Hi,
Lines on the page is usually due to debris or scratches on the laser drum or fuser roller. These are situated within your toner refill cartridge. Check these rollers by removing the cartridge and pulling back the flap which conceals the rollers. Take note that the drum is sensitive to light & should not be exposed to light for prolonged periods. Check that there are no marks or scratches on the drum or fuser roller. Whipe off marks on the drum with a soft cloth or if there are scratches, replace the whole cartridge unit.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Prints half page


Printing half a page with an Inkjet machine is not normally a computer issue. So windows 10 would not normally have any effect on the printing for a printer that has been accepted by the Windows 10 Operating System. If there was an issue in the software it would be printing gibberish or not printing at all.

Printing half a page is quite possably something stuck in the printer stopping the ink from getting to that half a page if it is printing down once side but not the other.
Printing half a page being that the top half is printed but not the bottom half (Or the other way around) it could be an air bubble in the feed line which can be cleared with a printhead clean or two.
Printing half a line rather than a full line such as the top half of each letter is clear but the bottom half of each letter is not visable is a blocked printhead. A couple of printhead cleans can also fix this.
Also check to see if the printer is not confused and actually has empty cartridges even if the printer thinks they are full. Brother printers can easily get confused about ink levels. If the cartridges are actually empty, replace them and away it should go again.

Hope that helps

Brother HL-3040CN printer is printing a yellow stripe down the left side of the page since I changed to a new cartridge.


Hey, i had this problem with the cyan colour and it is easily fixed. You take out the problem cartridge and under it, youll see a green tab that you can slide left and reight. you must make sure this tab is at the "home" position. ie, all the way to the left until it clicks into place. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/eu/eu_ot/en/faq/faq/000000/000000/000065/faq000065_049.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=hl3040cn_all&Cat=7 This shows a picture about half way down the page of what it should look like. this solved my problem:) cheers!

I have a new MFC-7840W Brother Printer. I have had it about 2 weeks. Today, when I go to make a copy it puts a bold line exactly down the center of the page. Just 1 solid line. It happens whether I...


As its new its got to be either a fault or a printer setting.
Soooooooooooo, I'd go through the printer settings, see if there's anything which divides a page as such. Assuming no, its time to get on to Brother or you vendor. Its new so you don't want to start messing about with it, that may void any warranty.

Ask your vendor to demonstrate to your satisfaction or talk to brother via their web site / contact us.

My Brother HL1230 printer prints with whole lines of text missing several times on a page and gets worse by missing more lines if printing several pages. It has a new toner cartridge. How can I sort this...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

I would try a new print cartridge. There should be a cartridge cleaner built into the machine settings. Also the ink reservoir might need to be cleaned.

Black lines or smudge marks\running down the prints


Hello sir;The streak line from printing also should be from copy, because the line come from imaging unit, check the meter count if close to or over 50,000 then replace drum and drum blade, it will take care the problem.
The brother printer you need to replace imaging unit( drum unit).
