Question about Brother MFC 9600 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

9600 just beeps when I plug it in

When I plug my MFC 9600 in to power (no USB or phone connections), I get a sound like a phone ring out of the right side of it. The keys and LCD are both dead. Sounds like a low-level memory error or something. Any ideas?

    No go on the * 2 8 6 4, and no keys seem stuck. Is there a CMOS battery I can pull to force a ram reset? I'm happy to open the machine up if there's any reason to think it'll help.

You could try ram clear, but I think you need to replace main p.c.b. ram clear is menu * 2 8 6 4 (must be done supa quick, practice till you do it rapid) then 01 start, but you might have trouble without keypad being operational, no easy fix, also check that no buttons are stuck down.

Hi, the handset is not registered with base, to register please follow this process:
1. On handset press Menu/OK.
2. Press cursor up or down to choose "Register HS", then press Menu/OK.
3. Press Menu, 0, 6 on the control panel of base unit (MFP)

You should hear one long beep when the handset is registered correctly. If not (three short beeps) repeat steps from 2 to 4.

My 9600 just prints pages and pages of numbers and symbols when I send anything to print

Sounds to me like you are using an incorrect printer driver, or corrupted settings. Please disconnect the printer USB or LPT cable the under control panel >>Printers , uninstall your printers. Surf to the brother website and download a new driver for your printer and Operating system version Vista / XP ect. then install the new driver software and reconnect the printer. Kind of a pain, but it will fix it. Take care

When I plug the printer into the phone jack the house phone goes dead. The phone line is an ATT Ring Master, Distinctive ring is on on the printer

Are you sure you're plugging into the phone jack on the printer? The network cable jack will hold a phone jack.

The network cable jack is (from the front of the machine) on the left side, right above the USB port. The phone lines are in back, top center. The incoming line should go into the jack labeled 'Line', which I think is the one on the right when you're looking at them.

How to change fax speed from14.4 to 9600

The machine does this automatically on connection. It negotiates a reliable connection speed with the recipient machine and then transmits data. If in encounters an error repeatedly it will negotiate the speed down even further until the data can be sent successfully. However the following menu setup option may help

Main MenuFaxSetup SendOverseas ModeOn will change the speed down to 9600 max and negotiate downwards if required.

My mfc 9600 shows machine error 76 can you explain the fault

That tells you either the wires to the fuser are un-plugged, or the fuser is burned out. Most likely you need a new fuser.

Brother MFC 9600 won't pull paper from tray

There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.
