Question about Brother IntelliFAX 560 Plain Paper Fax

Digital phone service

I dont think the digital phone service is the issue but it is merely a coincidence that I just began having this problem. The indicator blinks back and forth from enter the fax number or enter amount of doesnt accept any input from any button. I have tried to unplug, and plug in elsewhere. Left in unplugged for weeks...didnt change anything. How do I reset ? How can it be fixed if it wont respond to ANY buttons ?

Re: Digital phone service

Sound to me that the copy button maybe stuck slightly this will explain way none of the other buttons will work. I suggest to spray a anti-static cleaner onto the control panel allow to soak for abot 20-30 seconds then wipe clean. Of course the machine should be off while you do this.

Failing the above try unscrewing the control panel and cleaning from within. If this still doesn't work then the likely hood is that the control panel if faulty and will need replacing and unfortunately this out ways the cost of the machine unless you can obtain a second hand one.

Hope this is help to you
Thanks J

I have a Cannon MX310 printer, fax , copier. I cannot receive faxes. Can it have something to do with the fact that I have digital phone service, what setting does it need to work.

You might try a DSL phone filter to eliminate extraneous noise on the digital line. My digital phone line had constant, repetitave clicking noise until I installed a DSL filter. Have you tried calling your fax number from a cell phone to see if there is noise on the line and or if the fax will pick up?

L75 vs DSL phone line

Fax machines are ANALOG devices designed to work with POTS (plain old telephone system).

Sometimes you can get away with a fax or two w/digital lines, but the machine will be very unreliable.

I don't think there is any damage as the machines have voltage limiter circuits built in. [except for lightning]

Brother Intellifax 770 fax machine failure to receive faxes

I get calls all the time about fax issues. I work for Comcast and have guided people to the right answers about third party devices. We use a digital connection. Analog is a dying medium. Most calls are concerning HP and Brother but I know others fax machines have had problems too. The new HP machines have a digital setting. HP is aware of digital issues and can help you. It is unfortunate that old fax machines are not digital but a new fax is inexpensive if you wish to buy one. Analog takes up too much space. An example: Six digital television channels can fit in the same space (bandwidth) as one analog. That is why the FCC mandated the change. The same goes for phone lines. I Google almost every problem concerning fax machines and if you go past all the upset comments you will get to the comments that offer remedy. I also wanted everyone to know that a second, no frills fax line from Comcast is very inexpensive and our way of offering a dedicated fax line intead of a distinctive ring fax option.

Analog to Digital Phone Service

Nope this machine needs a dedicated analog fax line it does not work in a digital telephone system.But if you are in a very small office with a few staff. you can get your telephone people to tap off a line off the demarcation block that comes into your telephone room for your fax.
