Black lines on out-going faxes/Brother MFC 1950

I've recently went through all the usual problems with this fax machine, the blue levers not having enough pressure applied, the manual pick-up when a fax comes in......but now we've got a black line on each side of the out-going faxes.

Is this a problem that can be fixed without purchasing new parts?

Have you cleaned the glass?  That's usually what causes that problem.  Lift up the lid so you can see the glass slit that your original slides against as it scans.  Make sure it's clean.

If the problem continues, you might need a new scan lamp.

Have the brother mfc-5890cn having fax issues


Can you hear the receiving fax pick up the line? If so, you may need to slow the speed of your fax modem to allow for poor line conditions. You can find the instructions on page 12 of the Users Guide. If you don't have one, you can download a PDF file of the guide on the Brother web site.

Using MagicJack for faxing; however, Brother MFC 290C is stating poor line condition - why? Also say's low ink Magenta - would that create this problem?


I had the same problem trying to send out faxes out using my Brother MFC 7340. I use a magic jack phone line. Page 106 of the user manual says if sending via VOIP phone line, you should press menu, then 2, 0, 1 to select "Basic (for VOIP) mode. Then press ok. Then press stop/exit. This cuts the modem speed down to 9600 bps and turns ECM off. Then retry to send the fax. I did that and can now send and receive faxes.

Brother MFC-7420 doesn't receive faxes - send out is OK


If you have the book, go through the setup procedure as if you were installing it for the first time. If you don't have it, go to the Brother website and download it.

Receiving faxes


First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.
