Question about Brother IntelliFAX 2800 Laser Fax

Sleeps to often

The fax remains asleep. It will act as though it isn't when we try to use it, but the minute you step away - it "goes back to sleep".

The fax continually registers as being in "sleep" mode. Says it's in "Sleep" mode all day even when it is receiving and or sending out. How do I correct that?


Setting the Sleep Mode reduces power consumption while the machine is idle.

You can choose how long the machine is idle (from 00 to 99 minutes) before it drops into sleep mode.

The timer automatically resets itself after the machine
receives a fax or PC data, or makes a copy. The default setting is 5 minutes.

1 Press Menu, 1, 8.
2 Use the Dial pad to enter the length of
time the machine is idle before it drops
into sleep mode (00 to 99 minutes), and then press Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.

We have a Brother Intellifax 4100e, business class laserfax, superg3 fax machine in our office. When the fax machine goes into sleep mode, we can't get it to come out of sleep mode unless we unplug it and...


Try changing the sleep mode settings. Sometimes it's set too long or too short. You can try the perimeter reset as well. The instructions I have for that is as follows:

hit the menu button and numbers *2864 (star before the four numbers)
then hit 91(set) wait a few seconds for the maintenance screen to return
then hit 99(set) when it beeps saying completed that could fix your problem.

Hope this helps.

Sleep mode will not disable, even when send button pushed, paper put in for fax or receiver taken off hook. Sleep mode set to default 5 minutes.


Press Menu 1,8
then set minutes to 00
press Stop/Exit

This should disable Sleep mode. Please post back with any questions or to rate this solution. Thank you very much.

Have you tried to unplug it, and leave it out for a few minutes, then repower, this clears the volitile memory.

UNABLE TO REMOVE SLEEP MODE


you can't take it off of sleep mode. the only thing you can do is set it to go into sleep mode anywhere between 0 to 99 minutes. you do that by pressing "menu, 1, and 8." there, you can input how long you want sleep mode. no way of completely disabling. i'm thinking that somehow, it must have gotten set to 0 minutes.

Fax mach wont receive from other faxes


I'm sorry....Do I have this right? You say that another fax machine was hooked up on the same phone line and you have the same problem with that one. So the problem is related to that phone jack?
It sounds to me like there must be just the slightest amount of interference in the jack, interfering with the fax. They are far more sensitive than just a telephone. You could try a phone line filter.

BROTHER FAX MACHINE 2800


Your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode function reduces power consumption while the machine is idle. You can adjust how long your Brother machine is idle (between 00 and 99 minutes) before Sleep Mode is initiated. Please note that the default setting is 00 minutes, and the timer automatically resets itself after the Brother machine receives a fax,receives data from your PC, or makes a copy. To adjust your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode setting, please follow these steps:

1. Press MENU/SET, 1 (General Setup), 7 (Sleep Mode).

2. Use the dial pad to enter the amount of time the fax machine is idle before Sleep Mode is initiated (00 to 99 minutes).

3. Press the MENU/SET key to confirm your choice.

4. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.

NOTE: If you frequently print, copy, or fax, set the idle time long
enough to insure that you will not always have to wait for the Brother machine to warm up.

How do you turn on a Xerox 7232 copier that is asleep on power save?


You should just be able to press any key. You can go into the customer programs and set the sleep mode to 4 hours before going into sleep mode.
If the machine has been idle for more than 4 hours, it will physically turn the machine off, I will look up the adjustment and post it back to you here in a couple of minutes.
