Question about Brother FAX-575 Plain Paper Thermal
My machine is an Intellifan-620. Thermal roll paper. The phone part works, but the LCD is blank no printing, etc. Does this mean the machine has gone to the graveyard? I have had the machine a looooooong time. Thanks. maglbfw
Uh-huh, you have had it for a while; I repaired these in my former shop that I closed in 1999.
The failure is almost certainly due to the expiration of a cheap component called a capacitor located in the power supply.
The problem was these were TOO cheap and are subjected to a kind of service they do not like.
They kind of fade away unnoticed but finally lose so much of their original capacitance they can no longer do their job.
If you were 'down the road' from me, I would do a freebie on that one, I know it well.
With the price of a new machine (albeit an ink jet that costs MUCH more to feed) so low now, I suggest adding it to the pile of 'things not worth repairing any more.'
