Question about Brother MFC 8500 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

When fax, the paper cannot be loaded.

Brother MFC 8500
When I fax, the paper cannot be loaded to scan, the machine is just keeping running but the paper can't go through. I think one of the roller is wear out. I have another same model broken machine. I hope I can change some parts to this one.
By the way, my broken fax machine problem is: when pluged the power, it clicks like crazy, change drum/toner does not help. Is there a fast fix? I want make one machine work from these two machines.
Thank you very much for help.

    Dear frcs68,

    Thank you very much. However, the pictures you attached are too small to read. Could you please send to my email? richard@parcusa.com.

The machine clicks when you plug in the power is the gear porblem, most likely the gear is broken.
the one that does not pickup paper is the roller.
you can change the roller form the licker to this one.

hope that helps.

My MFC 8500 brother fax machine reports poor line condition when i try to use it with Magic Jack. Is there a solution?


You might try a better/faster internet connection or a faster computer to run it off of. VOIP phones have troubles handling faxes for this very reason.

My fax machine keeps saying there is a paper jam.


look on the bottom of your drum unit. there is a sensor opening that might have a tiny piece of paper in it, not allowing the sensor flag to reset. if thats not it, closely inspect behind rear door.

Brother MFC 8500 receives faxes and does nothing else


Check to make sure that the PC Fax Function is turned off. I noticed after I connected the 8500 to my PC and installed the software, I too could no longer receive faxes and it was corrected after I turned this PC Fax function off.

The function is located by:

  1. Press the MENU button.
  2. Select Option 2.
  3. Select Option 1.
  4. Select Option 8 (PC Fax) and turn that function OFF.
Hope this helps!

Fax


Do not use a fax machine. It can only fax to one location. Instead, use a computer with a fax modem and a software tool such as WinFax to do your mass-faxing.

Brother mfc 8500 clicking noises


If you open the cover and remove the toner/drum unit, you will see (on the left side as you remove) a small hole with two triangle teeth.
on either side of this hole are two small phillips head screws. this is the problem we had with our clicking noise. As the machine tries to turn the toner/drum, the innards of the toner are becoming harder to turn. So the part of the fax machine that fits in the hole end up stripping the teeth in that hole. If you have an old toner cartridge, you can remove the gearing from it (where the small phillips head screws are) and use it to replace the gearing on the newer cartridge. Or go buy a new toner cartridge.
