Call your phone company and have them check the line. Other than that, try a different fax. Still have problems? You need a new fax machine. Sorry.

Try calling the fax machine from your mobile and see if it picks up or if anything shows up on the screen of the fax machine. Is it possible that you have plugged the fax machine into the wrong telephone line? Try sending a fax to your mobile phone and see that the number is correct.

Cleaning the Scanner
Before cleaning, unplug the power cord for safety. Clean the white roller and the glass
strip under the roller with isopropyl alcohol on a lint-free cloth. You'll need to lift the
two release levers to release the white roller; be sure to lock them in place when you're
through.
During cleaning, I recommend you unplug the power cord for safety.

We can send faxes but we can not receive faxes. The fax machine that sends the fax tell it that our line is busy. Is that a machine problem or a phone line problem?


Problem lies in your Receive Mode setting. If you don't have a dedicated phone line for the fax machine, you need to set it up for either Manual where you answer every call or Fax/Tel whereby the Fax machine determines if the incoming call is a fax or phone call. Instructions per Intellifax 4100 Manual.

Select a Receive Mode
Choose the mode that best suits your needs by pressing the Mode button
repeatedly until the FAX and FAX/TEL lights show the setting you want to use.
Manual
You must answer every call yourself.
The Brother machine must be started manually
to receive faxes.
Fax
For use with a dedicated fax line.
Every call is answered as a fax.
Fax/Tel
For receiving fax and voice calls on one line.
The FAX answers every call and receives a fax or
double rings for you to pick up a voice call.
TAD
For use with an answering device.
The TAD answers every call and stores voice messages.
Fax messages are printed.

Error code 634 on Panafax UF-770


The receiving fax machine is turned off or not functioning. Try calling your cell phone.

Do you have a DSL phone line?

Receivers complain that the fax is light/unreadable


More than likely (since the problem is with sending and copying only) the mirrors inside the fax machine need cleaning. However, depending on what type of fax machine this is, this could be a pretty involved job. If you are pretty comfortable with taking covers off, you might try it, but if its a pretty expensive fax machine, I would call a professional.
hope this helps!!!

Can't send out fax


the number you called does not answer or busy-you may have reached a number not connected to fax or it is connected and not activated in receiving mode-check the number and call again.
if you have a message "out of memory"there is no enough memory available to send your fax.press stop/exit print the faxes stored in the memory to delete them then try again.

Can't receive fax but can send


Call your cell phone from the fax machine and check the caller ID to make sure that it is the correct number for your fax machine. Next, call the fax machine from you cell phone, and make sure the fax machine rings. Problems like these are almost always a phone line issue, not the machine.
