Can you make a copy and get a good print? Does the blank pages come from different people? If you still get a blank from making a copy, then try a different toner and or drum unit. Hopefully it is still under warranty.

press "menu/set, 1, then 3. you should see "paper size" on display. select "letter" if thats what you are using, and press "menu/set" again, then "stop/exit" to back out. next, make sure your "fax" button below display is green, then press "menu/set, 2, 1, then 5.using your arrow keys, select "on". press "menu/set" then "stop/exit". that should do it.

Brother Intellifax-2820, will not print incoming faxes. It rings, says it's receiving data and thats it. Yes I have paper in tray. Sends and copies fine.

You need to make sure that your machine is set to "FAX" mode,not"PHONE"mode and that it is in "AUTO"receive, not "MANUAL"receive mode.

Whenever I send a fax on my brother intellifax 2820 it feeds crooked, I can not get it to go in straight. Therefore, the receiver only gets half the fax.

what you will need to do is go to a hardware store and purchase some isoprophyl alcahol. put some on a rag and clean the paper feed rollers if that fails there must be some in side that area like a peice of paper, try cutting a file folder to 8x11 in manually force feed thru a the paper feed section. good luck brother tech

Sending and receiving faxes on legal size paper.

There should not be a problem with TX on LGL paper. If you want to configure the machine to recieve LGL on a regular basis: Press "MENU" 1-3. Then use the up/down arrows to select LGL. "MENU", "EXIT". That should do it. Good luck!
