    Same problem but can't seem to find a fix.

    When I send faxes or make copies, I get a solid black line about 1 inch wide all the way down the paper. The line is off center to the right.

    I have a black line about 1 1/2 inches on the right side of my fax when I send. I was told to clean the CIS unit. How do you get to this part and how do you clean it?

    I too have a solid 1 1/2-2" black line down the right side of the page when copied or faxed. I don't have it hooked up to the computer to test the printing. Called the service center and after they had me clean it multiple times, and remove the printer cartridge and move the metal coil back and forth multiple times they said I needed to take it to a service shop for repairs. Any ideas that would save me $125 at the service shop- I think I'd rather buy a new machine than spend the money to fix. Thanks!

We also had this problem. The solution that worked is to put the machine in maintenance and reset the scanner. Unplug the machine, put your finger on the menu key first and then re-plug the line while holding the menu key, in about 30 seconds all the lights will flash and the display will say maintenance. Release the menu Key and press 55 and this will reset the scanner; if scanner error comes up the machine will need to be serviced. Press stop and then 99 this will exit you out of maintenance. If the machine does not have an error try making a copy of blank sheet of paper and see if there is any improvement.

Move the corona wire tab back to the home position, this is a common problem when the corona wire tab is not in its homeposition it will leave a line whereever it is at unless it is in the home position. as you are looking at the drum unit thats all the way over on the right side where an arrow is located.

We have a Brother 4100 Fax Machine. When we send a fax or make a copy, there is a black bar about 2" wide that shows up the length of the page. It does not appear on incoming faxes. I believe it is...


Make sure the **** glass is clean, use a micro fiber cloth to wipe the debris/old toner or white out off the glass. restart the fax machine. If it prints this black line from a copy and it is 2" wide after you have cleaned both the glass and the white reference bar, most likley the scanner itself has failed.

Leaving a wide black line in right hand side of transaction


Pop open the fax document feeder, and look for a glass strip about 1cm wide, that runs from left to right across the machine.
You will probably see a few spots of dirt, or more commonly, a blob of white liquid paper stuck on the glass, on the side of the machine that corresponds to the black lines on your fax.
Clean this glass strip gently, using a soft cloth dampened with a mild detergent. I often use diluted windex. You may need to scrape liquid paper gently with your fingernail. Close the cover.

Next, put a blank sheet into the feeder and make a copy of the blank page. If you have cleaned it properly, the copy will be blank as well. If you still have a line, align it with the feeder and use this as a guide to show you where the glass may still have some **** stuck on it.

Good luck!

Black line about 1 1/2 inches wide down side of faxes or copies


if your RECEIVED faxes look good, then leroyal is dead on. you will need a new CIS which stands for contact image sensor. if you have an authorized brother service center nearby, they may be able to do it for 100 to 150.00, depending on their pricing of course. if rec'd faxes are bad also, pull drum out and make sure the blue tab on top of drum is all the way to the right side, although that usually only leaves about a 1/2" black band.
