Scanner must be cleaned. Unplug the machine, close the document support and the document
tray and then open the top cover. Clean the flat white plate and the
glass strip below the bar with isopropyl alcohol on a lint-free cloth.

Why when the fax machine prints is some of the ink lighter than the rest?


It sounds like the print head(s) is clogged and needs cleaning. Another potential problem is the wrong ink or a defective cartridge. They ARE different. If you refill the cartridges be sure the ink is compatible with the printer.
Often simply running the built in 'head cleaning' test will clear out the partial clog.

Stripes all over page


one or more of the cartridges will most probably be out of ink, make sure all cartridges contain at least a 3rd of ink and if they do then perform a head clean followed by a nozzle check, if the nozzle check print is not perfect then do another head clean nozzle check & repeat the process until you get a perfect print on the nozzle test pattern.

If that is not the issue then I suspect driver corruption and you will need to un install then re install your printer drivers

Faded Stripe in the middle of the page


You need to clean the drum When I was working for the City There was the same problem with the Laser printers. Check the Manuel and see if there is a page on cleaning the print drum on your machine. Also you may try Talking the cartage out cleaning there as well It seems you are picking this up form somewhere after the print My Guess would be the print drum? You may also have to replace the drum as well. I am guessing that this is a laser printer? if not then there are other solutions.

My brother fax machine - only receives black pages


do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.

- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).

Hope this will put your Brother on the track

No not yet,the problem is the cartridge,sometimes even new cartridges might have a dry printhead

If the color cartridge doesn't print the color bars on the alignment page (either, redish pink, yellow or blue) then the alignment process will not finish. Same for the black. If the black cartridge is printing ok, then replace the color cartridge and try this again...

Black stripes ove the page


Try cleaning your ink nozzles or ink jets. It sounds like you have a plugged nozzle or two. Your printer program should have maintenance options that allow you to test for plugged nozzles and clean them.
In control panel, open the printing/fax icon, right click on your printers icon, left click properties, then on the bottom of the page the panel that opens you will see a button that says printing preferences, and that should open your print program.

Deteriorating Print Quality


This is Maltesecross. Turns out that the faintness of my printed pages was in fact due to a low ink cartridge, even though some pages printed out fine and others half-good. Eventually, all pages turned faint, and upon re-installing the driver, I got a low-ink warning (the first one ever). Putting in a new ink cartridge solved the problem for me.
