Re: Brother LC-51

I have a brother LC51 and when I try to fax, it rings but once the receiving fax picks up, I get a busy signal. Also, it will not receive faxes. Any Ideas. Thank You in advance for any suggestion.

How to fax a 2 sided document using the Brother LC61

LC 61 is the product number of the ink cartridges, not the machine.
Some fax machines can automatically flip and scan both sides of the page. It will be a setting in the Sending options available when you insert the pages to be sent.
Otherwise, you'll just have to copy the back sides first (You can use your fax as a copier.), mix your front and back sides in order, and send the whole stack. Give your new pages a few minutes to dry so they feed better when stacked.

How do I change the toner?

The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

My brother fax machine - only receives black pages

do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.

- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).

Hope this will put your Brother on the track

Having trouble receiving faxes, takes several times of someone sending to me to receive.

First thing to check is the condition of the phone line, if the machine has a handset make a phone call from the handset, is the line clear? Is there any static or Echos on the line?
Is the machine on a shared line with computers or an answering machine?
Call the Fax machine from a phone, is the line clear? did the machine generate its handshake burst? Did anything else try to answer the line?
Check the phone cable input, it should be going onto the LINE jack on the back of the machine.
