Document to memory before sending

Brother MFC 8220, user jacked up settings, will no longer feed documents to memory before sending. It will dial and send fax one at a time but this not productive for multiple docuemnts. What and where is the setting to allow documents to scan into memory before sending via fax. Any feed back is greatly appreciated. Bruce.

Re: document to memory before sending

Here's the manual. Look at page 6-8. That tells how to turn on real-time transmission. You just need to do the same thing, except switch it to off when you get to that step.

Fax from computer

First, you will need a USB fax modem. Then you use Windows Fax & Scan program to create/forward new fax documents, or even send a file as a fax or email.

Setting up your external modem to work with an internet telephone line is simple. Simply put a 2 way splitter into the internet modem telephone jack. Plug your telephone into one input and the external fax modem into the other. Then you can even dial from your computer routine telephone calls too.

Need more explanation? Let me know.

Unable 2 send or recive fax

Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions. If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

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.

Sending fax

If you sending the fax over the memory, fax can scann doc. while dialing, or in the same time, but if you sending directly (on-hook dial) fax is sending the document while beeing reeded.

You may try to check the phone lines, browse the documents before sending,clean the original document feed rollers,...

Is there a way to program it to fax to a group of numbers at one time

You can use the "Broadcast " feature to send one fax to up to 112 numbers listed in your speed dial. To set this up:
  1. Insert the original into the ADF.
  2. Press Quick Scan/Reports. The display should show how much memory is available.
  3. Enter the One-Touch or Speed Dial numbers for the recipients you want to send to (one after the other). You can also setup a group dial number.
  4. Press Fax Start. The machine will scan the document into memory and then dial all the numbers you've entered. If any are busy it will attempt to redial.
  5. Press Stop/Exit at any time to cancel the broadcast.
If you need further instruction on how to setup group or speed dial numbers, Brother provides the user manual online.

Hope this helps!

I want to scan then send instead of scanning whilst sending

There are 2 methods of sending 1. Through memory, in which the machine scans the document then sends when all pages have been scanned. 2. In real time, in which the document is placed in the ready mode and the line monitor or handset is used to dial the number. In this case the document is not scanned until a response is heard from the other machine.
However, in the case of the memory being full, either of documents in the queue or if there are documents waiting to be printed (because of no toner or no paper) then the machine will not allow sending from memory.
