Hi there!

For you to send a fax with the Brother Fax 775 you can try these steps:

1. First make sure that you have a dial tone by lifting the handset or just by pressing the hook button. Once you have verified you have a dial tone press the hook button again to return to the main screen or hang up the handset. LCD should display the date & time

If you don't have a dial tone make sure that the telephone line cord is connected on the fax machine's Line jack. If you don't have a dial tone still connect it to another working outlet. If you don't have a dial tone still connect a working telephone on the wall jack to see if you'll get a dial tone. If you get a dial tone on the regular phone then problem is either with the line cord or the fax machine.

2. Once you have the date & time on the LCD screen, Load the document that you want to send on the automatic document feeder which is directly above the LCD screen.

3. The LCD screen should change from the date/time to "Enter Fax No. & Press Start" Once you got this screen dial the fax number and then press Start.

Hope this helps. Rate if it works.

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.

Try calling your fax machine from a cell phone. If the fax doesen't answer, or if the line is busy, the phone line may be bad. Also check that the phone line to the fax is plugged into the receptical marked LINE, not PHONE. The PHONE receptical is to connect a telephone to the fax machine. If it still does not answer, try going into the fax menu and go to RECEIVE settngs. Try changing each setting, then call the fax with the cell to see if it answers. Write down each setting before you change it, so you can set it back if changing it does not solve the problem.
