Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
My printer leaves a straight line all the way down the left margin. Any idea what to do about is?
Try removing the drum and cleaning the corona wire in the drum cartrige. Once the drum unit is removed look at the front right corner for a blue peice. Slide this peice back and forth over the slot 3 or 4 times. When finished move it back all the way right until it "clicks" back into home position. Install the drum back into the machine and try printing a page again.
You can also remove the toner cartridge from the drum and look at the drum for signs of scoring (lines) on the drum.
If that doesn't solve the issue, look under my user name for a "tips and tricks "article that will address the common issues with the Brother supplies.
Hope this helps you. If so rate me with a FIXYA. I'm just a tech trying to help out people in my spare time.
