Re: "Offline"

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.

Keeps telling me it is off line-how can I correct it so I can print

First check on the device and printer under control panel if the status of your printer is offline or ready. If it is offline check your usb cable if properly connected and if ready state then if you send print job set to offline try to reinstall the driver. hopefully it will help you.

Machine reads document jam,checked machine seems ok,cannot sent fax.

Hi there!
The error message that you are getting means there's a jammed paper inside the machine particularly in the feeder. This may also appear if the panel is not closed securely. Try to open the control panel and look for any pieces of jammed paper or debris. Closed the front cover or the control panel, it should display the regular screen date/time. Once you have the regular screen load the document on the feeder, the display should change and should ask you to enter the fax number.
Hope this helps!
Please rate if it worked, Thanks

Back cover open message although cover is closed

Open the top and back covers. If you see any jammed paper or
other item, gently pull it out, then close the covers. If the error message
remains, open and close the covers again. If the FAX/MFC cannot reset
itself and return to the date and time prompt, it will display MACHINE
ERROR XX. Please call Brother Customer Service
and tell them the Machine Error number at:

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.

Says paper jam, but none jammed

It is probably jammed in the back door of the fax. Check that and see if you find anything.
