Brother printer that prints a black line down center

I have a Brother HL5250DN printer and after 10 pages it starts printing a thick black line down the center of the pages. But later when I start again, it starts clean then does the black line. Is it getting too hot? How do I fix this?

Try printing a test page to see if your ink levels are normal. Then instruct your printer to do a self cleaning, where it will clean the print heads.

Have a 2 year old brother printer HL5250DN THere are black stripes on the paper while it's printing. The printing is fine just these ugly stripes on the pages. It's worse on the legal pages than it is on...


Look in the manual and operate the cleaning cycle to clean the cartridge. If this fails, the cartridge may be getting low and require changing, but striping is usually because the cleaning cycle needs to be run. Good luck

Prints thick black lines


Hello, Andrea.

Sounds like either your printer needs a new fuser assembly (If the teflon roller gets scratched or starts to disintegrate you will get lines or black marks on the page) or you need a replacement toner.

Hope this helps.

Hello sir;The streak line from printing also should be from copy, because the line come from imaging unit, check the meter count if close to or over 50,000 then replace drum and drum blade, it will take care the problem.

Black line down middle of page


Clean the inside of the printer with a soft rag, be gentle and get as much toner up as you can, also your toner carttridge may be empty or the crum may be bad, start with a fresh toner carttridge and clean the printer out where the cartridge sits.

Black horizontal lines in printout


Seems like the drum needs changing. This is the most common cause for print problems in these printers. If using the high yield TN 6600 toner then you need to change the drum every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN 6300 toner then the drum will need replacing every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps
