If this only happens when you are copying.

1. Your scanner glass is dirty. Open the lid, use windex to clean the flatbed. Look on the left side. You should see a strip of glass, with the scanner sitting under it. This strip is used when the document feed is being used. Make sure it is clean. Most common problem is getting a little whiteout or the sticky residue from scotch tape on this glass, which causes lines down your copies.

Clean it with alcohol which will dissolve the sticky stuff and the whiteout.

If this does not solve the problem, the CCD scanner in your machine might be going bad.

SOURCE: error message one brother mfc-5440cn

Unplug the printer from power cord.Press and hold the "menu" button, then plug the device.You'll see on the LCD screen a "machine error" code.If this code is 40,41 or 4F the print head is defective.If the error is 50 or 51 there is error in Purge unit and printer require service.If the error is 46 the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:
Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number
is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.This will reset the purge count value. Then restart the printer, hopefully without the
annoying cannot clean message.

You'll need the new waste ink tank, part number LF7544001. They call it an Ink Absorber box. Add a small flat screwdriver, a rag, and a #2 Phillips, and I think you're set:
Raise the scanner until the support bar holds it.
You'll find two skinny covers set into the top cover of the printer section. Use the flat-blade screwdriver to pry loose the hooks that hold them and remove them.
You'll find that they cover the cables that connect the scanner to the main section. Unplug them and unscrew the ground wire that runs parallel to them. Carefully note the routing of the cables, so you can cram them back in and they won't make the covers bulge when you're done.
The scanner support bar is now free to unlatch at the bottom end. Now you can raise the scanner section until it's vertical and unhook it from its hinges. Set the entire scanner assembly aside.
The printer section's top cover is held by about 7 screws. All are identical, except for a single one that goes into steel instead of plastic. Keep track of where that one goes when you unscrew everything. Remove the top cover. I believe there's a hidden hook near the front-center, also.
You'll find the ink absorber box at the back. The ink tubes just pull off and push on. Be ready with a rag to catch any drips when switching.
Putting it back together is easier than taking it apart was, except getting those cables to fit nicely in their channels. The flat, white one is delicate. Insert it straight. Remember to mount the scanner and snap in the support bar before snapping on those skinny covers.
You may have to reset that counter again, but you have those instructions.
