Re: faded areas showing up on copy

Jhahn, It sounds like your machine needs a through cleaning from a repair company. There are many good independant vendors out there that will come out for less than $100 for a time and material call on your fax. If you want to try to do something on your own, you can take a can of air and spray the air throughout the machine. If you give me the city you live in, I can give you some ideas for some companies close by if the canned air doesn't work. john

Incoming faxes have black line running through the centre

If it is just from incoming faxes and not from anything you print/copy then it is the sender's fax machine that is dirty. If everything you do has that line, try cleaning the scanner glass and corona wire.

No print on copies or faxes

This is a clogged print head. This happens if the printer has been off for a long time or if the cartridge was removed and the unit left empty for any time.
Take out the cartridge and press the print part on a piece of paper. Any black lines? If not, you will need a new cartridge. Wiping the print head gently with a Q-tip moistened with PURE alcohol (99%) may restore printing.

Can't fax or copy on brother mfc3240c machine

Sounds like you may have a small obstruction in the scanner feed. This would inhibit making copies and sending faxes. Lift this section up slightly to inspect for small pieces of paper or dust. Blowing it out with compressed air would also be a good idea.

It's not sending or receiving faxes, but line is working

Hi there,

May I know what exactly the model that you have?

Initially, first check the settings of the machine if it was set to tel/fax or fax settings. Check if there was an error message appear on the unit or better to print out a copy of the fax transmission status. Fax machine will print out a copy of the transmission if it has a problem or it has a communication error on the line or in the other side whose receiving the a fax.

Kindly update me again here.

Sounds like you may need to clean the optics. Open up the area where you insert the original to copy, there you will find a small long glass that needs to be cleaned, I would suspect there is white out on this causing you lines or it may just be dirty.

Hope this helps...

Fax machine

Ok , I want to clarify. You have a line on all printing? When you receive a fax, when you print and when you copy?
If so, you need to replace the cartridge with the drum.

If It only is when you fax out and make a copy, then open the scanner and clean the strip over the CCD assembly in the scanner.
What happens is that something, Whiteout, ink from a page windes up getting on the scanner glass and as the original passes over it, it scans as a line and shows up on the paper as a line.

Lines show on printed copies from Muratec MFX 2500

Probably a bad cleaning blade in the toner cartridge or a dirty charge wire.

Look for a small slider on top of the cartridge.
