In the past week, our printer has started printing a black line on the left side of the paper (the length of the whole paper). It also folds the top right corner of the page every once in a while. Please help!!

For the black line check the toner cartridge roller (usually covered by a movable flap) to see if there is a black line on it. If not, then check the transfer belt (looks similar to a conveyor belt) for a line (probably not black in color, possibly white or grayish). If either of these parts have a line your best option is to replace that part. You could try cleaning VERY gently with a dry lint-free cloth but this may only clear up a little of the issue.

As for the fold, try running a paper path test, usually found under test, information, or diagnostic menu option on the printer itself. Try to find anything in the paper path that may catch the paper and cause it to fold.

Hope this helps!

My printer has started printing a black line down the edge of the paper?


Remove the laser print cartridge, shake it lightly, and place it back into your printer. That should solve the problem.

My HP 6500 Printer jammed and now everything it prints has a line running down the side. Each segment is about 1/2 inch long and runs down the whole page.


This type of line is cause by a scratch or smudge on the toner cartridge's image drum. You will need to replace the toner cartridge.

I have black smudgy lines going down the left hand side of my printed copies. What do I do?


1. Check the toner level, when it's low the quality of the prints becomes poor.
2. If toner level is good, clean out the printer inside. The best way is to buy an air compressed can, get the printer in an open space and blow any toner from the inside of the printer. Give it a good clean as there might be residual toner inside that make the poor quality.

My Brother HL1230 printer prints with whole lines of text missing several times on a page and gets worse by missing more lines if printing several pages. It has a new toner cartridge. How can I sort this...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Pages printing blank


Resolving white, light lines or streaks (eliminate light stripes)

From the printer, print the Troubleshooting Print Quality Pages.
With Troubleshooting highlighted, press the OK button.
Scroll to Print Quality Problems by pressing the Up or Down Arrow button. Press OK.

Scroll to Troubleshooting Print Quality Page. Press OK.
Evaluate the Light Stripes Test page for missing printhead jets (missing cyan, magenta, yellow or black color bars).

Clean the maintenance unit's wiper blade and empty the waste tray. A dirty maintenance drawer wiper blade can cause white lines and weak or missing printhead jets. Using a clean lint-free cloth or a paper coffee filter, gently clean the blade with a wiping motion across the entire length of the wiper blade.
