Again a two fold possibilty(no pun intended)!!
There is a lever on these models located on the left side of where your transmitted documents feed in. It has two icons. One icon is for a single document and the other is for multiple documents. The Normal setting is the multiple document setting.
The single document setting is an indication for ( believe it or not) sending hard card or cardboard. If you have set this unit to this setting it will swallow the entire pile at once.
Now then possiblity #2.. and a very common occurrance!
This document feeder has a very small piece of rubber that is called
"The separation pad". If you were to pull open the feeder area and notice the 2 inch wide black roller. Exactly opposite from the black roller on the opened cover you will see the separation pad.
Here's what happens. The sep pad rubber gets old and hard. As it dries out it becomes shiney and looses it's ability to Hold Back the next page. Ergo........ Double feeding occurs.
Folks this part is cheap cheap cheap. Don't live with this problem. Find a parts resource for your unit and get a new sep pad.
I have seen these machines at our local land fill and for $1.10 I repaired them good as new.
Now practice safe Fax !!!

HP 1040 is sending streaked faxes

Streaking on outbound faxes is due to a dirty optics assembly. In order to correct the issue, you must open the fax (just lift up the front cover) and clean the area that scans the paper as they become dirty with paper dust and dirt.

I can make copies but can't fax out or in. Help

This unit probably has a LINE and TEL jack on the side. Did you plug a regular phone into the telephone jack to see if you get dial tone? When you put a document in the carrier and press SEND, do you get any messages on the display like NO DIAL TONE?

Just a couple of things to try. Get outbound service first and you will be able to figure out how to make it answer by the bottons on the face of the machine.

Dialing out to fax papers. Reaches the number but instead of taking the fax it prints out a report saying: transmission verification report -- NG: Poor line condition. I have never used this fax machine...

Perhaps you indeed have lots of interferences on your telephone line, or the recipient does.
It is also possible that the unit has been set for a different telephone line standard (for some other country) - check the manual for relevant settings. If you don't have a manual, go to Brother website and download one.

Black streaks on paper when printing message

That green bar is the drum unit. Black streaks are indication of bad drum. Replace drum unit. Don't wait too long or it will ruin the fusing section as well from excess toner build-up. Big bucks!
