Question about Brother MFC-8860DN All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have a BROTHER MFC- 8860DN that makes black streaks on copies

All copies come out with dark black streaks. I changed the toner and cleaned the drum with a soft cloth. It was better for a few hours then started doing it again.

If this is only happening with copies and not straight prints, it is possible that the problem is with the scanning unit. Use the soft cloth to clean the scanner area to the left side of the machine where pages are scanned when run through the page feeder. A spec of dust or other debris in this area will appear as a streak along the length of the page.

If it occurs on all prints, You may need to replace the drum or clean the fuser unit.

Drum cleaning function doesn't remove toner spots


Did you check:
1) are there wisible marks on drum - like spots, streaks,... if no, first check the copie glass if it appears when you make copies.
2) does it appears when you print too? If yes, also check the fixing unit for spots, ... , but if there is also on drum, that means that the cleaning blade is deformed on some places ( the place where the toner streaks are ). You can use some paper A4, fold it on half and ran it beetwean the drum and cleaning blade.
But if the blade is too heavily worn out, the best solution would be to replace drum unit.

Hope that I helped even a little bit.

Pull the drum/toner out and look into the machine, at the wall on your left. There's a little plastic lever there that pivots to detect a new toner cartridge. Sometimes the lever gets sticky; wiggle it to free it up. If you feel brave enough to remove the outside cover of the machine on that side, you can put a dab of grease on the lever's pivot.

Poor print quality from Brother MFC-8860DN


Replace the drum. The drum is failing.
When you replace the drum open the front door of the machine where thr drum and toner is.
Hit the clear/back button. Press 1
That resets the drum count after you replaced the unit.
