Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

I have a Brother MFC-8220. It's producing prints with very dark backgrounding. The drum has a very thick coating of toner even after going through warm-up without printing. Have tried name brand as reman toners and drums - same results.

Hi,
You may clear the problem by cleaning the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by sliding the blue tab.Make sure you return the blue tab to the Home position.
If you still face the problem then you need to change the drum unit . Drum unit is damaged .

Hope this helps .

I am getting a thick black line in the middle of my printed document when I use my mfc 8220


I am going on the presumption that you are getting this thick black line when printing from your computer. It can be a couple of things but firstly remove the toner/drum unit from the printer.
Check that the blue tag at the end of the top end of the drum unit ( used for cleaning the corona wire or drum unit & slides from 1 side to the other. ), is in the correct left correct position. If it is in the middle then that is what is causing this mark. It should be on the side of the drum unit where the arrows match.
If the blue slider is not in the middle then have a look at the drum & see if there is a black mark around it. If there is then you will need to replace the drum unit.
If you are only getting this mark when photocopying or faxing then there is a mark on the small piece of glass at the left hand side under thye document feeder.

Brother MFC 8220 all-in-one fax prints with a vertical line


First guess is you have a bit of dirt (often white-out from people scanning corrected paper that's not quite dry) stuck on the fax scan window. This should be described pretty well in your user manual (which you can download online from brother.com).

Its also possible that there is dirt (typically loose toner) on the laser scan window (there's a laser that shines through it to get the image pattern on the drum). That window is often along the bottom of the unit under the drum/cartridge (take the cartridge out and look). The Brother manual I've seen seems to ignore this possibility.

Print streaks DO NOT mean cartridge drum replacement in many cases !! On brother Intellifax or MFC or other laser copier/printer/fax, keep in mind that either the fax/copy scan window OR the laser scan window can get dirty. If the fax scan window is dirty, you see streaks on outgoing faxes and copies (but NOT incoming faxes). If the laser scan window is dirty, you see streaks on all prints (copies, faxes, print-from-computer).

Note also that when transporting/moving some laser copier with the toner cartridge inside, the toner can get out and make a big mess inside (including getting the laser scan window dirty). An air compressor can be usefull to blow it out. And sometimes using alcohol to clean is a BAD idea (maybe incompatible with plastic and rubber parts). A damp rag is probably fine.

3 black smudge horizontal lines on prints


Your brother can send faxes without printing the pages try your computer just you should download the driver.

You can download the driver from this link: " http://download.cnet.com/Brother-MFC-8220-USB/3000-2118_4-65318.html ".

About the lines which appear on the print, you will have to buy a Drum unit for your Brother 575, because the drum cleaning blade has quit working and there is no other way to fix this only by putting a new drum unit.

note:
the drum unit is different from the toner cartridge, but if you search good you can find them together for lower price.

Dark background on Dell 1700 printing


Faulty (or wrongly) remanufactured cartridges can produce a 'background' to a print, which can be even across the page or have a mottled effect.

Do a printer self test page (press the arrow button).

put the old toner cartridge back in and do the same.

Does the background show with the old cartridge ?

If it does, its a drum unit problem, if not its a toner cartridge problem, and that should be under warranty if you've just replaced it.
