Question about Brother MFC 4800 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

My fax Machine has lines going each page that prints out

Our Brother MFC-4800 Fax Machine has lines through every single piece of paper that comes out. It doesn't matter if I make a copy of something or if I receive a fax. It started out that there were only white vertical lines going through the paper so I changed the toner and the drum unit, and now the white lines are still there but they are also accompanied by black vertical lines on top and paper and bottom. Can this be fixed or do I need a new fax machine?

Get a can of air, open the unit and blow it out.
Also, clean the glass.
That should help solve the problem

My brother mfc 4800 wont copy, it keeps asking for the fax number. Please help


Your fax machine uses the same line as your phone. You will need to read your manual to decide after how many rings you want the fax machine to answer. Generally should be after your answering machine. Your fax number will be your telephone number.Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

Machine# 4800mfc With incoming faxes the machine prints 2 pages- the 2ND blank. It wastes one page for everyone it prints. Do you have a solution?


This could indicate that your "paper size" setting is not correct for the paper you are using or the "reduction" setting may not be correct.

Brother support suggests that the "Reduction" value be set to "Auto Reduction" = ON

To set "Auto Reduction" to ON:

1) Press the <Menu/Set> key
2) Navigate up or down to "Fax" - press <Menu/Set>
3) Navigate up or down to "Setup Receive" - press <Menu/Set>
4) Navigate up or down to "Auto Reduction" - press <Menu/Set>
5) Navigate up or down until "ON" appears - press <Menu/Set>
6) Press <Stop/Exit> to return to normal function

I hope this will help with your extra received page problem.

Fax is printing other fax machine's outbond faxes


Yikes!! Get your phone company involved. Remember that a fax machine uses a normal home style phone line. Something is seriously messy with the phone lines in the building

Receiving 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.
