Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

Does not scan pages until it makes connection

The same brand of fax machine used to scan all the pages you'd feed it as you dialed a fax number, but this one doesn't scan any pages until after it dials, makes connection, etc. -- so slow! Is there a code or setting to change this?

Yes, the solution is that you are direct sending the faxes instead of scanning into memory which will start and complete the scan of all the pages as it begins dialing and transmitting. there should be a key on the control panel for memory or memory transmission, select it and your done.

MFC-490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer: how to send a fax...


Most of these will send a fax without even using the PC. Just connect a phone line, place the document in the proper position, usuallu print side up on newer models, and push the fax button, it should prompt you for the number. Once dialed,, the paper will feed into the scanner portion of the multi, and you will see it on the menu bar saying sending page 1, 2 etc, after if is done sending, it will dial and connect, yu should hear the typical noise a fax makes. then it will say fax sent or end or something similar, that's it, try sending one to a friend to make sure it's working. Now some simpler machines require you to open the scanner portion and lay the paper down in the glass manually, mine does it both ways. In that case just skip the feeding part, and dial wait for it to scan and send.

I need to know how to send a fax from a brother MFC-295cn all-in-one printer


Hello Frank,

Sending a fax is fairly simple.

1. Make sure you have a telephone line connecting to the LINE jack on the side of the MFC-295CN

2. Check if you have a dial tone by pressing the "hook" button on the machine while the line is free.

3. Place a page face down on the flatbed scanner or in the document feeder on the top of the machine.

*Note: If you are using the document feeder, once the page is placed in, you should see "enter fax #" on the LCD

4. Enter the fax number the same way you would dial a regular phone number.

5. Press "Start"

*Note: If you are using the flatbed option, after the sheet is scanned, you will be asked if you want to scan a second page. For additionnal pages, press 1, to end scanning and start faxing, press 2

6. If the fax goes through properly you will see "completed" on the LCD

I CAN`T SEND A FAX


Fax machines are sorta like printers, sorta like scanners, and sorta like dial up modems all wrapped into one expensive box.
1. First thing to make sure of is that you are hooked to a phone line. most fax machines have a phone handset that you can make calls from. Call someone and make sure that works. If So, you are able to connect to phone networks, and should have no trouble sending or receiving data. If you have a dead line or no sound, check the line and check the power. (its always the easy stuff that is overlooked, just check it and make sure).
2. If this fax machine has computer interface, (usb port or parallel cable port), see if you can scan with it. Drop a document into the scan area and see if the computer can scan an image from the scanner. If the scanner works, you can scan images into the fax machine to be sent to the fax number. (If your fax machine does not have a scan to computer feature, skip this.)
3. if your fax machine has a print from pc feature, try to print a document to it from your computer. If you can print, then the printer works, and you can receive faxes. (if your fax machine does not have a pc printing feature, skip this)
4. Here is how a typical fax machine works. You place the document or image into the scanner feed area. You press a big button that usually says "fax" and then, a screen pops up saying to dial the number. You dial the number and press SEND. once you press Send, the machine will scan the document, dial the number and sing a little dial up modem song awaiting a response from the receiving machine. the receiving machine acknowledges the fax, and the singing is no longer audible (but it continues because the modem song is actually data transmission/reception). after about 20-60 seconds, the fax completes and the call ends. As for the particular model you have, the functions should be about the same, though the buttons and arrangements may be different. FYI, you can send a fax straight from the PC too, if you have a dial-up fax/modem card.

Office jet all in one printer 4215


If you are using speed dial to dial the fax number, the HP Officejet
might be dialing too fast or too soon. To solve this problem, try one
of the following:
Try manually dialing the fax number from the HP Officejet front
panel, or from an attached phone. For information, see send a
fax using monitor dialing
on page 43 or send a fax manually
from a telephone
on page 43.
Re-create the speed dial setting and insert some pauses. For
information, see create individual speed-dial entries on
page 56.
If your telephone line has a PBX system, make sure you are dialing
the number for an outside line before dialing the fax number.
The receiving fax machine might be having problems. To check this,
try calling the fax number from a telephone and listen for fax tones.
If you cannot hear fax tones, the receiving fax might not be turned
on or connected, or a voice mail service could be interfering with
the recipient’s phone line.

Hi, Remote Fax Error being displayed


NOTE this option may vary to printer try USING OPTIONS TO SET CHANGES


To resolve the problem, try the steps below. After each step, try to send a fax again.

1. As some fax machines are not capable of receiving color faxes, legal size faxes, or faxes at 200x200 dpi resolution, make sure you are sending an A4 or letter size (not legal size) page at standard resolution:
* Press the Black button for a black-and-white fax. Press the Quality button to check the selected resolution.
2. Make sure the All-In-One has enough memory free when you want to save the scanned documents into memory before sending the fax. Please refer to the following document: Click here to link to the relevant document.
Note: The scanned documents will only be saved in the memory before the whole fax is sent if the Scan Before Dial option is turned on. (This is the factory default.) Up to 50 black-and-white fax pages can be stored in memory at standard resolution when there are no pending faxes in the queue.
3. Turn off the Scan Before Dial option by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
1. Press the Fax button, then press Options untill u see ADVANCED FAX mode.
2. Press Select.
3. Press Options nine times until SCAN BEFORE DIAL appears on the LCD display.
4. Change the setting from Yes to No using the + (right arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
Note: The Scan Before Dial option controls whether a document is scanned before a call is dialed. This parameter only applies to a mono fax that uses either 200x100 or 200x200 resolution. Higher resolution mono faxes and all color faxes are scanned after the call is dialed and the receiving machine's capabilities are known.
4. Lower the fax transmission speed 9600 bps, as some older fax machines are not capable of receiving a fax at a high speed. To do so:
1. Press the Fax button, then press Options untill u see ADVANCED FAX.
2. Press Select.
3. Press Options untill u see until MAX SEND SPEED appears on the LCD display.
4. Change it to 9600 BPS using the - (left arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
5. Turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
1. Press the Fax button, then press untill u see to get to ADVANCED FAX.
2. Press Select.
3. Press untill u see ERROR CORRECTION appears on the LCD display.
4. Change the setting from On to Off using the + (right arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
