Question about Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer
You have a worn image drum. The drum is the part of the printer that the print image is created on before it transfers the toner to the paper. This part is coated with a very thin layer of Teflon so the toner does not stick. When it gets worn the toner starts to stick and that produces the shadow or ghost image approximately 3 inches down the page because the diameter of the drum roller is 3 inches. You will need to get the part DR-350, Office Depot has them as well as many places on the internet.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Testimonial: "I really appreciate the answer! I will go buy a new drum. Thanks again for your help! I appreciate it very much! "
Alternatively, if the printer is old enough (and these MFC 7820s are getting on in years), the fuser may need to be replaced. (Credit to Bobby Mcparrin for pointing this out in another thread.)
I've already replaced the drum and toner cartridge on my unit, and am still having the ghosting problems, so next step is to figure out how to replace the fuser. (It's a great piece of equipment that has served me well -- scans 20+ pages without jamming -- so I'd rather not send it to landfill. And I just replaced the motherboard a few months ago.)
