2" black band prints on right-side of every page

print a report, any report, from your control panel. if it looks good and your band is only on copies and transmitted faxes, that would be your Contact Image Sensor going bad. its located under your document feeder and looks like a sinny piece of glass that runs left to right.

My brother MFC 8500 is receiving alright but everything I send out has a big black streak going down the right side of the page. Confirmation page also has big black streak.

Let me see if I got this right.

The received fax is clean but when you send one out it has a black streak on it.
Cool! So far so good.
Makes sense because for sending, the fax scans the original document and parts of the scanning area could be dirty and so on. Therefore a black streak may appear.
The same black streak would also appear when you make a copy, because the original document must also be scanned.

However for receiving faxes, the machine uses the internal memory and the print engine only, and the same applies to printing the transaction report, which comes from inside via the print engine.
The scanner has no rol in either situation.

Now I'm lost!

Why our fax sending and receiving solid black

Its a problem with scaner unit. Reports are being printed out, and do not pass trough scaner, because of thath report is Ok.

If the fax is still under warranty, go to warranty provider service.

Next time dont buy "kids toy" for fax machine. Try laser Canon Fax L140.

Canon i-sensys fax-L100

The machine keeps in memory only reports of faxes sent or received until the page is full.When the report page is full, the earliest fax is removed to make way for the most recent. Therefore if you sent enough faxes after 4 Apr 08 to fill a page, there will be no record.

It sounds like the CIS (scanner) has failed in both machines. Its no generally not a common problem. I would change one every six months if I was lucky.

It may point to something in your environment. I have have seen rust build up on the contacts of the scanner cause this problem. So if you have high moisture or are close to the ocean this maybe a problem.

Black pages when making a copy or printing something

Have you tried both drum and toner supplies? cause it sounds like a drum fault, if you have tried a new drum and toner, and it is doing it when printing internal reports, receiving fax's and copying then you have a tecnical issue to do with charge and this would likely render machine unecomical to repair (unless you can find a bad contact with drum on machine). If it receives faxs clearly but copys black then it is different issue (ie optics).
