Question about Brother IntelliFAX 2800 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Had a power outage, a day later i noticed fax would not copy or print out internal reports. Faxes received are unreadable. When I try to make 8 or so copies, it scans them but memory stays at 00% and it spits out 1 or 2 blank pieces of paper. Any ideas

It seems that your fax machine has been damaged by a power "spike" You may or may not be able to get it to work again. You can try to re sequence the machine, by switching off, then removing both the power cord and the telephone cord from the wall. Wait 30 secs or so, then plug in the power cord and switch on. After the machine shows the "ready" mode in the display, then plug in the telephone cord. If this does not work, your machine is toast. Make sure in future to use a line conditioner for both the power and the telephone lines.

I'm not receiving certain faxes. How do I ensure they will all be sent to me?


Dear
Pl. check the memory received., If your fax setting is not done for memory setting i.e. when you receive a fax that immediately printed .Then the fax machine is right some times voice calls also generated if it was given earlier for that or used for voice call, so caller may try to communicate for voice call and got the fax tone (as the fax machine is in auto mode),he simple disconnect the line.
and fax machine may display some error message.
Thanks.

Why our fax sending and receiving solid black


Its a problem with scaner unit. Reports are being printed out, and do not pass trough scaner, because of thath report is Ok.

If the fax is still under warranty, go to warranty provider service.

Next time dont buy "kids toy" for fax machine. Try laser Canon Fax L140.

Top of page prints OK. Bottom blank


My first guess would be phone line problem. Print out an activity report (if you don't have a users manual you can download it at www.brother-usa.com ) and check to see if you have had any communication errors. If you notice no errors then make 50 test copies. If your test copies look good then I would lean towards a phone line problem. if they come out like you have described then I would start with your toner and drum first, second laser and third main board.

Print Quality Problem with Brother 2820 Fax


sounds like you are using generic drum and toner. try OEM (brother brand). you say copies are coming out completely gray. try printing an internal report from the control panel. if that is gray or received faxes are gray, then the problem is not in your scanner area, and i would wager you are using "generic" supplies.

Daily report/printout


At the end of the each day,press funcktion and then report,select activity report and press "ok"
This is the only way the activaty report can be printed at a spesific time.If you switch the report on in the report settings it will only print when the memory is near full.The other way is to switch TX report to on in report settings,but the you will get a report after every fax that you sent.

Not printing faxes


It appears you have a faulty connection. Make sure the line is connected properly, also check to see if you have your settings set to Fax/Fax Receive mode.
