I cannot send fax

Hi there!

For you to send a fax with the Brother Fax you can try these steps:

1. First make sure that you have a dial tone by lifting the handset or just by pressing the hook/speakerphone button. Once you have verified you have a dial tone press the hook button again to return to the main screen or hang up the handset. LCD should display the date & time

If you don't have a dial tone make sure that the telephone line cord is connected on the fax machine's Line jack. If you don't have a dial tone still, connect it to another working outlet. If you don't have a dial tone still, connect a working telephone on the wall jack to see if you'll get a dial tone. If you get a dial tone on the regular phone then problem is either with the line cord or the fax machine.

2. Once you have the date & time on the LCD screen, Load the document that you want to send on the automatic document feeder which is directly above the LCD screen.

3. The LCD screen should change from the date/time to "Enter Fax No. & Press Start" Once you got this screen dial the fax number and then press Start.

Hope this helps. Rate if it works.

I own a Emerson 6.0 phone. model number EM6113 and it is set when I dial a nimber it sounds like a rotarty phone and I want to change it to a pushbutton or tone sound when dialing.

I am not too familiar with who makes Emerson, but look around the back, some times on the bottom and there may be a physical switch for pulse/Tone. Otherwise, it is in the internal programming menu. In that case, go into the set up menu, scroll to phone settings, and there will be a pulse / tone choice there.

I have a Brother mfc 290c. My problem is it won't send faxes, it keeps saying "no response, busy" I have a duet line. I have tried every combination in the book but still can't seem to find the solutions...

If you get the "busy/no response" message it is because the fax machine does not get a response when it tries to dial out.
Make sure you have a dial tone by pressing the "hook" button. If you do not have a dial tone, make sure the phone line is connected to LINE on the machine.
If you have a dial tone, try dialing the fax number. If you hear a recording, there is a problem with the line.
One of these two possibilities is causing the problem.

Accidentally set the pulse/tone dialing feature to pulse for a Ricoh 4430L. How do I change it ?

Option setting within "Setup" menu (need access code of 2222) allows you to see advanced features not normally viewed after installation of fax machine is completed. Within these advanced features is a parameter to choose analog line setting of either tone or pulse.

HP 7680 Fax paper will not go through

Have you checked that you can get a dial tone?
Can you recieve fax's?.
If no dial tone then check that you have the telephone cord plugged into the line jack on the back of the fax machine and not the tel or ext sockets.May be a telstra problem so plug another phone into the wall socket to see if you can dial out.
Also make sure that the fax is set to pulse dialing.

Hi sythonk
1. Make sure you have a telephone cable connected the jack labelled "LINE" on your brother machine.
Go through the Menu on the LCD, Initial setup, dial tone, choose the correct dial tone PULSE or TONE.
Exit from the menu.
Pick up the handset on the fax machine, and dial your nuber to make a phone call. (To send a fax, dial the number without lifting the handset.)
Hope this will work for you. If it solved your problem, give a please rating

SF-515 does not dial anymore

Hi there try this press menu then using the arrow keys go into machine settings I think if not you are looking for line type. Once in the make sure it is set to tone.

Once you have done this come out and try if this doesn't work then the control panel maybe faulty and you could take it apart and clean the number pad keys and make sure that the buttons move freely.

If they do cleanup and put back together and check machine if it still doesn't work then the panel will more than likely need replacing.

Thanks J
