Im not familiar with the particular model. A lot of the small brother laser fax machines will have the laser unit under the drum unit. if you take out the drum unit.. you should see a clear glass that goes across the width of the machine. it is about 1/2" X 9". There is probably toner and dust on the glass.
this will block the laser from reaching the drum. Clean the glass pretty good and this should at least help.

Need to know how to print FAX report showing when items were faxed to what number on Brother IntelliFAX 2820


Press the report button and chose Fax journal with the down arrows and press menu/set. This will print the last 50 incomming and outgoing faxes.

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.

Display says "printing online" but it is not connected to a PC


unplug machine, press and hold down the "stop/exit" key while pluggung back in. continue to hold the button down for 5 secs, then release. if machine returns to the regular date/time display, you should be alright. if not, then you'll have to call brother or an authorized service center. this is usually caused by a fax stuck in memory, which this procedure should clear.

good luck,

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