3 black smudge horizontal lines on prints

I am getting 3 black smudge horizontal (its kind of 2-3 mm thick at the left & right borders and gradually thins out toward the center & again gradually thickens towards the right hand side border) lines on my printouts . I have a scanned image of these pages I wish i could upload these here for your reference. What could be the problem ?
Another question : Can I fax thru this machine without having to print the material first & then fax it, like lets say from my computer via the USB cable is it possible to fax ?

Your brother can send faxes without printing the pages try your computer just you should download the driver.

You can download the driver from this link: " http://download.cnet.com/Brother-MFC-8220-USB/3000-2118_4-65318.html ".

About the lines which appear on the print, you will have to buy a Drum unit for your Brother 575, because the drum cleaning blade has quit working and there is no other way to fix this only by putting a new drum unit.

note:
the drum unit is different from the toner cartridge, but if you search good you can find them together for lower price.

My hp printer 1320 has horizontal thick black lines and I have cleaned inside and out. How do I get rid of them. New cartridge is in also.


that is usually a sign that the Drum has a burned out spot. it comes out exactly the same distance, which is the circumference of the drum. replace drum and replace the black sponge roller (transfer) under drum.

Clean the nozzles, align the print heads, turn it off for about an hour. You may need to do this twice, but it works for me.

Screen border


You are probably in the "3:2" ratio print setting. This is accessed through the "F" button, under image quality. The 3:2 is a ratio of height to width which corresponds to a 4x6 inch print. The other settings are approx. 4x5.33 inches in h to w ratio. Just change the quality setting to the larger megapixel settings and the bars will disappear.

VERTICAL PRINT LINES


Check the front paper exit rollers for fit and alignment also the paper deck guides close to the planten area, if the printer is dropping print vertically down one side of the page, this can be caused by debris or anything that lifts the caridge assy the slightest bit, also check the print head seating and ribbin cable for proper alignment
