I have a brother LC51 and when I try to fax, it rings but once the receiving fax picks up, I get a busy signal. Also, it will not receive faxes. Any Ideas. Thank You in advance for any suggestion.

If you're printing on photo paper, make sure you are printing on the correct side. Most photo paper has only one side to print on, the other side is a non-porous backing, and ink will sit on the surface until it dries (15 - 30 minutes, depending on temperature and humidity). And it won't look good even when it dries.

If you're printing on the correct side, try a different brand/type of photo paper.

How long has the printer been in service?
Check your settings in the menu and see if you do not have it set too dark.
Take a moist paper towell and try dabbing off any excess ink from the head.
Go to and try ordering a new printhead, should be free.

On the fuser (under the top cover), there are 2 green levers with envelopes on them. The one on the right is probably flipped up. The purpose of these levers is to decrease pressure on the paper when printing on envelopes which are 2 or 3 layers of paper. It reduces the wrinkling that occurs when printing envelopes on most laser printers. Flip that lever down and you're golden.

Hello windymejia4,
Try these things. 1. is the tape still covering cartidges? Take off and try to print? 2. Is the right print drve picked? control panel, printer , make sure your printer is picked as defualt. 3. did you allow printer to do alignment? 4. see if ink will smug your finger with ink, when one of the cartdges is taken out? If not use a pencil eraser and erase the mental tip where ink is suppose to come out? Is this a fixya?

Copies come out smugged

There are several things you want to check before you go replacing the fuser that usually just burns out and when it does all the panel lights flash at the same time. The problem you are describing is more likely excessive toner build-up check when the printer is off to see if there is a ridge of toner caked up where the paper enters the fuser assembly if so this can be scraped off carefully so as not to damage the fuser itself. Clean the transfer roller also or lastly clean the laser printhead itself it is able to be reached after removing the toner cartridge and using a DRY soft cloth to wipe back and forth along the fingerwide slit inside on the top of the printer. Also a defective/empty toner cartfidge could be to blame.

good luck

It is fairly easy to do yourself. A new screen runs about 50 dollars on ebay. They usually come with fairly good instructions and the screwdriver you need to do it.
