I would suspect that one of the fiser fingers has lost a spring or it is out of position.
Going form paper tray to exit, I also would look on the right side, just where the paper comes out of the paper feeder, there are some clear mylar ( plastic ) guides, inspect them for damage.
Lastly right where the paper feeds out, there are some small rommers that can pop out and cause a nick in the paper.
But more than anything I suspect a fuser finger, or even the roller baing bad.
The fuser is located inside the right door, on top. It is VERY HOT, you can remove it with the 4 silver phillips screws and inspect it.
If you need parts, google a business called " the parts drop". Give them a call, ask for Britt and they will have what you need...

How do I stop the test page from ALWAYS printing from my WorkCentre 7120 printer?


If I am not wrong you are asking about Banner Sheet? I guess. close all your open applications and go to Device and printers, then right click on the 7120 printer and select printing preferences, then go to advanced Tab. select + next to Paper / output. you will see (print ID on Banner Sheet) select it and go for the option Disable job ID. make your changes save by pressing ok.

I am getting a thick black line in the middle of my printed document when I use my mfc 8220


I am going on the presumption that you are getting this thick black line when printing from your computer. It can be a couple of things but firstly remove the toner/drum unit from the printer.
Check that the blue tag at the end of the top end of the drum unit ( used for cleaning the corona wire or drum unit & slides from 1 side to the other. ), is in the correct left correct position. If it is in the middle then that is what is causing this mark. It should be on the side of the drum unit where the arrows match.
If the blue slider is not in the middle then have a look at the drum & see if there is a black mark around it. If there is then you will need to replace the drum unit.
If you are only getting this mark when photocopying or faxing then there is a mark on the small piece of glass at the left hand side under thye document feeder.

2 Fan the paper well.
Push down the paper lever. Load the paper (with the lever down). Make sure the print side is toward the fax machine and the paper level is stacked below the paper mark. The feeder can hold up to 200 sheets of paper, or up to 10
envelopes.

Black line about 1 1/2 inches wide down side of faxes or copies


if your RECEIVED faxes look good, then leroyal is dead on. you will need a new CIS which stands for contact image sensor. if you have an authorized brother service center nearby, they may be able to do it for 100 to 150.00, depending on their pricing of course. if rec'd faxes are bad also, pull drum out and make sure the blue tab on top of drum is all the way to the right side, although that usually only leaves about a 1/2" black band.

3-INCH WIDE VERTICAL LINES RUND DOWN LEFT SIDE OF FAX MACHINE


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.

Xerox Phaser 8500 Error Code: 07,010,43:6209


That is a problem with the movement of the print head. There are 2 main causes of that.
1, On the left side, looking from the front, about 3/4s of the way back on the lower frame there is a 1 inch by 1 inch stainless steel print head block, There can be ink spilled over into it causint the print head not to tilt forward and back properly. That block can be removed and cleaned pretty easily. There is a spring assambly just hooked over it and that needs to come off, and you may need a pair or channel lock pliers if the block is really full of ink. Clean that block and remove as much excess as you can.
2, The Print head wiper blade may be tacked to the print head, This would occur if the machine was powered down improperly or there was a power failure.That would require removing both side covers and the ink loader, Where you insert the ink sticks. Once there you access the print head area, the blade would be between the print head and the drum.
That is the 2 most likely causes of that prpblem

RECURRING PAPER JAM - BROTHER MFC 5860 CN


I just bought the 5860 and have this issue right out of the gates. I discovered that the back lid causes the paper jam when using the bottom tray while examing with a flash light during a print job. I dislodged the back plate/lid (same lid you remove to pull paper jam out) out about 10mm and fastened the lid loosely to the back with a piece of tape on each side. The paper from the bottom tray does not slam against the back of the printer any more, thus more freedom of movement and no jams. Just successfully printed an 80 page document. You shouldn't have to do this with a new printer but I got it so cheap with all the rebates that I'm going to keep it and live with this fix. To sum up, the problem is a design flaw where the removable back plate is snapped in too tightly and contacts the bottom tray paper roller (& paper) during a print cycle. To fix you need to clear the path by pulling the back lid out slightly and taping each side with scotch tape to 'suspend'the back plate out about 10mm.a5999d3.jpg
