Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies

Faxing a high volume of responses on Brother MFC-8220

We work in a medical center Release of Information office. We sometimes get as many as 25 faxed requests from other treatment providers in one morning. We have to fax 25 sets of medical records to various requesters, and we have to do this very quickly.

With our old fax machine, you could set the documents to be faxed in the tray, dial the fax number, and the machine would immediately scan (?) the documents into the system and would then send them. No waiting. No redial. Move right along to the next set of documents to be faxed. This is what we do.

With our new machine, it can take 15-20 minutes to fax one set of documents. This is time we do not have, and if we're faxing to an intensive care unit or an emergency room, someone's life can be in the balance.

Do you know of a way that we can set the documents to be faxed, dial the number, and have the documents be saved to memory (?) so that we can move along to filling the next several requests???

Please either respond online, or call me at (505) 256-2722.

Thank you!

Hi Gina,

It sounds like the MEMORY function is not set to ON.

Is there a memory button on the control panel?

How to set the date and the time in brother fax mfc-8220? what's the steps?

Your MFC displays the date and time and if you set up the Station ID
it prints on every fax you send. If there is a power failure, you may
have to reset the date and time. All other settings will not be affected.
1 Press Menu, 0, 2.
2 Enter the last two digits of the year.
Press Set.
3 Enter two digits for the month.
Press Set.
(For example, enter 09 for September, or 10 for October.)
4 Enter two digits for the day.
Press Set.
(For example, enter 06 for 6th.)
5 Enter the time in 24-Hour format.
Press Set.
(For example, enter 15:25 for 3:25 P.M.)
6 Press Stop/Exit.
The LCD now shows the date and time whenever the MFC is in
Standby mode.

thx, if this helps please rate :)

I need to replace the ADF Document Support piece on my Brother MFC-8220 fax machine. Do you know where I can purchase one?

I finally located a phone numbe for the Brother-USA Sales Dept. (888-615-9119). The part was $4 plus shipping and handling ($10 total). It took a bit of doing for them to identify the part and determine the part number. I had to fax them a machine parts diagram from the MFC-8220 manual. Go figure.
