Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No dial tone to fax documents with Brother Model

Help! Please!
Brother MFC-440CN Multifunction Printer has stopped emitting a dial tone to send a fax. We have exhausted all remedies in the user manual but we are unable to transmit a fax.

There were no changes made in any hardware or software,etc.It just stopped emitting a dial tone when the "hook" button is pressed. We then put new phone line connectors from the phone to the Brother unit but to no help We even unplugged the unit overnight with no result.

It states "Memory is full" but it shows there are no faxes pending or being stored or delayed. The problem appeared without warning. The unit was peiviously able to have a dial tone and send faxes with no problems

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Have a MFC-440Cn and cant get it to fax. I am using my computer to connect it too and it scans and copies as it should but it does not fax. I get an error the says NG: poor line condition/out of memory


The only thing that could stop you from sending a fax or not get a dial tone, would be the connection to the phone lines.

Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions.

If you still cannot send a fax, try another telephone wire and jack.

My fax machine will not send faxes. After a number is dialed, it will give me a report saying that there is no response/busy.
