How do the copies look? Most commonly dark print is caused by defective generic supplies or dirty laser scanner.

Incoming faxes are dark. They keep getting darker by each page faxed. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Open the fron cover & remove the drum.In the drum unit you will see a BLUE knob just move it right to left approx 20 times.
After that fix the drum back & try to copy.

If the problem is same change the drum unit as the cleaning blade of the drum has been damaged

Rate me if it was helpfull...

Print out of faxed copies are too dark AFTER the first 3

You need a new drum unit. The built-in cleaning blade has worn out.

There are thick black lines down the incoming fax pages of our Brother Intellifax 2800. How do I fix it?

You need to open the front cover of the machine and remove the cartridge( drum and toner) On the tope right there is a tab that you need to slide from left to right about 20 times, then bring back to home position

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.
