I have a blank line running down the left side of all my faxes and copies. I have changed the toner and installed a new drum. Still having the problem.


You most likely have toner on the roller, which should be just above or below the drum, clean this by spraying some window cleaner on a paper towel, or lintless rag, and rubbing the roller clean, make sure to get all foreign particles of roller before closing and trying to print.

Intellifax 2800 does not register new drum. I put in new drum and it is extremely light copies and is stll telling me to replace drum soon


If you replaced the drum with a new one, then a special plastic piece with slots in it will be ejected. This will reset the "Replace Drum" message. Now the light print is probably due to the toner needing replacing. When you put in a new drum, it needs new toner too. Unfortunately, most people replace the toner into the old drum, which does no good and becomes wasted. NEW DRUM NEW TONER. Now if you have replaced the old drum with another old drum, you won't get the reset done properly and the new drum won't load any toner either. Perhaps you accidentally removed the plastic sheet when you replaced the drum? Well then, find the piece and run it through the paper feed, it will then reset. Best of luck

The drum is a very sensitive part. Should not touch with bare hand, expose to light for long, etc. With what did you clean,it.

Smudges along the right side of the paper


Hi Scottmortona,

Welcome to FixYa!

I encountered this while printing my lecture notes for my students. This seems either a drum issue or the toner.

  1. Take out the toner.
  2. Ensure that the toner is evenly spread out by holding it horizontally, and tilt forward and backward.
  3. We need to ensure the toner is even.
  4. Take out the drum unit.
  5. Check are there any toner powder stuck on the sides of the drum?
  6. If so, use a soft brush and slowly brush off the toner stuck there.
  7. At the top of the drum, there is a blue notch. Slide this a few times to do a wire cleaning.
  8. Place the toner into the drum
  9. Place drum into printer now.
  10. Try printing a few pages.
Let us know if you have any problems.

Thank you for rating us.

My Brother HL 5240 has Status toner, drum and paper lights on, I bought it on 4/30/08, new toner, plenty of paper, it showed on computer: printer is off line, but it was connected with computer. Really...


The drum light will flash on my brother HL-5240 Laser Printer when printing but it continues to print just fine. Does this mean the drum needs to be replaced?

Double print or a shadow print


Unfortunately your drum unit is shot. The mechanism that cleans excess toner from the drum surface is worn out or has developed a problem. The materials needed to repair are generally not available. If this is happening then the surface of the drum is probably near the end of its usable life anyway. Save yourself a lot of grief and aggravation. Bite the bullet and buy a new drum unit. Office Depot, Staples, etc. usually offer them at about $105.
