Receive a black copy

Whenever I fax a paper, I get a black copy out of the fax.
I tried to reset the contrast, but it did't work or maybe I did it wrong.
Can somebody help me?

    The copies that I receive from others are fine.

    Only when I copy a paper or when I fax something, the OK-paper is black.

Problem could be with static discharging into CIS as paper runs through adf, was a common fault and there is a set of discharge brushes you can get to fix it or... unplug it, open adf and go over it all gently wit a cotton rag, leave it for about 5 mins then turn it on again

My brother fax machine - only receives black pages


do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.

- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).

Hope this will put your Brother on the track

Copying and fax sending problem


  1. Just check & clean the dust in the original feeding area.
  2. if not solved, clean the Document feed sensor or replace the same. But for this you need to open the body of the fax machine.

Panasonic Fax Phone Can't send or Receive fax


there maybe a small paper jam in the machine that you are missing. if you are handy, unplug the fax machine and look around where the paper is fed into. if you see paper trapped anywhere, try pulling it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. the machine will not work right till the jam is cleared.
hope this helps.

Problems receiving faxes in memory


Just had the same trouble. I loaded paper. Tried more paper, tried less paper. No luck. Finally in deparation and trying "everything" I could think of, I pressed "stop/reset" before pressing "start/copy" and now it's working. Very frustrating!
