Question about Brother MFC 7840W Printer
Just bought a new MFC 7840. not yet connected to network just using it to scan and fax. started it and faxed couple docs. next day the lights went off so the printer went off and came back on but no display. tried evrything but cant see anything on the display just green blank background. Any help appreciated.
SOURCE: Brother MFC 420 CN
the brother printer is not a good brand i also have a brother mfc 3220cn and it gives the same problem, what you have to is unplug the machine and let it stand for about 2 days take out the cartridges and clean the printing with air replace back them and plug in.that should remedy your problem.i urge on you never to buy brother printers.if you buy them get a bottle of phensic along with it.good luck my brother.

The solution, finally, was very simple: To disconnect the mains voltage, for several days, from BROTHER MFC-215 .
After that, I was successful to receive and print the incoming faxes.
Thank you very much for your willing to help.

Depending on your location the line coulod well be poor quality for a sensitive fax. Any spurious sounds on a fax line will cause it to fault.
May I suggest you try the fax on the mainline first before assuming the unit is at fault.
Length of line from point a to b can also reduce the efficiency of signal. It may sound ok to the ear, but resistance may be the factor in reducing the level of the tone that the fax requires to hear and then activate send or receive.It reports poor line condition and even poor memory because it keeps loading to send.
If it does it on the mainline as well then I would be considering a technical call for help. There may be a fault in the unit.
please rwte my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
