I have this exact printer for home use. Here what you do.

Plug one end of the Cat3 cable ( standard phone cable ) into the modem and the other end into the 1st port to the front on the left side. Then follow the instuctions in the manual to set up the fax service. Its basically asigning your fax name and number from the menu button.

I hope this helps, if ya need more assistance please post here.

My Brother MFC7340 Fax Machine will not send faxes it has a busy signal always and a busy signal when someone tries to fax me.


Hi,
You need to reset the memory, since previously you have dialed some number, which is not able to connect. So restart the printer. Unplug the printer for 10 minutes and plug back the power to the printer.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have a similar black line (about 2inches in width, on the right side) on faxes sent from my Brother 4100e. I cleaned the scanner glass as suggested by you, but it continues to have the same problem on...


Either your machine's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire. I recommend placing the drum unit on a drop cloth or large disposable paper
to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times.
2. Return the tab and snap it into the Home position, (Caution: If the tab is not at the Home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes).
3. Reinstall the drum unit into the machine.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Plug in the power cord first, and then plug in the telephone cord.
or ask the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is with the sending machine.
Try receiving from another fax machine.
If the problem continues, call Brother Customer
Service at: 1-800-284-4329 (in USA) or 1-877-BROTHER (in Canada)

OR

You can also try these steps below

2 Reset the drum counter if you have already changed the drum recently. Open the device's front cover and press the button labeled "Clear," then close the cover and press the "1" button on the device's control panel.

3 Pull down on the top of the device's front cover. Slide the print cartridge assembly out of the inside of the printer and place it on a scratch piece of paper.

4 Depress the lever on the right side of the assembly and separate the toner cartridge from the drum assembly. Remove the new drum unit from its aluminum bag and snap the toner cartridge into it.

5 Place the print cartridge assembly back into the device and keep the front cover open. Press the "Clear" button, then press "1." Close the front cover once the device's screen reads "Accepted."

No dial tone when pressing hook fax is returned


The only thing that could stop you from sending a fax or not get a dial tone, would be the connection to the phone line. Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions. If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

Hooking up cables and phone line to use the Fax on the P3150


Find a telephone wall-jack.
Buy a 1-to-2 telephone-splitter -- one end plugs into the wall-jack, and the other end provides 2 telephone-jacks.

Connect your telephone to one of those 2 jacks.
Connect your All-In-One to the other of those 2 jacks.
Be sure to use a 4-wire telephone-cable, not an 8-wire network-cable.
