Re: 1320n marks along left side of paper
Repetitive defects are caused by either a ding on the drum in the toner, a scratch or dirty transfer roller, or scratched or dirty heat roller in the fuser, Last but not least is dirty exit roller. the first step to any print quality defect is to cahnge the toner cartridge. Good Luck!

Well not often the problem is same, usually the toner cartridge will have 2 bins 1 is the hopper which holds the un-used powder and the other is the Waste toner bin which holds the waste powder. When it is full and there is no place to escape then the powder spills on the paper. But if this happens then you can just bang your toner lightly and in this was the air pockets in the powder is clear and spill will stop automatically.
when you open the front door to replace your toner. The part that you put your toner in is the drum unit. pull that out. Remove the toner cart. blow the unit out.
( DO THIS OUT SIDE, TONER WILL BLOW OUT OF THE DRUM UNIT )
On the top of the drum unit there is a blue or green slide lever move the lever back & fourth 15-20 times.
re blow out the machine with drum unit out.
Reinstall the drum,
make 5 copies ( 1st feow will be bad hope thay will get better )
If not need to determan if the drum is bad or the fuser asm is cuasing the problum.
( part that melts the toner on to the paper )
Need to do a 1/2 print test.
1. make a copie or do a report
2. when the paper is 1/2 way thrugh the machine but not in to the fuser open front cover.
( may need to tray a coupel of times to do ot right )
3 look at the paper see if marks are on the paper.
( If not then the fuser is bad. if the marks are there the drum is bad )
Your problem is most likely not the drum.
Can you make a copy on the glass itself and the lines DO not appear?
if yes this confirms it is not from the drum. Open the top and look at the Small strip of glass : is it dirty or have two dots, white out or Anything on there???? clean w/ alcohol. Any dots will look like lines when making a copy because the paper is moving on the glass.
If the lines are still coming out even on the glass then take a look at the Fuser (exit where it gets hot) are the rollers smooth and uniform or are they scratched???
Your not resetting the toner reset lever. It's on the left end (not the fill cap side) of the cartridge. If you have a resettable cartridge on the left end you will see to white pieces. One round and one like a lever in a half moon slot. We will be addressing the lever in the half moon slot only. The lever on a used cartridge will be at the 3 O'clock position. Remove the two screws from the end cap and then move the gear to the 11 O'clock position. Put the end cap and screwss back on. Put it back in the printer and close the door. When the printer powers up it will sweep the lever across the sensor and reset the toner level to full.
Hope that helps you.
When refilling, make sure you dump out and clean ALL OF THE OLD TONER from the cartridge before refilling. Brother reuses it's old toner putting it back into the fresh toner supply (along with debri) and slowly contaminates it's supply with paper dust and talc from the paper.
If you don't clean out the supply hopper well before refilling, it will quickly mix your new toner with the old toner and more quickly contaminate the entire supply. USE GOOD PAPER, NOT CHEAP PAPER and your supplies and refills will last much longer.
yep simple problem .. step 1 : close the machine (power off) step 2 : push the button in the right side (up) of the macheine (means with your left hand) step 3 : open the cover and pull the toner step 4 : normally you shoul find a remaining piece of paper not correctly printed stuck inside step 5 : take it off..power on ..there you go :)
