SOURCE: Sleep

You should be able to send and recieve faxs in the sleep mode. You need to reset the machine, pull out the plug, hold down the menue key while you plug the machine in. When maintanence comes up in the display enter 01 and wait. Whwn maintanence comes up again press 99. DO NOT PRESS ANY OTHER NUMBERS OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE MACHINE BEYOND REPAIR. Your fax is now reset and completley empty, you will have to put in your name etc and sleep mode will be set to "0" minutes

SOURCE: "Receiving Sleep" on Brother Fax 4100

The sleep mode is only a power save mode. You may not have the machine in the correct fax receive mode. If the machine is on a line by itself it needs to be set to fax only, if line is shared with a telephone it needs to be in fax/telephone, if you share the machine with an answering machine it needs to be in TAD mode, and so forth. Each time you press the MODE key it will change the receive mode. Most people hit this key by mistake and change the MODE and the unit will not pick up calls. Press the MODE key until you are in the correct mode. To make sure the machine will print, press reports and then the 1, this will print a help list. If the help list prints you know that the machine works. Then check to make sure the machine is in the correct fax receive mode.

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?


    Setting the Sleep Mode reduces power consumption while the machine is idle.

    You can choose how long the machine is idle (from 00 to 99 minutes) before it drops into sleep mode.

    The timer automatically resets itself after the machine
    receives a fax or PC data, or makes a copy. The default setting is 5 minutes.

    1 Press Menu, 1, 8.
    2 Use the Dial pad to enter the length of
    time the machine is idle before it drops
    into sleep mode (00 to 99 minutes), and then press Set.
    3 Press Stop/Exit.

    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.

    Make sure it is set to autorecieve and not manual recieve, not too sure off the top of my head where in the menus you go to switch off sleep mode but if you print out a "Menu Map" this will show you every part of the menu and which to select to change it Hope this helps Cops
