I am using a printer of brother mfc and i can not understand how to fax from it

The default setting on Brother MFC printer is Fax. Meaning you will usually see the Fax Button lit with a green light. (If the fax button is not lit, just press that button to get it lit.). Put the sheet of paper you want faxed with the side you want sent face down. Now press the OK button. The screen will ask you to enter the Fax number. Key in the Fax number. Press start. The printer will start scanning that page. Once the first page is scanned it will give you 2 options. You can press 1, if you have more pages to send to the same Fax number. or you can press 2. This will tell the printer(Fax) it is just a 1 page document and the machine starts dialing. Wait for the fax completed message. Please make sure that the machine is connected to a working phone line before you start.

Please tell me how to change my Brother Fax 1020 Plus to receive faxes only. At the present it is receiving both fax and phone calls.

for dedicated fax use you have to press "Mode" button repeatedly until on the right side of the display it appears "FAX". Now you should have "F/T" on the display and you must press "Mode" button three times.

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!

Brother MFC 8500 receives faxes and does nothing else

Check to make sure that the PC Fax Function is turned off. I noticed after I connected the 8500 to my PC and installed the software, I too could no longer receive faxes and it was corrected after I turned this PC Fax function off.

The function is located by:

  1. Press the MENU button.
  2. Select Option 2.
  3. Select Option 1.
  4. Select Option 8 (PC Fax) and turn that function OFF.
Hope this helps!
