Re: no printing

A common reason for background shading is a low toner. Install a new genuine brother toner. If you have already loaded a generic toner in the drum unit, it is too late. You have damaged the drum asm. You can still buy a new 2800 with new supplies for just a little more than a new drum asm. Did you have the grey baqckground before you worked on it?

How do you print on both sides of a page??

If your printer does not have a duplex unit that allow you to print on both sides, then it is possible but a bit teadious because you have to print one page at a time.

Print page 1 and then place page 1 back into the paper tray but place the page so it can print on the other side of the page then print page 2.
Repeat for page 3 & 4 and so on.

Printing black on paper

Some of these machines will allow you to printe a grey scale test copy.
This will readjust the fax machine back to a nominal mode.
Not knowing how old or how long the machine has been serviced, background can be caused by dirty optics somewhere in the machine.
A remanufactured drum unit can cause this type of problem, (defective unit)
Competitive toner in the toner unit can cause poor copy quality.
Reinstall the old cartrige and see if the problem changes.
Not knowing if the machine has a seperate drum unit and developer housing, it would be hard to answer anything else.

Printing black shaded on complete page

Problem is usually a dirty charge corona wire. There is a cleaner on the drum unit, slide this across and back 2 or 3 times. If not, then the corona wire itself is missing or broken, change drum.

Printing problem

Are the problem prints all from the same source? If so the problem could be on the transmission end. Can you connect to your fax and print to it from a local workstation? If so print several images with dark solid patterns and see if it is actually the printhead. Try printing in cyan, magenta, yellow, and black colors to to rule out each individual printhead.

Large grey streak down center of page

It is the fuser at rear giving you grief! The upper heat roller has a teflon coating that wears away allowing toner to stick to roller and smudgin prints as they pass threw it. The fix is to replace fuser assembly, take to brother dealer to fix.

You can prove it to yourself by timing the print to stop mid way threw machine then remove print cartridge and look at paper, you should see a image is good untill it hits the fuser,( pre fused image "rubs off" paper.) If you have changed drum and toner thats all it can be. They all do it in time.

Fuser is hot bit at rear, pull out drum and look in the back with a small torch you will see upper heat roller is worn, guestimation $90 for fuser plus labour to fit.
