Make a copy with the machine. If it comes out black as well your scanner has gone bad. In other words when you insert an original to be "scanned" so it can be faxed or copied, it is being read as all black. Usually this occurs because the row of led's that light up the original go bad. Now I have seen in some cases, if you unplug the machine for a bit then power back up the problem goes away so try that. Test by making a copy. If this does not work then your are looking at a scanner assembly replacement or just get a new machine.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a Brother Fax 2850. When I send a fax the receiver has advised me that there is a vertical black line approx 2'' thick which blocks out some wording. How do I fix this?? Many Thanks Heather


Something is jammed in or covering the optics.
Check the area where the original document is placed for faxing.
Open this area and clean any liquid paper, sticky tape or staples covering the optics.
Test by making a copy. When the black line on a copy goes away the unit is fixed.
If the receiver is still getting this black line then it is probably their machine and not yours.
Send a fax to this number. 1300 368 999 It will send you back a copy of what it receives.

SHARP UX-A1000 - sends all BLACK page (to all


Noisy line? is all that strikes true when you ensure me it makes great photocopys, but then you receive OK, very strange, All the mechanisms for doing a local copy is the same as sending a fax the difference is the conversion to phone noise so it has to be electronic, I;d guess lightning/power surge, cant think of much else....sorry

On sending a fax the receiver copy has a black


You must clean the glass strip that the origional passes over to be scanned. You may have White-Out or an Ink smuge on it. Another way to determine if it is your FAX is to put in an original and make a copy. If the line is on your copy than it is your scanner **** (glass).

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

Totally black transmissions


Copy lamp has blown, light should shine in where original is placed.... it isnt lighting the paper up, so reflection received is black hence black transmit/copy result

It is just a small specilised floro but would probally be more ecomomical to replace machine than to fix it.
