Question about Brother IntelliFAX 2800 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Problem with printing...

I have a Brother Intellifax 2800 and if we receive more than 5 fax pages I guess the machine starts to warm up it will start printing vertical lines on the fax and continues to get worse with every page after that? by the tenth page the lines are so dark you cant see half of the page? any solution to this would be great!!!

Re: Problem with printing...

First and most important with Brother machines is , you need to use genuine brother supplies. Almost every time I service a brother and I find generic toner and drums cause the print quality issues. New supplies cost as much as a new machine. If not the supplies then it is laser or power supply.

Brother IntelliFax 4100 sending solid black pages

It sounds like the CIS (scanner) has failed in both machines. Its no generally not a common problem. I would change one every six months if I was lucky.

It may point to something in your environment. I have have seen rust build up on the contacts of the scanner cause this problem. So if you have high moisture or are close to the ocean this maybe a problem.

Incoming fax quality

Are you using genuine Brother supplies? Generic supplies are the main reason for print quality issues. Have you ever changed thr drum unit ? Expensive! You can buy a new machine and get a new drum and toner for a little bit more.
