Images coming out crooked when in copy mode. A hardware problem?

The MFC-640CW I use is suddenly making copies that appear crooked, despite the fact that the original (either on the glass or through the feed) is not crooked. Any suggestions? Carol G

Ensure the guide for the plain paper onto which the image is printed, are pushed up fully. It is possible that the paper is being fed into the paper feed path at an angle if the guides are nut pushed up.

1. To test, print the Help List:a. Press the REPORTS key located on the control panel.b. Press the up or down arrow key until Help list appears on the display(#2).c. Press Ok. The report should begin printing.Black lines that appear on faxes you send, images you scan into the computer and copies you make are typically caused by dirt or white out on the scanner unit. The scanner unit is the mechanism that reads in the documents that are being copied or transmitted.

Screen says unable to init and cannot find guide.

press menu then start bk copy then 4 times arrow up. Lights will flash and machine turns to maintenance mode. In case you cant see an 2 digit error code press start bk copy again.

If the error code starts with 4 the printhead is defective and needs replacement.

If you have another code displayed search code here at fixya. Most of them are explained a thousand of times...

To leave the maintenance mode press 9 then 9.
