How do you print on both sides of a sheet of paper

Unless you are using a duplex "Multifunctional" copier(with fax.) most plain fax. machines are not duplex and will only print on one side of the page.
If you have a machine capable of rx duplex printing please specify make and model for additional help.

Unwanted verticle line on fax copies

Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page. If this is the cause you will also find that faxes you send to other people will also have this line (although faxes you receive are not affected by this problem with your machine).

To fix the problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Fax feeder is pulling sheets through at the same time

Sounds like the separation pads in the paper tray are worn out. You can contact Brother and purchase the parts from them. It should be less than $10. as long as the paper is being pulled from the tray it sounds like the rollers are okay.

Pulling in multiple sheets

Needs a separator pad kit installed. Call a local tech to replace it, or if you are brave, you can google and find the parts and try yourself.

Open the front of the fax machine. Then pull down the the tray that has the down arrow imprinted on it. Locate the glass strip towards the back, just behind the center roller. Use a cloth and rubbing alcohol to clean the glass and that should remove the black line.

Sheet feed won't work

When you reinstall the blue plastic piece underneath, the white plastic sheet that closes over the glass must hang over the blue plastic piece, not tuck under it.

When receiving a fax, it seems that several pages of paper always

you mean you're getting 1 or 2 extra sheets when machine is printing faxes? Feed roller and separation pad that pull paper from the tray are will help in the short term.

Fax double feeds sheets

This may occur if:
-the paper is too thick or too thin
-the roller mechanism is not properly aligned or has worn out
-the sheets of paper stick together

things you can try:
-unload the paper in the main tray and bend the stack of paper to loosen it up. Reload the paper to the main tray

Hope this helps!
