    Same thing here but i have found the problem with mine...

    the document pickup roller, not the big one the smaller black one on top of the white ones, slides to the left causing the gears to slip.

    I'm still trying to locate a more reasonable solution than paying $15 for a new roller.

Look in or around scanner area to see if there is any foriegn material trapped in paper handling area.

This is area where the original document feeds through

I have a brother 4750e fax that is sending occassional barcode looking black areas on the right side of page. receives OK Has new drum and clean scanner glass

My first guess is a bad drum unit. Inside the assembly is a soft, plastic blade that scrapes off the toner that didn't make it onto the paper, so the next page will be clean. If dirt is stuck under the cleaning blade, it may skip, making marks like that on the drum, which get transferred to the page.
Do you still have your old DR-400 drum, or can you borrow one from another machine? Swapping drums is the ideal test, if you can avoid buying a new one. If your new drum is bad, the seller should exchange it.

If you have a hand set try to use it as a phone. If no dialing tones are present check the phone line connection. If the fax is well connected there is a good chance that you need a part for the machine.

Brother intelli fax 2800

It could be that your sending fax is sending paper not facing the scanner. In that case tell them to turn the paper over to send. Other than that, it could be that the telephone lines are so dirty that the fax protocl fails at the check frame signal. You will have to adjust the equalisation and line attenuation. Don't count on the telephone company to help you, they always want you to do everything 1st before they will admit to any fault on their part.

Outgoing fax makes loud clicking noise

2 different problems here. 1st is with document feed and 2 is with paper feed.

1st prob seems to be with the paper feed roller not meshing at the gear. Probably a broken piece on the lower document tray assembly. No real fix for this unless you can strip it out and haywire it.

2nd prob is probably a poorly meshing drum unit. Examine the gear teeth on both the drum and the machine. As you have replaced the drum already (presumably with a brand new one) You might possibly find a missing or badly worn tooth on the messhing gear in the machine.
