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

First guess is you have a bit of dirt (often white-out from people scanning corrected paper that's not quite dry) stuck on the fax scan window. This should be described pretty well in your user manual (which you can download online from brother.com).

Its also possible that there is dirt (typically loose toner) on the laser scan window (there's a laser that shines through it to get the image pattern on the drum). That window is often along the bottom of the unit under the drum/cartridge (take the cartridge out and look). The Brother manual I've seen seems to ignore this possibility.

Print streaks DO NOT mean cartridge drum replacement in many cases !! On brother Intellifax or MFC or other laser copier/printer/fax, keep in mind that either the fax/copy scan window OR the laser scan window can get dirty. If the fax scan window is dirty, you see streaks on outgoing faxes and copies (but NOT incoming faxes). If the laser scan window is dirty, you see streaks on all prints (copies, faxes, print-from-computer).

Note also that when transporting/moving some laser copier with the toner cartridge inside, the toner can get out and make a big mess inside (including getting the laser scan window dirty). An air compressor can be usefull to blow it out. And sometimes using alcohol to clean is a BAD idea (maybe incompatible with plastic and rubber parts). A damp rag is probably fine.

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.
