Re: Fax

Its quite possible the area that scans the paper(s) you are sending is dirty.
If the machine is one of those phone/fax/scanner/copier jobs, simply open the top panel, and with a damp cloth, wipe the runners that feed the paper through from left to right or right to left (just make sure any dirt you're wiping goes off to one side)
its also possible that a paper (that white-out was used on) that has been recently faxed, left some white out on the feeders

Replace the print cartridge
When you notice that the print becomes light or ink low or when install new ink
cartridge appears in the display, replace the print cartridge. The part number for
replacement cartridges is HP 701.
1. Take out a cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the tape covering the
Hold the cartridge by the colored top or black areas only. Do not touch the copper
2. Press the Access Cartridge button on the control panel.
The cartridge carrier moves to the install position.

Replace the print cartridge
3. Open the control panel and cartridge compartment cover (it will click and remain
4. Push the cartridge down and remove it.
5. To load the cartridge insert the cartridge as shown below. When the cartridge is
pushed to the back of the cartridge carrier, push the top of the cartridge until it clicks
into place.
If the cartridge moves loosely in the carrier, it has not clicked into place. Repeat this

• When you put in a new cartridge, you must choose 1:New

correct amount of ink you have left.
TIP: If you mix up several used cartridges, it is not possible to check the correct amount
of remaining ink. Once you have put in a new cartridge, use it until it is completely

When i copy or fax get a black ink line down the page

Do you get a black line when printing also ? If not the **** glass the "reads your document has something on it (like whiteout). Lift the cover where you feed documents in and take a look for a small clear plastic window that runs from left to right and clean it with alcohol. Good luck !

We have an old 9920 PB fax machine and it is no longer under warranty and when our fax receipts come out they have ink on both sides of the paper. I mean extra black toner. Not coming out clear. how much...

Your toner cartridge is leaking because all of then now are refills.

If you decide to put $200 into it for a new cartridge, remove the swinging shield that covers the drum before installing it.

it will come loose and cause paper jams.

SF-560R. When receiving and sending Faxes

needs a new toner cartridge probably but the fuser rollers may be damaged as well usually if the lines are indented into the paper that means its the fuser roller if they just appear strait down the page then its the toner cartridge

Black stripe down one side of every fax

On my Brother fax machine, there is a blue plastic cleaning thingy on the toner cartridge used to clean the metalic wire. If you leave it on the wrong side after cleaning, you get a thin black strip down the edge of every page. Slide it over to the other side and problem goes away.

It sounds like the toner is getting low. Take out the toner cartridge and rock it back and forth a few times to redistribute the toner evenly in the cartridge. If this makes the printouts look better, you should order another cartridge, as this one is getting low. I'm not sure about the L-100, but the toner cartridge for the L-120 fax is good for about 2,000 copies.

Fax mach 1800c brother

Although you may not use the other colours the cleaning assembly cleans all the cartridges hence the other ink gets used. To trick the machine into thinking there is ink in the cartridge, place some black tape over the top of each cartridge facing front of the machine. This fools the sensor into seeing no reflected light and reads that there is ink in the cartridges you do not use. Pleas enote that if you do this on a long term basis it is liley the head will dry out and may damage the head - use this advise to get urgent prints out.
