Re: Brother Intellifax 2820 fax machine

Same thing happened to ours here at work except it was the #3 that got stuck. It was idle for 3 weeks because no one took the time to see what was going on. Five seconds on Google and 20 seconds on and we have a working fax machine again.

When we attempt to dial to send a fax, all we get is beeping

Check your phone line with a regular phone. Your fax machine is not finding a dial tone.

Plug the phone line into the LINE port of your fax machine.

I have a Brother 2820 fax machine and it beeps when I press a button. It still receives faxes but that is it.

When it just beeps on keypress, but other functions not requiring your input (like receiving faxes), the problem most likely is a stuck button. Try pushing each button and wiggle it a little to have it "released". It may not even look pressed down, but one of them most likely is.

Able to receive fax but cant send

sleep mode is just a status of the machine when it is in idle cannot turn this off however you can delay the time before the unit goes into a sleep has nothing to do when you are sending out here are a few things you need to check when sending a fax (1)dial tone by pressing hook/hold button (2) insert the doc into the adf, make sure it will change to "enter fax # and start,or copy press copy (3) dial the number (4) wait for fax tones of the receiving unit before you press start. now if you can hear an operator on the line,that has to be verified with your phone company since brother machine does not restrict incoming and outgoing faxes UNLESS that is restricted from your phone line.

Sending a fax

First make sure that the fax button has been pushed and is llit...

The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.

The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.

Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.

Can't receive fax

Pick up the receiver and see if you hear a fax tone noise. If so then push the start button and hang up. Is this machine on a dedicated line or shared with the main phone number? Sometimes some people will pick up the receiver on their fax machine dial the fax number and wait for a tone before sending. If this is the case the machine can not recognize that is a ax. Make sure your machine is set for auto receive if it is on a dedicated line.
