I have a Brother Intelifax 2820 that when you fax anything it puts a black line down the middle of the page. I have taken a soft dry cloth and cleanded the corona wire and that didnt seem to help.


the corona wire, which is on the drum unit only comes into play when you are receiving faxes. if i read right and its only on sent faxes, you need to clean the scan glass. that is located underneath your control panel where your originals to fax out get fed. open up your control panel and locate piece of glass that goes left to right across machine. clean that good as you probably have white out or something similar on that.

We have a Brother MFC-8840D It states that we need to clean the drum - how do we go about that? Turning the machine off and then on it now says that the toner is low. Are these two separate problems or...


t probably told you to clean the drum because it can't sense toner. I would deal with the toner issue first.

You have about 150 prints @ 7% coverage before it won't let you do anything.

The fax machine is saying remove the drum there is dust on the corona wire.


Use the corona cleaning wire to clean the dust off. Open the front cover. Remove the drum/toner unit. look on the right side of the drum portion above the toner unit for a plastic tab with a triangle arrow that points to the left. Slide this tab back and forth several times. Move the tab back to the right. Reinstall the drum/toner unit. Close the front cover.

Clean the corona wire in this manner every time you change the toner/drum.

Fax machine has a message that says "open front cover to remove the drum. Clean the corona wire located on the drum."


The fax machine instruction must be done to erase the
message. The corona wire located on the drum needs to be cleaned.

Print Quality Problem with Brother 2820 Fax


sounds like you are using generic drum and toner. try OEM (brother brand). you say copies are coming out completely gray. try printing an internal report from the control panel. if that is gray or received faxes are gray, then the problem is not in your scanner area, and i would wager you are using "generic" supplies.

dust on drum you mean? the drum is what holds the toner cartridge of your brother machine. you should clean the blue tab located on the top of the drum when you removed it from the unit. if it still doesnt clear the message,REPLACE the drum with a GENUINE BROTHER DRUM
