Brother MFC-7820N Printer--vertical lines


You need to clean the scanner glass. Also known as the strip glass. It is a 1 inch wide strip of glass that runs from the front to the back. Your documents pass over this glass when they are scanned. Some of the wax crayon probably smeared off onto the glass and now when you scan the scanner sees these marks as stationary and thus records them as solid lines. Just look into the scanner section where your documents are fed in or depending on model, some are just to the left of the large original glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

I see others had this "check cable" problem when trying to scan on the Brother MFC7820N. Has anyone found a solution? I downloaded all the manuals, but this particular problem is not mentioned in the...


scanning relates to twin drivers and interfaces, assuming the software being used is from the same manufacturer their should not be an issue with it if you reinstalled the twin drivers and software.

Scan coming out blurred on Brother 7820N Multi-Function Laser


Hello and welcome to Fixya..

If you havent already, try cleaning both the scan tray, and the glass.

That is usually the culprit ..

Also, look at the glass, sometimes over long term use, a slight condensation can form that distorts scans..

Feel free to add a comment if none of this works for you!

Bad Scan Quality Using Brother MFC-7820N Document Feeder


Look to the left side of the flatbed glass for a thin strip of glass by itself. When you scan from the glass, the document stays put and the sensor moves across the document. When you scan from the feeder, the sensor stays in that glass strip and the document moves across the sensor. See what I mean? I would check the small feeder glass for dirt or scratches from staples or other flotsam. Also not a bad idea to blow out the feeder path with some compressed air to ensure the documents is handled smoothly. Hope this helps!
