Brother mfc-8300 phone connection problem

When we use the phone part of the machine the connection goes "dead". If I wiggle the phone cord in the port where it is connected to the machine, it will then work. I have tried replacing the cord as well as using a different port, but that does not work. Any suggestions?

Make sure the line from the wall is plugged into the port marked"line" and not "phone" If this does not solve it then it sounds like there is a loose solder joint on the connector inside the machine.

I need to replace the ADF Document Support piece on my Brother MFC-8220 fax machine. Do you know where I can purchase one?

I finally located a phone numbe for the Brother-USA Sales Dept. (888-615-9119). The part was $4 plus shipping and handling ($10 total). It took a bit of doing for them to identify the part and determine the part number. I had to fax them a machine parts diagram from the MFC-8220 manual. Go figure.

Brother MFC-7840W fax will not work

Plug a regular phone into the wall jack and listen for a dial tone.

Phone cord should be connected to the LINE port of the fax.

Do you have DSL?

Unplug power cord for 10 seconds.

Fax 575

The black curly cord goes from the phone receiver (handset) to the first jack on the left side of the fax (the one closest to the handset that's marked with a phone symbol). The flat grey cord is the phone cord. It connects the wall jack to the fax machine's third jack (the one closest to the back of the machine that's marked with the word "LINE").
