1 Answer

Light fax Our Brother ItelliFax 2800 is having troubles. The faxes are printing out really light. We have changed the toner and it still is light. I have tried changing the setting in the menu as per this website and still it is getting lighter. Is there anything else that can help?

    The drum and toner were recently replaced and last week I turned off the toner save function last week and it didn't make much of a difference. There is a vertical section that is lighter than the others. Any other suggestions?

This could be a couple of different things. The first is that you are running out of ink or toner. Or you could have your toner save turned on. You can conserve toner using this feature.
When you set Toner Save to On, print
appears lighter. The default setting is Off.
1 Press Menu/Set, 1, 6, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select On (or Off).
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.

Light copies


You may have your machine set to print in "toner save" mode. Check your machine settings by printing a list. Also, some generic toner cartridges have too much polymer in the mix and will print light copies. If you change back to OEM toner, you may have to change the drum too, as the extra polymer stays in the drum unit and weakens the mix.

Incoming fax quality


Are you using genuine Brother supplies? Generic supplies are the main reason for print quality issues. Have you ever changed thr drum unit ? Expensive! You can buy a new machine and get a new drum and toner for a little bit more.
