The best test to find the defective component is a "half-test." You interrupt the print job by opening a cover. See if the drum/ toner has produced the defect already, or if the defect is created at the end of the print process.
The most likely suspect would be the fuser producing ghost images every 3 inches in a repeating defect that fades out.
Make sure that you are not using thick or glossy paper on the wrong setting. The toner won't bond if the settings are too cold.
The Brother part number for the fuser is LM6313001K for the white connector. If you have the grey connector it will cost slightly more. They are not compatible, so be sure to match the connector when ordering.

    Double printing on pixma mp470

    Double printing or double feed??. Double printing means document printed in 2 copies. Double feed means printer feed double paper in one moment. For double printing,please check number of copy of document in printing preference properties.
    Double feed occurs when pickup roller fails to pick the paper correctly. It's usually caused by shaft of paper pick up roller which is broken. You should replace drive assembly (include pick up roller) in this case

    I have a de.. printer 924. I need help getting it to print. Please e-mail me so I can get help on line

    You must se up your printer.
    Connect it to a PC and you have to download the drivers/software from the CD provided.
    OK, now if you want to print document such as Microsoft Word, you can just press print and it will print.
    If its image, double click on the image, you'll see the print and click on it.

    **If you still can't print, go to control panel, click on Printers and other hardwares, then click on installed printers/faxes (it might be that there are more than one option of printing and it did not locate the right place), so check if you can see your printer there. If your printer is offline, double-click the mouse and set it as Default Printer.
    That should be it.
    If that does not help, you can view the manual here.

    Hope it helps.

    I have just purchased a new samsung laser / fax printer model no. SCX4824FN. I can print from my computer and I can copy a document. However I cannot scan a document to my computer or send / receive a fax....

    Dont start the scan from the printer. It is a little bit complicating. Double click on My Computer, right click on scanner or image device then use the wizard to scan.
