If your received faxes look good and this only happens when you fax someone or make a copy, lift up your document feeder and you will see a glass under it that is about an 1.5" wid and runs left to right. something is on that glass. perhaps whiteout or something like that. clean that off good and you should be fine. if it doesn't take care of problem, write back.

Vertical Lines through incoming faxes and copies.


Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines
on the faxes you receive. Either your FAX/MFC's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or
the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire (see pages 13-18), or ask
the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is
with the sending machine.
Cleaning the Drum Unit
We recommend you place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of
disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1 Carefully turn the drum unit upside down.
2 Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab
from right to left several times.
3 Return the tab to the Home
position (  ) before
reinstalling the drum unit.

Getting thick black line on edge of paper on all faxes coming thru


If it is just on faxes you are receiving and not on ones you send it sounds like it may be your drum. You may have a small tool in the fax to gently rub across it and clean it. check your manual to make sure. In worst case scenario you will have to get a new drum. Look on line for your model. Other wise if it's on copies and faxes you send as well it's going to be the thin piece of glass right where the pages are being feed in that needs to be cleaned

4100 when I copy I get a black line down the middle Ok after cleaning inside top cover, but,comes back after a few copies. Printing and sending fax ok.


Try printing out a report. If the line is still there you need to use the wire cleaner on your print cartridge or if that doesn't work, replace the drum unit.

Lines and breaks on docs received by other party.


Hi
If you have lines when faxing out it cant be the drum,If you have lines with copy and receiving faxes then it can be the drum.
I think you problem is a dirty scanner glass.Check the glass and clean.

Vertical lines on copies received


Run a copy of something through your machine. IF the lines show up on your copy, and also lines on your incoming faxes, then your drum cartridge is bad.
Replace the drum cartridge with a new one and you should be back in business.

If you have any other questions, please post again.

BLACK INK LINES ON INCOMING FAXES KX-FL511


It's time to change NEW DRUM UNIT..and that's why your Toner will Not Last Longer because unnecessary toner (the black lines) will be on the copy every time the fax comes or you make a copy.
