Question about Brother MFC 8500 All-In-One Laser Printer
Pressed a button the other day and got these menus that said machine has 13% drum life. This explains why the white streak down the middle
when you copy. Also, it has starting to not want to send your fax
without sending several times over and over again. thanks
Try taking out the cartidge and given it a light shake. If the white streak moves or changes then you are out of toner.
As for sending faxes, do you get an error message an any kind? Does it try to dial?
