Re: Paper

Most likely the seperation pad has worn out and possibly the roller parts sould be still avalible for this model. besides replaces the worn parts in the machine there is no quick fix besides cleaning the rollers and the seperation pads in the machine with a damp soapy cloth with like dish soap and wiping dry with another cloth it might work better for alittle longer or till you get replacement parts.

We can send faxes with no issues but when we receive a fax that has multiple pages after the first couple of pages we get half pages, partial prin or blank pages. We were told it was a possible system...

Is it pulling two pages at once? Sometime a machine will start to pull a sheet normally, then the page below it will get dragged along by the friction between the two sheets. One page's print gets divided between the two. If that looks like the case, pull out the paper drawer, remove the paper, and lightly sand the little rubber or cork pad at the front, then wipe the dust off with a damp cloth and let it dry. Before putting the paper back in, grasp the stack at one end, and "fan" the other, allowing air to get between all the sheets.

Get into the machine's Paper menu to see what size is programmed for the tray. If you have Letter size in there, but it's set for some other size, all kinds of feeding problems can occur, including false jams.

The paper feed roller is controlled by a magnet lever inside the right side of the machine. It should click once to start each sheet feeding. I've seen one Fax 4100e that clicked over and over, feeding extra sheets, just like you described. It turned out to be the system board. Worse yet, Brother had switched factories in mid-production of this model, and the replacement board they sent us fed paper just fine, but wouldn't do anything right on the phone line. Couldn't dial, couldn't answer. They sent another replacement, and it was exactly the same. Brother eventually broke down and sent a replacement machine.

Multiple pages

Actually, when you get more than one paper feeding in at a time, it is almost always the separation pad being worn down. Go here to buy a new sep. pad and tell them Ken from National Cartridge Co. sent you there!

Fax feeder is pulling sheets through at the same time

Sounds like the separation pads in the paper tray are worn out. You can contact Brother and purchase the parts from them. It should be less than $10. as long as the paper is being pulled from the tray it sounds like the rollers are okay.

Broken paper guide and difficult fax input.

Lets start with the paper feed problem. You need a new paper feed roller to pull the paper in when it should. You need a new seperation pad to prevent multiple pages from being fed at the same time. you will have to look at your machine to determine which parts are needed. here is a link to a company that I do business with. You can find the trays here also.

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.
