You need to clean the scan glass. If you lift up the cover where the faxes feed into the the machine and look towards the front where the faxes exit, you'll see a small strip of glass. This glass may be dirty or even have a smudge on it.ie: White-Out, toner, adhesive, etc. Just clean the glass with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol, let dry and you're problem should be fixed.

Outgoing faxes ok. Faxes received have 2 white lines running down the page.


That issue really sounds like the sender may have issues with their machine. If you can copy correctly, and fax out correctly, it is not your unit.

The faxes being sent print out with vertical lines down the middle


There is a little scanner in the fax machine that reads the page so it can be sent out. You should be able to open the top, similar to changing the toner, and locate the scanner. This should have some glass over top protecting it. Just take a damp cloth and clean that piece of glass. There is most likely a small piece of dirt on the glass, but when it scans paper it looks like a big streak.

When I send a fax there is a white line down the center of the page. It does not do it when I make copies, How can I clean it or correct the problem.


Are you sure that there is no lines when you make copies?Because the scaner is used when you send faxes and when you copie, if sensor is bad or dirty lines would be wissible.
Clean it very well, with strong detergent, but in small amounts.Scratch the stains from corctour or similar...

Confirmation page needed


Press MENU - 2 4 1 then you can choose to have that feature ON or OFF. the +Image means that it will also print a copy of the first page sent so you can actually verify the document sent.

I get lines and can't read the right side of copies that I make with the 1270e. How do I fix this?


You have not specified why you can't read the right side of copies and I am assuming that the reason is because the 'lines' are covering the text. I can offer a solution to the lines issue.

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 the cause you will also find that faxes you send to other people will also have this line (although faxes you receive are not affected by this problem with your machine).

To fix the 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.

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.

Where is the scanner lamp on the brother fax 2820


the scanner is located under the control panel. lift up control panel and look for a thin piece of glass that runs left to right. that glass may have white out or some other foriegn material on it, however, this will only clean up lines on SENT faxes and copies. if you're getting lines on received faxes, your problem would most likely reside in your drum unit.

Black lines printing out on sent fax


If you make a copie and the lines are on the copie then the optics's are dirty, white out, ink or fourn oblrct on glass.

If you have clean the optics and the lines are still there then the C,C,D, needs to be replaces the part that reeds the documents.
more then what the fax is worth sorry.
