Brother MFC-8710DW / 8810DW / 8910DW Copy Print Quality Problem



Have you ever run into a situation where the print outs sent from your computer to your Brother MFC-8710DW printer turn out perfect, but when you try to make a copy, there is a vertical line or marks on the output? One of our customers has recently come across this problem. After switching out the toner and the drum, the problem persisted. Print quality issues when you try to copy are not always caused by the toner and the drum but can sometimes due to dirt or correction fluid inside your printer. Luckily we were able to help our customer in diagnosing the problem and helped to resolve the issue. Today, we would like to share this quick and simple solution with you to fix the print quality problem for copies on your Brother MFC-8710DW printer.

Vertical black line appears in copies and not on print pages:

Black vertical lines on copies are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid on the glass strip or the corona wire on the drum is dirty.

The corona wire is very easy to clean, all you need to do is pull out the drum unit and slide the small green slider on the drum 5-6 times to clean the wire.

If cleaning the corona wire did not help, you will then need to thoroughly clean the glass strip, scanner glass, and also the white bar and white plastic above them with the following steps:

(1) Turn off the machine’s power switch.

(2) Unplug the telephone line cord first, disconnect all cables, and then unplug the power cord from the AC power outlet.

(3) (MFC-8810DW and MFC-8910DW) Unfold the ADF document support and then open the ADF cover. Clean the white bar and the scanner glass strip underneath it with a soft lint-free cloth moistened with water. Close the ADF cover and fold the ADF document support.

(4) Lift the document cover. Clean then white plastic surface and the scanner glass underneath it with a soft lint-free cloth moistened with water.

(5) In the ADF unit, clean the white bar and the glass strip underneath it with a soft lint-free cloth moistened with water.

(6) Close the document cover.

The Brother MFC-8710DW printer is a multifunction laser unit with print speed up to 40 pages per minute. The printer is designed to fit nicely as a workhorse printer in a micro office, small office, or workgroup. The Brother MFC-8710DW printer is designed to print, copy, scan, and fax.  There is a front-mounted USB for plugging in a flash drive and printing a quick document or image for the Brother MFC-8710DW printer.

Graphics output is similarly good enough for any internal business need. Depending on your tastes, you may or may not consider it good enough for, say, PowerPoint handouts when you need to convey a sense of professionalism. Photo quality is more than good enough for printing Web pages with recognizable photos, and even suitable for printing photos in company or client newsletters and the like.

We at Toner Spot hope you find the information to be helpful and please contact us if we can answer any of your printer related questions. Toner Spot provides a full line of printing supplies for home and office and is a favorite supplier among schools and public institutions, and we would love the chance to serve you as well.

Brother HL 5340D and HL 5370DW Toner Reset Instruction for Brother TN620/TN650 Toners

Have you ever been stuck in the middle of an important print job when the “Toner Low” warning light keeps popping up and would not let you print? It is not always convenient to find a store nearby that is open to pick up a new one or wait for a new shipment to arrive from an online order. 

We recently have received inquiry from one of our customer that he needed a TN-650 cartridge to be delivered on the same day. He also told us that the usual reset instruction that he found online would not work with his printer because the Brother HL-5340D and HL-5370DW models do not have key pads.


We shared with him another way to reset his toner counter that helped him finish his print job. And today, we will share with you these reset instructions if you have the Brother HL-5340D or HL-5370DW models.

Brother HL-5340D and HL-5370DW Toner Reset Instruction

1. Turn off the printer and open the front cover.

2. Press and hold the Go-button down.

3. Turn on the machine while still holding the Go-button down.

4. When all three LEDs are lit, release the Go-button.

5. Press the Go-button twice, and all three LEDs should be lit again.

6. Press the Go-button six times.

7. Close the front cover and the toner counter should be reset.


It is true that when I first learned of these instructions, they brought back memories of Super Nintendo joystick moves (okay, I gave away my age). However, they do work and will be able to save you some money in the long run or perhaps get one out of a printing jam.

We hope you find the information in this article to be helpful and we hope that you will visit us at www.toner-spot.com for discounts and savings on high quality and reliable toner cartridges.
