Re: how do I get back to print mode?

All you needs to do is reset the printer by;
Power off the printer
Hold the stop/reset button then press and hold power (for 5 secs)
Hold Power and release the stop/reset button
Press the stop/reset button twice
Release power button
Wait until the power button lights a steady/still green, press the stop/reset button three times with a 3 sec space between each press.
On the 3rd press the indicator should be orange.
Press the power button to set data
The press power again to shut down
and then again the restart.
This should reset the print should work.

Fax default

I found this online today:

Mode Timer

The (Brother MFC-8480 DN) machine has 3 mode keys on the control panel: Fax, Scan and Copy

You can set how much time the machine takes after the last COPY or SCAN operation to return to FAX mode. If you choose OFF, the machine will stay in the mode you last used.

1. Press MENU, 1, 1.

2. 2. Press up/down arrows to choose the amount of seconds or OFF. Press OK.

3. 3. Press STOP/EXIT. I haven't tested this yet, as the machine I'm trying to adjust is at my workplace, but maybe this answer is what we're looking for.

I have a Lexmark X8300. All was ok till recently. I can print out anything from the computer but can't use the copy feature. Also, all of the lights stay on - the copy light, fax light, scan light,...

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.

If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print again.

You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Copy mode

Is this happening when you print or when you scan? If when scaning you could have something on the scanner bed... If this is happening when you print, it could be the cartride is defective.
