Fax machine print light


When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.

Normally the problem is low toner.

I want to receive my copies out the front not the back of the fax/copy machine.


You will need to close the back cover. The reason its comming out the back because it has been left open.

I have a Brother fax and copy machine and have just replaced toner with a brother TN 350 cartridge and still getting message that toner is low


You didn't include the model, but here are instructions for the Fax-2820; it should work for any of the models that use the TN-350 toner:
  1. With the power on, open the front cover.
  2. Press the Options key. The display will read "Change Drum?"
  3. Press Start.
  4. Press 1 0.
  5. The display reads "Accepted" for about 2 seconds, then change to "Cover Open."
  6. Close cover. The "Replace toner" message should be cleared.
Normally, inserting a new cartridge (with the power on) will reset the toner counter, and you won't have to do any of this.

I get a partial copy when using my Sharp FO 5600


Make a copies with something with a lot of print. open top cover when the paper is 1/2 way through the machine. pull out the toner & drum unit's look at the drum is there a full image on the drum but not on the paper then it is a transfer problum. If no image on the drum then we have a laser unit problum. There is a shutter that opens when you put the drum in & closes the top cover. it may fallin out of place. hard to git at or somthing is blocking the laser beam ( paper, dust bunnyies or fourn objest ) hope this helps let me Know

PLS OPEN COVER MESSAGE


i don't know how far you tore this down but usually this problem has to do with the black arm linkage that hooks to the left side of front door. if it appears to be hooked to door ok, then if you took all covers off you may have dislodged the linkage further back where it hooks to your laser shutter.

Recipient recieves a black page


I have seen the print cartridge not being seeted cause this problem.
  1. Open the front cover by pulling the cover release buttons toward you, and raising the cover.

    Slightly lift up on the Laser Printer Cartridge and then pull it toward you, but do not remove it.

    WARNING: The Fuser is hot! Use caution when you are working in this area. To prevent damage to the cartridge, do not expose it to light for more than a few minute.

    CAUTION: Do not touch the green Photoreceptor Drum. Scratches or smudges on the Photoreceptor will result in poor copy quality and may shorten the life of the cartridge.

  2. Slide the cartridge back down along the slots until it clicks into place.

  3. Close the Front Cover.
    Then Unplug an replug in the machine.

which cover are you opening? You must pull open the bottom cover not the one under the keyboard. It's the bottom front cover not the top front cover.
