When you get the paper, can you smear the print with your fingers, or is printed on there properly.

if you can smear it, it would be your fuser not doing its job properly, if you cant, then its your replacement toner as it most likely incorporates the drum in it, which i think is your problem.

My brother mfc 7440N prints splotches every 3-3.5" on every page printed. This occurred with the previous and new toner cartridges. How to fix?


For crying out loud.

The "blotch" is caused by damage to the drum or to the toner fusing roller.

If the "blotch" is loose toner (in other words you can smear it) then the fuser roller is damaged and that assembly needs to be replaced.

If the "blotch" is fused (in other words you cannot smear it around) then the drum is damaged and that assembly needs to be replaced.

The original MSRP for the Brother MFC-7440n in 2008 was $429 (US) / 213 pounds [FixYa couldn't handle the pound sign!! =8-) ] (UK) / $499 (AU). The present street value is about $199 according to Brother ( http://www.brother-usa.com/MFC/ModelCompare/4/MFC7440N_MFC7460DN#.UXBKKKLq3yA ).


A drum unit is $80 (Amazon) or $115 (Staples).

That same $200 could get you a Canon Pixma MX-922 (Canon http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/office_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mx922). Inkjet? Yes. But fast. Airprint. 2-sided ADF and copying. Auto-duplexing. CD/DVD disc printing. Frankly, if I didn't already have an Epson 835, I would buy this one. My old Canon 820 still chugs along as beautifully as the day I got it (about a zillion years ago).

For $50 more you can get a top-rated laser, their imageCLASS MF4880dw (though oddly, without Airprint - for Airprint in a Canon laser, you have to step up to the big boy: the imageCLASS MF8580Cdw).
.

Well. Have fun!

Brother MFC 8500 print issue


Hi-

Try cleaning the glass part with a glass cleaner solution with a damp cloth, but if you need instruction how to clean the inside part of it, suggesting you consult a technician or certified servicer for the product to avoid further issue. thanks for using Fixya!

Brother mfc 8500 printer on xp does not print occasionally.


I try the following-
Unplug your fax machine, wait few seconds, replug.
Open the toner door, take out the unit, put it back in.
Restart the computer.
One of the above should work. It helps me.
Check your printing icon as well.

Printer smears on cold print


The toner cartridge sounds like the problem to me. Did you refill it? Or have it done? It sounds like an incompatible brand......toner is very model specific, and not just 'any' will do, and it often doen't mix well with the remaining toner i the cartridge if it is not completely disassembled and cleaned out. Just curious
