No, ALL fax machines are ANALOG devices. It may work for a couple of faxes, but it will be very unreliable.

I have a Brother mfc-8440. It prints light on the


Usually when it prints light on one side and normal on the other, it's either the drum (which you replaced) a dirty corona wire, or the toner is unevenly distributed in the cartridge. You can removed the toner cartridge and gently drop it from a distance of about 4-5 inches to dislodge any caked up toner. This is normal in a cartridge that has sat a while or if the fax machine is in a room with high humidity.
Hope this answers your question and best of luck.

Can't receive faxes but can send them okay


The easiest thing to check is the recieve mode setting. most of the time when this happens the machine is set on manual recieve. Set it to automatic recieve and you should be fine.

Brother Intellifax 770 fax machine failure to receive faxes


I get calls all the time about fax issues. I work for Comcast and have guided people to the right answers about third party devices. We use a digital connection. Analog is a dying medium. Most calls are concerning HP and Brother but I know others fax machines have had problems too. The new HP machines have a digital setting. HP is aware of digital issues and can help you. It is unfortunate that old fax machines are not digital but a new fax is inexpensive if you wish to buy one. Analog takes up too much space. An example: Six digital television channels can fit in the same space (bandwidth) as one analog. That is why the FCC mandated the change. The same goes for phone lines. I Google almost every problem concerning fax machines and if you go past all the upset comments you will get to the comments that offer remedy. I also wanted everyone to know that a second, no frills fax line from Comcast is very inexpensive and our way of offering a dedicated fax line intead of a distinctive ring fax option.
