Question about Brother Personal FAX-275 Roll paper Thermal

1 Answer

The faxes I recieve are illegible. Small text and hard to read.

Hi,

I'm trying to troubleshoot a fax related problem for a pest control company that I work for. A technician is having a hard time reading his faxes as they come in through his machine (Brother Personal Fax-275) since his text is either too small, spaced apart and there are occasions where it appears the text is encrypted. Please help me out as I do my own troubleshooting.

Thank you

Sometimes you can fix a problem like this by unplugging the machine from the electrical plug and letting it sit for 3 minutes unplugged. The machine will then automatically reset. After the three minutes go by plug the unit back in and ask some one to send you a trial fax. hope this solves your problem.

Graphics not seen on recieving end of fax


YOUR LOGO IS PROBABLY A LIGHTER COLOR THAT THE MACHINE CANNOT PICK-UP.
TRY CHANGING "DENSITY" SETTING BEFORE SENDING.
YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO TEST THIS IN THE "COPY" Mode before sending.

Faxes are hard to read - they're smeared with ink all over.


Sounds like a fuser issue. Check the owner's manual to see if this device has a fuser. If so, try replacing it. If not, next step may be the drum.

RECIEVED FAXES ARE TO LIGHT TO READ


take drum unit out, and locate blue tab on bottom of drum unit. take the tab and slide back and forth several times, making sure you return tab to the same side it was on. then, locate the small **** glass that covers your laser, which is located on the bottom of the machine right under where your drum would be, and clean that with a cloth and alcohol or windex. if that doesn't help, your drum may be worn out.

The faxs that I am recieving are coming true with lines


It sound like it was a bad phone line and the fax is missing some of the information. It will look like half of the text was squashed. If it is always consistent check your fax line for crackling and make sure no other devices are active on the line.

Hi. Open the document control panel and look in with a flashlight and see if the jam switch is stuck. also look for a small piece of paper that might be stuck in there. The jam is in where you put documents in to fax out. Lawrence

Problem with fax


I'm no expert but, did you try touching the online or hook button on the fax to hear the dial tone? Or connect a basic home phone into the phone jack at the wall the fax was plugged into. Do you get a dial tone. If no dial tone, call the phone company. If there is a dial tone, its the fax.
