I ama assuming this is an bro 8840d. if so, print one of your internal reports from the control panel. if streaks are there, then you probably need a drum unit. if internal reports look good, then lift the feeder on top of machine, and cleaned the little, narrow piece of glass to the left of your big glass.

Brother 7220 black streaks


Clean the roller and the inside of the machine, asny residue on the roller will cause these black streaks. If cleaning doesn't cure the problem you will need to replace it.

If the dark streak appears on printed documents, cleaning the charge wire will correct it.

The receiver states that our faxes that we send are unreadable down the right side of the paper--white or dark streak. The faxes we receive are ok


The glass scanner window (narrow strip of glass) needs cleaning. One "spot" of dirt will appear as a streak on the receiving end.
If you "copy" a document you can check the streak and see how effective your cleaning is.

I have a BROTHER MFC- 8860DN that makes black streaks on copies


If this is only happening with copies and not straight prints, it is possible that the problem is with the scanning unit. Use the soft cloth to clean the scanner area to the left side of the machine where pages are scanned when run through the page feeder. A spec of dust or other debris in this area will appear as a streak along the length of the page.

If it occurs on all prints, You may need to replace the drum or clean the fuser unit.

Copies and outgoing fax quality


your machine most likely has toner spills in it.
if you send faxes face side down follow these instructions ;
1- take out toner
2- look for thin glass strip on bottom inside the machine
3-wipe clean

if you make copies side up then do the same except look for glass strip on the upper side of machine

Printing is streaking


What exactly did you clean on this machine? Also, when you say it streaks, is it when you're printing or making a copy?
