Question about Brother IntelliFax-2820 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Printing quality problem

I have a Brother Intellifax 2800 that I sometimes use to make copies. Lately, the image quality deterioratyes after the 6th page in that each successive page has larger and larger areas of black clustered streaks. My toner cartridge is reading low, but I would assume each page should get lighter??? In addition, when many copies are being made, there is a burnt aroma from the fax machine and the printed pages are warm. Is it time for an image drum replacement? I cannot find this situation in my manual. Walter Sawicki

Horizontal lines and tones specks around text


Only known causes are a dirty corona wire or a dirty/bad drum. If you know the drum is good, a thorough cleaning of the drum and cleaning the corona wire should clear up your printing.

When I send a fax from our Brother Intellifax 2800, the person receiving the fax gets the fax but half of the page is blacked out, what is the problem?


sounds like your cis (contact image sensor) which lights up and reads your original, is bad. that component is located under the keypad/control panel. if you make a copy, it should also be partially balck if that is the problem.

Poor Quality


If you can copy ok you have effectively ruled out your machine as you have used both the scanning and printing mechanism of the machine.

It will probably be the fax on the other end as if it sends a poor quality page that's all your machine can receive, a poor line can also cause problems if it is from multiple faxes. If so have your provider check the line (you probably hear static on the line).

Problem with printing...


First and most important with Brother machines is , you need to use genuine brother supplies. Almost every time I service a brother and I find generic toner and drums cause the print quality issues. New supplies cost as much as a new machine. If not the supplies then it is laser or power supply.

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.
