Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax
First error 76 appeared on screen. I unplugged machine. Plugged everything in again and error 77 came up.
Unplugging does not correct situation
I need the fax machine STAT!
Unplug the unit.
Hold down the menu key while plugging back in / powering up.
When finished initializing, hit 99.
Wait to status comes back and hit 91.
This supposedly happens due to a power surge or outage.
If this doesn't work for you try reversing the numbers above.
I have a bad memory, it might be 91 first then 99 but, you definately have to hold down the menu key.

Error codes in parentheses do not appear in the "MACHINE ERROR X X", since those errors are
displayed as messages described in "[ 1 ] Error messages on the LCD." In the maintenance mode
(Function code 82), those error codes may be displayed.
