Problem with brother mfc 7340 copier: when i copy, two parallel lines appear on copy. thanks for your answer


1. To test, print the Help List:a. Press the REPORTS key located on the control panel.b. Press the up or down arrow key until Help list appears on the display(#2).c. Press Ok. The report should begin printing.Black lines that appear on faxes you send, images you scan into the computer and copies you make are typically caused by dirt or white out on the scanner unit. The scanner unit is the mechanism that reads in the documents that are being copied or transmitted.

Brother FAX-8070P memory shows full and does not send all pages at one time?


This message means the memory capacity of the unit has been exceeded. The amount of memory used depends on the amount or type of data on the documents being faxed or copied.
  1. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning the first page of a fax, press Stop/Exit to cancel scanning.
  2. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning a subsequent page, you can either press Fax Start to transmit the pages that were scanned so far or press Stop/Exit to cancel the operation.

When Fax Storage is set to On, a copy of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a % of the memory available for other functions.
The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, verify Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD. Then, press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Pressthe arrow key until FAX STORAGE and then press Menu/Set.
  5. Check the setting. The display will read ON or OFF. If the setting is ON, press the arrow key until the display reads OFF.
  6. Press Menu/Set.
  7. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase all fax? 1. Yes 2. No. If you want to erase all the faxes in the memory without printing them out, press 1 (Yes) and then press Stop/Exit.
Note
    If you would like to reprint the saved faxes, press 2 (No), press Stop/Exit and continue to the following steps for instructions on how to print stored faxes.
If you do need the features that require Fax Storage to be On, the stored faxes will need to be erased or printed to remove them from the memory and to allow additional memory to be available. Follow these steps to print the stored faxes:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD and press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the arrow key until PRINT FAX or PRINT DOCUMENT appears and press Menu/Set.
  5. Press Fax Start.
  6. After printing is finished, press Stop/Exit.

My brother MFC 8500 is receiving alright but everything I send out has a big black streak going down the right side of the page. Confirmation page also has big black streak.


Let me see if I got this right.

The received fax is clean but when you send one out it has a black streak on it.
Cool! So far so good.
Makes sense because for sending, the fax scans the original document and parts of the scanning area could be dirty and so on. Therefore a black streak may appear.
The same black streak would also appear when you make a copy, because the original document must also be scanned.
Logical!

However for receiving faxes, the machine uses the internal memory and the print engine only, and the same applies to printing the transaction report, which comes from inside via the print engine.
The scanner has no rol in either situation.

Now I'm lost!

I can't scan


When scanning documents on my MFC 7420, this is what I do. Place document on th scanner bed and don't press any buttons, leave it whatever mode it is in. Go to the computer and click on start> program files> scansoft paperport> open paperport se. When paperport is open click on the scan icon in the upper left corner. A dialog box on the left hand side will ask what you want to scan a picture or document. Select accordingly and press the scan icon.
A new window will pop up and ask what you want to scan and the size. You can either select pre scan or scan. The computer then will send a scan request to the scanner. When it is done scanning close the second window that popped up and the document that you just scanned will be there with a red box around it. Click on the document and it will open, then you can edit and save as needed.
Happy scanning

I get a white line on the printed pages on my Brother MFC4800. The line is about 5mm wide and runs down the left hand side of the paper, cutting through the type. Can you help please


Try cleaning the optics and the charge corona. If you do not have the operators manual which outlines the proceedure, go to www.welcome.solutions.brother.com. The proceedure is in the CLEANING documentation. Make sure the wire cleaner is pushed all the way back to its home position. Otherwise, the white line may return if the cleaner is left in the expoure path. IF THE WHITE LINE APPEARS ON PRINTED PAGES GENERATED BY YOUR COMPUTER, THE WIRE CLEANER IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE.. IF THE WHITE LINE APPEARS ON PRINTS THAT WERE SCANNED USING THE BROTHER SCANNER, THE OPTICS MAY BE SMUDGED. LOOK FOR CORRECTION FLUID ON THE GLASS **** (THE NARROW SCAN GLASS). THIS IS THE USUAL CAUSE.
