Question about Brother IntelliFAX 885MC Plain Paper Thermal transfer Fax

2 Answers

When I try to fax and hit the send fax button in the window recieve appears

I have a intellifax 775 with the same problemso I purchased a new intellifax 885, set it up and tried to fax and the machine displays recieve instead of send. I do not know how to correct this problem. I have a DSL and tried connecting directly to the wall and bypassed the DSL filters and still had this problem. I am at a loss. Any help would be appreciated

    Many thanks, I planned to do that this pm. Why would the fax machine suddenly have a line problem even though it is an analog device? Just wondering. I called the telephone company but was hesitant to have a linesman come out because of the fee.

I took it home and plugged in and no problem. Worked great. I still have the office problem, out of a fax machine. Thanks for your help.

Fax machines are ANALOG devices. DSL is digital.

Before throwing it out, it would take it somewhere where there is a regular phone line (Plain Old Telephone System([POTS] and test it.

    Digital service is just too fast for analog machines. I don't put a lot of faith in DSL filters, either.



    Not calling the phone is a good idea for now, they'll just send a flannel shirt who doesn't know anything anyway.



    We'll fix this problem.

Sending a fax


First make sure that the fax button has been pushed and is llit...

The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.

The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.

Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.

Fax installation


There is no installation CD for this machine. The machine sends, receives and copies. The machine will not connect to a computer and does not need a CD to perform it's functions. Years ago Brother had a 770 which is the father of 775 that connected to a computer by purchasing software and a cable(PCI-1). This software is outdated and does not work well with any of the current windows programs. Most Brother ink-jet and laser products will connect to a computer via an installation CD or down loading the drivers from Brother.com. None of their thermal machines will connect to a computer.
