Question about Canon LaserClass LC 8500 Plain Paper Fax

1 Answer

Can't receive faxes.

My fax machine worked a few days ago, now we can't receive faxes. We don't have a manual, so getting anything to work has been a miracle. It is a used machine, but works if you know how to run it. I have checked all the lines that are connected to it, someone faxed out yesterday, and we got a confirmation sheet, but don't know if that one was received or not. Please help me.

Our Brother intellifax 2800 won't receive some faxes


Not entirely positive but it looks like you need to enable "polling" on your machine. I think it's a way to ensure they don't send out personal medical info to a wrong number by mistake. If polling is enabled, they've already determined that your machine is expecting a call from theirs.
To enable polling on your machine:
  1. Press Menu/Set 217
  2. Use Up/down arrow to turn on polling
  3. Enter the fax number you're polling
  4. Press Fax Start to dial that number
  5. Press Menu/Set
I hope this works for you. All the best!

Fax machine won't answer and pickup. I have to manually pick up the receiver and press start. This just started a few days ago.


You probably have it in the fax/tel or TAD mode. Press the butoon on the top right side of the keyboard marked "mode" until the light above it is on "fax" only. This mode (fax/tel) is for phones/faxes hooked to an answering machine. The "fax" mode puts in into the direct answer mode as a fax machine.

No settings you could have changed would keep it from "sending"...."receiving", yes. If you are sure it is plugged into the proper jack on the machine (line), and the phone line has a dial tone, you're problem is more serious

Brother MFC-7840W fax will not work


Plug a regular phone into the wall jack and listen for a dial tone.

Phone cord should be connected to the LINE port of the fax.

Do you have DSL?

Unplug power cord for 10 seconds.
