Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs $6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
Goodluck!

If that is blank, you have a bad scanner.

if doing menu #9000*550 did not solve the problem for call service 3, it is better to call your panasonic service center.

the problem is in fuser unit. the thermistor maybe dirty or damage. careful to touch the fuser unit for it is really hot.

SOURCE: incoming fax print is to light

im not familiar with the particular model. A lot of the small brother laser fax machines will have the laser unit under the drum unit. if you take out the drum unit.. you should see a clear glass that goes across the width of the machine. it is about 1/2" X 9". There is probably toner and dust on the glass.
this will block the laser from reaching the drum. Clean the glass pretty good and this should at least help.

How do I receive faxes with the 240c


Hi,


Manual mode turns off all automatic answering functions unless you are using the Distinctive Ring feature or you are using an external answering machine on the same line as the Brother machine.


*Distinctive Ring is a function of your Brother machine that allows a person with one line to receive fax and voice calls through two different phone numbers on that one line. Brother uses the term "Distinctive Ring," but telephone companies market the service under a variety of names, such as Custom Ringing, Personalized Ring, Smart Ring, Ring Master, Ident-a-Ring, Ident-a-Call, Data Ident-A-Call, Teen Ring, SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing and BT Call Sign.
  1. Setting the Receive Mode
    1. Press Menu.
    2. Press the up or down arrow key to select Initial Setup.
    3. Press OK.
    4. Press the up or down arrow key to select Receive Mode.
    5. Press OK.
    6. Press the up or down arrow key to select Manual.
    7. Press OK.
    8. Press Stop/Exit.

Receiving Faxes in Manual Mode
  1. Lift the handset of a telephone that is on the same line as your Brother machine.
  2. When you hear the sending machine's fax tones (short beeps that occur at regular intervals), do one of the following:
    • If the telephone you answered is near your Brother machine or connected to its EXT jack(socket), press Black(Mono) Start or Color(Colour) Start.
    • If the telephone you answered is not connected to or near your Brother machine, press *51 (*91 for New Zealand) on its dial pad.
  3. Your Brother machine will produce receiving tones.
  4. Replace the telephone handset. Your Brother machine will begin to receive the fax.

< Easy Receive (Fax Detect) >
The Easy Receive (Fax Detect) feature allows you to receive faxes in Manual Mode by simply lifting the handset of a telephone that is on the same line as the Brother machine. Your Brother machine will automatically generate fax receiving tones, at which point you can replace the telephone handset and wait for your fax to be received and printed.

Your Brother machine's Easy Receive (Fax Detect) feature is turned ON by default. To adjust your Brother machine's Easy Receive (Fax Detect) setting, please follow these steps:

  1. Press Menu.
  2. Press the up or down arrow key to select Fax.
  3. Press OK.
  4. Press the up or down arrow key to select Setup Receive.
  5. Press OK.
  6. Press the up or down arrow key to select Easy Receive or Fax Detect.
  7. Press OK.
  8. Press the up or down arrow key to select On, Semi or Off. *In some brother machines, Semi may not be in the options.
    If you choose Semi, your Brother machine will only answer an incoming fax if you answer using its handset or by pressing the Hook, Hook/Hold, Hold, Speaker Phone or Tel/R key on its control panel.
  9. Press OK.
  10. Press Stop/Exit.

Note Here are a couple of points to keep in mind:
  • If Easy Receive (Fax Detect) is ON, but your Brother machine doesn't automatically answer the incoming fax when you lift the extension telephone's handset, press *51 (*91 for New Zealand).
  • If you send faxes from a computer that is on the same telephone line as the Brother machine and the Brother machine intercepts the calls, turn Easy Receive (Fax Detect) OFF.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

I recently bought fax HP2140 and a while ago I saw fax ringing and info: receiving but nothing came thru. It is important to me that I receive faxes because I bought it for business purpose. My nanny threw...


The fact that the phone was ringing and the fax answered the call doesn't necessarily mean, that it was a fax transmission; someone might have called your number and tried to talk, but hung up hearing the fax beep.
You have to ask someone with a working fax machine to try and send you something, then you will be sure whether your fax works fine or not.
If this check will prove that it's indeed your machine that has some issue, then look for any error lights or messages on the display. If there was something wrong with paper, printing head, drive or whatever, you would certainly get some error message.

1 Answer

No fax reception


Send will work on any phone lines
fax machines are often set to only answer 'secondary' ring tones, double triple or higher. When the line was repaired the phone company may have dropped the special tone off your secondary fax line number, fax will not answer without that tone.
Check in the fax answer settings, what the ring tone is, specific instruction on menu settings in your user guide,
Ring your fax line, and check the tone.
If single number fax/phone, check that the fax is set to asnwer all calls then pass on non faxes

How to receive faxes automatically


First this is a good machine, I use the same one and have my fax setup for the same thing. If you have a (TAD) Telephone Answering Device first you have to set up your phone to pick up before the fax, do this by setting the phone to pick up on three rings and the fax to pick up on four. Go to Menu/Fax/Setup Receive/Ring Delay. While there make sure Easy Receive is on. The machine itself will distinguish between regular calls and facsimiles and will display this info at the time of the call on its LCD screen, make sure you are using the line connection and not the phone connection. Hope this helped.
