Brother MFC-6800 1. Prints with 3/8" blank vertical line down the entire page; 2. Prints with a couple of 1/16" blank vertical lines down the entire page; 3. Prints with some gray shadow...


This solution is unconventional but it worked for me. The black roller on my MFC had irregularities on it and was creating horrible printouts. I pulled out the drum and cartridge and cleaned the large black roller. I used furniture polish to make the roller very smooth. Now it prints really nice.

there might be a problem with the encoder: remove it, observe it closely with a magniying glass, and you have to see a vertical lines pattern all along the enconder, without no blurs or missing or erased parts on it. Try to clean it with alcohol and a cloth but be careful no to erase the patterns i described early. If there are missing lines in the pattern you'll need to replace.

What is the encoder? a strip of semitransparent plastic that goes in the back of the cartridge carriage.

A black vertical line is on each copy.


Try the 6500 driver. I have seen that allow text print but no graphics. If line disappears, reinstall 7680 driver. If line comes back, contact HP about updated drivers, check their website OR try to get your money back. I have never had luck with this series of AIO.
Good luck.
