My fax seems to be stuck. I can not send any documents. I can not switch over to copy either. If I press any speed dial keys, try to use the number pad on right side, or try to switch to copy, I get three beeps and nothing else happens. HELP!
I spoke to someone at Brother. She told me to "massage the keys in a circular motion". Feeling very foolish I did this. Sure enough when I got to the number "7" it was stuck. The massaging released the key and my fax was working again.

Check the baud rate of your transmissions. Slow them down to the slowest setting and send a test fax to a helpful person. Slowly increase the baud rate (communication data speed) and send the fax test. When the fax doesn't show up on the receive site, then step one baud rate speed back, and save the setting.
It could also be your fax that is faulty, or even the receive sites fax, also being faulty.
To test your copy-head, insert a document into your loading section of the fax and press copy. If the copy prints out fine, then you know the head is reading correctly.
It is also possible that the receiver fax (the other end) has a printhead failure.
You can send a fax to up to 142 fax numbers, using any combination of dialing methods:
- One-touch Speed Dialing (up to 32 destinations)
Press the desired One-Touch Speed dial button(s)
- Coded Speed Dialing (up to 100 destinations)
Press [Coded Dial] > enter the 2 digit code (00-99) using the numeric buttons and be sure to press [Coded Dial] before each code
- Regular dialing and redialing (10 destinations)
Enter the number using the numeric buttons or [Redial/Pause] and be sure to press [Set] after each entry with the numeric keys
After all the numbers are listed, press [Start]. The machine will scan in the document (memory) and then begin sending it to the destinations in numerical order, starting with One-Touch, then Coded and finally the numbers dials with the numeric keys.
You can also create a group if you frequently send faxes to the same group of people by first saving them as One-Touch and then adding them to a new group.
1 Load the document face up into the Document Tray. 2 Dial the receiving party's fax number. 3 Press [Start/Copy]. The fax begins sending. Note If an error occurs during sending, the fax beeps intermittently for a few seconds and an error message appears on the LCD. If this happens, correct the problem and then press [Stop], then try sending the document again. The fax automatically redials if the receiving party does not answer or if the line is busy.
Cover Sheet You can have the fax machine generate a cover sheet and send it as the last page of your fax transmission. The cover sheet includes the date and time, the receiver's name and number if a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number is used, the sender's name and number, and the total number of pages. ? Your name and number must be programmed in order for them to appear on the cover sheet (see page 49). ? To have the recipient's name appear, you must dial using a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number with the name programmed. 1 Load the document(s). • SEND READY will appear in the display. • Press RESOLUTION and/or CONTRAST to set the resolution and contrast if needed. Press Cover Sheet. (Flip up the Rapid Key overlay if it is down.) • The display will briefly show COVER SHEET MODE ENTERED and then revert to SEND READY. • To cancel the cover sheet selection, press STOP. 3 Dial the receiving party and transmit the fax. If desired, you can set your fax to automatically send a cover sheet with every transmission (you do not have to press COVER SHEET each time). This is accomplished by setting Option Setting 10 (Auto Cover Sheet) to YES as explained on page 125.
You are wanting to use the Broadcast feature of your fax machine. According to page 65 of the users manual, you load the documents, press Broadcast, and enter the receiving numbers by using the rapid keys, speed dial keys, group keys, or individual telephone numbers (maximum of 20) pressing Start/Enter between each of the entries (except for the rapid keys and speed dial keys). Set your contrast and resolution (if desired) then press Start/Enter twice to being.

You are right about that. The messages are indeed sitting in memory.Here's the procedure to print them out. Step1: Press the memory reference button in the one touch speed dial panel Step 2:Press the search keys(arrow keys under the one touch dialing panel)until the option "print document" is highlighted and then press SET. Step 3:Press the search keys again to select the transaction ID of the document you wish to print and then press SET. Step 4:Press # to print the whole document or * if you wish to print only the first page.
From manual: Insert document; press Scan & Fax button; dial number; press Start/Copy. All pages will be scanned, number will be dialed, and scan will be transmitted. If Memory Full displays, repeat procedure without using Scan & Fax button.
