    We also have dark print. We changed the cartridge and now everything that prints from our Brother Intellifax 2800 Laser is dark over the whole page. It looks like it is toasted, like the old thermal paper would turn when it got hot. I tried lowering the contrast and turning on the toner save feature. The pages still come out dark.

    first page prints fine, every successive page is darker and darker until it is completely unreadable, this usually takes about 4 pages.

Fax machine print light


When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.

Normally the problem is low toner.

I need to lighten print on my richo2210L fax machine


To adjust the contrast, Press Darkness. Each time you press the button, the LED labeled with the selected mode turns on. You can choose from the following darkness modes:
1>Lighten: works well with dark print.
2>Normal: works well with standard typed or printed documents.
3>Darken: works well with light print or faint pencil markings.

My brother fax machine - only receives black pages


do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.

- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).

Hope this will put your Brother on the track

Ricoh FAX2900L printing too dark


check the scanner white roller witch is under the front cover where you feed in the paper to be scanned sometimes this gets dirty you can take it out by releasing the levers on each side..this also sets the density for copying.. if you have just put a newe cartridge in also check that it is seated properly as the contacts for the charge might not be connecting properly
