    Hi everybody.

    My printer (Brother DCP 1510) is showing these horizontal gray lines. As an example I photocopied a blank page and, as you can see in the pic attached, the lines go in every page (that's not an optical effect, they're the actual very faded gray lines).

    Should I change the drum? I can get one via Amazon, but I cannot take it for service because of the quarantine.

    Thanks in advance.

    It looks like your drum was exposed to light at some point and weakened the drum area. Bands are spaced evenly and if you rolled the paper, where they touch is the circumference of a drum. I would put a new drum unit it it. Print problems are either Drum, Toner, or Laser. Toner wouldn't cause this problem and laser would be evenly spaced lines or blanks across the page.
