Make a copy and shut the power off or open a door when the paper is 1/2 way into the machine. You are just basically going to have to try to time it. When you hear paper being fed into your machine (the blank paper from the tray) count about 3-5 seconds and then open a door on the machine or shut the power off. IF you have timed it correctly, the paper should be 1/4 - 1/2 way through the machine. Remove the jammed paper **** But be careful..... The toner is NOT FUSED at this point so it will rub off if you brush it up against your clothes or hands. If the image is doubled at this point.. then its the drum unit. If the image is good at this point, then it is probably your fuser.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

The fax is printing dark black all over the page


It seems that there no charge voltage when copies are made.First thing you can try is to replace the drum unit or the toner cartridge.If this doesn't help,there could be bad charge circuit board that needs to be replaced.

Horizontal lines and tones specks around text


Only known causes are a dirty corona wire or a dirty/bad drum. If you know the drum is good, a thorough cleaning of the drum and cleaning the corona wire should clear up your printing.

When I send a fax from our Brother Intellifax 2800, the person receiving the fax gets the fax but half of the page is blacked out, what is the problem?


sounds like your cis (contact image sensor) which lights up and reads your original, is bad. that component is located under the keypad/control panel. if you make a copy, it should also be partially balck if that is the problem.

BROTHER FAX MACHINE 2800


Your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode function reduces power consumption while the machine is idle. You can adjust how long your Brother machine is idle (between 00 and 99 minutes) before Sleep Mode is initiated. Please note that the default setting is 00 minutes, and the timer automatically resets itself after the Brother machine receives a fax,receives data from your PC, or makes a copy. To adjust your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode setting, please follow these steps:

1. Press MENU/SET, 1 (General Setup), 7 (Sleep Mode).

2. Use the dial pad to enter the amount of time the fax machine is idle before Sleep Mode is initiated (00 to 99 minutes).

3. Press the MENU/SET key to confirm your choice.

4. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.

NOTE: If you frequently print, copy, or fax, set the idle time long
enough to insure that you will not always have to wait for the Brother machine to warm up.

Copied pages are all black


Is is a lower end product for light duty use. You can try a new genuine OEM drum and or toner, but buying them both would cost as much as a new 2800. Can you print a internal report OK?If so, then your scanner is defective. A common problem with 2800,s
