    Hi, Wtart:

    Thanks for your help. I tried what you suggested and after I entered *286482, the screen shows the number for couple of mintunes and back to the sleep mode. It didn't display any code on it. just back to the sleep mode just the way it should be.

    Please advise.

    Thanks

    I have the brother fac all-in-one #665cw with the same problem but the line is towards the middle of the paper pls help

    If you have cleaned the scanner glass and you still get the same thing, there is a possibility that you may have scanner malfunction.



    To verify, try this: Access maintenance mode once again by pressing Menu * 2864, after it enters maintenance mode press 82. Reply back to me with the code that shows on your display. I will then respond to you with the status of your machine.

The sensor-bar/imaging unit is not lighting up all the way. Maybe a loose plug at either end of the cable; the bar end- open and remove the scan feed for access, or underneath- remove bottom covers. If no loose cable, the bar has failed- save your drum and toner and buy a used/refurb machine since they want the same price for a new imaging sensor bar. {-O

If you are seeing vertical streaks/black lines your primary corona wire is dirty and or the fax scanner may be dirty.
1)To clean the corona wire you take the drum unit and toner cartridge and place it on disposable paper to avoid spilling.
2) Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by sliding the blue tab from right to left several times.
3) Return the blue tab and snap it into the home position.
4) Reinstall the drum unit and toner cartridge.
5) Close the front cover.
Caution: if you do not return the blue tab to the home position it may repeat the black lines.

Brother MFC-8220 leaving ink on printed docs. How do you clean that?


That's usually a bad toner cartridge that dumps too much toner per print. Buying a new toner cartridge should fix it. You may need to wipe up a little spilled toner inside. Just use a dry cloth, and be very careful around the little black levers that stick up to detect the paper.

There are other manufacturers who sell toner for these, but some of them have toner inside that's so hard to stir, it breaks the gear in the machine. That makes a very expensive repair for the little money you save on generic toner.

Brother MFC 8220 all-in-one fax prints with a vertical line


First guess is you have a bit of dirt (often white-out from people scanning corrected paper that's not quite dry) stuck on the fax scan window. This should be described pretty well in your user manual (which you can download online from brother.com).

Its also possible that there is dirt (typically loose toner) on the laser scan window (there's a laser that shines through it to get the image pattern on the drum). That window is often along the bottom of the unit under the drum/cartridge (take the cartridge out and look). The Brother manual I've seen seems to ignore this possibility.

Print streaks DO NOT mean cartridge drum replacement in many cases !! On brother Intellifax or MFC or other laser copier/printer/fax, keep in mind that either the fax/copy scan window OR the laser scan window can get dirty. If the fax scan window is dirty, you see streaks on outgoing faxes and copies (but NOT incoming faxes). If the laser scan window is dirty, you see streaks on all prints (copies, faxes, print-from-computer).

Note also that when transporting/moving some laser copier with the toner cartridge inside, the toner can get out and make a big mess inside (including getting the laser scan window dirty). An air compressor can be usefull to blow it out. And sometimes using alcohol to clean is a BAD idea (maybe incompatible with plastic and rubber parts). A damp rag is probably fine.

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.
