    I don't think it is an align problem.

    the white line is like this:

Hi, Karen.

From Fixya:

Try cleaning the optics and the charge corona. If you do not have the operators manual which outlines the procedure, go to www.welcome.solutions.brother.com.

The procedure is in the CLEANING documentation. Make sure the wire cleaner is pushed all the way back to its home position. Otherwise, the white line may return if the cleaner is left in the exposure path.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Align your cartridges to solve print quality problems such as:

  • Characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin.
  • Vertical, straight lines are wavy.
  1. Load paper in the paper support.
  2. On the control panel, press Copy.
  3. Press Options until Maintenance appears.
  4. Press the right arrow until Align appears, and then press Select.
An alignment page prints. Once this page prints, your automatic alignment is complete.

Hi,

The mark is not being produced from the toner cartridge or scan mirror. The line is being produced by the Drum unit. You need to replace it.

You can purchase one online or at you local stationery retailer.

Hope this helps.

Black stripe running down left side of paper when


Open the top of the fax where your documents go in. There will be a thin **** of glass where the document is read. On the end that reads "dirty" is a smudge or some white-out that needs to be cleaned. You may have to clean it with some cloth wrapped on a flat tool. Do not scrap or scratch anything, just clean enough to get the dirt off. Then make a test copy.

Unwanted verticle line on fax copies


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page. If this is the cause you will also find that faxes you send to other people will also have this line (although faxes you receive are not affected by this problem with your machine).

To fix the problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

I get lines and can't read the right side of copies that I make with the 1270e. How do I fix this?


You have not specified why you can't read the right side of copies and I am assuming that the reason is because the 'lines' are covering the text. I can offer a solution to the lines issue.

I have a black line showing up on my faxed documents. I have opened it up, changed the film and re- set it, but the problem persists. The machine is about 5 years old.

It could be that your sending fax is sending paper not facing the scanner. In that case tell them to turn the paper over to send. Other than that, it could be that the telephone lines are so dirty that the fax protocl fails at the check frame signal. You will have to adjust the equalisation and line attenuation. Don't count on the telephone company to help you, they always want you to do everything 1st before they will admit to any fault on their part.

Does not eject sheet


In the scanner unit there are 2 sets of ejection rollers. The first set (one farthest from you) there is a gear on the left hand side the probably has a worn collar on it that needs to be replaced. There is a black tab that sits in a slot on the right side of the shaft that holds the shaft in place. GENTLY move the tab away from the shaft then move the shaft to the left. The white gear on the left is the one that needs to be replaced if the collar is not perfectly square. Part #LE1196001. Hope that's it. Ed
