Re: brother 4750e

No you're ok. This machine uses the DR 400 drum. What has probably happened is 1 of 2 things. Either the charge corona wire is dirty or at worst is broken and missing. You can't see the wire itself as it's too fine. What you can see is the cleaning felt which is attached to a blue plastic slider located on the underside of the drum unit. Remove the drum and toner from the machine, locate the corona wire cleaner and slide it across the machine 2 or 3 times, remembering to re-locate in it's starting position afterward. Now if this doesn't work. Then I'm afraid you will have to replace the drum.

My brother fax machine is indicating that two color cartridges are almost empty, however i never print anything and color, and basically everything is black. so how can they be almost empty?

Three reasons -

If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.

Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.

When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.

If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.

You need to open the front cover, then press the "Clear" button, and then press "1". This will reset the drum counter.

IntelliFAX 4750E - Printer Busy

The printers memory may be full depending on the type of documents they are printing. The first and most simple step is to unplug the power cord from the back of the unit for 30 seconds, put your finger on the stop key while plugging the unit back up and continue holding the stop key until the time and date are back on the display of the Brother unit.

If that does not work unplug the USB cable from the PC. Unplug the power cord from the unit again. Put your finger on the menu key first and then plug the unit back up. You want to hold the menu key unit the until the LCD says maintanence and all the lights are flashing. Let the menu key go and press the number 82 and will give you an error code. If the error code is 00 then there are no errors. If there is an error code record it and contact brother or check a service manual if you have one. Most laser products all have the same error codes with Brother.

To reset the unit press stop and then 91, this will reset the unit and all faxes or print jobs will be lost. This should clear the issue.
