Question about Brother IntelliFax-4100e Fax

1 Answer

Smells hot and doesn't work

Intellifax 4100e was working until it smelled like something was burning. At that point it would not do anything. Is there a way I can remove the cover to see what might be damaged inside the machine?
Do you think it's worth repairing?

Unfortunatley, with laser printers it is not unusual to notice a burning smell. Sometimes that could mean that there is paper jammed inside your fuser assembly and it is being burned when power is applied. However, there could be a number of reasons why the machine won't function. My recommendation is to have a certified technician look at the machine for you. It may cost you $45-$75 to have someone check it out for and tell you what the cost would be to fix.

My brother intellifax 4100e is feeding double my document


theres a flat rubber seperator it has a springy metal backing on it, on the part that opens up on the feeder that is probably worn out.
Best way is to replace it ...its a cheap part. you can clean it real good with alchohol, and it may work better for a while but the part should be replaced.it applies pressure to the roller and seperated the second sheet from feeding

My brother intellifax 4100e is not recieving faxes we can send and I called the fax it works and we can copy but cant recieve.


Does the machine actually answer the incoming call? If so does it give an error code? Are you using the genuine brother line lead? Finally make sure the line lead is plugged into the "line" socket and not the "tel" socket.

We have the Brother Intellifax 4100E. It was working fine up until last week. Then it started not receiving faxes. We can copy, and send faxes, and receive the confirmation. I have checked the mode button...


Try calling the fax machine from your mobile and see if it picks up or if anything shows up on the screen of the fax machine. Is it possible that you have plugged the fax machine into the wrong telephone line? Try sending a fax to your mobile phone and see that the number is correct.

I have a Brother IntelliFax-4100e fax that speed dial button 04 needed to be changed when we changed our phone system to include a 9 at the beginning of the number. Did that, it was 'accepted', but still...


go into menu, then to fax (hit set) then one touch speed dials (hit set) then hit the 04 one touch button and it should show you what is programmed. You can hit number 1 to change, type the number with a 9 in front of it(ie. 9+1+area code+7 digit number) then hit set and program a name for the number, hit set until the fax beeps to accept the change. You can test it with a blank cover sheet. That's how I have mine at work set up and it works fine. Hope this helps.

How do you shut off the 4100e?


There is no switch. Most fax machines are expected to be left on in case a fax call comes in the middle of the night. If that's not a concern in your case, unplug the machine. If the plug is hard to reach under a desk or something, you might want to get a power strip with a switch on it. As long as you're at it, get one with surge protection for both the power and phone lines, and your fax might be saved from sudden death in the event of some guy driving into a power pole down the street.

Intellifax 4100e is not printing faxes says printing online? Or it stops in the middle of a fax and says same.


try parameter reset function (this will change some settings back to default)
hit these keys all within 2 seconds!!!
function (or menu) * 2 8 6 4
should say maint.mode: then hit
"9 1 set" and then "9 9 set" That will usually clear out any brainfarts in the system. This also works for code 77 errors (9 9 set is the actual parameter reset)
