Black lines or smudge marks\running down the prints

I am trying to print pictures on my Sharp AR-M450N machine and there are two very noticeable black lines going down the page, this is from printing not copying so its not streaks on the glass. How can I fix this without calling a service rep.? black streak or smudge printing down whole page on brother MFC 6800 was told to clean the print head; how do I go about that?

Hello sir;The streak line from printing also should be from copy, because the line come from imaging unit, check the meter count if close to or over 50,000 then replace drum and drum blade, it will take care the problem.
The brother printer you need to replace imaging unit( drum unit).

Have a weird problem on a Sharp AR m455n the screen stuck on the sharp logo any ideas?


Sometimes this would happen when a bad print job got sent to the machine. I'd make sure to delete all of the print jobs in everyone's print queue on their computer then reboot the machine to see if it comes back up.

My Sharp Copier AR-5320 print black and white horizontal parallel lines on the documents.


Check for scratches on the drum surface. If you have ran a lot of copies on there, its a good time to get it serviced. It could be the cleaning blade on the drum as well.

Black Lines


Do the black lines only show up when useing the adf???? Or do they show up on both the adf and the copyboard glass??? If it is only when using the adf...... The fix is easy.... you have to clean the smaller piece of glass that is to the left of the copyboard glass with windex or rubbing alchola. If it is with both you may need a new drum and blade or a new ufr... Good Luck

How Brave is Jan?

Doubt it be the fuser(100 000life), "just magenta dots".... fuser would be "all smudged" or "black marks" , "the print rubs off" , "paper is creasing or jamming"

Can prove it by stopping a print (open door) when paper is1/2 way threw machine, you need to stop it before it goes threw the hot bit, so you can tell if the hot bit (fuser) puts the marks on the paper.

Transfer roller one would expect to effect whole print Smudged/Faint,uneven density

It will be the imaging unit ( 30 000 pagelife Ouch$ ) or possible leaking toner (if aftermarket)

Remove imaging unit and inspect film you should find image of lines, dots are usually chips or sticky stuff on drum surface, carefull no oily human fingers on surface please.

When stopping machine mid print and perfecting your timing, pull out the imaging unit and look at replica of your print notice if marked and where.

Hope this helps
