Make a copy and see what that looks like. You are using the same components when faxing.

The fax is received by the other party but we receive an error code J72. There is no jam


Dear
If you are sending the fax using ADF, there may be the document jam, Open the ADF cover check the path for any foreign objects.
Also you can send from platen glass without document jam.

Also this may happen to the other end fax machine, better you do a test copy from ADF and Platen glass. and confirm your fax machine is ok.
Thanks.

Whenever i send a fax, the machine confirms by viewing 'TRANSMITTING OK' but the addressee receives a blank document


Check the baud rate of your transmissions. Slow them down to the slowest setting and send a test fax to a helpful person. Slowly increase the baud rate (communication data speed) and send the fax test. When the fax doesn't show up on the receive site, then step one baud rate speed back, and save the setting.

It could also be your fax that is faulty, or even the receive sites fax, also being faulty.

To test your copy-head, insert a document into your loading section of the fax and press copy. If the copy prints out fine, then you know the head is reading correctly.

It is also possible that the receiver fax (the other end) has a printhead failure.

When trying to send a fax a brother 1360 and after dialing the number rings but the document will not scan and displays 'telephone'.


The reason why your mahcine shows telephone because it can't recognize the document that you loaded in.
Try to remove the document from the feeder and make sure that your mach shows date & time. Load the document again in the feeder and the display should show enter fax # & start, that's the time you need to dial the fax # and hit the start key,
Hope this helps,

Brother Intellifax. When I make copies and send faxes there is a 2 inch black line on the side of the paper, but not when i receive faxes. Do I need a new drum? They run approximately 189.00 so any help...


It is NOT the drum. It is your document scanner. 2 inches wide is big so most likely it is not the typical scrap of paper or whiteout that gets stuck to the scanner glass. Lift up the ops panel where the documents are fed in to be copied. Look for a strip of glass that runs from one side to the other. Make sure there is nothing on the glass. At 2 inched wide it is more likely that you have some of the LED's that light up going bad. Under the glass is a row of LED's that light up to scan the document. If a block of these are not lighting up then this then causes the black band to show up. If this is the case then you will need to have the scanner repaired or buy a new machine which might be cheaper. No question tho, it is in the scanner as this is the only area that will cause clean incoming faxes but bad copies and outgoing faxes.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Its giving me a pls open cover offline screen and it wont send any faxes i might be stupid this maybe is normal or simple but when the machine is warming it gives out a wicked screeching noise


Hi Fax machines are one of the oldest ways to send document information over a telephone line. Before e-mail became the most popular, and more efficient way to send documents, the fax machine was king. With time, fax machines have become sophisticated machines capable of many functions. No longer found only as a stand-alone machine, fax machines are included in copiers and printers. Faxing can even be done through computer software to a receiving fax machine or printer. So with such a complex machine there are several things that could go wrong. This article teaches you some basic troubleshooting steps.
    Fax Quality
  1. If the faxes you are receiving are too dark or light, or ruined by streaks and splotches, play around with the darkness and density settings on your machine. Send a few test faxes until the quality looks good on your end. If the faxes continue to come out poorly, the problem probably lies on the sender's end. If you are the sender, and your documents are coming out badly on the other end, try cleaning the sensors of your machine with a damp cloth.

In what direction to you put in the paper when sending a fax? Up or Down?Front or Back? Thanks


Up or down doesn't matter much, as the recipient can always turn the printout around :) But generally putting the documents upside down will make the fax scan the top of the page first.
As far as front/back is concerned, it depends on the construction - if you look at the document feeder you will see a symbol of a sheet with a corner bent, showing the back side. If there are stripes (symbolizing text) on that corner, you must put the document(s) face down; if the stripes are on the rest of "sheet" - put them face up.
In your case most probably it will be face down. You can always check that, and the quality of document scanning (whether the document is not too light for example) by using the "Copy" function of your fax.

Status Code 19


Look in you menus. Your log print out is probably set to on and set to print out way to frequently. You can turn that feature off.
You can go to Xerox.com, click on Support and drivers. In the search box type in 116 then go to support and then type in Log, There should be an answer there as to how to shut off log printing. You cold also type in code 19 when you get to the support page.

Nothing prints on the paper for incoming faxes or copying a document.


i suspect you are correct in cleaning the unit.inkjets if not used often enough the ink will clog the print head. usually the easiest solution is to keep cleaning unit it works again. other wise to clean the print head manually requires the unit to be completely dissambled. it takes a long time to fix it this way. or if replacement costs are acceptable you can replace it. i would just give it a dozen or so more cleanings.
