I have a brothers mfc8220, i am having trouble hooking it up wireless. What am i doing wrong?


The only way you can connect this wireless is if you either connect the USB cable to your router directly with a USB cable or by connecting the printer to a computer and then share it over the network.

The fax paper can not go through, and the window turn red light said error A6


You will need to take it in for service.

Machine Error A6 is an indication of a mechanical malfunction and the unit will require servicing.

Scanner not working


I work at a brother authorized repair center, the bad thing is that there is no specified A6 error, in any manual and when you call brother and tell them that you are calling from an Authorized repair center and that you need help with an A6 they*gasp* tell you to call an authorized repair center. Sorry about the rant.

The A6 is a general error relating to the scandeck on most MFC machines(9700/8440/8640) etc...

try changing the main PCB, it can be a little costly, however it generally doesn't take long, that is the general cause of the error. However, sometimes that doesn't work, so to save yourself a little time and money, just go buy another printer.
