Solid Blank Line

How do I fix a 1/2 inch solid veritical blank line? Toward the middle of the page- it is just blank. Print is all around it. I have traded out ink cartridges, but it did the same thing.

This machine is a thermal transfer machine, doesn't use ink, but a thermal imaging roll (PC 301) The thermal print head may need a good cleaning with Isoprpynol. Locate the print head and use a cloth soaked in Isopropynol to thoroughly clean. There is probably years of burnt on material in the spot where the blank line is.

If it's blank, is this on what you send/recieve?

Also if you print something like a status sheet, is it missing on those too? If so, your print head needs replacing.

If its on copies/sents you need to clean the scanner head.

It could be 2 things...

1. Your scanner glass is dirty...open the doc feeder and clean the glass. probably Wite-Out.

2. A segment of your scanner assembly lamp is burned out. Not good, uneconomical to repair.

Top of page prints OK. Bottom blank


My first guess would be phone line problem. Print out an activity report (if you don't have a users manual you can download it at www.brother-usa.com ) and check to see if you have had any communication errors. If you notice no errors then make 50 test copies. If your test copies look good then I would lean towards a phone line problem. if they come out like you have described then I would start with your toner and drum first, second laser and third main board.

I need more information. If you make 20 copies do you still notice the problem or only when you receive a fax. What is your copy count (press life 1). Does it jam or make noises. At first glance I would say phone line problem. .

If you have already try another image unit, you should try to make a copy or print a report. If the prints came out ok, the problem could be the telephone line. GOOD LUCK.
