SOURCE: Thick Black Line on my copies and faxes

Can't image it being anything but scan glass, if prints are fine, are you sure you cleaning scan glass(inside of where originals are fed)?

If so then scanner lamp faulty, but I've never come across it myself on this model.

SOURCE: wont print anything

Move the ink cartridge carriage (the printhead) to the middle of the printer like you're going to change cartridges.  Take out all the ink cartridges.  There should be two black springs on either side of the printhead.  Remove these and the printhead should pop out.  Clean the nozzels (the little parts that squirt out ink) and reassemble.

If this doesn't work, then you'll have to replace the printhead.

SOURCE: Bold black lines across the paper when printing,scan or copy not on faxing

I realise this is probably too late for you Janet and you will have bought a new drum unit by now or replaced the printer! The three lines appeared on my print-out from a new drum I installed and after investigation it transpired that there was some toner residue that had dried on the drum (from testing at manufacture stage probably) and reprinted three bold lines on a sheet of A4. The solution is to use a soft piece of cloth and rub the lines off the drum through the gap at the front of the drum unit. The drum can be rotated by turning the gear cog on the side, then once the reside has been removed from the drum and it is clean, the lines will have disappeared. I wouldn't use any solution on the drum, just gentle rubbing should suffice.

Brother MFC8840D only 4 rings before fax pickup?


The TAD (TELPHONE ANSWERING DEVICE) must answer within four rings (the recommended setting is two rings). The MFC cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has answered the call, and with four rings there are only 8 to 10 seconds of CNG tones left for the fax ?handshake?. message. do not recommend using the toll saver feature on your external answering machine if it exceeds five rings.

This is a multifunctional unit: it copies, prints, faxes and scans. There are three green buttons listed as "FAX", "COPY" and "SCAN". You need to press COPY if you want to make copies, since the default setting is FAX. The user's manual contained in the CD will show you how to change the default setting to COPY.
