  Brother MFC-7340 printing streaky lines/blank pages

Status in cups package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I correctly installed a brother MFC-7340 all-in-one laser printer
  according to the brother linux drivers website. The scanner is working
  fine and also the printer except that the page starts streaking
  usually on the 2nd/3rd page and every page after that comes out blank.
  I don't see this issue with the copier at all (I copied up to 10 pages
  with no problems), although after the printer starts streaking and
  gives blank pages, it messes up the toner so that when I try to copy,
  it gives blank pages. When this happens, I take out the toner and give
  it a good shake to have it work again.

  Everything seems fine and dandy. The computer is connected, all the
  drivers are installed and the only problem is with this 2nd/3rd page

  I am running 9.10 (karmic), 64-bit and the printer is connected via
  USB. I installed the cupswrapper and lpr drivers. I also followed the
  special instructions for 64-bit versions of ubuntu mentioned on the
  brother website.

  Some details:
  dpkg  -l  |  grep  Brother
