I cannot send fax


Hi there!



For you to send a fax with the Brother Fax you can try these steps:

1. First make sure that you have a dial tone by lifting the handset or just by pressing the hook/speakerphone button. Once you have verified you have a dial tone press the hook button again to return to the main screen or hang up the handset. LCD should display the date & time



If you don't have a dial tone make sure that the telephone line cord is connected on the fax machine's Line jack. If you don't have a dial tone still, connect it to another working outlet. If you don't have a dial tone still, connect a working telephone on the wall jack to see if you'll get a dial tone. If you get a dial tone on the regular phone then problem is either with the line cord or the fax machine.



2. Once you have the date & time on the LCD screen, Load the document that you want to send on the automatic document feeder which is directly above the LCD screen.



3. The LCD screen should change from the date/time to "Enter Fax No. & Press Start" Once you got this screen dial the fax number and then press Start.



Hope this helps. Rate if it works.

Thanks!

Brother 575 phone does not work?


If you can send fax out, your handset should have dial tone. If there is no dial tone, try to replace the handset cord.

Hi sythonk
1. Make sure you have a telephone cable connected the jack labelled "LINE" on your brother machine.
Go through the Menu on the LCD, Initial setup, dial tone, choose the correct dial tone PULSE or TONE.
Exit from the menu.
Pick up the handset on the fax machine, and dial your nuber to make a phone call. (To send a fax, dial the number without lifting the handset.)
Hope this will work for you. If it solved your problem, give a please rating
Cheers

HISSS on line; no dial-tone; no fax in or out


it sounds like you may not have any dial tone. the hiss [white noise] you are hearing is from the dsl modem.try plugging a regular corded phone into the jack to check for dial tone.if there is none,call your phone company.also try plugging the fax machine into another jack where you know there is dial tone.
good luck

No Dial tone


Have you had an electric storm or power failure? A power surge can cause no dial tone also. It can be the main PCB in the machine or NCU PCB(board for phone cord). Unplug the machine from the wall, put your finger on the menu key first, plug the machine while holding the menu key, the light will flash and display will say maintenance. Press number 82, if there is a DF error the main board will need to replaced. The main board is the brain of the machine and is one of the most expensive parts of the unit. It is hard to distinguish if it is the modem or the main board on this unit that is causing the unit not to have a dial tone. It may be better to take it to a service center.
