Since you just changed the toner, more then likely it's going to be a defective toner. To test this you can either reinstall the old toner and try that and the lines should go away. If you don't have another toner to try, pull that toner out and open the shutter that exposes a metalic looking roller, If this is nice and clean then it's good and more then likely it will be a fuser issue but if you can see the lines on the drum then you know it's defective and you should be able to get a replacement from where ever you bought it... Hope this helps out, please mark it a fixya if this helped...

Bad toner cartridge? Wide white line down center of print


If you have a Brother color mfc, it sure sounds like a defective cartridge.
Brother machines do not perform well with generic or rebuilt cartridges and really have problems when you mix generic with Brother toners. It also voids any remaining warranty. Send it back. Good Luck.

Brother MFC 8500 print issue


Hi-

Try cleaning the glass part with a glass cleaner solution with a damp cloth, but if you need instruction how to clean the inside part of it, suggesting you consult a technician or certified servicer for the product to avoid further issue. thanks for using Fixya!

I have a 525DN Brother Printer which has started printing a line in the middle of the papers and dumping ink out of the left side of the cartridge - do you know what may be wrong?


Thin line? Print a diagnostic page (3 pushes on the go button) and try changing the toner cartridge or drum, depending of the page says.

A black line is printed down the middle of pafe


The problem may be from either from the toner cartridge or the settings of the printer. change the toner first and see whether he problem still persist and also make sure that the settings of the printer on your system is ok, if the problem still persist after doing all this then it implies that you need to service your printer.

Vertical black line on all print outs


1) Check the cartridge. Look at the egg color drum and see if there is any built up toner. If there is then wipe off with soft cloth and reinstall.
2) Does this happen when coping from the flat bed and the doc feeder at the top?
If it it's only from the top then there is a glass lense that might have white out on it.
This is common when using white out and not letting it dry long enough.
To get to the lense it my be tricky but if the top of the feeder open a little from the top pop it open and
the glass is a thin 1/4 strip. Wipe it clean then try again. Hope this helps. Boats
