This is usually cause by a broken left hinge on the adf. Lift the lid and look near the back at the hinge. If you need the part email me for pricing jtuminaro@officetechservice.com

Good luck!

I am going to assume you are using the Auto Document Feeder for when you are copying and faxing.



When you lift the scanner top (As if you are placing a single document on the scanner glass) there is a small strip of glass to the left (normally) of the main scanner glass. This is the ADF scanner location. You will find that there will be two marks on this glass at the points you get lines on copied and faxed documents. Normally this is ballpoint ink that was not completely dried when fed through the ADF or Twink (Whiteout) that was not completely dry when fed through the ADF. Using rubbing alcohol or other cleaning products of similar gender clean this mess off the glass. If it does not come off it could be actual scratches on the glass which can only be fixed by replacing the glass.

Faxes sent are being received with lines on the pages


You need to clean the glass real well, the narrow one if you fax from feeder and the big glass if you fax from flatbed. After cleaning you power off and on so it will calibrate to clean glass. Test by making a copy, the copy will look just like a sent fax will look. If you still have streaks you may need a new CIS scanner, around $60.00

Black lines in copies and fax's Brother MFC 7420


If the black lines comes when using the ADF (top feeder), try to see if you get the same problem when using the scanner glass or receiving faxes. If you don't, you simply have to clean the glass strip to the left of the a4 sized scanner glass. Wipe it with a dry cloth piece, no paper and no water/alcohol. If you see some dirt there that you're unable to simply wipe off, try to use a cotton wool to "rub" it off.

This is commonly a problem with the left hinge being broken on the lid where the adf is. Check that and if it is broken i can give you a part number.

Good luck!

Sends blank fax


Dirty scan glass

Clean slit of glass extremly well, it is a small slit rectangler section of glass before copy glass on the scanner.

Glue, Liquid paper are common finds on the glass in this area, While you have the lid up, clean white reference area (on lid directly on top of scan glass when lid is closed)
