On the drum unit that you put your toner inn, There is a blue or green slide lever move the slide back and fourth 10-15 times. If you have some van air blow that area out ( F.Y.I. if you do this some toner will fly out ) if this does not take care of it the drum unit my be bad,

do a 1/2 print test. copier something with a lot of print. open front cover when the paper is 1/2 way through the machine remove drum. Look art the paper and the green drum if the marks are on the paper & drum then the drum is bad. If not the fuser asm is bad, the part that gits hot when melting the toner on the paper,

Some lines are missing when receiving faxes


Horizontal or vertical? Or do you mean lines of text?
Did you try to copy a document? If the copy is fine, then the fault is on the sending side, or there are severe transmission errors.
If the copy exhibits the same faults as the received faxes, then something is wrong with the printing part of your fax, and solving the problem will depend on the printing technology used (inkjet - clogged heads, need cleaning, or empty ink, needs replacing etc.)

3 black smudge horizontal lines on prints


Your brother can send faxes without printing the pages try your computer just you should download the driver.

You can download the driver from this link: " http://download.cnet.com/Brother-MFC-8220-USB/3000-2118_4-65318.html ".

About the lines which appear on the print, you will have to buy a Drum unit for your Brother 575, because the drum cleaning blade has quit working and there is no other way to fix this only by putting a new drum unit.

note:
the drum unit is different from the toner cartridge, but if you search good you can find them together for lower price.

3-INCH WIDE VERTICAL LINES RUND DOWN LEFT SIDE OF FAX MACHINE


Do your incoming faxes have the same marks?
If not you might find that the scanning part of your machine has a dirty mark on the glass or that the unit has become faulty.
Try and take a copy from the machine and print from a report or any print from memory.
If you have the black lines on both then i'd suggest getting a new drum unit, if u have it only on the copy I would have a look at your scanner glass and see if there is a dirty mark on it. if not maybe call out an engineer as the scanner unit maybe faulty.
Need anymore help msg me.

Yeah, pretty much s(****). That message means the polygon mirror in the laser unit is not spinning up.

If you want to try to fix it, it's a square black box under the top covers. You can take it apart and oil the mirror shaft.
