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

Mfc-8220 prints black bar on right side


The full page width of text is printed, but it's compressed to the left and a band of black fills the right-hand side?
This is serious. A laser printer really does use a laser to form the image. The machine uses a single laser dot, some odd-shaped lenses, and a mirror mounted on a spinning motor to send that dot across the page a few thousand times as the page passes through the machine. If everything is pushed off to one side, you have either a defective laser assembly or main board. Replacing either will be expensive.
There is one thing you ought to try. We can reset all the machine's memory, on the off chance some electrical glitch has confused it.
First, we have to put the machine into Maintenance Mode. From the normal ready state, touch thes buttons in a span of two seconds or less:
Menu
*
2
8
6
4
The machine will go crazy with alarm beeps, and if you slow down to see what's wrong, it won't work. Press the Stop button and start over. It's made to be difficult, because Maintenance Mode is dangerous. Entering the wrong numbers can seriously mess up your machine. Don't go exploring, please.
If you are in maintenance Mode, the display will read MAINTENANCE, and all the lights will flash in unison.
Functions in maintenance Mode require touching two digits. it won't wait for your to touch Enter or Start or anything else - as soon as you touch that second digit, it starts doing what that code says, so no typos on the keypad, please.
There are two stages of memory clearing. Lets' start with the less destructive one - it will clear a lot of garbage from the memory, but leave your phone number and stuff like that.
touch
9
1
and wait while it clears the memory.
When the display returns to MAINTENANCE, touch
9
9
to exit Maintenance Mode. Sit back while the machine goes through its start-up procedure, as if you'd just plugged it in. Make a copy for a quick test. If nothing has improved, go back into maintenance mode (Menu * 2 8 6 4), and enter 01 instead of 91. This will clear all memory back to the fresh-out-of-the-box condition. Exit with 99 and test. I think the problem is too serious to be fixed with a memory reset, but you might get lucky, and all you'll lose is the name & phone number programmed into the fax. Good luck.

I am tryn to download software to install brother mfc 8220 fax printer copier scanner pc fax machine. and having trouble getting right software and loaction for it. using windows xp


Assuming you're in the USA, go to brother-usa.com's download page. Select the Multi-function family, then your specific model in the box that appears, then your operating system. Agree to the software license, and you'll get a page of drivers & stuff. If you have a fast Internet connection, go for the complete package.
There may also be a program to uninstall the drivers. If you've been trying to connect & use the machine, start by unplugging it from the computer and run that uninstall program. Windows often tries to install an almost-good-enough driver, and the real Brother drivers don't play with that.
Then run the setup program for the driver package you downloaded. It will tell you when it's time to plug in the printer. A computer reboot may be required when it's done. The installation program will tell you.

3 black smudge horizontal lines on prints


Your brother can send faxes without printing the pages try your computer just you should download the driver.

You can download the driver from this link: " http://download.cnet.com/Brother-MFC-8220-USB/3000-2118_4-65318.html ".

About the lines which appear on the print, you will have to buy a Drum unit for your Brother 575, because the drum cleaning blade has quit working and there is no other way to fix this only by putting a new drum unit.

note:
the drum unit is different from the toner cartridge, but if you search good you can find them together for lower price.
