It could be that YOU have a nosiy phone line or the recipient has a DIGITAL phone service.

Listen to your dial-tone with a regular phone plugged into the wall jack.

We received a cople of faxes from different sources. There are lines down all the pages except the top (there is readable text there) and the lines are from the letters (like they have been stretched) like...


That sounds exactly like the sending fax is document is stalling, so a single line across the page gets sent for a few seconds. You can easily check your own machine's scan and print quality by putting anything in the doc feeder and copying it.
To test the print section alone, use the menus (or I think your model has a separate Report button) to print out the Help list.
It's possible that both your sending correspondents have slick, hard document feeder rollers, but you'd think they would have heard complaints from others. I can't think of anything at your end that would stretch out your prints, and there's no Bulletin about it on Brother's service website.
On the off chance you have a glitch in your machine's memory fouling it up, you can clear it out. This page has instructions for clearing out only the image memory (91) or all of it (01). It may or may not help, but only takes a couple of minutes to try.

Intermittently, the confirmation page on the fax says the fax failed (didn't go thru) but it actually did. Why is this? The confirmation page is printing false results, indicating the fax failed to go...


This is because some faxes don't have Error Correction Mode capabilities.

If there's a slight distortion on the line, the receiving machine (without ECM) receives a fax with some minor errors. And even though for a human eye the resulting fax page is perfectly readable, for the machine, that thinks only zeros and ones, there was an error detected in the data, and hence the trasmission failed.
Faxes with ECM when they detect an error, ask the sending fax to re-send the last portion of data, and this way can bring the transmission to a 100% successful end.

So the only thing you can do is ask your recipients to upgrade their fax machines to an ECM-capable model :)

Cant receive faxes


First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.

Receiving multiple page fax on Brother Intellifax 4100e


it may be the memory, try switching to direct printing instead of going into memory, if it prints you should change the memory.

more then likely the sending fax had a problem and did not send you the complete fax. You should have them resend the page you're missing.
Hope that helps...

Problem with page cut-off


See pages 92 of the manual to "rotate the white roller"

The procedure rotates the roller a quarter turn each time.
You might have to repeat it a few times in order for thit to be set at the right position.
I tested mine using the copy function as well as a TEST FAX to a another fax machine.
Good luck!!

Receiving a fax


It will be a problem with the other ends fax when it sends its stretches out the fax too much and it transmits accross two pages. The other fax is telling your machine to print out accross two pages in the transmission. Older faxes are the worst for it.

What's up; could it be the phone line?


yup, noise coming across line will do that, have it checked. Could be sending partys line being noisy too, you could also hook up a phone and listen for crackles/noise on line.

99 percent chance it is noisy/poor phone line.
