My brother intellifax 4100e is feeding double my document

theres a flat rubber seperator it has a springy metal backing on it, on the part that opens up on the feeder that is probably worn out.
Best way is to replace it ...its a cheap part. you can clean it real good with alchohol, and it may work better for a while but the part should be applies pressure to the roller and seperated the second sheet from feeding

My fax machine is showing failed pickup error, what shall i do

Paper Pick up Rollers get dirty or worn out with the passage of time. Hence, require cleaning or replacement if worn out. In case you find them dirty use a soft, dry, lint free cloth to clean the rollers. Dont use chemicals as they may damage the rubber and plastic. However, if needed, you can use damp cloth or some cleaning liquid such as mild detergent of glass cleaner to damp the cloth. As you have posted your question under Panasonic KX-FL511 is would highlight the steps for it. Im Using a similar model KX-FL612


Lift the top Cover, Locate the roller and clean them..
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

The bypass tray is contantly jamming when we try to print.

Hi, i'd start with cleaning any rubber rollers in the paper path, if its picking multiple sheets and then jamming, it will need a pick roller and seperation pad, hope this is helpful ,M.

I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.

The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!

We have a MF6550 copier and fax machine. sometimes it doesn't pick up the paper and therefor we get no faxes. Other times it will say processing memory and get stuck there until we turn off the machine...

8/10 its normally due to the Pick up Roller, There should be a arm and a Spring which allows the rollers to spring back. Turn the machine on its back and see if they are there? This will always cause it to jam and the roller will not return.

Hope this helps

Auto feed of outgoing fax document.

Replacing the roller can be prety extensive work. Try to check and make that the pick-up roller on the bottom is flat across sometimes it can get turns backwards and it has a round side that will not grasp the paper. If this is ture just take your finger and push the roller forwards. You can alo take a clean wipe and wipe off all of the rollers the rollers are made to be a little tacky when they start to get a little older dust can build up on them causing them not to grab the paper

Faulty fax machine

You can try cleaning that roller with a rag and some rubbing alcohol. Scrub it really good all the way around and that should help.
