Re: fax machine brother 885mc

What type of line is it?

White Line: clean the glass above the scanner unit. a common problem with this is that tip-ex dries on it when not letting the tipex dry fully before sending/copying

Black Line: This could be a number of thisg: Cartridge, Fuser, Dirt on the laser unit. If you have a spare cartridge lying around even if its near empty try that and see if you get the same problem. If its still showing a line then i suggest using a can of compressed air to clean the inside. If a toner has leaked then sometimes it finds its way onto the lens of the laser unit.

Hope this helps

1- did you check the glass?
2- There is also a white metal plate opposite of the glass, if it has a black dot or is dirty it will give you black lines.
