Question about Brother MFC 6800 All-In-One Laser Printer

2 Answers

Black line We have had this printer and are very happy with it up until now. There is a black streak going down the paper on the copies. We have cleaned everything on the machine including tearing the machine apart and cleaning both sides of the glass and the rollers, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions to get rid of the black streaks? THANK YOU.

Black lines are caused by the scanner failing. Grey or light areas are either the ****-glass under the drum unit or the drum unit itself. If you use aftermarket toner, that could be your problem. Brother is really touchy when it comes to supplies.

The problem could be the system and not the printer itself. Try turning it off, unplugging and then replugging and switch on try again. Sometimes this can reset errors. Post back if no go lilacgerry xxx

I have an hp LaserJet 3015 PCL-6 all in one printer, copier & fax. When I use the copy function, there is a black streak running down the length of the copied paper. I tried replacing the toner...


Clean the thin glass strip that sits to the left of the flat bed glass.

That is the glass used when the ADF is being utilized.
There is dirt on it causing the black streak.

My samsung ML 2510 prints a black streak on each plus a watermark from previous page


If your paper setting are set corectly (normal paper) and you are getting a "ghost image" from the previous page, most likley the fuser is the problem. On rare occasions, the drum unit could be the culpret (Black lines) down the sides of the page as you indicated.
You may have 2 problems.

I would change the toner drum 1st. If the black lines go away ,yet the ghost image continues, then change the fuser as well.

There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.

If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.

HP Officejet 6300 All-in-one machine makes black streaks


The problem is that that there a small piece of glass that the doc feeder use's to scan the orginal. You will have to clean the small glass it's about a half of a inch piece and is normally under the doc feeder unit. It will either be to the right side of the main copy board glass or it is under the doc feed unit where the paper goes down through the feeder. It is mostly some white out on the glass, just clean with a dam cloth with water or windex..... Good Luck

Black dusty line on my copies


You mentioned when you copy.
If you just have it print with out doig a copy (like have it print an internal report or what ever) does it do the same thing?
If it does (and I'm assuming that this is a laser printer) change the toner cartridge.
If it doesn't, then there is something on the glass area that is causing the streak. Clean the glass with vinegar and water solution (not sopping wet, just damp on the rag) and dry. Test again.
