    I have pressed every key but still comes up with wrong operation on panel when only the numbers are pressed. Therefore we can not fax or fax from the computer. All other buttons are working fine.

When a Brother MFC-8820D won't feed documents


I found this problem on a Brother MFC 8820D, but it may also apply to it's sister models: MFC 8420, DCP 8020, DCP 8025D, and DCP 8025DN.
Symptom: When you insert a document into the feeder to scan, fax, or copy, it recognizes it, but when you touch the Start key, it barely twitches, then says Check Original, as if it had jammed. You can pull the document out, touch Stop, and try again as often as you want, but it won't feed.
In my machine it turned out to be just a glitch in the memory. It cleared up with a Memory Clear operation:
You need to enter the Maintenance Mode. Here's the easy way on the MFC 8820D; other models may have different keyboards:
  • Turn power off.
  • Press and hold the Menu button.
  • Keep holding Menu down while turning the power on.
  • The machine appears to start normally. Keep holding the Menu button down until the words Please Wait disappear. Then release.
The word MAINTENANCE should appear on the display, while all lights flash in unison.

Maintenance Mode allows you to commit all kinds of crimes against your machine, all by entering just two little digits. Don't mess around - just clear your memory and get out. If you start to enter the wrong number, touch Stop, then enter the correct number.
The code for clearing your machine's memory is 91. That's it. You don't touch Start or Set or anything else - just the two digits. The 91 code initializes the EEPROM, but leaves your phone directory and your own name and number intact.
It will take a few seconds to clear everything, then return to MAINTENANCE. You have two ways to get out of Maintenance Mode: you can touch 99, or you can turn the machine off, then on again. Either way, it will go through it's entire warm-up routine. When it's done it should be fine again.

A similar problem can occur if a gear falls off one of the document feed roller shafts under the rear top cover. That's a different problem altogether.

Can I connect Brother MFC 9180 to MacBook Pro?


Use a usb cable or connect through a wireless connection if MFC has such a capability.

Brother printer mfc 9180 Blobs on page at certain intervals


The blobs are probably dried toner on the drum. The solution is to use a soft piece of cloth and rub the blobs off the drum through the gap at the front of the drum unit. The drum can be rotated by turning the gear cog on the side, then once the residue has been removed from the drum and it is clean, the blobs should have disappeared. I wouldn't use any solution on the drum, just gentle rubbing should suffice.

Reads "machine error af"


There is something wrong with the document feeder. Check if there are no pieces of paper stuck somewhere, and that any sensors are not stuck (sensors are usually small plastic pieces, that are lifted up when a sheet of paper moves below it).

I have a brother mfc 9180 and the error message keeps coming up replace the drum. I have done this How do I reset it


your new drum should have had a plastic "starter sheet" installed just level with the exit hole. this sheet resets the counter, and should not be removed before fitting the new drum. The sheet will be automatically ejected when you have fitted new drum. If you still have this sheet it can be refitted to the drum, then reinstall the drum. Works for me ! MFC 9180

So here you go:

2# If you have the info (e.g. 0004 -> Check by help of brother hotline because I am not sure what code you need for GB!!!)
press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up (tel.index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 4. You will see the dutch eeprom language code. Press the 4 numbers given to you by brother hotline. You should see the 4 digits. Press start bk copy to confirm. machine will return to maintenance.
press 9 then 9 to leave the mode. machine will come up again with english language ;-)

BEWARE: IF YOU PRESS A WRONG DIGIT CODE THE MACHINE WILL BE MALFUNCTION AND CANT BE FIXED ANYMORE!
