Error comm 0001

Generally this error(Error 0001) is observed while receiving Fax. The Error Code arises when sender not using G3 Fax Machine.So it is a communication error.

What does comm error 20 01 mean on my brother 2820 mean? how do I fix it?

This means that your Brother machine experienced a communications error when sending or receiving a FAX. This is generally caused by either interference on the line, phone line connection or another device on the line.
Try resending the documents and see if the message no longer appears.

If the message still appears, there may be a problem with the way the Brother machine is connected or you may have a bad telephone line. Disconnect any other equipment on the telephone line, i.e. answering machine, modem, extra telephones, switching devices, adapters, etc. Make sure the telephone line is connected directly from the jack (socket) on the Brother machine labeled "Line" to the telephone wall jack (socket).
Try resending again. If the transmission is successful, the problem was created by the connection of the Brother machine and the other devices on the line. Reconnect the other pieces of equipment one at a time to see which is causing the problem. If the error continues to appear on the report, try connecting the Brother machine to a different telephone line or have the line checked by the telephone company.

Brother FAX 8360P comm.error

It could be line noise on the phone.., which allows phones to work ok, but causes problems with faxes. See this document from the brother website concerning comm.error:

Would recommend having the phone company run a line check to make sure the phone line is clean of interference !

Comm. code 400

the 400 code is some cases is due to incorrect transmission levels, try turning of memory tx and send directly, or could try adsl filter on the line if needed, there are things that techs will be able to adjust if necessary

Comm 503

That is "CS of modem is not able to turn ON during training." It could be a bad SC circuit board, but usually that's a bad line or connection. Get your phone lines checked out by your phone company.
If that doesn't do it, then you'll have to replace the board in the fax machine.

Fax sending problem

It sounds like you have a few problems. First, the comm error usually means there was a problem communicating with the other fax. This maybe caused by a phone line issue, or a bad connection. You will have to replace you ink but that does not have anything to do with your sending issues. As far as the pages getting stuck, the separation pad under the top cover should be cleaned. If you lift up the cover where you load your pages to be sent, and look in there(on the backside of the keyboard)you will see a flat square rubber piece. Clean it thoroughly with a rag and some rubbing alcohol. Also clean the rubber rollers as well. Good luck John
