Brother IntelliFax-2820 Laser Fax - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Everything seems to indicate a dirty 'corona wire'. This seems to be the most common cause of vertical white lines running the length of a page when copying/sending. Below is a link to the User's guide for your machine with instructions for cleaning the corona and other care when using your fax machine. Best of luck.

Is it a name brand cartridge or a cheaper knock off? Some printers won't recognize a different cartridge even if it is the same size and shape. They make them that way so you have to buy the makers cartridge.

you have an obstruction either a piece of paper between the rolllers or the secondary feed rollers are not turning.... open the machine and follow the feed path ...take a piece of paper and manually feed the paper with the machine in the off position look at the feed rollers then the secondary rollers( usually two small rods with rubber sleeves kissing each other ...if you can look at the sides on the machine( inside the cover) see if the gears ( usually white ) can turn or mesh correctly... if you do not see any obstruction then these rollers are not turning when they are supposed to when you press the print button. 90 percent of these problems are paper jams if no jam something is not activating the feed rollers

I spoke with Brother and one of the options was to open the cover, push options, push start, and then 1, then 1 again. If accept comes up, select. Then close cover and try again.

Was there a loud cracking gear sound when you print ?
Or the printout was blank?
If these two symptoms exist, then your left frame is broken, you need to replace a new left frame or at least the locking DEVELOP JOINT (might be broken).

Open the left cover, you will find 2 solenoids near to the front. When printing you the vertical & horizontal should be working, if not then you will have to clean the solenoids, remove the sticky material around the hole area, apply some WD40 then test it again.

If it still shows telephone press hook/speaker phone.
Hope this will help.
