Question about Brother MFC 7420 All-In-One Laser Printer
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.

Testimonial: "This has been extremely helpful .. many thanks"
SOURCE: Wrong ink in slot
Hold down the menu key. While still holding the menu key, unplug the machine and plug it back in. Do not let go of the key until the machine reboots and the screen says "maintenence". Hit the following keys: 7, 6, 4,black start. The machine will then go into "power purge" or deep clean mode for about 5-7 minutes. When complete hit: 99 to get out of maintanence and reboot. Be sure to have extra ink cartidges on hand as it does use up a lot of ink but this process works the best every time when the printer wont print

That's usually a bad cartridge, but can be from the wire not being cleaned by the slider, or a worn drum. If it's close to time for the drum to be replaced, I'd start there. The number of pages between drum changes is not a hard rule, but a generality. Drum wear depends on paper used, humidity, OEM or remanned cartridges, total page coverage, etc...
