Hi there. Do you have any Brother Intellifax 1250 blue lock levers available? I have two machines and both have the right side broken. If I wanted to buy two complete sets of two (i.e., 2 lefts and 2 rights) what would that run me? My shipping address is 1236 Cornerstone Blvd, Unit 274, Downingtown, PA, 19335. My email address is ftav4444 at yahoo dot com. Thanks.

Is this a machine that uses a big, black roll of thermal donor film? The Fax 1250 and several other models have a common problem where the left side prints perfectly, but fades to blank on the right (or the opposite). When you replace that donor film cartridge, you open the top and push a blue lever back on each side to raise the print element assembly.If one of those levers cracks, it will still hold down the head and look normal, but it won't hold it tightly enough the paper to to print on that side. For models Fax-1150/1250M/1350M/1450MC/1550MC the parts are Left (as viewed from the front):UF6085001 Right: UF6087001 One or two screws hold the metal plate on top, then the levers are held on by the springs.
Remove drum unit. in front of the toner cart. there is ether a green or blue slide lever. move the slide 10-15 times back and forth. make sher the slide is all the way over to one side. reinstall drum & make a copie. hope this works.
I have the same problem with my 1950MC. When I examined the blue lever carefully on the right side of the machine I found that the plastic lever was cracked at its thinnest point. Thus when both levers are locked down that one was not holding the print head tightly enough to print that side of the paper. If I held the print head down manually, the copy printed fine. So if you have this problem, check the blue levers for cracks. The levers are easy to remove and should not cost very much. I recommend that you replace both left and right levers. These plastic parts cannot stand up to very much use without cracking.
The blue release lever that holds the ribbon cartride may be cracked or broken. The crack may be so fine, that it's not easy to see, so look carefully. Even the slightest crack will cause the ribbon cartridge to fit loosely enough so that the roller is not touching the paper. Whatever side is not printing, that's the lever that you should look at. That's what happened to mine. I was ready to buy a new machine, until I found that solution. To test it, I tried to copy something while pushing down on that side of the ribbon cartridge, and it printed fine--the whole page. I looked more closely at the lever, and found the crack.
One of the blue locking levers is broke. the side that is light is the side the locking lever is n.g. open the top like you want to change the film. there are 2 locking levers. right and left. They are different. if you look close you will see a split in the plastic when it locks down. It is not holding down on one side. I think I have the locking levers. One small screw removes the top plate and you can change them. Lawrence
