P3015 beep

Here are some possible reasons why your printer is beeping:
1. Your printer is connected to a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). When the printer goes through the printing cycle it uses a massive amount of electricity. During those few seconds of power usage, the UPS will beep indicating that it will not be able to sustain that power output for any period of time.

How to fix: Move your printer to another outlet and don't connect it to a UPS
2. You have an MFP (multi-function printer) that is attempting to fax again and again. When sending a fax, it's typical that the printer makes noises (dialing, connecting, etc). One of these noises is a fax response beep.
How to fix: Check your printers menu and turn off/down the fax volume
3. Some printers with an LCD menu and keypad make noise when keys are pressed or the printer encounters an alarm of some type. This can become annoying when typing keys for a phone number or by changing a menu setting.
How to fix: Check the menu settings for the printer and turn off/down the sound that's occuring. As an example, the HP LaserJet MFP series printers have the following sounds.
  • The alarm sound that the printer makes when it requires attention, such as when the all-in-one
    door is open.
  • The beeps that are emitted when you press the all-in-one control-panel buttons.
  • The phone line sounds for outgoing faxes.
  • The ring volume for incoming faxes.
As an example, change alarm volume by following these steps (using a 305X series printer)
1. Press Menu
2. Use the < or the > button to select System setup, and then press the green checkmark button
3. Use the < or the > button to select Volume settings, and then press green checkmark button
4. Press the green checkmark button to select Alarm volume
5. Use the < or the > button to select Off, Soft, Medium, or Loud
6. Press the green checkmark button to save your selection

How to erase memory in Brother 8690 MFC - it keeps printing unwanted faxes which are stored in the memory! It is junk mail and 20 pages long and I want to cancel it. When I press "Stop" and pull the power...

Try to press and hold Job Cancel button until a message Job Cancel (All) appears. Press OK to confirm.
If not working, the next is what I found in user manual:
Remove paper from the printer to stop it printing. Turn it on, if not.
Set Remote Access Code, if not already, pressing Menu, 2, 5, 2. Enter three digits - 1, 2, 3 - for example and press OK.
Dial your fax number from a telephone or another fax machine using touch tone. When your machine answers, immediately enter your Remote Access Code (these 3 digits followed by *). If you hear one long beep, machine is saying that you still have faxes in memory. Then you hear two short beeps, that mean the machine waits your command. Use the dial pad to press 9 6 3.
If you hear one long beep, fax messages have been erased from the memory.

Samsung microwave displays press 1-4...

The SE indicates a short in the keypad membrane, but to cure this! the whole keypad control board should be changed if effort to resolve is decided, I would also suggest checking the pricing.

After making my post, I went to the official Brothers website for the 4100 FAQs and "Operating Instructions." Here's what I found. Set your 4100 set to the "Fax/Tel" mode. Press "Menu", then the number 2 (Fax), then number 1(Set-up Receive), then number 1 again (Ring Delay). Use right arrow key to increase. Once increased, press the "Set" key. You'll see the message "Accepted." Now press the "Stop" key to exit "Menu." This will now give you up to 4 rings before the fax auto answers. Inorder to send a signal by phone to remote start the fax just follow the instructions I copied directly from Brothers instructions for the 4100: If you answer the call on an extension phone (this is any phone plug into a phone jack on the same line) and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or just silence (manual fax), press *51(remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the Brother machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up. I don't have anyone that can send me a fax right now to test it out. I'll have to try it in the morning. Hope this works for you.

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!

The Start Button can become stuck on these very easily. If it is stuck, then press it down and it should jump back.
