Scans Black When I'm sending something or copying it comes out all black. But when I receive from other people it comes out fine. So I'm guesssing that it scans black. I cleaned it already. Not sure what it's isssue is.

Re: Scans Black

The optical lamps aren't turning on. Check all connections inside for the optics. Most likely the LED bar has blown and the only solution would be replacement.

My brother MFC 8500 is receiving alright but everything I send out has a big black streak going down the right side of the page. Confirmation page also has big black streak.

Let me see if I got this right.

The received fax is clean but when you send one out it has a black streak on it.
Cool! So far so good.
Makes sense because for sending, the fax scans the original document and parts of the scanning area could be dirty and so on. Therefore a black streak may appear.
The same black streak would also appear when you make a copy, because the original document must also be scanned.

However for receiving faxes, the machine uses the internal memory and the print engine only, and the same applies to printing the transaction report, which comes from inside via the print engine.
The scanner has no rol in either situation.

Now I'm lost!

Black strip in documents when I send a fax

If you lift up the top, like you are clearing a jammed original, you should see a piece of glass across the machine. Look for something on the glass, usually white-out, and clean it. Test by making a copy. If copy is ok, then you fixed the problem.

Faxes I send are received as completely black

Scanner Failure. Make a copy on your machine. If it comes out black as well this means your scanner, the part that lights up and "scans" your document before sending it out has gone bad. Either the led's are not lighting up or the scanner board itself is bad. In any case the cost of repair is greater than the cost to replace these machines. You can buy a brand new plain paper fax these days for less than $100.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Black copies being received

Your image scanner is bad. Try making a copy....if it comes out black but your incoming faxes are fine then your image scanner is bad. You can also print a report from the machine and it should come out fine.
The image scanner is the part that scans your originals before faxing them out or making a copy. There is a light bar that lights up when scanning. Either that light bar(l.e.d. array) has gone bad or the scanner itself is bad. If this is the case it is probably going to cost more to fix than the machine is worth. You could buy a new machine for what it would cost to fix.

Black pages

Try to copy a document. If the copy comes out black then the the scanner is dirty. Clean the scanner glass (products on the market that clean by sending through the scanner) and try to copy again. If after cleaning the scanner, the copy is still black you have a scanner issue and the laser/scanner unit will need replacement. Best of luck and please post back with any questions or just to rate the solution.

Our canon laser fax 1060p receives faxes fine but send out a total black page (also the copy function is a total black page)

No power/failed contact image sensor. If under contract get replaced. It is poss. that a "standard white setting adj." could fix it, but doubtful with a black copy. -Carl

My brother fax machine - only receives black pages

do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.

- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).

Hope this will put your Brother on the track

Fax problem

Something is blocking part of your scanner light, or scanner light may be bad. Check if the scanner light comes on, and check inside the original feeder and machine for a scrap of paper blocking the scanner light to the imaging drum.
