Has anyone cleaned it out?
Sadly, such devices might required some dusting and cleaning, but not every makers tells us this.
I bought a refurbed Brother MFC 9700 last year. I've been in Vt. for the last 6 months, but I started to have difficulty with it before I left last May. It had been working flawlessly, but at some point, it started printing "dirty" copies, both faxes, copies, and any type of printout. The background of the paper is somewhat greyish, with the greatest concentration of grey at the left and right sides of the paper, but with the whole page involved. I've cleaned the corona wire in the drum (which says it's still 96% full), cleaned the printer's scanner window, adjusted the print density to the lowest setting. Nothing helps. I'm still on my first toner cartridge and the machine has had very little use. Has anyone else had this problem? When I started to get some grey on the MFC 4800 I have in Vt., cleaning the scanner window helped.
