Intermittent printing problems

I have a really strange thing happening.....My fax machine will be working fine and then all of a sudden a really faint page will come out and is usually followed by several blank pages. Is it possible the fuser unit is going bad??

It sounds like the drum unit has a really dirty charge wire. Toner gets on it and hardens and will start arcing, causing blank copies. Try replacing the drum unit

SOURCE: Brother 2920 Fax Machine keeps jamming every few pages

Please try this and let me know how it goes

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Ricoh 1140L doesn't print all pages


Does this happen from all senders or a specific sender?
If it's a single location then it is a conflict -some combinations of machines simply don't get along well together
If it happens from all locations, you may try a line filter. Interference on the telephone line will cause problems.

Brother Intellifax 2800 Faint Print


did you remember to remove the pull tab to allow the new toner to be utilized? it's either that or you just have a defective toner cartridge which if you replace will take care of the issue. If you have used canned air to blow out your machine it is possible that the toner dust has been blown into the laser housing and fogging up the mirrors that it uses but that's kinda a last resort check...

Deteriorating Print Quality


This is Maltesecross. Turns out that the faintness of my printed pages was in fact due to a low ink cartridge, even though some pages printed out fine and others half-good. Eventually, all pages turned faint, and upon re-installing the driver, I got a low-ink warning (the first one ever). Putting in a new ink cartridge solved the problem for me.

Faint print or colour missing V V URGENT


I'm not an expert on these but I'd guess either the high voltage unit or LED laser PSU are suffering from an intermittent problem. If you're lucky it's just a loose connector - but I'll bet you've already tried re-seating every connector you can find :)
