Question about Fax Machines

1 Answer

Lines and breaks on docs received by other party.

When faxing documents the fax machine creates lines and breaks on the outgoing document. Believe i need to clean the drum but unsure how to go about doing that and do not have the manual for the machine as I bought it second hand. Its an old model, but it works great other wise. Think maybe I got some whiteout on the drum.

Hi
If you have lines when faxing out it cant be the drum,If you have lines with copy and receiving faxes then it can be the drum.
I think you problem is a dirty scanner glass.Check the glass and clean.

How do you send a Fax?


1 Load the document face up into the Document Tray.
2 Dial the receiving party's fax number.
3 Press [Start/Copy].
The fax begins sending.
Note
If an error occurs during sending, the fax beeps intermittently for a few seconds and an error
message appears on the LCD. If this happens, correct the problem and then press [Stop], then
try sending the document again.
The fax automatically redials if the receiving party does not answer or if the line is busy.

Although I read the manual, I cannot figure out where or how to clean the scanner which I assume is where my problem is. I only get vertical lines when copying. Faxing is fine. Can you help?


Faxing is fine , when sending or receiving ?
any way I do not think you need to clean the scanner . if you can send a fax and other party can get the fax your scanner is ok . If not you need to replace the scanners light which is a glass looking bar close to your document feeder

Does your customers that receive your faxes also complain about line n there faxes? You mite want to clean your CIS (contact Image Scanner) its a small 1/2" by about 8 to 11" long glass. It located along the line the orginal document is placed in the feeder. It will be located after the rollers in the document feeder, us alochol and/or windex. CIS is what is what reads the document as it goes by

This problem could be Phone line problem, or hardware failure or receiver's (the machine of the person whom you are sending the fax) machine problem and so on. First, let's check the line, if you have another Phone line, please dial from the number to your number, also, connect the currently connected line to a receiver and call a Land-line number, if the outgoing or incoming is ok, the proceed forward, otherwise, you telephone operator should check the line.


Sometimes, sending fax to a particular number doesn't work, to make sure, try sending a fax to another number.

If the line which is connected to the machine is extended from another machine such as Receiver, Switch, etc... unplug them and connect the fax machine directly to the Line.

It's also important to adjust the compatibility mode, to do this, follow the steps below:
  • Press Menu.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Fax.
  • Press OK.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Miscellaneous.
  • Press OK.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Compatibility.
  • Press the left or right arrow key to select Basic (for VoIP).
  • Press OK.
  • Press Stop/Exit.

If you place the scanning document/file on the auto-sheet feeder, you can help it pulling inside the passage or you can use the glass (flatbed) instead. Sometimes, this small mistakes with the sheet-feeder creates this problem. You can also clean the rollers inside the ADF (auto document feeder) passage.

If all of the above measure don't help, I would suggest you to call brother and seek their help. The rest is with mechanical or we can say hardware or firmware related issue. (use this form to contact Brother)

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
