WONT POWER ON when plugged into a known good power source

What do I do? It does not power on. When I listen closely to the unit when plugging it in it makes a small pop noise, and that's it!!!! Damn it all anyway. Can anybody help me or tell me what I need to do to fix the power failure? Thank you, Shilowest

Re: WONT POWER ON when plugged into a known good power...

This is from the FAQ on a similar model (the 770). My guess is that it won't be much help, but who knows... : The machine is not receiving a power signal. Make sure the power cord is plugged securely to the power outlet. If a surge protector or an extension cord is being used, disconnect them and plug the fax machine's power cord directly to the power outlet. If the fax machine is still not receiving a power signal, try plugging the machine's power cord into a different outlet on another circuit breaker. Good luck

How do i get dial tone on fax machine

first, as a tech, i would make sure your phone jack works, then also make sure the line is plugged into the "line" jack on rear of fax. if those two steps are verified beyond a doubt, press your "hook" button and listen for dail tone. if none, pick up handset and listen. if you get tone on handset, then your speaker is disconnected. if you don't get a tone either way, then chances are you have a bad "NCU" board.

good luck,

Machine will not work. I checked the power source and also the cord is plugged into the machine and power source and still nothing

I don't fully understand what you mean but I assume the machine does not come on?

Some fax machines have a power switch, others don't.
Did you check for a power switch on the machine itself? Might have got turned off by accident.

If the fax suddenly quit, I'm afraid the problem is with the power circuit inside the fax machine.
You may need to take it to a service depot.

Machine is on and showing "error message #77 and says to unplug machine and call dealer. What is error 77?

Error #77 refers to a mechanical problem, but I'd say about 7 times out of 10 it's a mistake. Fortunately, Brother fax machines have override commands :). Try this:

1. Turn the power off and unplug the power source.
2. Press and hold the menu button and plug in the power source (don't let go of the menu button!).
3. Hold the menu button for 5 seconds after plugging in the power source.
4. Release the menu button and press "91"

5. If the screen still shows the error code, press "99".

Hopefully this will override the error and you can get back to work :) .

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Richo 5510nf isn't sending the faxes to the pop server

First, disconnect the fax from the wall and any other device ( after powering down), let set about 30 sec to 1 min. and then only plug the power and phone line into device and power up. Try a hook ( like you are making a call) call to a known fax number, listen for the communication tones -- if they are there, hang up and try to send a fax to that same number. If the error continues you have a scanning problem with the device.

I need to remove the fuser assembly on a Konica Minolta C550.

First turn power off, there are 2 switches. One on the side of the lcd screen and the other is located on the lower right front side. Then unplug from the wall outlet!!!
Now open the r side vertical transport door( note if the fuser unit is hot wait aprox. 30 minutes too cool down) remove the 2 silver screws which are directly on the fuser unit ( use a magnetic tip screw driver, this will make it easier) gripit with both hands to avoid letting the fusing unit fall down.When reinstalling the fusing unit,
be sure to press the fusing unit into
the machine until the surfaces of the gear mesh are seated ok.( there is a green knob to the right that you can turn whch will allow the gears to rotate.
next step is to reinstall the silver screws, and close the transport door. Now you can plug the power cord back in to the wall. and turn on the power switches. Note the fuser counter will automatically reset itself to 0 ( that is if you installed a new Fuser unit.) There might be a funny smell for a couple of hours due to the new unit installed fuser. Good Luck

My handset doen't have a ring tone and cannot be used. Also, my machine won't pick up calls.

Try unplugging power and re-plugging first.

Plug a regular phone into the wall jack and listen for a dial tone.

Make sure the phone line is plugged into the LINE port of the fax machine.
