Fax copies come in too light to read

I don't want to be 1 of them to say is it a generic ribbon. Ribbon transfer fax's are touch ie on melting the print on the ribbon on to the paper. tried selling the ginaric ribbons did not work well.

If it is a brother ribbon then the blue latch levers my be creaked if the print is only on 1 1/2 of the paper.

hope this helps

Make sure ribbon is installed correctly. Also check inside the tray area to see if the rubber roller and or the rubber separator pad is dislodged. Obviously not worth repairing unless under warranty.
