First, make a copy of something to determine if your machine is at fault.

Move the blue slider on the drum cartridge back and forth 10 times.

Black lines going straight across paper. 1 every inch down


If the streaks are narrow black and run the entire length of the page, replace the soft plastic wiper blade on the drum (and hope the drum is not scratched). Black smudges are related to the toner/developer purity. Replace both.

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.

WE HAVE A FAX MACHINE THAT HAS A BLACK LINE GOING DOWN THE PAGE WITH FAX IN AND FAX OUT


For outgoing fax lines, check your scaner rail for any streaks, dirts or similar and clean scaner.
For incoming fax streaks, you can only check your drum unit for lines on surface and replace it, or lines is there because other side has dirt or similar on their scaner.

Hope that helps!

2 streaks down middle of page


Do the black lines go from the lead edge to the trail edge? Also, were the lines there before you replaced the drum? If so the problem lies in the fixing unit.... You most likely need a upper fixing roller.

Black lines on incoming faxes


Pull out the drum cartridge. There should not be any toner on it.
(it could be defective [drum cleaning blade] especcially if it's a refilled unit.

There might be a small blue tab on top of the unit that you can slide back and forth to clean the charge wire.

But then again, if you just changed the drum, it sounds like it's defective.

Dark toner streaks


can only be toner, drum or fuser, pull out drum and look at surface are you streaks present? usually drum.

Stop a print half way threw machine and then remove drum and look at print, pre hot bit (fuser) are you marks there? If so it is drum, if not fuser.

Blank Streaks


streaks are caused either by the toner, drum, lamp or fuser.

If you make a copy and it does not show a streak then it was done by the person sending the fax. BUT, check this,

open door and take out toner cartridge. look for a thin glass that is on the bottom of the machine and wipe it. Toner spills will cause a black streak.

Light print of incoming faxes, cannot read

Black streaks on the fax


Yes it does, the rubber blade that cleans the drum is not doing its thing properly, hence leaving your mark, pull the drum unit out and expose drum by pulling back the cover underneath it, you should see your mark on the drum, don't touch drum with fingers or brush/clean it, it is photosensitive too so keep away from light for any period of time.
