MFC-7840w printer, how do i take it off sleep mode?


  • The control panel features a series of buttons as well as an LED "Status" screen.

  • Press the "MENU" button. Go to INITIAL SETUP, select "FAX" select "RECEIVE MODE" change to F/T
  • If you are using the Brother on a line by itself, set it to "Fax." If you are using the Brother on a line that also shares a telephone, set it to "Fax/Telephone." If you are using the Brother IntelliFax along with ananswering machine, set it to "TAD." Once you set your IntelliFax to the appropriate mode, the unit will leave "Sleep" mode and be ready for use.
  • Select "GENERAL SETUP" go to "ECOLOGY" and #2 is SLEEP TIME = adjust to 60 sec. This keeps the machine from becoming idle/sleep mode for a longer period.

    Can't send or receive faxes


    it's most likely the compression on the phone line or you need to set up your fax machine for proper receive mode.
    Contact your phone service provider to see if they support faxes.
    (Faxes cannot handle nearly as much compression as standard voice)

    hello there, Try Connecting the Lexmark All-in-One directly to the phone port...but make sure that Do NOT connect any phones to the EXT port.
    Make sure the Fax receive mode is set to answer the fax after 3 rings. (Press the Fax button on the operator panel and then press Options three times until ANSWER FAX WHEN is displayed. Change the settings using the - or + buttons as appropriate.)

    If this does not work then do get back for any further help.

    It will only automatically pick up the line when set to "fax". You need to subscribe to a "distinctive" ring (which is a double ring) service through your telephone company and set the rings to answer appropriately so as to not conflict with your voicemail

    Have to be near fax machine to recieve fax


    The Rings to Answer feature might not be set to answer after the
    appropriate number of rings for your office setup.
    If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use
    for fax calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically. For
    information on how to receive faxes manually, see receive a fax
    manually from a phone
    on page 48.
    If you have a PC modem on the same phone line with your
    HP Officejet, check to make sure that the modem’s software is not
    set to receive faxes automatically. Modems with this auto fax
    receive feature turned on will take over the phone line to receive all
    incoming faxes, which will prevent the HP Officejet from receiving
    fax calls.
    If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with
    your HP Officejet, you might have one of the following problems:
    Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow
    the HP Officejet to detect fax tones, and the calling fax machine
    might disconnect.
    Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after
    your outgoing message to allow the HP Officejet to detect fax
    tones. This problem is more common with digital answering
    machines.
    The following actions might help solve these problems:
    a. Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax.
    If faxing is successful without it, the answering machine might
    be causing the problem.
    b. Reconnect the answering machine and re-record your outgoing
    message. Make sure the message is as short as possible (no
    more than 10 seconds long), and that you speak softly and
    slowly when recording it. Try again to receive a fax.
    If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using
    a distinctive ring service through your telephone company), make
    sure that the Answer Ring Pattern feature on your HP Officejet is set
    to match. For example, if the phone company has assigned your
    fax number a double ring pattern, make sure Double Rings is
    selected as the Answer Ring Pattern setting. For information on
    changing this setting, see change the answer ring pattern
    (distinctive ringing)
    on page 63.
    Note that some ring patterns cannot be recognized by the
    HP Officejet, such as those with alternating short and long ringing
    patterns. If you are having problems with a ring pattern of this type,
    ask your phone company to assign a non-alternating ring pattern.

    Before you begin


    To pinpoint the cause of the issue, please record answers to the following questions:

    Can a fax be sent or received?
    Can a fax be sent, but not received?
    Has the fax function ever worked in the past?

    Any error messages may also help to narrow down the cause of the issues.

    Print out the following:

    - a settings list to view the current fax settings
    - a receive log if there are issues receiving faxes
    - a send log if there are issues sending faxes
    - an activity log if faxes cannot be sent or received.
    Initial checks
    If the fax option has worked in the past and does not do so now, check that the same connection is being used and that it still works.
    Check to see if any configuration settings have been changed that could have affected the fax settings.

    Faxes cannot be sent/received:
    If you are using a digital line, you need an analog card, an ISDN adapter, or an ADSL filter in order to send faxes.
    If a PBX is being used, an ISDN Adapter/ADSL filter will not be used as these are supplied within the system. (A PBX is normally used within a company to share a small number of public lines among a large number of private ones to save on cost.) For instructions on configuring the X6100 Series machine with a PBX, see How and When to Use the PBX Option.
    Check the phone line (without the printer):
    Test the line by connecting a phone directly into the phone port.
    Check for a dialing tone.
    If you cannot hear a dialing tone, try another phone cable. Once you can hear a dialing tone, you know that the phone port is live and working.
    Make sure the RJ11 cable is not damaged.
    Check that the printer is accessing the dialing tone correctly:
    Press the Options button on the operator panel five times until ON HOOK DIAL is displayed.
    Press Select. You should hear a dialing tone.
    If you can't hear a dial tone, make sure that the speaker volume is set to High. (Go to Fax, press Options eight times until SPEAKER VOLUME is displayed, then use the plus or minus buttons to change the setting to HIGH. Press Select.)
    If there is still no dial tone, unplug the power cable and the phone lead, then plug them back in and try again.

    Faxes can be sent but not received:
    Connect the Lexmark All-in-One directly to the phone port. IMPORTANT: Do NOT connect any phones to the EXT port.
    Make sure the Fax receive mode is set to answer the fax after 3 rings. (Press the Fax button on the operator panel and then press Options three times until ANSWER FAX WHEN is displayed. Change the settings using the - or + buttons as appropriate.)

    Faxes can be received but not sent:
    Make sure that Country Code is set correctly:
    Press the Fax button on the operator panel and then press Options 15 times until Advanced is displayed.
    Press Select.
    Press Options 13 times and then press the + or - button until the right country is displayed.
    Press Select.

    IMPORTANT! These tests must be carried out with NO EXTENSIONS, i.e. phones or answering machines, connected to the EXT port on the All-In-One.
