Your machine has a rear door that allows you to print out the back when you do not want the document to have to curl through the entire machine; IE transparencies or labels. Just clear the machine of any objects or jams and close the rear door and the machine will automatically print out the front again.

Get an 'unable to print 6f' error for my MFC-8370 machine.


https://help.brother-usa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/145079/~/unable-to-print-6f


https://help.brother-usa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/145079/~/unable-to-print-6f


"Unable to Print 6F"
The message "Unable to Print 6F" will appear on the display for one of the following reasons:
i. A foreign object, such as a paper clip or ripped piece of paper, is stuck in the machine;
ii. Mechanical malfunction.
To attempt to clear the error, continue to step 1.
1. Using both hands, use the finger holds on each side of the machine to life the scanner cover into the open position.
- Do you see the scanner cover support arm located on the left side of the machine?
- If yes, go to step 2.
- If no, verify you have opened the scanner cover (as in the image above). If the document cover was opened, you won't see the scanner cover support arm. Close the document cover and go back to step 1 to open the scanner cover.
2. Carefully check the left (2) and right (3) hand corners and the center inside the machine and remove any paper scraps that may be jammed.
3. Using your hand, move the print head from left to right, checking carefully for any paper scraps stuck under the print head. Remove any if found.
If the print head is in the right-hand corner, press and hold down the for at least 5 seconds until the print head moves to the middle. This will allow you to check the right corner inside the machine for any paper scraps.
4. Leave the scanner cover open and turn the machine around so you are looking at the back of the machine.
5. Open the Jam Clear Cover (1) on the back of the machine.

6. Check inside for any foreign objects or jammed paper. Remove it found.
7. Close the Jam Clear Cover, then turn the machine back around to the front.
8. Lift the flat-bed scanner cover to release the lock (1), then gently push the scanner cover support down (2) and close the scanner cover (3) using both hands.
- If "Unable to Print 6F" still on the display, go to step 10.
- If "Unable to Print 6F" has cleared, go to step 11.
10. Unplug the machine from the power outlet for approximately one-minute, then plug it back in.
- If "Unable to Print 6F" still on the display, go to step 12.
- If "Unable to Print 6F" has cleared, go to step 11.
11. Print a Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS).
a. Press on the Touchscreen.
b. Press Test Print.
c. Press Print Quality.
d. Press OK. A PQCS will print.
- If the PQCS print successfully, your machine is working properly. The issue has been resolved.
- If the PQCS doesn't print because "Unable to Print 6F" reappears and you have not cycled the power, go back to step 10.
- If the PQCS doesn't print because "Unable to Print 6F" reappears and you have cycled the power, continue to step 12.
12. Your machine will require service. Any faxes received while the error message is on the display will automatically go into the machine's memory due to the product's inability to print. If there are faxes in memory, you can transfer them to another fax machine so they are not lost.
- If you don't want to transfer faxes, go to Warranty and Service Options.
- If you want to confirm and transfer received faxes in memory, go to step 13.
13. Transferring stored faxes to another machine.
To transfer data from your fax machine to another fax machine, you must have already programmed the Station ID in your machine prior to getting the "Unable to Print 6F" error message. If you did not already have your Station ID programmed into the machine before getting the error, you will not be able to transfer faxes in memory. Continue to Warranty and Service Options.
a. Press to temporarily interrupt the error message.
b. Press on the Touchscreen.
c. Press All Settings.
d. Press ? or ? to display Service. Press Service.
e. Press Data Transfer.
f. Press Fax Transfer.
- If "No Data" appears there are no faxes in memory to transfer. Press , then continue to Warranty and Service Options.
- If there are faxes in memory, the display will prompt to enter a fax number. Enter the fax number including the 1 plus the area code, then go to step g.
Warranty and Service Options.

Can you retreive a sent fax from memory


The fax element of the Printer contains a memory feature for storing faxes in the event of a printing problem. This feature is useful for protecting yourself against missing faxes if your printer runs out of paper. In order to retrieve missed faxes, the feature must be switched on when the faxes arrive. You can reprint faxes stored in the device's memory from the main control panel. You should allow approximately 5 minutes for this task, or longer if many faxes are stored in the memory.
Instructions:
Load paper in the input tray.

Press the "Setup" button on the front of the printer.

Select "Tools," then "Reprint Faxes From Memory."

Press "Cancel" to stop printing. Faxes are printed in reverse order; the most recent fax is the last to print.

Can I reprint a fax that I just received?


If you want to reprint a fax because the print cartridge was empty or if the fax was printed on the wrong type of media, you can try to reprint it. The amount of memory that is available determines the actual number of faxes that are stored for reprinting. ... These faxes are stored continuously.
here's how if you have this accessibility..
Press "Setup" on the control panel of your fax machine. Most fax machines will have an LED display panel on the front of the machine. The panel will usually include on screen prompts and help options. Some fax machines signal the user if they have faxes stored in memory and prompt the user to "print faxes" or "clear memory," but you need to make sure that you don't accidentally clear the memory or you will lose all saved faxes.
Use the arrow keys or number pad as directed by screen prompts to select "Fax Setup Menu" and then press the "OK" or "Start" key.
Enter the security code, PIN, or user authorization code if required. The security code or PIN protects sensitive information and prevents unauthorized use of the fax machine memory. If you haven't set it up you don't have it.
Navigate to "Receive" or "Print Faxes in Memory" and then press the "OK" or "Start" key as directed by the on-screen prompt. The last fax stored in the machine's memory should begin to print.
Repeat the above steps for each fax in memory if you need a different one.
Hope this helps and isn't clear as mud!
Happy new year.
