I cannot receive a fax. My mx410 says "Awaiting doc processing"

It sounds to me like you are having connectivity issues. Do you receive faxes over the phone line, wireless server or internet? Are there any other errors?

Why are there black lines down the centre of my faxes

This can be due to some dust on the scanning apparatus. Simply try blowing it out. If it will not help, it is probably defective, however it rarely fails completely. On scanners it sometimes does yellow stripes. It usually comes with older devices.

I have received a fax and it has to vertical lines down the front of it.

The problem is with the SENDER's fax machine ... not yours...
Your fax machine is working properly...

Note that all faxes from that source will have the stripes, all other faxes that you receive from other sources will not have the lines...

You might send the fax with the lines back to the sender to advise them...

Hope this helps!

Every Fax we send has stripes going down it making it hard for the receiver to read our faxes. It doesn't happen when we receive fax, print or make copies.

You say it makes copies without the stripes. Do you use the automatic document feeder (ADF) when you make copies, or open the top and lay the paper on the platen? If you get stripes when using the ADF, the ADF scanner area needs to be cleaned. It's the smaller glass area to the left of the main platen glass. Use a damp cloth and remove any dirt or debris.

FAX received full of black stripes

If you are using upper tray to send the fax than kindly open the fax gently and clean the lens with some cotton and spirit and than try to send the fax you will get the best result. to open the fax unit gently refer the user manual or this open by lifting it up side and you can see the lens inside it so clean the same ok.

Stripe on receiving fax Brother MFC 7820N

I had the same problem, and I just fixed it.  It was a tiny little black dot which was stuck to the glass where the document feeder passes the paper to.  First you need to figure out where the line is on paper with respect to the paper, and just carefully run your finger on the glass to see if there is something on the glass.  I removed it, cleaned the glass, and anything which I run through the document feeder is now fine.  Hope this helps.
