Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Black bar code type of streak on the side of the NEW machine!!!

I had the Brother intellifax 4100 when this problem occurred. I thougth it was the drum. So the price for a drum was almost as much as the new 4100e I now have. IT IS DOING THE SAME THING! Am I going nuts? I can not figure out what the problem is! I spent the money for nothing!

    Please check the fuser assembly (check manual) if there are stucked small bits of paper on the sides of it. Or any rough particles that are entrapped on it.

My intellifax 4100 has a wide solid black bar approx 1 1/2 wide down the entire right hand side of the page of faxes that I send. (faxes that are received by others). The machine works perfectly in every...


Here is a list of possibilities.

1. The scanner glass is very dirty on one side. (the area the paper paasses over.)

2. The laser scanner lens is dirty on one side

3. Look in the bottom of the machine and locate any mirrors and clean with a dry soft cloth.
You will need to remove the drum and toner to do this.

Right hand side of page has 1-1/2 inch horizontal streaks down the side


The scanning bar has 28 leds on it and on my 4100 the 6 leds on the right side were flashing on and off,it could be abad connection on that part of the scanning bar caused by a jamed paper.
to tell if your machine is a printing problem or a scanning problem print out the help menu {press the reports key then the 1 key} if it prints clear then every thing with the print cartrige is ok and the problem is in the scanning part of the machine.

Streaks of black ink down the pages of faxes


Hello.

It might be as simple as changing the ink. If still a problem, the FAX may need cleaning.

Hope this helps.

Faxing is clean, streaks occur when copying


Open the document feeder cover. The scanner glass is dirty or you have a bad scanner block.

Dirty copies.


Does this streaking problem occur when printing (not copying)? If it does then you are probably looking at a consumable issue. Alot of times black streaking is caused by a defective or spent drum. Is your drum new? There is also a blue piece on the drum unit used to clean the corona wire that cleans the drum. Have you tried moving it back and forth several times?

If the problem only happens when copying and the streaks are as bad as you make them out to be then you problem have a bad CIS unit (scans your originals for faxing or copying)

Intellifax 4100 grinding noice


Probably caused by the toner cart. Only use genuine new Brother brand supplies. Remans fail quite often with Brother machines.
Possibly bad gears on fuser drive. But with the poor print quality, I suspect it is the toner.
