Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax
Try changing the toner to a new one it maybe that the toner you have installed is a faulty one. I have had this problem before and it was cured by a new toner. The most common cause for this is re manufactured toner cartridges make sure it is an original then try also it maybe the drum so try changing both.
Hope this helps you
