How do I fix my fax machine so that it does it's job. By that I mean how can I make it print and fax?
First .is the machine in an error state on the display?
2nd. You MUST use the line lead and adaptor that the machine came with for the tel line. Others just wont work and you may get a dial tone but it wont receive as it wont detect ringing current.
As for not printing, does it make any sounds when you send it a print job or print a report from the keypad? Did it work with its previous owner? To reset the unit you have to enter the following on the keypad within 3 seconds to get it into the maintenance mode. Press *2864* that's star2864star. When it says "Maintenance" then enter 01, it will then go back to maintenance. Now press 55 to reset the scanner. When back in maintenance again the press 02, when back in maintenance again press 99 to exit it. All should work now and it will be as it was when it came out of its box. If this does not work then it has a circuit board fault and wont be worth repairing. Its a very very good machine. As an ex brother engineer I can say it was their best machine.
