Try moving the blue slider on the cartridge end to end 10 times.

I no good, you need a new toner cartridge/drum.

I have black lines down the paper when copying and printing.


You need to open the front cover of the machine and remove the drum and toner (cartridge). On the top right there is a tab that you need to slide from right to left about 20 times, then bring back to home position.

This resolves the black lines issue.

My Brother MFC-8460N is ghosting when printing or copying.


I would contact brother directly they can guide you thru some of their codes to put in the printer and it can tell them whats going on with it. If they ask how old it is just say you purchased it 6 months ago or if it is newer just let them know.the warranty period is one year and they can replace it for you.

Ghost printing


Hi Phillip,
If you have changed the drum and toner, then check the fuser unit. The teflon coating on fuser film could be worn.

My Brother MFC-465CN is printing text with alignment off and double text.


My Brother printer MFC-465cn is doing the same thing. I have workaround / worked-around it by disabling bi-directional printing. Then print is clear. It's as if the head is shifting an irregular amount on the opposite direction, like the head is loose.

Same for copies. If I use the PC interface to make copies, I can set the copy printing to be mono-directional, then copies are clear.

No more clean copies/letters.


Take out your toner cartridge. Run the lavender tab back and forth to clean the corona wire. See if that alleviates your problem.
