SOURCE: My printer- Brother HL1250- is making grey streaks on the paper

More than likely the grey streaks are from dirty fuser rollers open the fuser area and insect the fuser rollers i think they should be grey take silicone lubricant and wiat ntil rollers cool down and clean with a coton cloth do not scrape with anything sharp if this does not work then you ned to remove the glass platen and clean the optics( mirror and lens with tissue and glass cleaner wen machine is not hot also insect expsoure lamp( do not touh lamps because the oil from your hands will cause the lamp to get extremly hot and burn out good luck

One other thought is there could be marks from the stripper fingers at the fuser section look for build up of toner on them if so clean with q tip and alcohol

Fuser sleeve is contaminated and needs replacing - cheaper to replace the printer.

SOURCE: streaks on printed page full length even after installing new cartridge

Check the glass (the one the paper rests on). The underside of the glass that is. This is what the light 'sees', so, it will print this!

SOURCE: Drum kits marking up and streaking the paper

I had the same problem with a 3100cn printer. Dell had a large batch of defective drum kits. They replaced 3 before we found a good one. I recommend you exchange the defective drum kits.

My Brother MFC-7420 Printer always prints black lines and splotches down the left side of my paper. This happens whether I'm scanning or printing from my PC. When I looked at my drum, it appears a


If you are seeing vertical streaks/black lines your primary corona wire is dirty and or the fax scanner may be dirty.
1)To clean the corona wire you take the drum unit and toner cartridge and place it on disposable paper to avoid spilling.
2) Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by sliding the blue tab from right to left several times.
3) Return the blue tab and snap it into the home position.
4) Reinstall the drum unit and toner cartridge.
5) Close the front cover.
Caution: if you do not return the blue tab to the home position it may repeat the black lines.

I have a 525DN Brother Printer which has started printing a line in the middle of the papers and dumping ink out of the left side of the cartridge - do you know what may be wrong?


Thin line? Print a diagnostic page (3 pushes on the go button) and try changing the toner cartridge or drum, depending of the page says.

Changed colour cartridges but it still says drum error


The "drum" is where the laser adds/subtracts an electrical charge to each spot on the drum.

The printer "throws" the powdered-ink at the drum.
The ink sticks to the "charged" spots, and does not stick to the "non-charged" spots.

Then, the printer puts a sheet of paper in contact with the drum, and the ink is transferred to the paper.

Then, the "fuser" heats the paper & ink, and "melts" the ink into the paper.

So, changing the ink-cartridges will _NOT_ fix any "drum" problem.

A white piece of paper is printing out gray....think the toner is ok as the ink is black...something need to be cleaned?


Hello,

Two things can cause this type of problem, 1 bad drum unit or 2 dirty corona wire.

HTML clipboard Below are the directions to clean the wire.
1. Open the front cover and pull out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
2. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the blue tab from right to left several times.
3. Return the blue tab and click it into the Home position.
4. Reinstall the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly in the MFC/Printer.
5. Close the front cover.

Be sure to return the sliding blue tab back to the home position next to the arrow or you will have dark streaks on your printouts.


If this does not solve the problem then you will need to replace the transfer drum in the printer. The part number for the drum is DR-400 or DR400.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Grey streaking on printed pages


Laser printers are charged using a drum which produces an electrostatic image. The drum could be unable to hold all of the 600v charge or be be scratched if the streaks are always in the same position the the drum is not holding the charge for the toner to attach to and therefore the drum is faulty and beeds to be replaced

Grey background and dark streaks


Change out the toner first and then the drum. Also be sure there is not excess toner underneath where the toner is installed. If so clean that out with a dry cloth.
