I had this problem and found that my wife had used correction fluid on a sheet that was put in the scanner. This left a spot on the scanner glass so it shows up on any scan. I used a cotton swab and glass cleaner and now it works fine.

My Brother MFC-7420 Printer always prints black lines and splotches down the left side of my paper. This happens whether I'm scanning or printing from my PC. When I looked at my drum, it appears a


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.

I have a brother mfc 240 printer. Lately whenever i use the auto feeder black vertical lines show up all over the paper. If i print by laying something on the glass it doesnt seem to do this. Also if i...


When you use the feeder to scan, the original is scanned across a small strip of glass on the left side, rather than using the long platen glass to scan. If you're only getting lines when you use the feeder, there is dirt or white-out or some other substance built up on that **** glass. Wiping it down with a dry lint-free cloth should probably do the trick, but if the lines are still there you might want to use a damp cloth.

Hope that helps!

Brother MFC 8220 -- paper keeps getting stuck in the drum. Replaced drum but still happening. Makes a loud noise when trying to print.


sounds to me like your fuser gear has broken. look for your exit rollers. they're right where your paper exits the machine. while watching them closely, open door, then close so that machine goes through its little warmup. if you don't see those rollers turning, chances are very good that your gear has broke.

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.

Paper Tray won't raise


The spring that pushes the paper up is no longer able to perform its job. You need to replace the tray.

Black line down the paper on copy mode. Ok in print mode.


There is most likely something on your scan glass that is blocking the scanner. Clean of both pieces of glass that are there when you flip open the ADF, or top cover. Try to copy again. If it is still there then there is either something on the scanner piece that moves back and forth to scan or one of your scan LEDs is burnt out and the scanner will have to be replaced.
