Blank Streaks I've been receiving faxes with streaks down the page. Sometimes black streaks and other times blank steaks. I have changed toner cartridges and I'm still unable to read the fax.

Re: Blank Streaks

Streaks are caused either by the toner, drum, lamp or fuser.

If you make a copy and it does not show a streak then it was done by the person sending the fax. BUT, check this,

open door and take out toner cartridge. look for a thin glass that is on the bottom of the machine and wipe it. Toner spills will cause a black streak.

Vertical Lines through incoming faxes and copies.

Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines
on the faxes you receive. Either your FAX/MFC's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or
the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire (see pages 13-18), or ask
the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is
with the sending machine.
Cleaning the Drum Unit
We recommend you place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of
disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1 Carefully turn the drum unit upside down.
2 Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab
from right to left several times.
3 Return the tab to the Home
position (  ) before
reinstalling the drum unit.

First, make a copy of something to determine if your machine is at fault.

Move the blue slider on the drum cartridge back and forth 10 times.

Black vertical streaks on faxes & copies

On top of the toner/drum cartridge there should be a blue slider, move back and forth 10 times.

If no fix, you need a new toner cartridge.

SF-560R. When receiving and sending Faxes

needs a new toner cartridge probably but the fuser rollers may be damaged as well usually if the lines are indented into the paper that means its the fuser roller if they just appear strait down the page then its the toner cartridge

Black streaks on the fax

Yes it does, the rubber blade that cleans the drum is not doing its thing properly, hence leaving your mark, pull the drum unit out and expose drum by pulling back the cover underneath it, you should see your mark on the drum, don't touch drum with fingers or brush/clean it, it is photosensitive too so keep away from light for any period of time.
