If the black lines comes when using the ADF (top feeder), try to see if you get the same problem when using the scanner glass or receiving faxes. If you don't, you simply have to clean the glass strip to the left of the a4 sized scanner glass. Wipe it with a dry cloth piece, no paper and no water/alcohol. If you see some dirt there that you're unable to simply wipe off, try to use a cotton wool to "rub" it off.

I am getting a light duplication on my copies half


The duplication problem can be either the drum or the fuser. Most likely your drum needs to be replaced. If you can measure the distance between the first print and its duplicate I might be able to help more.

thanks adi

Getting a line on copies - not on faxes.


If the line is present on everything you print out it is most likely a scratch on the drum.

Check your owner's manual, and there's one in the install disk. It will show you where there are electric contacts inside where the drum is. You may have to take the drum out to see them. You're supposed to clean them with isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. Don't get alcohol on anything else.

Won't fax


You have to get your answering machine and your fax to play nice. Read the instructions for both. I think I have my answering machine to pickup at three rings, and the fax to pick up at five. Don't have the fax answer first. Don't have both machines answering at the same number of rings.

Vertical lines on photocopies/faxes


The MFC-7420 Manual recommends cleaning the scanner glass and white plastic bar above it with isopropyl alcohol. Page 11-22 has a diagram.

I am having a similar problem but cleaning it did not work. But try that first.
