Hi. i hope you can give a suggestion with our brother intellifax 2820. Whenever printing a received fax, the machine prints out a blank page in between each received page. so, for example, we receive pg1,...

press "menu/set, 1, then 3. you should see "paper size" on display. select "letter" if thats what you are using, and press "menu/set" again, then "stop/exit" to back out. next, make sure your "fax" button below display is green, then press "menu/set, 2, 1, then 5.using your arrow keys, select "on". press "menu/set" then "stop/exit". that should do it.

My brother fax machine - only receives black pages

do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.

- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).

Hope this will put your Brother on the track

Receiving a fax

It will be a problem with the other ends fax when it sends its stretches out the fax too much and it transmits accross two pages. The other fax is telling your machine to print out accross two pages in the transmission. Older faxes are the worst for it.

Machine keeps printing over and over!

You need to leave the machine off for a period of time, Perhaps overnight or longer. When the battery back up runs out any stored fax will be deleted. If you have succeeded the first page should a report telling you this fact.

If this fails you can always wind your carbon paper backwards so its not wasting on the unprinted stuff but the stuff that has already been printed on.

How do I erase the faxes I received that is still in memory that have not yet printed?

Power the machine off overnight when your not using it. The machine will lose the faxes in memory when the battery back up runs out.

Can not receive faxes or blank pages com thru!

Can you make a copy and get a good print? Does the blank pages come from different people? If you still get a blank from making a copy, then try a different toner and or drum unit. Hopefully it is still under warranty.
