Re: Sending and Copying Problem

It seems that it occurs because of static load on scanner.
Just unload the static load and it is fixed...

I keep getting a black line about 2 inches along the right side of the paper if copying as well any faxes sent are also getting that blac line. Brother fax machine intel 4750e

Well you said the Lines are present when you are copying and when you are sending from the fax unit. Copying and sending functions both uses the scanning unit. What you lift open the document feeder for original documents. In there you should see rollers and a glass. clean this glass with cotton swab and alcohol for left to right the entire glass. Close the unit and try copying or sending, documents should now be clean.

I have a black line showing up on my faxed documents. I have opened it up, changed the film and re- set it, but the problem persists. The machine is about 5 years old.

Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Black pages to all work

Nothing you can do. The SCANNER BLOCK is defective.

Black pages

Try to copy a document. If the copy comes out black then the the scanner is dirty. Clean the scanner glass (products on the market that clean by sending through the scanner) and try to copy again. If after cleaning the scanner, the copy is still black you have a scanner issue and the laser/scanner unit will need replacement. Best of luck and please post back with any questions or just to rate the solution.

White lines while sending/copying

Everything seems to indicate a dirty 'corona wire'. This seems to be the most common cause of vertical white lines running the length of a page when copying/sending. Below is a link to the User's guide for your machine with instructions for cleaning the corona and other care when using your fax machine. Best of luck.

2 inch vertical solid band on right side when making a copy

There is probably dirt or ink on the scanner glass, this would affect both copying and sending faxes.

Here is a link to the manual and a description on page 74 showing how to clean the glass.

Black page when copying and sending faxes.

You most likely have a bad SCANNER BLOCK. Not good!

Copying and fax sending problem

  1. Just check & clean the dust in the original feeding area.
  2. if not solved, clean the Document feed sensor or replace the same. But for this you need to open the body of the fax machine.
