Question about Brother MFC-8220 Fax

1 Answer

All of a sudden one day my fax screen turned orange and shows black blocks where the numbers normally would be. It won't send faxes now because I can't see the numbers on the screen and it sometime won't even make a noise when I type in numbers. What can I do to fix it?

CAN T RECIEVE A FAX FOR SOME NUMBERS BUT CAN SEND THEM ONE WHY


I've seen this many times before, when a customer / account gets a new fax machine, or is using a different fax machine. All the other faxes go through without a hitch, except for these. If fax machines become a couple generations apart / 10 years, they won'
t communicate sufficiently enough to make the fax hand shake and the Fax fails to go through.

BLOCKED CALLS


If you subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, you can block
specific fax numbers so the device does not print faxes received from those numbers.
When an incoming fax call is received, the device compares the number to the list of
junk fax numbers to determine if the call should be blocked. If the number matches a
number in the blocked fax numbers list, the fax is not printed.
Set the junk fax mode
By default, Block Junk Fax mode is turned On. If you do not subscribe to a caller ID
service through your phone provider, or do not want to use this feature, you can turn
off this setting.
To set the junk fax mode
▲ Some models have a Block Junk Fax button. Depending on the model you have,
do one of the following:
Block Junk Fax button: Press the Junk Fax Blocker button, select the Block
Junk Fax option, and then select On or Off.
Color display menu: Press Setup, select Basic Fax Menu, select Junk Fax
Blocker Setup, select Block Junk Fax, and then select On or Off.
Add numbers to the junk fax list
There are two ways to add a number to your junk list. You can select numbers from
your caller ID history, or you can enter new numbers. The numbers in your junk list are
blocked if Block Junk Fax mode is set to On.

Receiving a fax


Faxes fail intermittently or with only one fax number
  • If static is present on the phone line, fax communication may fail. Have the phone line checked and serviced by the telephone company (or have the other party check their line). Phone line quality is the most common reason for intermittent fax failures. Some older locations and buildings have inadequate phone system wiring.
  • If you are trying to send a color fax and it fails, try sending the same machine a black and white fax. Normally the fax will detect that the other fax is not color capable and will offer you the option to send the fax as black and white but this might not always be the case. Do not send color faxes unless you know the other fax machine is capable of receiving color faxes.
  • Check the phone cable from the wall jack to the fax. It should not be coiled or longer than necessary. Coiling the cable can cause cross talk or echo on the line. Signal strength and quality can be lost with long cables.
  • Make sure the phone cable routing (and any cables not plugged into the same jack but sharing the same line) is not near any electrical appliances (electric motors, fans, kitchen appliances, or televisions). Many of these devices do not have sufficient electrical shielding and can induce electro-magnetic force (EMF) onto the phone line. Computers are usually shielded sufficiently and do not cause this problem.
  • Do not use a call-waiting service on the same line connected to the fax machine. The click sound caused by an incoming call can cause the fax to fail.
  • You can block certain faxes on some models. Verify that the telephone number of the sending fax is not blocked in the faxing software. This is usually located in the Fax History.
