Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

Send Fax Issue

Recently we had to unplug our 4100 fax in order to cancel an incoming 974 pp document. After doing so we now are having problems sending faxes. Before the machine would press "Fax" and all the documents would scan into memory and then it would dial the number and fax the documents. We could scan several documents to be faxed at a time and not have to wait to scan them individually. How to I reset the fax so we can fax several documents at a time?
Thanks

We have a Brother 4100 Fax Machine. When we send a fax or make a copy, there is a black bar about 2" wide that shows up the length of the page. It does not appear on incoming faxes. I believe it is...


Make sure the **** glass is clean, use a micro fiber cloth to wipe the debris/old toner or white out off the glass. restart the fax machine. If it prints this black line from a copy and it is 2" wide after you have cleaned both the glass and the white reference bar, most likley the scanner itself has failed.

Black strip in documents when I send a fax


If you lift up the top, like you are clearing a jammed original, you should see a piece of glass across the machine. Look for something on the glass, usually white-out, and clean it. Test by making a copy. If copy is ok, then you fixed the problem.

This problem could be Phone line problem, or hardware failure or receiver's (the machine of the person whom you are sending the fax) machine problem and so on. First, let's check the line, if you have another Phone line, please dial from the number to your number, also, connect the currently connected line to a receiver and call a Land-line number, if the outgoing or incoming is ok, the proceed forward, otherwise, you telephone operator should check the line.


Sometimes, sending fax to a particular number doesn't work, to make sure, try sending a fax to another number.

If the line which is connected to the machine is extended from another machine such as Receiver, Switch, etc... unplug them and connect the fax machine directly to the Line.

It's also important to adjust the compatibility mode, to do this, follow the steps below:
  • Press Menu.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Fax.
  • Press OK.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Miscellaneous.
  • Press OK.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Compatibility.
  • Press the left or right arrow key to select Basic (for VoIP).
  • Press OK.
  • Press Stop/Exit.

If you place the scanning document/file on the auto-sheet feeder, you can help it pulling inside the passage or you can use the glass (flatbed) instead. Sometimes, this small mistakes with the sheet-feeder creates this problem. You can also clean the rollers inside the ADF (auto document feeder) passage.

If all of the above measure don't help, I would suggest you to call brother and seek their help. The rest is with mechanical or we can say hardware or firmware related issue. (use this form to contact Brother)

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
