    I have dark strikes in my sheets too. The manual says that it's a temperature problem (too cold), but I'm in Mexico, so what could it be?

    I noticed that the dark strikes are getting larger with the number of copies. And it's independent witth the screen

I had the same problem on mine.I found it was due to the vertical height of an aluminum window plate, that is attached in front of the CCD optical sensor box, this box is located inside the back aluminum enclosure.

You have to unscrew the back cover and slide it out sideways, be carefull becasue the back cover is heavy and you don't want that falling on someones toes. Also there is some strong adhesive tape holding the cover to the enclosure so you'll have to pry on it a bit to pull the tape loose.

Once you have the cover off, you will be able to see the optical sensor box that is on the far side where the two guard bars (the flat aluminum bars that hold the back panel in place) the two guard bars meet on the one side Like a V.

Right where the bars meet and the V, you should be able to see the small optical box that has a small **** on the face of it and has two small screws on each side of this **** or "window". This is the Window for the optical sensor to pick up the image it is scanning which is a reflection on a mirror that is located on the opposite side of the enclosure. This mirror is about the size of a standard classroom meter stick and it reflects the scribbles of the panaboard surface as the canvas rolls around durring the scanning phase.

If you uncrew the two small screws that are on each side of the Optical sensor window, you will notice that this Window plate will be able to slide back and forth. Adjut this window plate hight and try printing another page and see how the image looks. If the Black bars are bigger then you have moved the plate the wrong way. Readjust and try again. Once you make the proper adjustments the black bars will no longer appear.

Well, this is what fixed mine, so hopefully this will help you.

Print head is not printing seems to be clogged from non-use. Have tried test printing through several new cartridges and still not working. Can the old - dryed ink be cleaned off of the print heads?


Hi, below is from the brother website for your model. Very common for the ink heads to become clogged /dry out. You probably have done this but here it is anyway. your print head is part of the machine, so it will need to be disassembled to clean it, That can be very difficult. Try the following anyway, it might help you. also, you could try using a Q-Tip wet with vinegar water to get under to the bottom of the print heads, if you can get the head to move off its dock and then unplug it when its moved over. anyway here is the Brother link info (without pictures-see the link above if you need the pictures)
  • Print a Print Quality Check Sheet.

    1. ress the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel of the machine.

    2. Press the up or down arrow key to choose Test Print and press OK.
    3. Press the up or down arrow key to choose Print Quality and press OK.
    4. Press Color (Colour) start. The machine begins printing the Print Quality Check Sheet.
  1. Closely examine the Print Quality Check Sheet. Each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of individual blocks. The colors should appear in the following order from left to right: Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta.
  2. Compare the print quality of the Check Sheet you just printed with the three examples listed below:

    (A) One or more complete blocks of colors are missing:
    (B) Most of the short diagonal lines are missing from one or more color blocks:
    (C)Some parts of the short diagonal lines are missing from one or more color blocks:

  3. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black. Press the down arrow key or 2 or "-" to chooseNo for black with the problem.
  4. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for Color. Press down the arrow key or 2 or "-" to chooseNo for color with the problem.
  5. The display will then show Start Cleaning? Yes No.
    Press the up arrow key or 1 or "+" to choose Yes and the machine will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.
  6. When the machine completes cleaning the print head, press Color(Colour) Start. Another Print Quality Check Sheet will print.

  7. Repeat the cleaning and the quality check process following the Step 4-7.

  8. Compare the second or third Print Quality Check Sheet with the first one you printed in step1:


    • If the print quality on the first Check Sheet matched Example (A) or (B) and you do not see any improvement on the second or third Check Sheet

    • If the print quality on the first Check Sheet matched Example (A) or (B) and you see some improvement on the second or third Check Sheet but it's not perfect, repeat the cleaning and the quality check process three more times (totally five times).

    • If the print quality on the first Check Sheet matched Example (C) and you do not see any improvement on the second or third Check Sheet, repeat the cleaning and the quality check process three more times (totally five times).
    Press Stop/Exit.

How to improve print quality Cleaning the print head
To ensure good print quality, the MFC will regularly clean the print head. You can start the cleaning process manually if needed. Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you get a horizontal line in the text or graphics on your printed pages. You can clean Black only or three colors at a time (Cyan/Yellow/Magenta), or all four colors at once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink unnecessarily.
Caution
Do NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause permanent damage and may void the print head’s warranty.
1 Press Ink.
2 Press or to select Cleaning.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press or to select Black, Color or All.
Press Menu/Set.
The MFC will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished, the MFC will go back to standby mode automatically. If you clean the print head at least five times and the print has not improved, call Brother Customer Service (see Brother numbers on page i).
Checking the print quality
If faded or streaked colors and text appears on your output, some of the nozzles may be clogged. You can check this by printing the Print Quality Check Sheet and looking at the nozzle check pattern.
1 Press Ink.
2 Press or to select Test Print.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press or to select Print Quality.
Press Menu/Set.
4 Press Color Start.
The MFC begins printing the Print Quality Check Sheet.
5 Check the sheet to see if the quality is OK by following these steps:
Color block quality check
The LCD shows:
6 Check the quality of the four color blocks on the sheet.
7 If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (Yes), and go to Step 10.
OR
If you can see missing short lines as shown below, press 2 (No).
The LCD will ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors.
OK Poor
Is Quality OK?
1.Yes 2.No
Black OK?
1.Yes 2.N
8 Press 2 (No) for Black or three colors
with a problem.
The LCD shows:
Press 1 (Yes). The MFC will start cleaning the print head.
9 After cleaning is finished, press Color Start. The MFC will start
printing the Print Quality Check Sheet again and then return to
step 5.
10 Press Stop/Exit.

Middle of screen doesn't print


I just had the same problem and believe it or not the printer was not latched closed properly on one side! The fault indicator was not showing 'P' so it would appear that the printer was latched closed properly but alas I checked several times and found that the printer could be closed but from time to time would not latch closed fully on one side but presumably the micro-switch inside was still changing state and indicating that it was in fact closed properly.
