    Yes, I have the problem with the automatic document feeder. Instead of it taking one page at a time it "grabs" hold of several.

    This just started happening 2 days ago. I bought this fax machine used on Amazon about 3 months ago. It has worked great up until now.

    Any suggestions?

    I'll look into it & see if that's the problem. Thank you very, very much!

    To ensure I am clear about which part of your machine is malfunctioning, I believe that you are feeding your document through the ADF(automatic document feeder) on the top of your scanner cover. This is where your documents are double feeding. Is this correct?

    Can you tell me approximately how long you have been using your Fax machine?

The separation pad is worn. Thats what keeps more than 1 from going in. It is a rubber rectangle shaped part probably on the upper part of the document feeder that you lift up. They ware out. Lawrence

How do i change the ink on a brother intellifax 2480c?

Pull down the ink door and then push down on the ink to be replaced, it is locked and spring loaded. When you push down on the ink it will release and allow you to remove it from the machine. Just throw it away and install the new ink in the revese order.

We are trying to replace the black ink cartridge on our brother intellifax 2480C printer but even after loading the new cartridge the printer is indicating that there is no cartridge and the black ink...

Did you have the no cartridge prompt on before you changed the cartridge? If no, then did you remove all packing material. Is this the first time you have changed the cartridge?

Let me know

I need to email a printed document, is there any way to scan it and save it as a file on my computer?

I also have the same machine and it says in the book using you adf as a flatbed scanner, unfortunatley it does'nt tell you how.
If this machine doesn't do what they say than it should be recalled. after all they''re the ones who claim it does in there manual. very misleading!
