We have a Brother 4100 Fax Machine. When we send a fax or make a copy, there is a black bar about 2" wide that shows up the length of the page. It does not appear on incoming faxes. I believe it is...


Make sure the **** glass is clean, use a micro fiber cloth to wipe the debris/old toner or white out off the glass. restart the fax machine. If it prints this black line from a copy and it is 2" wide after you have cleaned both the glass and the white reference bar, most likley the scanner itself has failed.

My Brother Intellifax 4100 sends faxes that appear with a solid black line on the side--i think it's the right hand side. It prints copies the same way. How can I fix it?


if the faxes going out have the line but coming in print out clear then the glass at the document feeder is dirty and probably needs cleaning.. check under the feeder cover and look for a glass piece where the documents go in this picks up dirt and typex and when it scans the document it thinks its on the original.. a soft cloth and some glass cleaner should clean it off..

MY BROTHER INTELLIFAX 4100 PRINTS LINES ON MY PRINTED PAGES.


Try moving the blue slider on the cartridge back and forth 10 times to clean the charge wire. If this doesn't work, you most likely have a bad drum.

Fax says its printing, nothing coming out


Iunplugged the machine for a minute then plugged it back in. Unfortunately, whatever faxes were waiting to be printed were gone and so was the activity log. But it works now.

4100 when I copy I get a black line down the middle Ok after cleaning inside top cover, but,comes back after a few copies. Printing and sending fax ok.


Try printing out a report. If the line is still there you need to use the wire cleaner on your print cartridge or if that doesn't work, replace the drum unit.

Hi, I just wanted to know if the intellifax 4100 will print also. I was going to connect to my laptop.


Yes, we used to connect to the fax machine to print via parallel cable, but our new laptop computer does not have a parallel port, so we connect via USB now to use the Brother 4100 Intellifax as a printer. It prints very nicely. We downloaded the driver from BrotherUSA.com
http://www.brother-usa.com/Downloads/
and clicked on Fax Machines, then our Intellifax 4100e, then View Download and selected our operating system and language. Just a tip - When you decompress the download, in the location to decompress to, add a folder to hold the files named Brother4100 or something like that, then when you add the printer, select that folder as your "Have Disk" location. Hope it works well for you.

Brother IntelliFAX 4100 shooting out blank sheets


The machine told you poor line quality. Try a different phone line to verify. Try it at a friends house to verify it. If you are using Vonage, that is the problem. I have Vonage and every fax I test with has some issues with poor line.

The doc feed asm needs to be rebuilt. Only white lithium grease is used to lube the gears and avery light oil on the shafts. All parts are available from brother. I can get the parts if you have trouble obtaining them. It is relatively easy to rebuild and I charge in my area of Clearwater Florida, about 100.00 parts and labor.
