Question about Brother IntelliFax-2820 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Sleep mode Fax in sleep mode won't let me do anything, fax out, receive or use as a copier. Every time I press any button it just keeps bleeping. Even if I turn it off then back on it stays in the same sleep mode. Won't let me go into menu or press any button without bleeping at me and doing nothing.

MFC-7840w printer, how do i take it off sleep mode?


  • The control panel features a series of buttons as well as an LED "Status" screen.

  • Press the "MENU" button. Go to INITIAL SETUP, select "FAX" select "RECEIVE MODE" change to F/T
  • If you are using the Brother on a line by itself, set it to "Fax." If you are using the Brother on a line that also shares a telephone, set it to "Fax/Telephone." If you are using the Brother IntelliFax along with ananswering machine, set it to "TAD." Once you set your IntelliFax to the appropriate mode, the unit will leave "Sleep" mode and be ready for use.
  • Select "GENERAL SETUP" go to "ECOLOGY" and #2 is SLEEP TIME = adjust to 60 sec. This keeps the machine from becoming idle/sleep mode for a longer period.

    The fax continually registers as being in "sleep" mode. Says it's in "Sleep" mode all day even when it is receiving and or sending out. How do I correct that?

    Sleep mode will not disable, even when send button pushed, paper put in for fax or receiver taken off hook. Sleep mode set to default 5 minutes.


    Press Menu 1,8
    then set minutes to 00
    press Stop/Exit

    This should disable Sleep mode. Please post back with any questions or to rate this solution. Thank you very much.

    Our Brother Intellifax 3800 will go to sleep and ignore attempts to send or receive faxes. It will take a docment into memory and go to sleep and not send it or the phone will ring with an incoming fax and...


    i don't have the owners manual handy, but i'm quite sure you can disable the sleep mode by pressing a couples of buttons on control panel. that procedure is in your owners manual on the same page as setting sleep time.

    I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.


    The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!

    BROTHER FAX MACHINE 2800


    Your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode function reduces power consumption while the machine is idle. You can adjust how long your Brother machine is idle (between 00 and 99 minutes) before Sleep Mode is initiated. Please note that the default setting is 00 minutes, and the timer automatically resets itself after the Brother machine receives a fax,receives data from your PC, or makes a copy. To adjust your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode setting, please follow these steps:

    1. Press MENU/SET, 1 (General Setup), 7 (Sleep Mode).

    2. Use the dial pad to enter the amount of time the fax machine is idle before Sleep Mode is initiated (00 to 99 minutes).

    3. Press the MENU/SET key to confirm your choice.

    4. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.

    NOTE: If you frequently print, copy, or fax, set the idle time long
    enough to insure that you will not always have to wait for the Brother machine to warm up.

    Able to receive fax but cant send


    sleep mode is just a status of the machine when it is in idle mode.you cannot turn this off however you can delay the time before the unit goes into a sleep mode.it has nothing to do when you are sending out faxes.so here are a few things you need to check when sending a fax (1)dial tone by pressing hook/hold button (2) insert the doc into the adf, make sure it will change to "enter fax # and start,or copy press copy (3) dial the number (4) wait for fax tones of the receiving unit before you press start. now if you can hear an operator on the line,that has to be verified with your phone company since brother machine does not restrict incoming and outgoing faxes UNLESS that is restricted from your phone line.

    Is tel line going into correct socket of fax? (Line not Ext.)

     

    Is Fax set to auto answer or manual?

     

    If you pick up line or press speaker button can you hear other fax sending if so press start and hang up you should receive fax, and you have just proven that machine is in manual receive mode!

     

    I think you will find it  will wake from sleep automaticly if setup correctly.
