Question about Panasonic KX-FL511 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Vertical lines on the entire page

Hello,

Is there any way of cleaning the drum unit on this fax machine? I was told that the only solution is to buy a new drum unit...the problem is that they retail for more than what I paid for the original machine.

I can see dry toner right on the green roller. Is there any way of flushing it out and then start over with a new toner cartridge?

Any suggestions are very much appreciated!

Regards,

Frank

Sorry, what actually happens is that there is a drum blade, it fails which lets toner go by instead of scrapping it off the drum, which results in rings around the drum and lines on tjhe copies

so yes you do have to buy one.

good luck

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.

The ride side of my faxes and copies are black, any ideas?

1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times.
2. Return the tab and snap it into the Home position, (Caution: If the tab is not at the Home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes).
3. Reinstall the drum unit into the machine.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Plug in the power cord first, and then plug in the telephone cord.
or ask the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is with the sending machine.
Try receiving from another fax machine.
If the problem continues, call Brother Customer

Vertical lines when it prints, etc.


Vertical print problems are going to mean a drum replacement on that model. You can try to pull out the drum unit and carefully, with a lint free cloth, try spinning the drum and cleaning it off, but more than likely the coating on the drum has worn off where the vertical defect is. New part # dr-250 for that machine model..
