Question about Brother IntelliFAX 770 Plain Paper Thermal Fax

1 Answer

Check paper sorry, that was a mistake. I was not rating your answer to my first question, but the website's failure to deliver an answer to my follow up to which I got no response regarding HOW to clean the paper sensor. If you know how, I will appreciate that info. Thank you! Roger

    Thank you. I already took it to a repair shop I found via customer service. They showed me how to remove the cover and get to the rollers and clean them. Seeing it done now and your helpful note hopefully enables me to do it myself next time (if there is, it's not been cleaned since I got it 6+ years ago) if it doesn't wear out by then. Thanks very much for your replies and helpful suggestions.

Normally the paper sensor is a leaf switch which gets operated by weight of paper being pulled in the paper movement path.Since this is a plainpaper fax u must be using A4/legal size paper sheets.Check the paper path visually to find the paper sensor .If its a switch u need to clean the contacts with WD40 or similiar switch cleaning fluid.
Other chance is an optical reflective sensor maybe used in which case you may need to just clean the upper surface which rides below the paper.
Hope this info helps.

I just put a new cartridge in, and I'm trying to print from memory. However, the machine keeps telling me to put a new cartridge in. It doesn't recognize that I replaced it.

I want to shut off answering machine


Use the Reception Mode button to set appropriate answering mode - press it repeatedly until a small arrow on the display will point to the desired option:

"TAD" - is the one you are using now, when the answering machine picks up the calls.

"TEL" - is the setting when no automatic pickup occurs, you always have to pick up the call and either talk (if there's a person on the other side), or press START to receive a fax (when you hear the fax beeps on the other side).

"FAX" - is the setting when after four rings the fax will pick the call up automatically (no answering machine). If you pick up the call manually after 1-2-3 rings (before the automatic pickup) you can either talk or START fax reception.

It's good to check from time to time if the reception mode is as you want it, it's easy to change it by mistake.

Good luck and come back with a testimonial if helped :)

Can not receive faxes


On the front of your machine, you will see a button that says "In/Out". I bet someone hit that by mistake, turning off auto-answer.
