Do your incoming faxes have the same marks?
If not you might find that the scanning part of your machine has a dirty mark on the glass or that the unit has become faulty.
Try and take a copy from the machine and print from a report or any print from memory.
If you have the black lines on both then i'd suggest getting a new drum unit, if u have it only on the copy I would have a look at your scanner glass and see if there is a dirty mark on it. if not maybe call out an engineer as the scanner unit maybe faulty.
Need anymore help msg me.

2-sided scanning


HI Nada,.. Don't know what exact problem you're experiencing with 2-sided scanning. But from what I've gathered on your machine, it may not be capable.

Please find the attached software guide for a range of multi-purpose machines, including yours. Page 41 leads into that function being available on the MFC-9560. Double there and on page 130 to see if anything helps in clearing up your problem.

Good luck,
~AD

Brother MFC-7820N Printer--vertical lines


You need to clean the scanner glass. Also known as the strip glass. It is a 1 inch wide strip of glass that runs from the front to the back. Your documents pass over this glass when they are scanned. Some of the wax crayon probably smeared off onto the glass and now when you scan the scanner sees these marks as stationary and thus records them as solid lines. Just look into the scanner section where your documents are fed in or depending on model, some are just to the left of the large original glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Fax confirmation page


If you have a reports button, press it and select the user settings report. Without a button, press menu button and scroll to reports and choose user settings. This report tells you what settings you can change and where they are. Most Brother machines only have an error report setting so that it just tells you when a fax doesn't go through.

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.
