    I sent the MFC with a technician and they keep saying is the drum, also, before the checking the copies were normal, right now it prints the sheet all black!
    Do you think it could be the drum? or this is also a fusor thing?

The fuser is most likely your candidate. A drum transfers the image onto the paper, but the transfer is made with an electric charge. The fuser applies heat and pressure to bond the toner to the paper.

If the fuser rollers are worn or there's heavy buildup on them, they will cause the paper to skew, crease and/or jam.

In the case of the paper bunching up and looking like an 'accordion', if this happens at the entrance guide to the fuser assembly, you're pretty much guaranteed the fuser's either jammed or defective.

    You may well have both a worn fuser and a worn drum/developer. Having them both verified as bad and tthen changed out by a technician will most likely cure your present problems. It also sounds like the charge corona/sawtooth needs a series cleaning or needs to be replaced. Chances are there's a buildup of toner that's causing the pages to go black.

How can i make double sided copies on a brother mfc 7420 printer???


The manual doesn't say it will do double sided copies. it will copy two pages to one sheet of paper or 4 pages to one sheet of paper. you will probably have to make a copy of the document and then reload the paper back into the tray. experiment with it like put it in face down or face up then which is the top of the page. you can use a marker on a blank sheet of paper to see how it prints out.
hope this helps
