Check carefully the glass, a very small point of ink or anything else can cause the black stripe. usually  it is that the problem. use windex to clean it.

The faxed copy has a big black line in the middle of the paper. A new toner and a new drum have been installed but the line is still there. Help! Ruth


Clean the scanner glass. This is the smaller piece of glass that is located just to the left of the large original glass. Or if you have an older or smaller model Brother the strip of glass is going to be located under/inside of the port where your documents are fed into the machine. This operation panel usualy just pops open and you can find the strip of glass inside. Just clean it with a bit of glass cleaner that has been sprayed on a soft cloth. Make a copy with the machine to test if the line is gone. If the copy mode comes out ok then your outgoing faxes will be ok. You can also make a copy before you start the cleaning process as the copy with the line on it can aid you in determining what area the glass needs to be cleaned.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

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!

My HP laserjet 2600n is printing very faint on one side, what might the problem be?


Look inside right where the drum sits, there's a strip of glass that the laser writes data thru, wipe it carefully with a dry cloth. Usually toner dust covers part of the glass causing light areas, a good idea to also wipe out any loose toner inside at the same time...The glass is above the drum and shines thru when the drum shutter is open.

Right side of printed page is faded


pull out your drum unit and look inside machine above where the drum would be. you should see a black assembly that runs left to right with a "****" glass. may need a flashlight. clean that glass off with a clean rag. sometimes toner "scatter" will get on glass and cause this.

let us know,

Clear vertical lines when printing that do not clear up by shaking toner


does it do it on copies and internal test as well???
1- check the thin strip of glass inside the machine and make sure it is clean, look at the toner are there any line on there that corresponds?? yes then replace.it could be coming from the drum or toner. I beleive the drum is a seperate piece from the toner

Right side of faxes (or copies) have 1-1/2" black line


Try changing the Drum Unit again....it cannot be anything else besides a worn out drum cleaning blade.

Inch and a half black line down page


not sure what model fax you have, did not specify.

1-check to see if there is a white metal plate opposite the glass.
is there any toner or dark marks on it ? clean or use white out to cover make sure it is dry before using.

2-check the black spongy roller inside the machine

3-it maybe that you have a two unit cartridge, one for toner one for the drum ( which is what it sounds like) pull out and check.
It should be a shiny cylinder, does it have a black ring around it?

4- the last thing to check is the fuser, on its way out of the fax it passes two rollers on on top of the other, it may be a little difficult to see, may have to remove a cover, how do they look?

Copies and outgoing fax quality


your machine most likely has toner spills in it.
if you send faxes face side down follow these instructions ;
1- take out toner
2- look for thin glass strip on bottom inside the machine
3-wipe clean

if you make copies side up then do the same except look for glass strip on the upper side of machine

BLACK INK LINES ON INCOMING FAXES KX-FL511


It's time to change NEW DRUM UNIT..and that's why your Toner will Not Last Longer because unnecessary toner (the black lines) will be on the copy every time the fax comes or you make a copy.
