Why do I have yellow horizonal lines on printed page

I mean changed all toner and drums. I still have 64% on belt, fuser, and PF kit. I have done a color calibration. I have done 3 drum cleanings and first one showed yellow on page, but last 2 showed nothing on pages. I have printed numerous test pages and demo pages and all were clear and sharp, but some had yellow horizontal yellow lines across page. I recently printed a "Printers Setting Report" and first page had yellow on it and last 4 pages were clear.

Sounds like a faulty toner cartridge. Are all the cartridges OEM?

Good chance the High voltage power supply is bad. Not worth repairing. A new unit costs about 259.00.

SOURCE: Print quality bad

To clear white vertical lines from printed documents follow the steps listed below:

NOTE: The use of non-Brother or generic toner may cause white vertical lines.

Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic drum units and/or toner cartridges, or refill their Brother toner cartridge. Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at pre-set temperatures that are matched exactly to each of our individual toner formulations. Each individual component is designed to work with the other to ensure quality and reliability. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability.
The Brotherlimited warranty does not apply to any problem that is caused by the useof unauthorized third party drum units, toner cartridges or toner.

1. First, power OFF the unit for safety. The ON/OFF switch is located on the left, rear side of the unit.

2. Open the scanner cover by pulling the blue lever located below the control panel toward you and lifting the cover. Make sure the cover is completely open.

3. Remove the drum unit by holding each side of the drum by its handles and gently lifting the drum forward (toward) you.

4. Place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of disposablepaper to avoid spilling and scattering the toner. Make sure thedirections and DR-250 stickers are facing you.

5. With the drum removed from the Brother machine, clean the laser glass. The laser glass is located inside the Brother machine where the drum was located. It is a piece of glass, about 1/2 inch wide and approximately 8 inches long, located on the bottom of the inside. Gently wipe the glass with a clean soft DRY cloth. DO NOT use isopropyl alcoholor any liquid to clean the glass.

6. Gently pull up on the mauve lever to turn the toner cartridge toward you until it stops. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit by gently sliding it out of the drum unit. ***Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, immediately wipe it off or wash it with cold water.

7. Gently rock the toner cartridge from side to side five or six times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Then, reset the toner into the drum (be sure it clicks into place). Gently push on the mauve lever to turn the toner cartridge away from you until it stops.

8. With the DR-250 sticker facing you turn the drum upside down. There is a blue tab located on the right side. Slide the blue tab back and forth seven times to clean the corona wire. When finished, make sure the blue tab is locked to the right side of the drum.

9. Reset drum unit in Brother machine. Close the cover securely.

Print the help list to test the unit by pressing the REPORTS key located on the control panel and then (1) on the dial pad.

If the white vertical lines still continue, the drum unit will need to
be replaced.

If the purchase date of the original drum or replacement drum is less than 90 days (within the warranty of the drum), contact Brother Customer Service Center at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) . The center is open Monday-Friday, 9:00am to 7:00 pm EST, excluding holidays.

SOURCE: 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,

HL-5250 report shows fuser and laser life at 0% and PF kit 1 at 12%


The fuser is a separate component to the drum and toner in this printer. It has a much longer life than them but will run out eventually. Sadly a fuser unit is not a commercially available consumable for this printer either. I would recommend contatcing a printer technicain or Brother directly for a quote on replacing this part.

The printer has a build up of toner on the drum/fuser, a maintenance cleaning done by certified technician of the printer would fix this problem.

Black vertical lines on laserjet 4650 print out


99% of the time, this is the imaging drum or fuser.

Pull the imaging unit (same as imaging drum - they are interchangable) and examine the greenish glass tube. Does it have black streaks along the same lines that are on the paper? If so, then it needs cleaning / replacing. Don't touch the glass!! Use Q-tips and rubbing alcohol to gently clean the lines off. Air dry and replace into the machine.

If the imaging unit doesn't have lines, then it's the fuser. This can be replaced as part of a maintenance kit. If you've been using the printer regularly for more than 9-12 months, It's probably time for a Maintenance Kit for the machine anyway, which includes a fuser. I recommend Parts Now (http://www.partsnow.com/) for replacement kits, which have instructions on how to install with them.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N is now printing all documents with lines/streaks all down the left margin of the page. What do I clean or replace to get rid of these unsightly lines printing on every page?


you can try printing a page in black only, then one page each in the 3 other SINGLE colors: Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow. this will eliminate/ confirm one of these causing problem.

the replacement of Transfer Belt Cleaner or Cleaner Assembly is another to try after the above separate-color thing. see if there's a status page of life remaining on replaceable items, including the Transfer belt assy.

i'll assume you didn't scan the job- - this isn't a multifunction scanner/printer type machine?

ok, next in line is to check the Fuser unit, the part on the upper left side/top of printer. if the same streaks appear on the Main fuser rollers, these fuser units cost about 350 bucks. there is also a Fuser Kit, which costs much less, but its job is to add Fuser Oil to the fuser unit and keep paper and ink from sticking.
a guy could suffer sticker shock from the costs of running one of these, considering you could drop a grand buying all 4 drum units, a fuser unit, and a transfer belt assy. . . .

Laser printer


I developed a color print that has all 4 principal pure toner colors in vertical and horizontal bars that are at least 2" wide.  If perhaps you are having a toner problem only one of the colors will be affected.  If all colors are affected there are two possible issues.  The drum, which I think is actually a belt, and the other the fuser assembly.
The fuser is a heater and pressure roller system that presses and melts toner onto a page.   The drum is an imaging device that picks up toner where images should be and transfers toner onto a piece of paper.  Any toner not transfered from the drum / belt is destined for a waste toner hopper.  If the belt is not being cleaned properly or has an image or flaw artifact that cannot be cleaned / erased you always get that printed on a page.

Image Drum
