Scan coming out blurred on Brother 7820N Multi-Function Laser

We have a Brother 7820N Multi-Function Laser B&W Laser Printer/Scanner. It has worked fabulously for a few years - now when we scan the copy is coming out blurred. Is this repairable?

    Thank you for your reply.
    The problem doesn't occur when scanning is done on the glass. It happens when fed through the feeder. Red or green lines appear under some of the typed or written lines on the scan and makes the copy look blurred. As we are scanning legal papers, some of them aren't coming out too clear lately - and end up unreadable.

Hello and welcome to Fixya..

If you havent already, try cleaning both the scan tray, and the glass.

That is usually the culprit ..

Also, look at the glass, sometimes over long term use, a slight condensation can form that distorts scans..

Feel free to add a comment if none of this works for you!

Brother MFC-7820N Printer--vertical lines


You need to clean the scanner glass. Also known as the strip glass. It is a 1 inch wide strip of glass that runs from the front to the back. Your documents pass over this glass when they are scanned. Some of the wax crayon probably smeared off onto the glass and now when you scan the scanner sees these marks as stationary and thus records them as solid lines. Just look into the scanner section where your documents are fed in or depending on model, some are just to the left of the large original glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Bad Scan Quality Using Brother MFC-7820N Document Feeder


Look to the left side of the flatbed glass for a thin strip of glass by itself. When you scan from the glass, the document stays put and the sensor moves across the document. When you scan from the feeder, the sensor stays in that glass strip and the document moves across the sensor. See what I mean? I would check the small feeder glass for dirt or scratches from staples or other flotsam. Also not a bad idea to blow out the feeder path with some compressed air to ensure the documents is handled smoothly. Hope this helps!

Problems with Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer turns itself off


I just had same issue, it shared an outlet with a large volume work group copier, I unplugged it, opened and closed all compartments to make sure something open was not causing issues. I plugged it into different outlet and it appears to be back online. I have read some postings that this model has been known to draw over 15 amps. Its possible its starving for power. To test take to another room, plug in outlet by itself and see if it boots up.

BROTHER MFC-7820N-SCANNER FUNTION NOT WKING


Is it still working as a copier? If so then there may be something wrong with the printer's network interface or the networking at that jack or a problem with your switch. Have you tried moving it back to the old location or plugging the network cable into another wall jack, or changing ports on your switch?
