Take drum unit out, look on top and move plastic blue tab from 1 side to the other a few times. very important to make sure you replace the tab to the side it was originally on or you'll get a big, broad black band.

My brother MFC 8500 is receiving alright but everything I send out has a big black streak going down the right side of the page. Confirmation page also has big black streak.


Let me see if I got this right.

The received fax is clean but when you send one out it has a black streak on it.
Cool! So far so good.
Makes sense because for sending, the fax scans the original document and parts of the scanning area could be dirty and so on. Therefore a black streak may appear.
The same black streak would also appear when you make a copy, because the original document must also be scanned.
Logical!

However for receiving faxes, the machine uses the internal memory and the print engine only, and the same applies to printing the transaction report, which comes from inside via the print engine.
The scanner has no rol in either situation.

Now I'm lost!

Streaks of black ink down the pages of faxes


Hello.

It might be as simple as changing the ink. If still a problem, the FAX may need cleaning.

Hope this helps.

Faxed documents come out with black streaks on them


Clean the corona wire on your drum unit. It should be a blue tab on the top of the cartridge that you can slide from side to side. Make sure that the blue tab returns to the starting position (there should be an arrow on the tab that will match up with an arrow on the drum unit). If this doesn't work, replacing the drum unit should fix it. Drum units are only meant to last ~4 toner section replacements.

Papers come out with black streeks on them from my sharp FO 4450


If everything is coming out with streaks, it's most likely your cleaning blade which is part of the drum cartridge. I've also seen this from 3rd party toner. Get Sharp toner for your Sharp fax if you don't have it already. If your black streaks are only on copies and sent faxes, this indicates that your scanner is dirty. It's located where you feed your paper in. Lift this part up and you'll see a strip of glass running front to back about 1/2 inch wide. Clean it and that will get rid of lines.

Getting big black streaks though copies


OK I am guessing this is a Laser Fax or an Inkjet Fax- If it's a Laser Fax,chances are you may have a "BAD" drum and if this is a Ink jet most likely and "Leaky" cartridge.

Black streaks on paper when printing message


That green bar is the drum unit. Black streaks are indication of bad drum. Replace drum unit. Don't wait too long or it will ruin the fusing section as well from excess toner build-up. Big bucks!

Blank Streaks


streaks are caused either by the toner, drum, lamp or fuser.

If you make a copy and it does not show a streak then it was done by the person sending the fax. BUT, check this,

open door and take out toner cartridge. look for a thin glass that is on the bottom of the machine and wipe it. Toner spills will cause a black streak.
