Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Keep receiving duplicate faxes

I keep receiving duplicate faxes. All from different people so can't imagine the person sending it is sending it more than once. Fax comes in and the same one comes in again after it. Why does it do this?

Some Brother fax machines are programmed incorrectly so they do not acknowledge receiving the last page of a document. The sender doesn't know you got it, and will resend.
It's harsh advice, but the only solution is to buy a different brand.

    Followup: typically this flaw is only a problem when the sender is using an automated service, rather than sending from another paper fax machine.

SOURCE: receiving multiple page fax on Brother Intellifax 4100e

it may be the memory, try switching to direct printing instead of going into memory, if it prints you should change the memory.

SOURCE: can't receive fax but can send

Call your cell phone from the fax machine and check the caller ID to make sure that it is the correct number for your fax machine. Next, call the fax machine from you cell phone, and make sure the fax machine rings. Problems like these are almost always a phone line issue, not the machine.

Don't forget to rate your solutions please.

SOURCE: cannot receive faxes

What is the make and model?

Call the fax machine from a regular phone to see if it answers.

I think you have some sort of phone line problem.

Fax machine modems are good or bad, nothing in-between.

Cant send or recieve fax


Might be silly question but is it setup to auto transmit and receive? And have you tried to operate it manually? + take out the inline filter fax machines operate on volume'db' to soft and it can't hear, to loud and it can distort sound.

Call your fax machine from a telephone...have someone watch your fax and see if it answers...also listen on the telephone and see if you get the "tones" that a fax gives.....if your fax just keeps ringing then it just may have been set to the "tel" (telephone) mode...set it back to the Fax mode.

Fax sends certain pages in duplicate


If it only happens with that one vendor, the problem is almost certainly either on their end or somewhere in the interaction between the two fax machines.

The most likely answer is that their fax machine has a problem receiving some pages (either because the line is noisy or for another reason) so it has to reprint them. You could tell your vendor to try turning off error correction on their fax machine and see if that makes a difference.

Hope that helps.

It's gone forever, once your machine received a EOT (end of transmission signal), your fax machine thinks it was received OK and clears it from memory.

2 fax machines on 1 line


Once you place your both fax machine on same line you will keep getting this issue. Fax machine is waiting for a fax ring signal that your other machine is sending. Shut down one machine when faxing or connect your alt fax machine to a different number this way you can send faxes when need to.

Error codes 283 and 232 in received Faxes


basically error 232 indicates that a communication failure has occurred between the two machines
Following these steps may help resolving your issue

1. Make sure that the phone cord is plugged directly from the wall jack into the back port of the fax machine that is marked "Line" or "To Wall Jack", or that has a wall-jack symbol.
2. Verify that the line interface unit (LIU) (the box that the phone cord plugs into) is seated fully into the back of the fax.
3. Remove any other device from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines, and retry the fax communication.
4. Try sending and receiving faxes on a different fax line.
5.Try using a different telephone cord.
6. Have the phone company test your line for static or noise problems.
7. Disable Error Correction Mode (ECM) if the same error occurs repeatedly.

Hope this helps.

3150 fax machine outputs a blank page when my fax sends to it


(05) Would you, please, SEND a fax from the machine that blank faxes are being received from to a different recipient on a different fax machine all together, please?

This will enable us to pin down which machine is really experiencing the issue.

Thank you
