Depending on how many copies you have it might be time for a new drum unit. Also, you can change the settings for the resolution for copies in the main menu. Check Menu--Copy--Quality and make sure it is not set on Photo. This would definitely **** up toner as it would print at the highest resolution rather than the default resolution.

Printer has light grey background after printing

Hi Mel:
Just a thought, is there a "greyscale" setting?
When I try to print I have the choice of Black & White, colour, and greyscale.
Hope this helps.

When I scan on my Brother MFC7440N I get lines down the middle of the pages. I cleaned every inch of the scanner and that didn't help. Any suggestions?

If you scan through adf there will be a mark on the corresponding part of the small glass window at edge of machine (often caused by ink). Clean this narrow strip of glass thoroughly. Hope this helps

We have a MFC 7440N at work. I have Windows 7. I

did you install the full suite for your printer OR just the printer drivers?
I believe if download the full suite, uninstall the old software from control panel 's add/remove programs, then reinstall the complete software you should be up and going again.
the software download is here:
make sure you select the correct operating system as there are both 32 and 64 bit drivers. and make sure you pick the "full driver & download package.
there is also an uninstall tool at the bottom of the page to remove any older software/drivers you may have previously installed prior to installing the new software.

Can't address envelopes using Microsoft Word 2007 & Windows 7

Excellent question. Wish I had the answer. I have the same problem with the MFC-7440N. I hook up my old HL 1240 and it prints them fine, so I now use two printers - one for envelopes and one for normal printing. I contacted Brothers and was told that it was not the printer, but the Application. If so, then why does my old Brothers printer work? They do not have the answer.
