SOURCE: Drum error

Yes, you should replace the drum unit if you have not done so. You may have a broken corona wire or drum. However, keep in mind that you will need to reset your machine after changing the drum unit. If after replacing, you still get the same error, you may have a problem with your machine properly sensing your drum unit.

SOURCE: Brother IntelliFax-4100e Fax Reset drum counter

With the front cover still open, you should press Clear ("Replace Drum?" should appear on the display), and then 1 for Yes. Wait for "Accepted" message and close cover.
It may be necessary to remove the drum unit and put it back in, and then, with the cover open, do the a/m procedure.

I have a similar black line (about 2inches in width, on the right side) on faxes sent from my Brother 4100e. I cleaned the scanner glass as suggested by you, but it continues to have the same problem on...


Either your machine's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire. I recommend placing the drum unit on a drop cloth or large disposable paper
to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times.
2. Return the tab and snap it into the Home position, (Caution: If the tab is not at the Home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes).
3. Reinstall the drum unit into the machine.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Plug in the power cord first, and then plug in the telephone cord.
or ask the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is with the sending machine.
Try receiving from another fax machine.
If the problem continues, call Brother Customer

You can also try these steps below

2 Reset the drum counter if you have already changed the drum recently. Open the device's front cover and press the button labeled "Clear," then close the cover and press the "1" button on the device's control panel.

3 Pull down on the top of the device's front cover. Slide the print cartridge assembly out of the inside of the printer and place it on a scratch piece of paper.

4 Depress the lever on the right side of the assembly and separate the toner cartridge from the drum assembly. Remove the new drum unit from its aluminum bag and snap the toner cartridge into it.

5 Place the print cartridge assembly back into the device and keep the front cover open. Press the "Clear" button, then press "1." Close the front cover once the device's screen reads "Accepted."

Vertical Lines through incoming faxes and copies.


Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines
on the faxes you receive. Either your FAX/MFC's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or
the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire (see pages 13-18), or ask
the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is
with the sending machine.
Cleaning the Drum Unit
We recommend you place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of
disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1 Carefully turn the drum unit upside down.
2 Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab
from right to left several times.
3 Return the tab to the Home
position (  ) before
reinstalling the drum unit.

Incoming faxes have black line running through the centre


If it is just from incoming faxes and not from anything you print/copy then it is the sender's fax machine that is dirty. If everything you do has that line, try cleaning the scanner glass and corona wire.

Copying problem


Vertical lines on the copy usually indicate a dirty drum or Corona wire. The Corona wire should be cleaned each time you replace the toner cartridge. This is done by moving the Corona tab back and forth across the wire several times to clear it of debris. You may also want to check the drum for debris. Holding the copied page to where it feeds out and lining up the line or mark on the page will give you an idea as to where the dirt may be. Best of luck with your printing issue.

Just replaced toner - now it prints so dark I can't even read the fax


Most common cause is a dirty corona wire and or drum. If after cleaning the corona wire and drum the copies are still mostly black and smeared, the drum may be broken.

Print Quality Problem with Brother 2820 Fax


sounds like you are using generic drum and toner. try OEM (brother brand). you say copies are coming out completely gray. try printing an internal report from the control panel. if that is gray or received faxes are gray, then the problem is not in your scanner area, and i would wager you are using "generic" supplies.

Black lines on received faxes


look for a corona wire, close to the drum
  1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times.
  2. Return the tab and snap it into the home position.

    If the tab is not at the home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes.
