Question about Brother IntelliFax-2820 Laser Fax

1 Answer

I need to replace the fuser on Intellifax 2820.

I have a failure to warm message. I understand this means the fuser needs to be replaced. I can't find anywhere to buy on, nor can I find instructions as to how to do the repair. Can anyone help?

Poor print quality

There are three main reasons why you get defective printouts - toner cartridge, drum unit or the fuser assembly. Clean them with non corrosive solution or replace when necessary. That should set the printing back to normal.

Brother fax 2920- error message "failure to warm up" turned on and off. unplugged. waited . problem unsolved

This message means the fuser is not heating to the proper temperature. The fuser will more that likely need to be replaced. But considering cost it might be more cost effective to replace the machine.

Failure to Warm Up

Failure to warm would suggest the fuser unit is failing and the machine is failing to reach the temperature that toner melts and fuses to the paper. The machine should display error 76 or 77.

Try this ONCE only!! till the after 99 bit. Hit menu, *,2,8,6,4 quickly if all the button flash and maintenance is displayed enter 99. Now if the error reoccurs you need to replace your fuser unit as it failed as opposed to just malfunctioned.

It will melt if there is a problem and you keep repeating this process. So please only once. If it takes you a few goes to get into maintenance modes its ok but the reset of 99 do only once.
