    While installing a new drum unit in our Brother printer, I followed the directions which included sliding the blue tab to clean the corona wire. In sliding the tab, a monofilament wire popped out. When I slid the tab again, the wire disappeared. However, it prints solid black pages. Any help would be appreciated. My printer is a Brother MFC-7420.

The corona wire is not charging the drum properly. Try pulling the toner cartridge out and then re-seating it. If this doesn't work, try a new toner cartridge as the corona wire is usually included in the cartridge.

If you are using a refill toner, there's an outside chance that the supplier put toner with the wrong electric charge in the cartridge. Again, changing the cartridge should fix this(assuming the replacement is from another batch).

Try checking the corona cleaner on the drum unit. It should be slid all the way to one side. It is a little blue piece that slides back and forth. look for the arrow on one side and slide all the way to it. Not sure if that would cause solid black pages but I have seen it cause solid black lines on the page.

Replaced fuser and toner units now only prints black pages


Printing on a laser printer has 3 steps:

1. electro-statically charging the "drum", at various tiny "pixels",
to identify where the toner-powder should be placed.

2. feeding toner-powder onto the charged drum.

3. making the fuser produce heat to "bake" the ink onto the printer.

So, a failing unit or failing electronics would "charge" *ALL* of the drum,
thus putting black ink EVERYWHERE onto the page.

Take the printer to a qualified technician.

I have just replaced the drum in a brother MFC-7820N, now all I am printing is solid black pages, can you help me please?


Sounds like a defective drum, the corona wire could be broken, Brother will warranty for 90 days and you can exchange, if it's generic you should take it back and exchange it.
