Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

1 Answer

PRINTING ONLINE I cannot receive faxes and the screen says PRINTING ONLINE. Sometimes unplugging the device for a few seconds and plugging it right back in will enable a few pages of sent faxes to print, but I know there are many more that are trying to come through. How do I clear the memory, provided that is what is needed to be done?

Unplug the power cord from the back of the machine for 30 seconds. Put your finger on the stop key first and then re plug the machine, hold the stop key until the time and date return to the LCD. Do not worry about losing any faxes the machine can be powered off up to four days without losing faxes in memory.

My company lexmark X642e all in one machine was faxing fine. I unplugged the fax line and plugged into another fax outlet plug and it would not work so I plugged back into the original fax line outlet and...


Make sure you plugged it back into the right port on the printer itself. The one I have actually has two different phone line plug-in ports - one is for the FAX line that connects to the wall. The other is so you can attach a separte phone as an extention to talk on. Good luck. Also, after it is plugged back into the wall, did you power down, wait 30 seconds and then power back on? Sometimes these things need to recognize at start up whether or not they are connected to other devices, etc. Good luck.

Display says "printing online" but it is not connected to a PC


unplug machine, press and hold down the "stop/exit" key while pluggung back in. continue to hold the button down for 5 secs, then release. if machine returns to the regular date/time display, you should be alright. if not, then you'll have to call brother or an authorized service center. this is usually caused by a fax stuck in memory, which this procedure should clear.

good luck,

Won't receive or send


Try hitting Menu * 2864 (it should say maintenance) then 91 then 99

This will reset the fax machine without erasing your settings. It should clear it up. If it doesn't work after a few tries, you have to hit 0 instead of 91 and that will reset the entire fax machine to factory defaults.

Printer not printing


Try unplugging it or pulling the power brick out of the back, wait a few seconds, plug it back in, and then turn it on. It might have something stuck in its memory.
