Brother MFC 9560CDW Print Quality Problem: Black Lines Down the Print on Copies and Scans

For a sturdy and reliable printer like the Brother MFC-9560CDW, it’s not often that you would run into print quality issues. If print quality issues do occur, more often than not, the issues are the results of your toners or drum failing. However, we would like to point out that this might not always be the case and you could be throwing away perfectly good parts and replacing them without resolving the problem.

We have recently received a call from one of our customers complaining about thick black lines on his copies. He has tried to replace the toner cartridges and the drum to no avail. After our technician spoke with him, we found out that the black lines were only happening when he tries to make a copy or scan documents, but the normal printouts from his computer were perfectly fine. The problem became obvious that all he needed to do was to perform some routine cleaning maintenance on his machine and there was no need to spend extra money to replace his existing toners and drum. He could have saved a lot of money!

We decided that we will share this experience and provide a guide to perform cleaning maintenance for Brother MFC-9560CDW printer so that we might be able to help another person save some money.

Below are the step by step instructions on how to clean all the laser scanning parts of your printer, which are taken from the official Advanced User Guide from Brother:

Cleaning the Scanner:

1. Turn off the machine’s power switch. Unplug the telephone line cord first, disconnect all cables, and then unplug the power cord from the power outlet.

2. Unfold the ADF document support (1) and then open the ADF cover (2). Clean the white bar (3) and the scanner glass strip (4) underneath it with a soft lint-free cloth moistened with water. Close the ADF cover and fold the ADF document support.

3. Lift the document cover (1). Clean the white plastic surface (2) and scanner glass (3) with the cloth.

4. In the ADF unit, clean the white bar (1) and the glass strip (2) underneath it with the lint-free soft cloth moistened with water.

5. Reconnect and plug your machine and turn the power back on.

Cleaning the Laser Scanning Windows
