I have come in to the office Sat & Sun to find the fax machine giving an error "polygonal error". Faxes received have alot of horizontal lines across the pages and some pages are stored in memory. I disconnect power supply, then reconnect and pages in memory print out with same horizontal lies. Is machine scrap? It has to be 10 years old or better.

Most fax machines allow you to set the number of times the phone rings before it automatically answers the phone. So if you phone goes to voice mail after 4 rings and the fax machine is set to start the fax after the 5th ring it will never receive the faxes because the call went to voice mail. Good Luck
Polygon error. There is a LASER inside the machine which hits a 5 sided minor spinning at about 35000 rpm. That minor is spun my the polygon motor. More then likely you have a bad print head. That is what the entire assy. LASER/motor/Minor/Sensors are called. Power off/then on if it comes back have a technician looks at it.
Yes, you must set up your fax machines like this: The receiving fax must be set to auto receive and the telephone line must be inserted in the "line" input. A line must then be connected from the "Tel" to the "Line" of the Transmitting machine, which must be set to "manual receive." This is not really a satisfactory way of doing things as you can't send and receive 2 machines on the same line together. A much better way is to have 2 lines. with a machine attached to each. Get the tel company to put "No answer transfer" on the line as an accesory. Give them the number of the fax machine that transmits. Make it "manual receive" Now you have a versatile system that you can also use the office telephone with.

You may receive this error if the pc fax application is closed and you have faxes stored in the memory of the machine. To resolve this issue,you will need to print the faxes already stored in the memory of the machine. To print the faxes, please follow these steps:
1. Press the MENU key.
2. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Fax.
3. Press the OK key to confirm your choice.
4. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Print Fax.
5. Press OK.
6. Press the BLACK START key.
- Your Brother machine will print the stored faxes.
7. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.
8. Once the stored faxes have been printed, click WINDOWS/START, (ALL) PROGRAMS, BROTHER, XXX-XXXX (X = MODEL NUMBER), PC-FAX RECEIVING, XXX-XXXX or RECEIVE (depending on your operating system).
9. The Brother PC-fax receiving icon will now appear in your Windows Task Tray indicating that Brother PC-Fax Receiving is active.
You have to have either a dedicated phone line just for the fax --or-- pay your phone company approximately $2 a month for a service called Distinctive Ringtone. This service will ring a certain way when you have an incoming fax. You will then configure your fax machine to pick up when this distinctive rington is heard. The ringtone is usually two or three quick rings. Your fax machine's settings will have this setting.
Unfortunately, you can't just plug your fax machine into your phone line and start sending/receiving faxes. Look through your fax machine's manual regarding the distinctive ring service. Good luck!!
The FAX machine received some FAXes while it was without paper. Make sure the FAX has paper and try printing the stored faxes or check in the fax menu if they can be cleared without printing. Another problem may be that the FAX received not faxes but voice messages, retrieve and delete the messages and the error should be gone.
