Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

IntelliFax 4100 suddenly slow to print

The machine I've been using for 3 years is suddenly taking forever to print a fax job. Sometimes it even seems to time out before the print starts and I get a blank page. Connection is fine and the machine starts up but is very slow. Drum life is 82% and I'm getting no toner warnings. The copy function is working fine. There does seem to be more noise on the phone line.

If the dial tone sounds NOISY or SCRATCHY there probably is a phone line problem. Try changing the phone cord first. Are you using DSL phone service?

You have a very reliable fax machine.

Fax says its printing, nothing coming out


Iunplugged the machine for a minute then plugged it back in. Unfortunately, whatever faxes were waiting to be printed were gone and so was the activity log. But it works now.

Hi, I just wanted to know if the intellifax 4100 will print also. I was going to connect to my laptop.


Yes, we used to connect to the fax machine to print via parallel cable, but our new laptop computer does not have a parallel port, so we connect via USB now to use the Brother 4100 Intellifax as a printer. It prints very nicely. We downloaded the driver from BrotherUSA.com
http://www.brother-usa.com/Downloads/
and clicked on Fax Machines, then our Intellifax 4100e, then View Download and selected our operating system and language. Just a tip - When you decompress the download, in the location to decompress to, add a folder to hold the files named Brother4100 or something like that, then when you add the printer, select that folder as your "Have Disk" location. Hope it works well for you.

Brother intellifax 4100 prints full page all black


Good chance the High voltage power supply is bad. Not worth repairing. A new unit costs about 259.00.
