Check the fuser. If it is the fuser, you should be seeing 3 dark lines on the fuser film. Here is the picture about how the film looks like:

Changing the film usually solve the problem. However changing the film itself is difficult. You have to remove and basically disasseble the fuser, and change the film. However it is fairly cheap and if you decide you would like to save some money, here is the link available in ebay:

Or, simply search for 'P3005 Fuser Film' and you will find a lot.

Other than that, you can change the entire fuser. Please note that fuser for P3005 is not consumer installable part. You still have to take out some parts in order to change the fuser.

The parts are available from many parts supplier. Simply google 'P3005 fuser'. Usually around $100 for a refurbished fuser.

You can also recycle your old fuser and get some moeny! (about $15-$25 per fuser).

Good luck!

Make sure there is no ink powder in side the printer and the drum is clean.

Getting black lines on copies on Brother MCF 6490cw all-in-one printer/copier. How can I clean the rollers or internal mechanisms which are making the lines?

More likely than not, it's either the imaging drum or the toner causing these lines, and not left over toner on the rollers. Try replacing the toner and see if that works, if not, put the old toner back in and try replacing the imaging drum

Installed new toner cartridge, and now pages come out with several horizontal lines across them

The drum is defective, you need to replace it. It is the part you put the toner into.

Xerox phaser 6180. Printing 3 blue horizontal lines spaced evenly apart on printed page. New toners. Could it be fuser? transfer roller?

Just because they are new toners, doesn't mean they can't be faulty.

Faults that show in just a single colour are almost always related to THAT colour toner cartridge.


If you still have your old cyan toner, swap the chip from your new toner and put the old toner in the printer, then test.

If the lines are gone, it's the NEW cyan toner cartridge.

I just replaced the cartridge. I rolled it back and forth as directed. I am now experiencing a dark line an inch in from side.

First just verify it is not the scanner optics by laying a document on the glass and making a copy. If the line is still there then you have a defective new toner cartridge. You can verify this by putting the old toner back in even if it does not make a great copy. You should be able to tell if the black line is gone. If it is gone then just get the new toner replaced under warranty.

I get a white line through but it is not telling me to change toner?

This can occur if you receive a lot of faxes that may have a vertical block or a lot of text or pictures etc. in the same location on the page. The toner can be used in that particular area of the page and a white line results.

Remove the toner cartridge from the fax, keep it horizontal. Shake it side to side whilst keeping the cartridge horizontal. This redistributes the toner inside the cartridge. Replace the toner cartridge in the fax.

Hope this helps.

Dark Horizontal Lines on Faxes

on the drum unit that you put your toner inn, There is a blue or green slide lever move the slide back and fourth 10-15 times. If you have some van air blow that area out ( F.Y.I. if you do this some toner will fly out ) if this does not take care of it the drum unit my be bad,

do a 1/2 print test. copier something with a lot of print. open front cover when the paper is 1/2 way through the machine remove drum. Look art the paper and the green drum if the marks are on the paper & drum then the drum is bad. If not the fuser asm is bad, the part that gits hot when melting the toner on the paper,
