This is commonly an issue with the Keypad PCB. We can get you pricing on parts if you want to try this as a repair. Does the machine beep 3 times when you hit the copy or scan keys?

Fax default


I found this online today:

Mode Timer

The (Brother MFC-8480 DN) machine has 3 mode keys on the control panel: Fax, Scan and Copy

You can set how much time the machine takes after the last COPY or SCAN operation to return to FAX mode. If you choose OFF, the machine will stay in the mode you last used.

1. Press MENU, 1, 1.

2. 2. Press up/down arrows to choose the amount of seconds or OFF. Press OK.

3. 3. Press STOP/EXIT. I haven't tested this yet, as the machine I'm trying to adjust is at my workplace, but maybe this answer is what we're looking for.

When I receive a fax, it prints out perfectly. When I make a copy or scan to fax/email, the page has multiple black lines running down the length of the page. I have recently replaced the drum and the...


As the fax receives and prints incoming faxes ok then the print engine is working ok. the fact that the problem arises when copying or scanning indicates the problem is with the scanner or software that controls the scanner.
First clean both scanner glasses and the white area (white reference) under the doc feeder. When you are happy all is clean, follow the following instructions:
Press menu, * 2864 within 3 seconds. the display will show "Maintenance"
now press 55. The scanner will initialise and go back to "Maintenance"
now press 99 and the machine will go back to the default screen showing date and time.
Now do a copy. if you still have the lines or its all black then you will need a new contact image sensor. If all is well then that was a good cheap repair.

Brother MFC 8220 all-in-one fax prints with a vertical line


First guess is you have a bit of dirt (often white-out from people scanning corrected paper that's not quite dry) stuck on the fax scan window. This should be described pretty well in your user manual (which you can download online from brother.com).

Its also possible that there is dirt (typically loose toner) on the laser scan window (there's a laser that shines through it to get the image pattern on the drum). That window is often along the bottom of the unit under the drum/cartridge (take the cartridge out and look). The Brother manual I've seen seems to ignore this possibility.

Print streaks DO NOT mean cartridge drum replacement in many cases !! On brother Intellifax or MFC or other laser copier/printer/fax, keep in mind that either the fax/copy scan window OR the laser scan window can get dirty. If the fax scan window is dirty, you see streaks on outgoing faxes and copies (but NOT incoming faxes). If the laser scan window is dirty, you see streaks on all prints (copies, faxes, print-from-computer).

Note also that when transporting/moving some laser copier with the toner cartridge inside, the toner can get out and make a big mess inside (including getting the laser scan window dirty). An air compressor can be usefull to blow it out. And sometimes using alcohol to clean is a BAD idea (maybe incompatible with plastic and rubber parts). A damp rag is probably fine.

Fax, Copy, Scan Buttons do not change


Sounds like switch inside operations panel has broken, there is no reset that will fix it, will need new operations panel.

the reset code on this machine is menu # 2 8 6 4 then maintence shows enter 99, the first bit must be done super quick.
