I am getting thick black lines (two or sometimes three) down the whole length of a sheet of A4. Do I need a new drum?


Dirty print out is basically due to cartridge related issues. Take out the cartridge and clean its drum/ (green roller) with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth. The drum is usually located under a cover. Checkout for any spilled toner inside the printer and clean it also. Print a few pages so that the parts get further cleaned. I think, this would solve the issue.

Moreover, black streaks (thicker lines) and dots etc indicate faulty PCR Roller which is located behind the green drum inside the cartridge. Try replacing the cartridge or get the PCR Roller changed by a professional.

Let me know if any further clarification is required.
GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

clean the LED array with a soft cloth or tissue or the alcohol wipe that comes with new toner cartridges if you still have it. open the cover to expose the drum on the bottom side of cover is a black bar(LED ARRAY) as wide as the drum but about a half inch thick wipe the bottom side that will face the drum when the cover is closed

Hi Everytning I print has a very narrow pink line straight down the centre of the page, also every so often the print has a black/yellow/blue/pink thick line running across the page. Thanks


The narrow pink line is coming from your magenta toner/drum cartridge. You may be able to open the from cover and look at the 4 toners. If you look at the magenta (like pink) cartridge, you might see the thin line on the drum surface.
The multicolored band that sometimes shows up on your prints is most likely the transfer belt unit. This is caused by an area of the belt that is not being cleaned very well. This probably tends to show up when you are running mutilple prints of a page.
So it looks like to may need to replace your magenta toner and look at getting a transfer belt unit.

Black line, 4-5 mm thick, down the page on printing, off centre


ok, both of those solutions are totally bogus....first, the quality issue...i build about 25 of these cartridges a week, and it sounds like you should check the life of the drum unit, if you haven't cleaned the corona wire already. ( refer to the printer documentation) Brother uses a seperate drum unit that will wear out after 12,000 pages, not the pickup roller. So if you have replaced more than 4 toner carts, it is likely, depending on your usage, that the drum unit is worn. Take out the whole toner/drum unit, remove the toner cart by pressing on the lever on the left front of the assembly and pull up and out. Now you should have two pieces. Look into the larger piece, and if you see excessive wear on the drum, it needs to be replaced. The jamming is a different issue, though....let me know if you need more info....don't buy a new printer yet!!!

Black horizontal lines in printout


Seems like the drum needs changing. This is the most common cause for print problems in these printers. If using the high yield TN 6600 toner then you need to change the drum every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN 6300 toner then the drum will need replacing every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps

Thin black line 1.5 in from the right side of the paper going down the whole page


If it doesnt have a line on it when you scan it and open up the document then it's not going to be a scanner issue, more then likely, it's going to be an issue with the toner of the printer you are using to print with. Check the drum on the toner and you'll probably see the line in question on the drum itself. You'll just have to push back the flap that covers the drum on the toner if this is a laser printer... hope this help's if it does, please mark as a FIXYA!!

White line and very, very dirty copies


the nealy black copies sounds like the drum is going, try adjusting the exposure to light, if it comes out with the whole page the same way but just lighter than change drum. White line sounds like there is something on the coronas.
