Clean the corona wire on your drum unit. It should be a blue tab on the top of the cartridge that you can slide from side to side. Make sure that the blue tab returns to the starting position (there should be an arrow on the tab that will match up with an arrow on the drum unit). If this doesn't work, replacing the drum unit should fix it. Drum units are only meant to last ~4 toner section replacements.

My brother MFC 8500 is receiving alright but everything I send out has a big black streak going down the right side of the page. Confirmation page also has big black streak.


Let me see if I got this right.

The received fax is clean but when you send one out it has a black streak on it.
Cool! So far so good.
Makes sense because for sending, the fax scans the original document and parts of the scanning area could be dirty and so on. Therefore a black streak may appear.
The same black streak would also appear when you make a copy, because the original document must also be scanned.
Logical!

However for receiving faxes, the machine uses the internal memory and the print engine only, and the same applies to printing the transaction report, which comes from inside via the print engine.
The scanner has no rol in either situation.

Now I'm lost!

Black stripe running down left side of paper when


Open the top of the fax where your documents go in. There will be a thin **** of glass where the document is read. On the end that reads "dirty" is a smudge or some white-out that needs to be cleaned. You may have to clean it with some cloth wrapped on a flat tool. Do not scrap or scratch anything, just clean enough to get the dirt off. Then make a test copy.

How do i fax using a canon mx860 all in one printer?


Press the FAX button, open the document tray and align the paper guides for A4 size paper.

Place the sheets in the document feeder, facing up, first text line towards the machine, first page on top. The machine will beep. Adjust the paper guides.

Enter the phone number, and press the black button. The fax will be sent with the default settings.

Refer to the user manual as to how to change settings (it's quite straightforward from the menu, anyway).

Wide black line down page


open the document lid. Check to see if there is white-out on the glass platen where the document rides across the scanner. Some units require the white roll to be taken off.
sometimes a black mark on this platen can leave black streaks on copies made on this machine, and even when they send to others.
Try to clean the platen glass.

Black streaks on prints


Where the original page that you wish scanned/faxed there will be a device called a "scan part". This device "reads" the paper to be faxed/scanned as it passes. It usually is found very near where the paper to be faxed goes in.
If there is a spec of debris on this part it will cause a fine line straight down the document. If its dirty, the document will be too! Just give it a good cleaning and you should be fine.

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.

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.
