Question about Brother MFC-8460N All-In-One Printer
A dark line on printed pages that are printed directly from the computer are most likely coming from the Drum Unit.
A dark line seen after making a COPY of a document using the feeder on top, is caused by a dirty scanner glass.
In the first example the fix is to replace the drum unit.
In the 2nd example you need to clean the scanner glass. The glass can be seen by lifting up the automatic feeder on top of the machine and exposing the large original glass. The document feeder glass is the smaller thin strip of glass that is located just to the left of the large glass. Clean this strip well with a cloth/paper towel and a bit of glass cleaner.
Good Luck and Thbak You for using Fixya.
