    MY FAX STATES POOR LINE CONDITION OR BUSY NO RESPONSE. WE CANNOT RECEIVE NOR SEND OUT ANY FAXES. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT TO DO OR PROVIDE ME WITH A NUMBER OF SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP?

  • Ray M. May 11, 2010

    does it ever say "machine error"? if so, i would venture to say its probably your laser unit. if you can provide any other info, it may help. if you try to print an internal report form the control panel, does the display ever change or indicate anything else?

It may need to have the drum unit reseated. Lift it slightly, pull it towards you then reinsert it till it clicks in.

Be sure to turn off the power and unplug the power cord before cleaning the machine.


  • The power cannot be turned off while the machine is sending or receiving a fax, or when the received fax or unsent fax are stored in the machine's memory. Make sure if the machine completed sending or receiving all the faxes before disconnecting the power cord.



  • The machine cannot send or receive faxes when the power is turned off.



  • If you unplug the power cord, all the faxes stored in the machine's memory will be deleted.


    Print the necessary faxes or save them to the memory card/USB flash drive before unplugging the power cord.


  1. Open the Document Tray.

Its giving me a pls open cover offline screen and it wont send any faxes i might be stupid this maybe is normal or simple but when the machine is warming it gives out a wicked screeching noise


Hi Fax machines are one of the oldest ways to send document information over a telephone line. Before e-mail became the most popular, and more efficient way to send documents, the fax machine was king. With time, fax machines have become sophisticated machines capable of many functions. No longer found only as a stand-alone machine, fax machines are included in copiers and printers. Faxing can even be done through computer software to a receiving fax machine or printer. So with such a complex machine there are several things that could go wrong. This article teaches you some basic troubleshooting steps.
    Fax Quality
  1. If the faxes you are receiving are too dark or light, or ruined by streaks and splotches, play around with the darkness and density settings on your machine. Send a few test faxes until the quality looks good on your end. If the faxes continue to come out poorly, the problem probably lies on the sender's end. If you are the sender, and your documents are coming out badly on the other end, try cleaning the sensors of your machine with a damp cloth.

Hello, I have a Brother Fax 560 (Plain Paper Fax). I am having difficulty receiving faxes. It is not transmitting on the receiving end. What is the problem?


Hi Despite the increase in texting, email, Facebook and Twitter, we still hang on to our fax machines. They are perfect for sending copies of original documents despite document jams, buying ink or special paper, maintaining a phone line--we love 'em. Basic problems like paper misfeeds can be troubleshooted through the use of some basic steps.
Check the Message
  • Check the messages on the display of your Brother fax machinemag-glass_10x10.gif. The messages will be pretty self-explanatory such as "Insert Doc, Again" or "Please Supply Paper." "Insert Doc. Again" means that that the documents weren't placed on the feeder correctly; just follow the instructions and try again. A message like "Please Supply Paper" will simply mean you need to replenish the paper. "Memory Overflow" is probably the most cryptic. It just means that the memory capacity was exceeded and it has stopped recording. Press "Enter" to register the documents in memory and to complete the operation.
  • Misfeeds
  • Clearing an original's misfeed by pushing down on the release lever to open the front panel. Remove the failed original and close the panel. To clear recording paper that's gotten jammed in the paperfeed, open the turn guide and remove the paper. To clear paper from the transport unit, which is in the top, open the cover, remove the drum and toner. Lift the guide and remove the paper by pulling upwards. Paper can get stuck in what is called the Fixing Unit. Open the top cover. Again, remove the drum and toner. Open the Fixing Unit cover and remove the paper by pulling it back.

    Jammed paper


    There are 3 places to check for jammed paper.

    Turn off the fax machine, then remove the tray and open the back cover, and open the front cover to remove the drum and toner (cartridge) and look inside machine.

    After you find the jammed paper put the cartridge and tray back in machine and close all the covers.

    Error message should go away.

    Mfc-7220 Back Cover Open


    This one made me crazy, but I finally figured it out. Turn the machine around so that you are facing the back. Open the back cover. Pull down the second smaller roller cover inside the machine. If you look closely at the second smaller cover, on the right hand side (closer the the inside of the machine), is a very thin round piece of plastic that is only half the length of the smaller cover. There are 2 thin plastic tabs attached to either end of this round piece of plastic. Gently shift this over so that the 2 plastic tabs can now go into the space provided for them. I had to move mine over only 1/4 inch.

    which cover are you opening? You must pull open the bottom cover not the one under the keyboard. It's the bottom front cover not the top front cover.
