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

Memory info retrieving from lexmark x5630 fax machine


Usually, faxes are temporarily sent to the printer's memory when one of the cartridges' ink level is not substantial for printing at the instance of receiving the fax. When this happens, try to replace the cartridge(s), *without navigating away from the message "fax sent to memory", by opening the printer cover and replacing the low-ink or empty cartridge(s). After the new cartridge is installed, close the printer cover and press the OK button. Your printer should then print the fax stored in the memory.
*Make sure not to navigate away from the "fax sent to memory" message, otherwise, data will be lost.

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.

I Need to Print


Sadly in a word, 'No'.

Here is the exact answer from Brother:

Your Brother machine is designed to stop ALL printing operations
(printing from the pc, printing received faxes and printing copies or reports) when any of the ink cartridges are empty. This is to ensure the life of the print head and maintain premium print quality. If the unit were to continue printing, print jobs and cleaning cycles would suction air from the dry cartridge and damage the printhead. Even if you print in black only or change the print settings to MONO or GRAYSCALE to avoid printing in color, the programmed cleaning cycles would still suction the dry cartridge, because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles.

The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge or cartridges.

While memory is available, black and white faxes will continue to be received into memory. If a color fax is being received, the Brother machines HANDSHAKE will request the fax be sent as black and white fax.

All faxes received into memory will automatically print once the ink cartridge is replaced.

NOTE: Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic ink or refill their Brother ink cartridges. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability since the ink formulation in genuine Brother ink cartridges prevent smearing and clogging of the print head. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorized third party ink and/or cartridges.

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.
