Question about Brother FAX-1030e Plain Paper Thermal transfer

Open Question

Brother Fax-1030. Not worked since power failure. Only prints power failure report saying 'The electricity failed. The Following data was lost ? Transmission Memory'. Then stops and the LCD screen displays 'Check Paper' and when you reset the paper supply it then prints another 'power failure report' and then goes back to 'check paper'. When a fax did try to come in the LCD screen displayed 'memory full' but now it has gone back to 'check paper'!!!!!!! How can I reset the transmssion memory??????? Thanks Sue

SOURCE: No manual to "Brother Super G3 336kbps IntelliFax-2920"

It is telling you the fuser unit needs replacement. Thats the heater that fuses the toner particles to the paper by heating them. If it cannot reach the correct tempurature the toner comes right off the paper.

So you will need to order a fuser wire kit to fix that error. That can be fairly expensive on a brother. I believe somewhere around $150 and up.

I can at least help you get a replacement manual. This link takes you to the downloads for your printer and you can then download the various manuals.

SOURCE: brother 8360p has faxes in memory but will not

I have seen a few Brother faxes do this. I fixed them by turning off the power, holding down the clear/stop button and keep holding it down while you turn the power back on. Keep holding it for a few seconds then release. This will clear what ever is in the memory that is locking up the memory print. Note: you will lose any received faxes in memory by using this procedure.
This may help you restore your fax to a operation condition.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

The brother fax machine will always print out a transmission report when there is a failure to send a fax.

There is no way to turn this feature off.
The closest option to this is turning transmission reports off, but this will still print out a message when the fax does not go through properly.

I faxed something last week and lost the transmisson verification report, can it be re-printed? does my fax keep it in memory?

It's possible to print a Fax Activity report which would show both incoming and outgoing fax activity. To do this, do the following:
  1. Press Reports
  2. Use arrow keys < > to select 3. Fax Activity
  3. Press Set
If Fax Activity hasn't been set up, do the following:

Setting the Fax Activity Report Interval
You can set the machine to print activity reports at specific intervals (EVERY 50 FAXES, 6, 12, 24 hours, 2 or 7 days). If you set the interval to OFF, you can print the report by following the Steps in the next page.

  1. Press Menu, 2, 4, 2.
  2. Press or to choose an interval,
    and then press Set.
    (If you choose 7 days, the LCD prompts you to choose a day at which to begin
    the 7-day countdown.)
I hope this enables you to recover your transmission report. Please post back with any questions or just to rate the solution. Thank you very much.

Need to confirm details of when and what number a fax was sent approx 15 days ago.

The only way to check old transfer info for faxes is by printing out the journal. The way to do this varies from fax to fax, but most often is either with it's own button "reports" (and then "fax journal"), or by choosing "print reports" in the regular menu. The journal is emptied during power outs, so if you have had a power failure since, you cannot get the information. Additionally, the only info you will get from this is to where/from where the fax was sent, and if it was successful. Any information on the actual fax content is unavailable.

Display says "printing online" but it is not connected to a PC

unplug machine, press and hold down the "stop/exit" key while pluggung back in. continue to hold the button down for 5 secs, then release. if machine returns to the regular date/time display, you should be alright. if not, then you'll have to call brother or an authorized service center. this is usually caused by a fax stuck in memory, which this procedure should clear.

good luck,

IntelliFAX 4750E - Printer Busy

The printers memory may be full depending on the type of documents they are printing. The first and most simple step is to unplug the power cord from the back of the unit for 30 seconds, put your finger on the stop key while plugging the unit back up and continue holding the stop key until the time and date are back on the display of the Brother unit.

If that does not work unplug the USB cable from the PC. Unplug the power cord from the unit again. Put your finger on the menu key first and then plug the unit back up. You want to hold the menu key unit the until the LCD says maintanence and all the lights are flashing. Let the menu key go and press the number 82 and will give you an error code. If the error code is 00 then there are no errors. If there is an error code record it and contact brother or check a service manual if you have one. Most laser products all have the same error codes with Brother.

To reset the unit press stop and then 91, this will reset the unit and all faxes or print jobs will be lost. This should clear the issue.
