Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Half inch black line down middle of sent & copies -is NOT SCANNER

Problem on outgoing faxes or copies, but not on "Help" pages printed from the device, or on incoming faxes. Followed advice from other user: "That made us suspect first the scanning glass had dirt or white-out on it - but even after we cleaned the bits of dirt from it, we still had black lines. So next we suspected the scanner lamp. To test it, we started a copy and in the middle of its pulling a page through the ADF, we popped open the ADF a bit to see there was a section of the scanner lamp burned out when it lit up." Their's had a matching burned out section on the scanner. OUR SCANNER WAS PERFECT GREEN LIGHT ALL THE WAY ACROSS. I have tried the "Unplug the power cord. Put your finger on the menu key first and then plug the unit back up until the machine says Maintenance. The unit will beep and all of the lights will flash. Let the menu key go and press 82 and the unit will say machine error. There will be a number, if it says 00 there is no error. Press stop and then press 55, the machine will " say scanner area set" this will reset your scanner.If the machine says scanner error, there is a problem with your scanner and it will need to be serviced. To exit out of maintenance press stop and then 99, Try making copies again and verify any improvement." There was no improvement!
Please Help!!!!

The scanner will give you problems only when you send not receiving or incomings, it sounds like your corona wire and the grid needs to be clean this is part of the drum unit with a cute tip (you will need more than one) pull out the image unit and toner it's two pieces in one. you can clean the corona wire (corona wire is the thin wire that charge the drum unit with a positive charge located at the center of the drum unit and is thinner than a human hair and under that you will see the grid make sure all that section is cleaned. if you have compress air will help)
in my opinion you whent to far trying to check some other things that are not necesary.
hope this will help
any other questions please let me know.

Outgoing fax was received as blank


Hello,

Make sure that you sent the fax face down.
If all your faxes are sent blank, there may be a problem with the scanner. Try making a photo copy placing the page face down, if your copy comes out blank then the scanner is finished.

If your photocopy does not come out blank then the problem is on the other end and not your machine.

Thanks,

Pat

Faxes coming in print fine but outgoing faxes people are saying are coming out blank on their end


If outgoing faxes are turning up blank on the recipients end, you may be putting the paper to be faxed in backwards. Outgoing faxes should be sent face-down. If you are sending properly, either your scanner is failing (test it by copying a document) or the recipient is having fax issues on their end.

3-INCH WIDE VERTICAL LINES RUND DOWN LEFT SIDE OF FAX MACHINE


Do your incoming faxes have the same marks?
If not you might find that the scanning part of your machine has a dirty mark on the glass or that the unit has become faulty.
Try and take a copy from the machine and print from a report or any print from memory.
If you have the black lines on both then i'd suggest getting a new drum unit, if u have it only on the copy I would have a look at your scanner glass and see if there is a dirty mark on it. if not maybe call out an engineer as the scanner unit maybe faulty.
Need anymore help msg me.
