There is nowhere I can find whether I should switch on the Machine 24hr a day x 7 days a week. Or shall I swtich it off after-office-hours? Any effect on the life-span of the machine?


In a business environment most fax machines are left on 24/7......who wants to miss an order coming in because your fax was OFF. However, many fax machines can be programmed to go into a "sleep mode"...this would be in the evening when the office is closed...you still want to be able to recieve fax's if any come in..but you don't need the machine ON "fully" ready to print. Another-words, the machine is in a sleep/half power mode( because no-one is in the office to use it )..BUT if a fax comes in then the machine can still recieve it, then it "wakes-up" fully..prints out the recieved pages, and then goes back to sleep again. The details on how to program this function will be in your operators manual IF the feature is available on your model.
The benifits of programming a machine this way are pretty obvious...savings on Hydro, extended machine life ( due to machine going to sleep.) and yet you still dont miss any calls.
Pretty good hey.!!

Brother 8360p has faxes in memory but will not print them. All the faxes ar going into the memory now. It has paper and toner, check by making a copy. the menu 2 5 4 fax command doesn't do anything,...


I have seen a few Brother faxes do this. I fixed them by turning off the power, holding down the clear/stop button and keep holding it down while you turn the power back on. Keep holding it for a few seconds then release. This will clear what ever is in the memory that is locking up the memory print. Note: you will lose any received faxes in memory by using this procedure.
This may help you restore your fax to a operation condition.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.


The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!

I cannot recieve faxes


There seems to be an internal fault, either with the receive relay or another board component. Can you receive a telephone call? If so, I would say it's a component failure and should have a repair shop look at it. With this kind of problem, the repair facility will use bench testing equipment to prove it. then exchange the faulty board. If it's not under warranty, it will be expensive.

Can not recieve Faxes


These machines goe into sleep mode automaticly and should exit when they detect a ring.

You MAY have a problem with your main board.

First make sure your phone cord is plugged into the correct port. There are two, line and ext. It must be plugged into line.

You can try a factory reset if that doesn't work. Unplug unit, hold menu button, plug back in and wait for lights to blink and display to read Maintenance.

Press 0 and 1

Now press 99

Now try sending to the machine again.

If this doesn't work, you likely need the unit serviced.

Sleep


You should be able to send and recieve faxs in the sleep mode. You need to reset the machine, pull out the plug, hold down the menue key while you plug the machine in. When maintanence comes up in the display enter 01 and wait. Whwn maintanence comes up again press 99. DO NOT PRESS ANY OTHER NUMBERS OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE MACHINE BEYOND REPAIR. Your fax is now reset and completley empty, you will have to put in your name etc and sleep mode will be set to "0" minutes
