You need to buy the left cover hinge, how ever so that you can use the machine, by the cover there is a sensor button, tape it down and you can still use the adf

Just installed a new drum unit in my Brother DCP1000, and it's still reading "Replace Drum soon"


heya!
this stands for brother mfc-8440 as in the title.
you need to reset the "drum counter" of your printer..
to do so try one of those

Brother Laser Printers:

After replacing the drum unit, keep the front cover open (make sure the power is on). Press and hold the "GO" button until all four LED's are lit. Once the four LED's light up, close the front cover. Make sure the drum LED is off. The counter is reset!

Brother Fax Machines:

Open the front cover. Press the CLEAR/BACK button. Press 1, when the display shows accepted.

Brother MFC-8440, send fax ok, but no receiving fax


Hi,

The manual has step by step instructions, I'll include a link for the online version. Section four runs through setting up recieving, if it's on a dedicated line follow the first set of instructions to set up automated answering. If it's a shared line(phone/fax) then continue down to the next section.

Note: for a shared line you may need to contact your line provider for a second number that has a "dedicated ring"

I can fax and copy on the glass with the Brother MFC 8440 but not through the ADF. Any suggestions?


This is usually cause by a broken left hinge on the adf. Lift the lid and look near the back at the hinge. If you need the part email me for pricing jtuminaro@officetechservice.com

Good luck!

I have a brother mfc-8440


I would try to plug a regular phone in the jack to see if you are getting a clear signal/dial tone to the machine, if not, you may need to have the phone company come check it out.

This is commonly a problem with the left hinge being broken on the lid where the adf is. Check that and if it is broken i can give you a part number.

Good luck!
