The drum unit may have a full waste toner hopper, I am not sure but defintely do not clean, or touch the drum, you may touch the the drum unit which has a corona wire which occasionally may need cleaning by running a wand across it. there should be a colored clip that will slide back and forth on the drum catridge to clean it.sorry i couldn't be more helpful without actually seeing it.


Thank You,

Mikey

You do not need any parts, just do the following.
1. open the front toner cover
2. take out toner and drum together
3. on the back side of drum unit you will see green or purple slider (it is used to clean corona wire)
4. push that slider few times from left to the right.
Important notice: you must leave slider on exact position to match black arrow on the drum unit.

Vertical Lines through incoming faxes and copies.


Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines
on the faxes you receive. Either your FAX/MFC's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or
the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire (see pages 13-18), or ask
the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is
with the sending machine.
Cleaning the Drum Unit
We recommend you place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of
disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1 Carefully turn the drum unit upside down.
2 Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab
from right to left several times.
3 Return the tab to the Home
position (  ) before
reinstalling the drum unit.

The ride side of my faxes and copies are black, any ideas?

primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire. I recommend placing the drum unit on a drop cloth or large disposable paper

1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times.
2. Return the tab and snap it into the Home position, (Caution: If the tab is not at the Home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes).
3. Reinstall the drum unit into the machine.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Plug in the power cord first, and then plug in the telephone cord.
or ask the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is with the sending machine.
Try receiving from another fax machine.
If the problem continues, call Brother Customer
Service at: 1-800-284-4329 (in USA) or 1-877-BROTHER (in Canada).

The fax machine is saying remove the drum there is dust on the corona wire.


Use the corona cleaning wire to clean the dust off. Open the front cover. Remove the drum/toner unit. look on the right side of the drum portion above the toner unit for a plastic tab with a triangle arrow that points to the left. Slide this tab back and forth several times. Move the tab back to the right. Reinstall the drum/toner unit. Close the front cover.

Clean the corona wire in this manner every time you change the toner/drum.

Fax machine has a message that says "open front cover to remove the drum. Clean the corona wire located on the drum."


The fax machine instruction must be done to erase the
message. The corona wire located on the drum needs to be cleaned.

There is a line coming through when we receive faxes.


Try removing drum unit, and cleaning corona wire with blue "slider" if that doesn't work, replace drum unit.
