Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

1 Answer

We have marks on faxes sent and copies made. We have a new ink

We have a new ink cartridge installed so we think it is something to do with the scanner. I have tried cleaning all of the internal serfaces that might be a scanner window but the problem persists.

The stripes I get on a copy look like a problem on a drum that rolls around but I am not sure the correct way to clean if that is the problem. I don't want to do damage.

Either you have spots on the scanner which you should clean or the spots are on the drum unit

Yes , if the fax machine says low ink or toner , then it needs it alos check the drum corona wire, It may need cleaning, and you can clean it using a #2 lead pencil eraser, Gently in the wire, then replace wire and try receiving a fax.

No print on rec'd or sent faxes


Surely you don't have blank copies rec'd and sent as these are two different parts of the machine entirely. I'll assume you mean rec'd and copied. Sounds like you've left a packaging seal on the cartridge to me - or it's a faulty cartridge. Remove the cartridge and check that all packaging has been removed - especially plastic strip that prevents toner from dropping into the cartridge.

How can I get the fax and copy to print clearly?


Still sounds like a bad ink cartridge, try cleaning the bottom of the cartridge with a Kleenex and soapy water. Dry it off real good.

Look where the cartridge sits and clean the same way.

Ink jets are dead technology.

Try making a copy of something.
If the copy comes out the same way as your faxes, then the ink cartridge is either dirty or clogged.
You can try removing the cartridge and checking the bottom of it.
You can even wipe the bottom of the cartridge with some denatured alcohol.
If this doesnt work, then purchase a new cartridge and your problem should be solved.
Good luck.
Hope this helps.

Brother Fax 560 will not stop running the cartridge. The cartridge can be replaced, the door closed and it will not stop running until the cartridge is empty. How can I fix this problem?


Unfortunately there is no fix for this problem as the system board is corrupted. Try powering the machine of from the wall socket and then powering back on. If this doesn't work the machine will be more cost effective to replace.

One question though is it an original cartridge that is installed if not install a new original ink cartridge.
