Let me confirm - Is that a standalone machine or All in One?

Usually i have seen this issue in All on One printers. Even if you scan, you would get a Blackened page. First thing you need to do is clean the scan bed glass from both the sides. If that doesn't solve the problem then this seems like you have a problem in the Tube, CCD problem or maybe in circuit board. It is related to the hardware that illuminates the paper and the hardware that absorbs the reflected light to take a image of the paper and store it.

If you have a standalone machine, let me know with the make and model of the machine.

Let me know, once done.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    I have came across such case few years ago. Is it smells Hot and Inky?

    I am sorry but looks like your Drum has failed.n in warranty, Brother will repair it for free. Else first take it to a
    local repair shop and get it cleaned up and confirm that other parts
    have not been damaged. Else it might cost you more expensive then
    buying a new fax machine.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How to send multi recepient

Given the model of the printer you indicated, I assume your use of the word "send" is in reference to the fax function. Sending a fax to multiple recipients is actually quite easy! Here's how you do it:

1. Load your document into the ADF (automatic document feeder)
2. Dial the fax number of your first recipient
3. Press the button with the check mark on it (DO NOT PRESS SEND AT THIS POINT)
4. Dial the number of your next recipient
5. Repeat steps 3 through 4 until you've entered all the numbers you intend to send the fax to
6. Once all numbers are entered, press SEND

That's all there is to it! If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

Several recepients cant read my fax, very feint. Is it a fault with my fax?

Try making a copy on your machine and see what the copy looks like.
What are you sending,??? if its a second carbon copy of something...remember what you see is what you get...if the original is poor quality the receiver will get poor quality. You can darken the image slightly...refer to your operators manual.

When I send a fax, the recepient cannot see the writing on the document, they can see the date and the address that i am sending the fax from, but they cannot see the content of the letter. When a fax is...

It'll be your outgoing fax resolution settings. Should be in your software somewhere. Move all settings, ie contrast, darkness etc to approx 50% .

I would have thought that there would also be a practice fax option, perhaps amongst the set up procedures.

Receive has replaced send on my on teleface 2820

Make sure the document is inserted 'deep' enough into the ADF. Make sure after inserting the document, the display shows 'key in the destination number & press start'.

If you are using upper tray to send the fax than kindly open the fax gently and clean the lens with some cotton and spirit and than try to send the fax you will get the best result. to open the fax unit gently refer the user manual or this open by lifting it up side and you can see the lens inside it so clean the same ok.
