Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I've got a Brother MFC-9440CN. I put all my customers on speed dial; often I send the same fax to all customers. I press speed dial search; find the customer and OK. It looks like I could press one button, and the broadcast fax would go to all my customers. Am I just not doing something right?

Need to know how to fax from mcf 210c


How to enter Fax mode
Before sending faxes, make sure (Fax) is illuminated in
green. If not, press (Fax) to enter Fax mode. The default
setting is Fax.
How to dial
You can dial in any of the following different ways.
Manual dialing
Press all of the digits of the phone or fax number.
Setup Send
3 - 2 SETUP SEND
Speed-Dialing
Press Search/Speed Dial, #, and then the two digit Speed-Dial
number. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
Search
You can search for names you have stored in the Speed-Dial
memories. Press Search/Speed Dial and the navigation keys to
search. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
* To search alphabetically, you can use the dial pad to enter the first
letter of the name you are looking for.
Fax Redial
If you are sending a fax manually and the line is busy, press
Redial/Pause, and then press Black Start or Color Start to try
again. If you want to make a second call to the last number dialed,
you can save time by pressing Redial/Pause and Black Start or
Color Start.
Redial/Pause only works if you dialed from the control panel.
If you are sending a fax automatically and the line is busy, the MFC
will automatically redial one time after five minutes.
If the LCD shows Not Registered when you enter the
Speed-Dial number, a number has not been stored for it.

Color fax transmission
Your MFC can send a color fax to machines that support this feature.
However, color faxes cannot be stored in the memory. When you
send a color fax, the MFC will send it in real time (even if Real Time
TX is set to Off).

I have registered my Brother MFC 9840CDW on the brother website but it still says "not registered" when I try to email a scanned document. I registered it online. Do I have to do anything on the...


If the LCD shows Not Registered when you enter a One-Touch or a Speed-Dial number, it means that an email or number is not stored there.

If you selected E-Mail and save the E-mail address, you can only use the E-mail address when you are in Scan mode. If you selected IFAX and save the E-mail address, you can only use the E-mail address when you are in Fax mode.

Your machine has 20 One-Touch keys where you can store 40 fax or telephone numbers or E-mail addresses for automatic dialing. To access numbers 21 to 40, hold down Shift as you press the One-Touch key

You can dial in any of the following ways.

Manual dialing
Use the dial pad to enter all the digits of the telephone or fax number.

One-touch dialing

Press the One-Touch key that stores the number you want to call. (See Storing one-touch dial numbers on page 60.)

To dial One-Touch numbers 21 to 40, hold down Shift as you press the One-Touch key.

Speed-dialing

Hold down Shift as you press Search/Speed Dial, and then enter the three-digit Speed-Dial number. (See Storing speed-dial numbers on page 61.) Three-digit number

The fax on my brother MFC-8460N does not work. it does not pick up a dialing tone when sending and on receiving it rings once says receiving bit nothing comes through. Please help


Your modem setting probably is not compabile with the data rate your phone will support.

From the user manual --

If you are having difficulty sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the phone line, we recommend that you
adjust the compatibility setting to reduce the
modem speed for fax operation

Press a or b to choose Basic or
Normal (or High).
Basic cuts the modem speed to
9600 bps. Unless interference is a
recurring problem on your phone
line, you may prefer to use it only
when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps.
High sets the modem speed at
33600 bps.
Press OK.
Press Stop/Exit.

The other thing to consider is do you have tone or pulse dial service from your telephone company?

How do I send one fax to multiple receipents?


you need to set up a group to send to. So if the group is always changing this may not help much.

Groups allow you to send the same fax message to multiple numbers (broadcasting). You can store the Groups on your One-Touch keys or SpeedDial locations and then broadcast by pressing a One-Touch key and Fax Start or by pressing Search/Speed Dial, the three digit location and FaxStart. First, you will need to store each fax number you wish to includein your Group as either a One-Touch or Speed Dial number. Then, you can combine these numbers into a group. Finally, you can have up to six Groups, or you can assign up to 131 numbers to one large Group. Each Group uses one One-Touch key or Speed Dial location. To set up a Group, please follow these steps:


1. Press Menu, 2 (Fax), 3 (Set Auto Dial), 3 (Setup Groups).


2. Press the One-Touch key on which you wish to store the Group or pressSearch/Speed Dial followed by the three-digit Speed Dial location where you wish to store the Group. The LCD will read SETUP GROUP:G0 ENTER & SET.

We have model MFC-9440CN. we can't send faxes, there is no dial tone. I have checked the telephone connections and all is fine. what might the problem be?


You state that you have checked the telephone connections but have you tried a telephone in the jack you are using? Also, on the printer, make sure that you are connected to the side that says 'line' or 'wall' and not phone. Try hooking a phone to the output that says phone and make sure the dialtone is getting through.
