Customer: the printer is approx. year & half Brother & is a HL-3170cdw
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: PC - Windows 7
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: several weeks - I placed a new black ink cartridge and got 20 copies then it said I was out of ink. I put a new cartridge in then the machine said the drum life needed replacing. So I ordered new ones and replace all 4, that's when I kept getting black lines through my documents
