scan or Printers & Scanners.
  2. Choose from pull down menu of "default printer".

CHECK THE PRINTER STATUS

Choose brother machine's icon and click "Open Print Queue..." then check the printer status.

The Resume or Resume printer icon which is surrounded by red lines is displayed in printing when the printer is out of paper or the printer is turned off and on. Click Resume or Resume printer.

If the other error message is displayed on Print Queue, check if the LCD display or LED indication of your Brother machine is not showing some error. If an error is displayed, go to the Troubleshooting section and find a solution.


REGISTER THE PRINTER ICON AGAIN

  1. Choose your printer icon.
  2. Click [-] button to delete the printer icon.

  1. Click [+] button to register the printer icon again.
In spite of if you click [+] button, the brother machine is not displayed, then the brother machine is not recognized.

If you use the printer via USB connection, reconnect the USB cable or restart the Macintosh or your brother machine.

Brother mfc-7840w won't receive fax


The first thing that I would try multiple people to ask them to fax you.Sometimes the 2 machines don't "sync".This is a toll free fax test number that I always use to check my machines..1-888-473-2963.Just write the words "FAX TEST" in large letters on a blank sheet of paper..fax it to that number...leave the line open...you should get a fax back in about a minute.If you get a fax back...your machine is fine...let me know if this was helpful....thanks.

Brother (MFC-7340 FAX, Scan, Print) - Can send FAX...


Be sure to have a noise filter on the ADSL line so the line quality is good enough to send and receive faxes.

Line on printout from scans and copies


Clean the glass AGAIN. I had this issue for weeks. Drove me NUTTTTS! Because I to cleaned the glass. But guess what... not well enough. On your glass there is a tiny .. maybe the tiniest of tiny.....speck somewhere. that causes this line. Trust me I did everything you did and I just knew it was the drum or something. But it wasn't. Sure fire test. Have someone fax you something directly to the machine. (you need something that doesn't pass over the glass) If it prints out fine .. no line... there is a speck on your glass!!! And anything copied, faxed or scanned from your unit will have that line. Ofcourse you have already done half the test yourself if you print something from your computer and dont see the line. Because a print would not pass over the glass either.

Printer printing in with stripes


You can try to perform a power purge, do it by the following:
  • Enter maintenance mode. Either with starting your machine with Menu button down, or by pressing Menu, 2, 8, 6, 4 quickly. The fax/copy/scan buttons should flash/be lit.
  • Press 7, 6.
  • Press 3, the machine should now say something like "POWER_P" or "P_PURGE"
  • Press Mono/Black start, the machine should now say "cleaning".
  • When it's done, the display should say Maintenance, and you can leave this service mode by typing 9, 9.
You can now try printing a test page again, the result should hopefully be better.
Be noted however, that this purge takes ink from your cartridges, but it's more likely to solve the issue then just trying to do more "regular cleaning".

RE PRINTING OUT AN IMAGE FROM MY BROTHER MFC-215c PRINTER


Neither nor do I press any of these buttons because you can print by help of the photo assistant of windows which will give you a hand.
Simply right click the picture on your pc and click printing. The assistenat will lead you thru the settings. You only have to make sure that your mfc is the chosen as the printer AND you havte to click the printer properties afterwards. The brother printer properties will let you choose the paper size (simply click the offered sizes and have a look at the left side of the window where a small pic can be seen. Beneath the pic you will find the explanation for the choosen setting e. g. borderless/ 4x6 inch etc.) choose the right paper like glossy for photo paper. When done click OK and leave the properties. Click further through the windows assistant and choose the resolution of the picture. Click OK and machine will print the desired pic ;-)

BTW you can do some very smart thing:
print a poster of 2x2 A4 or 3x3 A4 sheets of paper. You can set this size within the printers properties.

Have a look at the manual for further info ;-)

Receiving faxes


First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.

'Speckled' Printing


Do you have the owners manual? Did you cancel the document from the computer and turn the printer off for at least 30 secs. The speckled print and lines are usually caused by a defective toner or worn drum. Usually a drum will last for 10 thousand or more cycles. But sometimes prematurely wear out. Make sure you are absolutely using a genuine Brother OEM supply. Generics have a high failure rate. This is not a heavy duty printer. When you need a drum and toner together, it will be just as cheap to buy another low end Brother printer.
