Question about Brother MFC-8220 Fax

1 Answer

Orange screen and black blocks

All of a sudden one day my fax screen went orange and now only displays black blocks where it normally would display "Sleep" or numbers after you type them in. It won't send faxes now because I can't even see what numbers I'm typing in and it sometimes won't even make a noise when I punch numbers in. I tried unplugging it, but the orange screen still won't go away. What can I do to fix this?

I cannot find reset button. i cleaned inside all. i opened side cover and checked and cleaned with air blower i cannot find any piece of paper. after then switched on after initialized blinking orange


It's been a while since I worked on a Canon, but I don't remember a reset button like you're talking about. This sounds like a faulty sensor, if everything is clear of the paper path and the door is latching normally. If you have some electronics experience, you may want to consider temporarily bypassing the sensor just to validate this. Otherwise, you may want to consider paying for a service call.

Paper jam


The following is general advice that applies to removing paper jams in most printers, copiers, etc.

Switch off the printer at the wall and unplug it. Remove the paper tray from the printer. Check to see if the printer has an access door in the rear to allow you to see inside (open it). Open any other external flaps (eg. manual paper feed tray) that will allow you to see inside. Open any internal flaps or levers designed for user operation and usually indicated with a green or orange coloured tab.

Always remove jammed paper by pulling it in the direction of normal travel only. Don't try to pull it out against the direction that it entered the printer. Sometimes rollers inside the machine have a knob (usually coloured green or orange) that can be used to manually wind the page through the printer or fax. Always turn in direction of arrow indicated only.

After removing page, return all levers, flaps, doors, paper trays etc to original positions, reconnect power to the printer and test

Can't receive faxes


The problem is that some one has changed the answering method of the fax machine it writes "F/T" because the fax machine is set to FAX/TEL mode. So to make your fax machine to be on fax mode and on the screen to write " FAX " you need to press the button mode which is located under the screen exactly under the message " F/T " after you will press the button " mode " on the screen it will appear the current mode that the fax machine is set to, so you will need to press the " mode " button until on the screen will appear the message " FAX " when the message " FAX " will appear on the screen do not touch any button on the fax machine and after 2 second on the screen will return to the date and time display and again it will display on your fax machine
" FAX " and it will not display " F/T "

Fax problem


Hi Fatimo25,
The screen on your fax machine displays how the machine is set to receive calls. TEL MODE means the machine will not auto-answer incomming calls and will operate as a normal telephone device, it will still however be able to send a fax in this setting.
Place your message on the original tray and pick up the handset, dial the number and when the distant machine answers press the start key or ask for their fax machine and when you hear the high pitched fax tone press start.
There is a button on the panel that will allow you to change the reception mode of your machine to the other settings.
Your machine is of a model that doesn't come into this country so I have no manuals to forward you. You can try however to access the SHARP web site www.sharp.ae
Hope this helps you
regards
Gavin

WORKCENTRE PE220 - How do I print reports from the fax? and I want to set it up to do automatically, but I also need to look at a certain day, to see if a fax went through. Thanks


Hope this helps.

  1. Press the [Menu] button on the Control Panel until 'Reports' is displayed on the top line of the Display Screen.
  2. Press the [Left] or [Right] arrow button until one of the following reports is displayed, and then press the [Enter] button to print the report.
Report / List Description Phonebook List This list shows all of the numbers currently stored in the machine's memory as Speed Dial and Group Dial numbers.
NOTE: This list can also be printed by pressing the Phonebook button on the Control Panel.
Sent Fax Report This report shows information on recently sent faxes. System Data List This list shows the status of the user-selectable options. This list can be printed to confirm any modifications to settings that have been modified. Scheduled Job Information This list shows the documents currently stored for Delayed faxes. The list shows the starting time of the Delayed fax. Message Confirmation This report shows the fax number, the number of pages, the elapsed time of the job, the communication mode, and the communication results. You can set up your machine to automatically print the message confirmation report after each fax job. Junk Fax Number List This list shows up to 10 fax numbers specified as the junk fax numbers by using the Junk Fax Setup menu. When the Junk Fax Barrier feature is turned on, incoming faxes from those numbers will be blocked. This feature recognizes the last 6 digits of the fax number set as a remote fax machine’s ID.

Speed dials


I'm not sure if this will help because I haven't seen a 2060 control panel but most Canon fax machines use the same process. Press either "menu" or "data registration" button. (Again -I'm not sure of 2060 control panel.) Display should read "user settings" Press the "down arrow" (looks like an upside down triangle) until the display reads "tel settings" Press "set" Display reads Speed Dials Press "set" Display should give the # of the speed dial (ie. Speed Dial 01) Press "set" Display reads "tel number" Press "set" input # you want to send faxes to Press "set" Display reads "Name" Press "set" use letters on keypad to input receivers name (ie. For letter "C" press #2 three times, you may have to use the arrow keys to move the cursor for names such as BC Corp) Once name is input - you guessed it- Press "set" you will now be presented with various other send options which most people/businesses never use. You can hit stop to return to normal mode. After inputting speed dial #'s & names,you can print a list of what you have input by getting back to the "Tel registration" screen & pressing the report button. I can be reached @ bspier@carlsonsupplies.com if you need more assistance. Good Luck!!

There is a big trouble


all faxes use automatic fallback sytem for dropping the speed as well as the machines communicate on the highest common speed therefor you don't need to set the speed. Apart from the situation if your phone line is disturbed and not receiving faxes and giving communication errors.... happy faxing omnipresent
