Our fax machine seems dirty and when we send or receive faxes they have a black shaded stripe about 2 inches wide on the far right side. The toner seems to come off on our fingers also.

It's time to change NEW DRUM UNIT..and that's why your Toner will Not Last Longer because unnecessary toner (the black lines) will be on the copy every time the fax comes or you make a copy.

The fall-back required for transmission over VOIP is not available on this machine. It is a service mode function and can only be set by a technician. However, VOIP is so iffy for transmission that you may require fall-back to 4800 or even 2400. I have found that forcing fall-back more than 2 steps doesn't work.Also the Line equalisation can't be set as there is only 3 settings, 1.8;3.6; and 7.2 Km. Who knows how far to set VOIP, could be 3000KM. I had more success using a very old fax machine sending at 2400BPS that I could set the dip switches. Takes all sorts of changes to have success and then next time you try, it's changed again.

SOURCE: Black line about 1 1/2 inches wide down side of faxes or copies

if your RECEIVED faxes look good, then leroyal is dead on. you will need a new CIS which stands for contact image sensor. if you have an authorized brother service center nearby, they may be able to do it for 100 to 150.00, depending on their pricing of course. if rec'd faxes are bad also, pull drum out and make sure the blue tab on top of drum is all the way to the right side, although that usually only leaves about a 1/2" black band.

Look art the paper and the green drum if the marks are on the paper & drum then the drum is bad. If not the fuser asm is bad, the part that gits hot when melting the toner on the paper,

My intellifax 4100 has a wide solid black bar approx 1 1/2 wide down the entire right hand side of the page of faxes that I send. (faxes that are received by others). The machine works perfectly in every...


Here is a list of possibilities.

1. The scanner glass is very dirty on one side. (the area the paper paasses over.)

2. The laser scanner lens is dirty on one side

3. Look in the bottom of the machine and locate any mirrors and clean with a dry soft cloth.
You will need to remove the drum and toner to do this.

The ride side of my faxes and copies are black, any ideas?


Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines on the faxes you receive. Either your machine's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire. I recommend placing the drum unit on a drop cloth or large disposable paper
to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times.
2. Return the tab and snap it into the Home position, (Caution: If the tab is not at the Home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes).
3. Reinstall the drum unit into the machine.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Plug in the power cord first, and then plug in the telephone cord.
or ask the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is with the sending machine.
Try receiving from another fax machine.
If the problem continues, call Brother Customer
Service at: 1-800-284-4329 (in USA) or 1-877-BROTHER (in Canada).

A bar code stripe on the right side of the copy.


i'm not sure if you're talking about a solid black band or a bunch of little stripes running down page. does it happen when you run an internal report or only on copies? if its a black solid band, check and make sure the bluish colored tab on top of the drum is all the way to the left side. if its a group of fine lines, depending on whether it happens on internal reports or not, it could be the drum is going bad or you may have a bad scanner. write back with a little more info if this suggestion doesn't work.

good luck,

Take out the toner cart and turn it upside down. Swing away the drum cover. The drum should be clean, if not replace the toner cartridge.

Black mark on right side of paper


You either have some white out or some other dirt on the scanner or some sections of the scanner are bad. Open the area where your originals feed into, and look for about a 1/2 inch wide strip of glass, that is the scanner window. When that gets dirty, or fails, that causes the problem. Most likley dirty, some whiteout or ink on the scan window.

Blank vertical stripes on incoming faxes


1st. Print a report. If the blank stripes are still there, you must remove the drum and t6oner combination and clean the laser glass located on the bottom of the machine.
If the blank stripes do not appear, then the fault is on the scanner of the sending fax machine.
