    I have a similar problem with receiving faxes and printing copies. After a few acceptable copies the prints get progressively darker. if it is a drum or fuse problem where can I purchase these items at a reasonable price?

    Your experience and advice will be appreciated. Thank you,

    You can prove if drum or fuser by stopping print at about half way and checking if fault is present when stopping paper before fuser but after drum.

Common problem with this fax and others with the DR200/250 drum. Change the drum, it's shot. They have a limited shelf life. Brother's estimate of yield only works in the most favorable conditions under moderate use. Problem is, a new drum and toner cart will cost nearly as much as you paid for the machine.

How to retreive a Fax that is in memory using the Brother intellifax 2800?


Printing a Fax in Memory
If you have Fax Storage ON for remote retrieval, you can still print a fax from the
memory when you are at your FAX/MFC. (See Setting Fax Storage, page 9-2.)
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 4.
2 Press Fax Start.
3 After printing is finished, press Stop/Exit.


If you would like for me to send you the manual, please send an email to LBROWN18062@HOTMAIL.COM Please put "Brother2800 manual" as the subject and I will end it to you right away. Lawrence

How do you retreive faxes in the memory of a brother intell 2800


Hello,

The intliFax 2800 has 2 types of memory.

If you have enabled the Fax Storage option (menu 2 5 2) then you can either turn this option off and you will be prompted to print or you can press Menu 2 5 4.

If there are faxes in the emergency memory, they should print once you clear the error message, if not, then press Menu 2 6 which will attempt to print out any jobs in memory as well.

Thanks,

Pat

2800 will not recieve faxes


Some models will actually stop working whenever a drum message is displayed.
Remember, you do not need a drum to fax out (only to print confirmations) so i would go ahead and change the drum.
Ons ome models you can adjust to how low you want to set it or remove it all together.
It will store it in memory for a while (providing you do not turn off the machine, and print as soon as you replace the toner)

HELP WITH THE MACHINE


Hello, have you tried to replace the toner cartridge, if the page is plain with no markings you could also have a defective "Imaging Drum"

Copied pages are all black


Is is a lower end product for light duty use. You can try a new genuine OEM drum and or toner, but buying them both would cost as much as a new 2800. Can you print a internal report OK?If so, then your scanner is defective. A common problem with 2800,s
