Question about Brother IntelliFAX 885MC Plain Paper Thermal transfer Fax

1 Answer

Black Smear I have a Brother IntelliFAX 950M. I get a 1 1/2 inch block of vertical black bars, separated by small white lines, on the left side of the page about a half-inch from the edge of the paper. I've cleaned everything I can see inside per the manual, tightened the cartridge ribbon and looked for anything that would cause that one section to always smear. Any ideas? Thanks.

Go to page13-9 routine maintenance section, where it says to clean the glass strip on top of it there is a white plate (shown) does that plate have ANY dirt or spots etc......?
It MUST be completely WHITE or it will give you black streaks. if it cannot be cleaned then use white out to cover. ( makesure it is completely dry before using).

Any advice on what board I should replace if the left half of the screen is no good, just showing white and black vertical bars? Right half is fine. Is the panel kaput?

There is a vertical black bar along the left side of my TV. It started as a thin yellow/white bar and has grown to be about 2 or 3 inches wide, blocking that portion of the screen.

The LCD wafer has gone bad, and more lines will begin to appear over time. It can be replaced but the cost may be comparable to replacing the entire television.

Line goes through page when fax is sent

Open up the document feeder and clean the small glass. If the line is more than 1/4 inch wide you have a bad scanner block.

Faxs being received have black on one side

Your scanner block is defective. Not worth repairing. Sorry!

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.

White vertical lines in image w/ 2 inch black bar horizontal.

the black bar is from the light tunnel collapsing. the white lines are from the colorwheel or the main board has a cold solder joint. replace the tunnel and colorwheel and have the main board looked at.
