Re: Sending and receiving faxes on legal size paper.

There should not be a problem with TX on LGL paper. If you want to configure the machine to recieve LGL on a regular basis: Press "MENU" 1-3. Then use the up/down arrows to select LGL. "MENU", "EXIT". That should do it. Good luck!

Hi. i hope you can give a suggestion with our brother intellifax 2820. Whenever printing a received fax, the machine prints out a blank page in between each received page. so, for example, we receive pg1,...

press "menu/set, 1, then 3. you should see "paper size" on display. select "letter" if thats what you are using, and press "menu/set" again, then "stop/exit" to back out. next, make sure your "fax" button below display is green, then press "menu/set, 2, 1, then 5.using your arrow keys, select "on". press "menu/set" then "stop/exit". that should do it.

Brother Intellifax-2820, will not print incoming faxes. It rings, says it's receiving data and thats it. Yes I have paper in tray. Sends and copies fine.

You need to make sure that your machine is set to "FAX" mode,not"PHONE"mode and that it is in "AUTO"receive, not "MANUAL"receive mode.

Something is blocking part of your scanner light, or scanner light may be bad. Check if the scanner light comes on, and check inside the original feeder and machine for a scrap of paper blocking the scanner light to the imaging drum.

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.
