Question about Brother MFC-5440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
My Brother MFC 5440CN prints 2 lines down every page when autofeeding to make copies. I tried cleaning everything, changing ink cartridges... The machine is less than a year old.
If this only happens when you are copying.
1. Your scanner glass is dirty. Open the lid, use windex to clean the flatbed. Look on the left side. You should see a strip of glass, with the scanner sitting under it. This strip is used when the document feed is being used. Make sure it is clean. Most common problem is getting a little whiteout or the sticky residue from scotch tape on this glass, which causes lines down your copies.
Clean it with alcohol which will dissolve the sticky stuff and the whiteout.
If this does not solve the problem, the CCD scanner in your machine might be going bad.
