Try to make a copy. If they come out bad, you have a bad scanner assy.

Why do my incoming fax sheets have black ink all over them can not read fax

well i think that the paper u use in ur fax machine creates a colour bleed over it. so i reccomend u that use low porous papers. but do not use blotting papers or porous papers as while printing the fax page, porous papers soak high ink and it gets scatterd over.
another sollution- please check the cartridges because if the cartridges leak, then it may lead to spread blank ink over paper......
check these simple steps and then if the issue persists inform it again....

My brother fax machine - only receives black pages

do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.

- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).

Hope this will put your Brother on the track

Cant receive faxes

First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.

Auto print off

Most often, Auto Print Off is activated by pressing the On/Off button, and documents are then stored in memory. Disable this function by pressing the On/Off button again.

The fax will also turn off Auto Print when the machine runs out of ink or paper, in which case, you should replace the ink cartridge or supply more paper. This situation usually results in display of the message Rec'd in Memory as well, and the unit will receive up to 30 transmissions or 60 pages maximum.

My brother fax machine is indicating that two color cartridges are almost empty, however i never print anything and color, and basically everything is black. so how can they be almost empty?

Three reasons -

If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.

Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.

When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.

If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.

Ink cartridges, recieving fax

It sound like your machine is receiving but as soon as it tries to prints the fax it has this problem.

Rewind the ink ribbon so it is nice and tight in the housing. Clean the black roller above it with some cleaning alcohol or equivalent (nothing too harsh).

See how that goes if you are still having problems replace the whole cartridge (not the refills) PC-401.
