Re: broken glass

I would return it back to ebay. You can not just buy glass and the scanner will work. The scanner is put together in a vacum sealed room because if there is any debris on the glass or inside the glass it will produce black marks on the paper when you copy or send a fax. The unit may be ok to print from your pc but you will not be able to use the scanner glass at all.

If they are on the faxes that you send you need to clean the reading glass; open the cover where you place your originals when faxing and look in there and there is a thin glass that runs left to right. Clean the glass with a lint free cloth and glass cleaner with out ammonia or some rubbing alcohol.

If the lines are on your incoming faxes it is most likely from your drum. Replace your drum and that will most likely correct the problem.

Thick line when sending a fax

Open the document feeder, there should be a narrow, long scan glass underneath. Clean that glass. Sometimes whiteout (liquid paper) or other foriegn matter will stick to the scan glass causing a "shadow" (line) on faxes being sent out. Hope this helps.

Fax machine problem brother 1820c

The ADF rollers may be dirty or may even be damaged. To determine this, 1. Open the transmit door. 2. take a look at the condition and placement of rollers and sensor actuators.3. Using a lintless rag and 99% Isoprpynol, clean the rollers thoroughly. 4. Clean the scanner glass and also the white strip on the transmit door opposite the glass. 5. Do not forget to examine the final roller (paper out roller) This may be damaged or the gear or even the plastic clips that hold this down may be broken. finally make sure that the transmit door can be snapped shut properly.

If you open up the feeder door (Where your originals feed into) you will see a slit of glass going from side to side by the feed rollers. (you might need a flashlight to see it better)
On the slit glass there is probably some white out or something on the glass. All you have to do is clean the glass and this should take care of your problem.
To help you zero in on where the marks might be located, make a copy of a white piece of paper through the fax machine.
And then line up the copy that comes out with your black marks to the feeder.
This should get you in the general location.
If you have any other questions, feel free to post another question.
If I have helped you, please post a feedback and a rating.
Have a good day.
Good luck.

Lines when faxed

It's probably pen ink or white out on the scanner glass. Open up the door covering the document feeder and clean the glass.
