Hey there,

You may have to change the dialling mode from tone to pulse or vice versa, (probably the former rather than the latter):
1. Press Function/Set, 1,5
2. Press < or > to select Tone or Pulse and press Function/Set.
3. Press Stop to exit.

Or you may have to set your area code:
1. Press Function/Set, 0, 2.
2.Use the dial pad to enter you area code and press Function/Set.
3. Press Stop to exit.

Easy Receive:
When you use this feature, you don't have to press Start when you answer a fax call and hear calling beeps. Just hold the handset and wait a few seconds.When you see RECEIVE on the fax screen or when you hear 'chirps' throught the handset of an extension phone connected to another wall jack, just replace the handset, and your machine does the rest. Selecting 'ON' allows the fax machine to receive fax calls automatically, even if you lift the handset of an extension or external phone. Selecting SEMI lets the machine receive the call only if you've answered it at the fax machine. Selecting OFF means you'll have to activate the fax machine yourself, by pressing Start or by pressing * 5 1 if you are not at your machine.
If you've set the feature to ON, but your fax machine doesn't automatically connect a fax call when you lift an external or extension phone handset, press the Fax Receive code * 5 1. At the fax machine, lift the handset and press Start.
1. Press Function/Set, 2, 3.
2. Press < or > to select ON, SEMI or OFF and press Function/Set.
3. Press Stop to exit.

For faxes that you think are still in the memory:
1. Press Function/Set, 8, 4.
2. Press Start.
3. Press Stop.

For manual sending of faxes, pick up the handset, wait for dial tone, then enter the fax number, wait for the Fax tone, press Start, and hangup.
For Automatic, just place the original paper (face down!) in the ADF and enter the fax number and press Start. If you do this, it will redial automatically up to 3 times at 5 minute intervals, if the line was busy..

If you think that maybe the memory is full due to scheduled jobs building up,and thus not leaving enough memory to send or receive, then you can cancel them by doing:
1. Press Function/Set, 4. Any waiting jobs appear on the display. If there are no jobs waiting, the screen displays NO JOB WAITING.
2. If you have more than 2 jobs waiting, press < or > to select the job you want to cancel and press Function/Set.
3. Press 1 to cancel, or 2 to exit without cancelling.
4. Press Stop to exit.

That's enough options for you to be going on with I guess :)

Good Luck and Season's Greetings :)

Laura, you get the necessary tools, get access and remove the old parts and replace with new ones. Make sense?

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?

Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle

When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??

Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?
