No Response To First Email

I sent you an emai on January 18, 2009 requesting infroamtion on my brother MFC685CW machine. I purchased this machithne from Office Max after purchasing 6 or 7 other fax/copiers/scanners from Office Depot that just lasted a short period of time. After great frustration I finally went to Office Max and was told by the store manager that my needs would be best served by purchsing teh Brother MFC 685CW and he also stated that this was a statte of the art machine. I have owned this machine approximatley 4 months. I paid almost $ 400 for this puschase and thsi included my 10 percent discount as a professor.
I have sent a total of 2 faxes and attempted to scan some documents into my computer and the fax machine has simply quit working. I expected that there would be a book included in the box on how to trouble shoot but there was not. I also attempted to ''google'' on the internet a ''How to fix the machine'' but to no avail. Please send me a directions book to Dr. Stan Hardie 7565 Monongahela Ave Keystone Heights Florida 32656 or as an attachment to
If you need to also call me you may reach me on my personal cell number at 904-210-0286. PLEASE NOTE THAT I CAN NOT LOCATE THE CORRECT MODEL OF BROTHER MFC 685CW.
Kindest Regards,
Dr. Stan Hardie

Brother MFC-5840CN unable to scan

From Brother Customer Service email:

You can try the following reset - it will most of the settings back to the default options.

Unplug power cord to the machine.
Press and hold down Menu.
Plug power cord back in.
Let go if menu when fax/scan/copy flash.

You may see either "maintenance" or "machine error xx" on the screen.

Type stop/exit, 9, 1.
The machine should show "param init" or similar to show that the reset is being done.

It will then go back to or machine error.

Type stop/exit, 9, 9.

This should take the machine out of maintenance mode and back to normal.

If the error is still present the machine will require an engineer to resolve the issue.

Copier problem

I recently purchased a two pack of lc-51bk cartridges. I had this problem with one of them. I noticed that that cartridge is physically different than the one I removed. There's a little beige tab that was missing. What's interesting is that the other cartridge in the pack had this tab, and everything worked perfectly. The cartridge seemed to be defective.

Drum replacement but not printing

Your almost there. Now you need to replace the 'Transfer Roller'. The transfer roller transfers the image from the drum onto the paper. If this roller is worn out all you'll get is blank pages printing out. Ray CompuGuy44
