Receivers complain that the fax is light/unreadable

I receive faxes fine. However, every time I send one, the person calls and says that it cannot be read. I used the fax machine to make a copy and it came out unclear. Is there something that needs to be cleaned or changed?
Thank you

More than likely (since the problem is with sending and copying only) the mirrors inside the fax machine need cleaning. However, depending on what type of fax machine this is, this could be a pretty involved job. If you are pretty comfortable with taking covers off, you might try it, but if its a pretty expensive fax machine, I would call a professional.
hope this helps!!!

Machine sends fine. Machine does not receive readable copy.


Is this connected to a computer? if so you can run head cleaning utility from the print driver properties. This will pump ink to the head and flush out the clogs. That is the easist way to make sure you don't have a head problem. If it is not connect to the PC then scroll thru the menu to see if there is a maintanence section and look for head cleaning.

Hope this Helps

We can send faxes but we can not receive faxes. The fax machine that sends the fax tell it that our line is busy. Is that a machine problem or a phone line problem?


Problem lies in your Receive Mode setting. If you don't have a dedicated phone line for the fax machine, you need to set it up for either Manual where you answer every call or Fax/Tel whereby the Fax machine determines if the incoming call is a fax or phone call. Instructions per Intellifax 4100 Manual.

Select a Receive Mode
Choose the mode that best suits your needs by pressing the Mode button
repeatedly until the FAX and FAX/TEL lights show the setting you want to use.
Manual
You must answer every call yourself.
The Brother machine must be started manually
to receive faxes.
Fax
For use with a dedicated fax line.
Every call is answered as a fax.
Fax/Tel
For receiving fax and voice calls on one line.
The FAX answers every call and receives a fax or
double rings for you to pick up a voice call.
TAD
For use with an answering device.
The TAD answers every call and stores voice messages.
Fax messages are printed.

The person you are sending to has a busy phone line.

Call your cell phone from the fax machine to test.

Print Size Changes


This maybe down to the other persons fax machine if your copy is coming out perfect try sending it to a different fax number to see what happens.

If the same thing happens press the menu key and you are looking for a heading call setup or machine settings within one of those will be TTI settings and make sure that reduction send is not on.

Hope this helps sorry a little vague but have manual at work

Thanks J

Stretched text on faxes


In my experience, this type of problem is on the sender's end and not the receivers. We have sent faxes before and while they are sending, the paper on our end misfeeds and the received copy on the other end is stretched and unreadable. One way to determine this is to have a few different people from different locations send you faxes. If all the faxes have this problem, then it is a good bet it is a problem on your end. If not, then it is probably a problem with this particular sender's fax machine. I hope this helps.
