The drum cleaning blade is worn out. You must replace the Drum Unit.

3 black smudge horizontal lines on prints


Your brother can send faxes without printing the pages try your computer just you should download the driver.

You can download the driver from this link: " http://download.cnet.com/Brother-MFC-8220-USB/3000-2118_4-65318.html ".

About the lines which appear on the print, you will have to buy a Drum unit for your Brother 575, because the drum cleaning blade has quit working and there is no other way to fix this only by putting a new drum unit.

note:
the drum unit is different from the toner cartridge, but if you search good you can find them together for lower price.

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

When receiving a fax I get either big black plotches all over the page or thick black vertical lines running the whole length of the page to a point where I can no longer make out any of the information...


Try making a copy of something or printing a transmission report or journal from the "reports" menu. If the same problem is apparent on these printouts, then your drum unit or toner cartridge need to be replaced

Thick black streaks on pages coming through the fax


remove the toner cartridge and you should be able to see the matching black streaks on it, if it is the problem .....don't bother trying to clean it , it is supposed to be self cleaning and you can't improve this look...replace

Cant receive faxes


First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.

Black lines on received faxes


look for a corona wire, close to the drum
  1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times.
  2. Return the tab and snap it into the home position.

    If the tab is not at the home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes.

    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.

    Poor Quality


    If you can copy ok you have effectively ruled out your machine as you have used both the scanning and printing mechanism of the machine.

    It will probably be the fax on the other end as if it sends a poor quality page that's all your machine can receive, a poor line can also cause problems if it is from multiple faxes. If so have your provider check the line (you probably hear static on the line).

    Machine keeps printing over and over!


    You need to leave the machine off for a period of time, Perhaps overnight or longer. When the battery back up runs out any stored fax will be deleted. If you have succeeded the first page should a report telling you this fact.

    If this fails you can always wind your carbon paper backwards so its not wasting on the unprinted stuff but the stuff that has already been printed on.
