    when the machine was moved you need to make sure that the new line you are using for the fax is set up as a fax line....A easy way to do this is to ring your fax number and see if you get a fax tone..if you dont get a fax tone the line is not set up to send and receive faxs.....

Ensure that you have the line cord pluged into the line socket and not the Tel socket on the rear of the machine.

We have the Brother Intellifax 4100E. It was working fine up until last week. Then it started not receiving faxes. We can copy, and send faxes, and receive the confirmation. I have checked the mode button...


Try calling the fax machine from your mobile and see if it picks up or if anything shows up on the screen of the fax machine. Is it possible that you have plugged the fax machine into the wrong telephone line? Try sending a fax to your mobile phone and see that the number is correct.

Our fax machine keeps saying "busy/no signal" even when we know the machine we're trying to send to isn't busy. Please give us some suggestions as to how to correct this problem. Brother...


Verify the connectivity (phone line) first by pluging a working telephone in the wall jack, than test the cable from the wall jack to the fax, you could install a Y to plug a working telephone with the fax on the same line to spy on what is happening when the fax is engaging a connection.

Hope this helps!

When dialing number it is giving a "wrong number" signal


As you said, the set up is either trying to dial a "9" or other number to access an outside line before dialing your destination number. You will need to get into the menu and delete that command. After that, you should be able to dial out.
Remember to have the fax set to "FAX" not "TELEPHONE" to send and receive automatically.

Fax issues - Brother 1020e


Sounds like your phone cord is plugged into the "tel" or "phone" port on the back of the fax. It should be plugged into the "line" port.

I can't send faxes, the screen says telephone. It


You may need to dial a prefix prior to dialing the phone number you're trying to fax. It could be as simple as putting a number "1" prior to dialing the number.

Key pad on brother 1020e fax mc seems to be locked when you press copy for ex it just beeps 3 times


When the Brother machines beep three times while pressing any button on the front panel, this means there is a button stuck. Try pressing all buttons over and over to unstick button. This should help. Please rate my help if this works. If you need anything else, save my user name and ask me anytime. Thanks!
