SOURCE: Fuser Error

You can also look for dealer service which is much more reasonable.
And also access secondary parts sources such as The Parts Drop online. Precision Rollers and several other sources.
Xerox will charge you an arm and a leg. There are many other sources to repair a 580 fax.
That is a very good product.

SOURCE: Power Failure message

What is it telling you is that it was unpluged or lost power for a short period of time.
First of all just try pressing the Stop Button.
The try powering it off with the power switch. Remove the power cord for a minute then replace the plug and turn on.
That should clear it.
Anoying message, but just an indication that you lost power unexpectedly.

SOURCE: Fax machine will send out but will not receive any

The majority of the time, when you can send but not receive, it is a phone line issue and not the machine. Extremely rare does a machine send and not receive. So here goes the things to try and the reason. 1, Make sure the phone jack is in the "Line" jack and not the external phone jack. Believe it or not, that is the number one issue with sending and not receiving.
Next, plug a phone into the jack that the fax machine is plugged into and see if there is static.
You want to be sure in the fax \settings and advanced settings that the ECM mode is ON, and that Junk Fax ius turned OFF, Junk Fax being on will stop almost all fax from comming in.
Now, the phone line. Here is the explaination of why that can be the problem. When you send a fax, you manually make the connection to the line. When you press send a relay flips and connectes you to the phone line, therefore you have made pretty much a mechanical connection enabling the phone line, and therefore you can send.
Now, when you have an incoming fax, several conditions must me met to make the handshake and therefore connect and receive. These all have to be right in order to properly receive. The phone line voltage mist be high enough, the phone line current must be correct and there can not be much decibel loss over the line. You are making a signal connection, all those conditions must be right to receive a fax. Think of it like a TV remote with batteries that are almost dead, It still send out some signal, but it will not change channels or change the volumn,etc etc. Same principle. If the signal to the incoming fax is weak, chances are it will not connect.

SOURCE: Why is my fax machine saying phone off hook when

First thing to check is the condition of the phone line, if the machine has a handset make a phone call from the handset, is the line clear? Is there any static or Echos on the line?
Is the machine on a shared line with computers or an answering machine?
Call the Fax machine from a phone, is the line clear? did the machine generate its handshake burst? Did anything else try to answer the line?
Check the phone cable input, it should be going onto the LINE jack on the back of the machine.

Replace the phone line cable.
Remove the handsetn or at least unplug it.

Hope this is of some help.

Fax rec 2-3 pgs OK, then disconnects and gives Comm Error


These errors mean that the communications have failed, and can mean that the receiver at the other end has terminated the call prematurely.
If the problem occurs with the same destination, then the receiver fax may be the problem.
If the error persists try disabling ECM

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 !

How to get fax reports


Your only option is to have it print out automatically after every 32 transactions, print out after every transaction, or print out only when there was an error with the transmission.

That parameter is Comm Journal and you can get to it by going to Function 7, option 4. That should give you a fax parameter table. You want options 12 and 13. Set 13 to "1" if you want it to print out every 32 transactions. Set that to "2" if you don't.
Set 12 to 1 for Comm Journals Off, 2 for Always, and 3 for Incomplete Only (errors).
