Try this :
To resolve this situation do the following:

1. If another operation is in progress (example: receiving a fax,
printing, etc), press STOP/EXIT, wait until it's completed and then try
again.

2. Clear the machines memory. This can be done by turning off Advanced
Fax Operations.

a. Press MENU.

b. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Fax.

c. Press OK.

d. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Advanced Fax Operation.

e. Press OK.

f Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Fwd/Page/Store.

g. Press OK.

h. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW to choose Off.

i. Press OK.

j. Press STOP/EXIT.

If received faxes are left in your machine's memory when you change the
Advanced Fax Operations and a backup copy has already been printed, the
LCD will ask:

Erase All Fax?

Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

If received faxes are left in your machine's memory when you change the
Advanced Fax Operations and a backup copy has not yet been printed, the
LCD will ask:

Print All Fax?

Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

# If you press 1, faxes in the memory will be erased or printed before
the setting changes.

# If you press 2, faxes in the memory will not be erased or printed and
the setting will be unchanged.

k. Try your operation again.

Good luck...

SOURCE: I have a brother MFC 440 cn printer. How can I

You can download the drivers from the Manufacturer Web Site. You do not mention which Operating System you have ie: Windows7, XP , Home Edition…

Go to the Manufacturer Web Site ie: Epson.com or hp.com. Brother.com, etc, and choose your OS and download and install the drivers and software, then restart your computer.

The website will have the software "drivers" for you to download that your printer model's installation CD-ROM originally came with. This is necessary for your computer to recognize what kind of printer you're plugging in to it.

The printer's installation CD-ROM had the exact same drivers that you will be downloading so it will be like if you’re getting the installation CD-ROM again but only via the internet instead of having an actual CD-ROM so don't worry about it.

Some generations of people are terrified of using the internet for no other reason then FEAR of the unknown and that is not my problem. Just be brave.

Thanks and Good luck. .

Fax problem


I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

Brother 465 CN Won't pring in fax mode


It's all part of the setup that's in your manual. If you use the menu, go to reports and print the user settings you can check if it's set to hold faxes in memory or to print right away. It's all done by user selection.

Problem with my fax Machine MFC 420CN


You can cancel a fax job that is stored and waiting in the memory.
1 For MFC-210C,
press Menu/Set, 2, 5.
For MFC-420CN,
press Menu/Set, 2, 6.
Any jobs that are waiting will appear on the LCD.
2 If you have more than one job waiting, press ▲ or ▼ to select the
job you want to cancel.
Press Menu/Set.
—OR—
If you only have one job waiting, go to Step 3.
3 Press 1 to cancel.
To cancel another job go to Step 2.
—OR—
Press 2 to exit without canceling.
4 Press Stop/Exit.

That should do it for clearing faxes you dont need you can also print off all the faxes in the memory and I believe that clears it.
Enjoy,
Lee
