Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4750 Plain Paper Laser Fax
Says printing online, but can't receive or send faxes.
I called Brother Customer Support and they told me to unplug the 4750e and then while holding the stop/exit button plug the fax machine back in. Worked like a charm!!

Try hitting Menu * 2864 (it should say maintenance) then 91 then 99
This will reset the fax machine without erasing your settings. It should clear it up. If it doesn't work after a few tries, you have to hit 0 instead of 91 and that will reset the entire fax machine to factory defaults.

Sounds like a glitch in the memory has left a document there, unable to print. You'll need to clear it out by going into the Maintenance Mode. Maintenance Mode is not mentioned in your user's manual, because there are several functions available that can seriously disable the machine. All you have to do to be safe is follow these instructions to get into the mode, clear the memory, then get out without messing around with other functions.
Press these keys in rapid succession:
* (the star on the dialing keypad)
Do that whole sequence in 2 seconds or less, ignoring all the beeping the machine will assault you with. It's designed to not allow some to accidentally enter Maintenance Mode; if you wait for the beeping to stop, you'll fail, left in some part of the normal menus. When you succeed, the word MAINTENANCE will appear on the display, and all the lights will flash in unison. If that doesn't happen, just touch the STOP button and try again.
Once in maintenance Mode, touch 91 on the number pad. The display will say Initializing or something like that as it clears all the documents form the memory. Your programmed phone numbers and settings will not be affected. When it finishes it will go back to MAINTENANCE. Unplug the power for a few seconds, then plug it back in. The machine should be fine and ready to use.
If Function 91 doesn't work, you should try going back into MAINTENANCE and touch 01 instead. It will clear all memory back to the point it was when you first unboxed the machine. But I think 91 will take care of everything.

unplug machine, press and hold down the "stop/exit" key while pluggung back in. continue to hold the button down for 5 secs, then release. if machine returns to the regular date/time display, you should be alright. if not, then you'll have to call brother or an authorized service center. this is usually caused by a fax stuck in memory, which this procedure should clear.
