Pull out the drum/toner unit and clean the corona wire. There is a slider to do that on top of the drum unit that is either blue or green. Just run that side to side and make sure you leave it in the right place (I think theres an arrow pointing to the home position). Sometimes you'll have to blow out the corona unit with a can of air if there is a lot of toner on the grid....you'll see it in that little slot. Just be careful and do it OUTSIDE cause it will make a mess if you are not carefull!

I keep getting a black line about 2 inches along the right side of the paper if copying as well any faxes sent are also getting that blac line. Brother fax machine intel 4750e


Well you said the Lines are present when you are copying and when you are sending from the fax unit. Copying and sending functions both uses the scanning unit. What you lift open the document feeder for original documents. In there you should see rollers and a glass. clean this glass with cotton swab and alcohol for left to right the entire glass. Close the unit and try copying or sending, documents should now be clean.

Leaving a wide black line in right hand side of transaction


Pop open the fax document feeder, and look for a glass strip about 1cm wide, that runs from left to right across the machine.
You will probably see a few spots of dirt, or more commonly, a blob of white liquid paper stuck on the glass, on the side of the machine that corresponds to the black lines on your fax.
Clean this glass strip gently, using a soft cloth dampened with a mild detergent. I often use diluted windex. You may need to scrape liquid paper gently with your fingernail. Close the cover.

Next, put a blank sheet into the feeder and make a copy of the blank page. If you have cleaned it properly, the copy will be blank as well. If you still have a line, align it with the feeder and use this as a guide to show you where the glass may still have some **** stuck on it.

Good luck!

Sent faxes have the right side cut off and black lines on side of paper, have cleaned white bar and glass cover....help


Sounds like the scanner section (the glass **** part in the original scan section). These are notorious for going out and sending partial black or all black pages. Try making a copy and see what it looks like, but if it's sharp lines on (across) sections of the copies, then that's what it is. It's about a $40 part and easy to change. Just lift the "tab" on the holders right side....slide the unit to the right...lift up the left section...pull it out and unplug it. Be carefull not to let the connector fall into the slot it came from or you'll have to disassemble it further or fish it out. Replace in opposite directions.

Black line down one side of paper


Lift the auto feeder cover and clean the narrow glass that the originals are scanned across...sounds like you have some dirt there -maybe correction fluid? That's the most common.

Black line about 1 1/2 inches wide down side of faxes or copies


if your RECEIVED faxes look good, then leroyal is dead on. you will need a new CIS which stands for contact image sensor. if you have an authorized brother service center nearby, they may be able to do it for 100 to 150.00, depending on their pricing of course. if rec'd faxes are bad also, pull drum out and make sure the blue tab on top of drum is all the way to the right side, although that usually only leaves about a 1/2" black band.

BLACK INK LINES ON INCOMING FAXES KX-FL511


It's time to change NEW DRUM UNIT..and that's why your Toner will Not Last Longer because unnecessary toner (the black lines) will be on the copy every time the fax comes or you make a copy.

Faxes I send are reduced in size and have series of black line down right hand side.


If its reduced in size during transmit or copy then simply place a letter size document in the feeder and close the two sliders up to the sides of the paper. If you don't close the slider up to the paper it will go into auto reduction
