Be sure to have a noise filter on the ADSL line so the line quality is good enough to send and receive faxes.

My MFC 8500 brother fax machine reports poor line condition when i try to use it with Magic Jack. Is there a solution?


You might try a better/faster internet connection or a faster computer to run it off of. VOIP phones have troubles handling faxes for this very reason.

Brother MFC 8500 receives faxes and does nothing else


Check to make sure that the PC Fax Function is turned off. I noticed after I connected the 8500 to my PC and installed the software, I too could no longer receive faxes and it was corrected after I turned this PC Fax function off.

The function is located by:

  1. Press the MENU button.
  2. Select Option 2.
  3. Select Option 1.
  4. Select Option 8 (PC Fax) and turn that function OFF.
Hope this helps!

MFC-8500 fax operation


If there is noise on phone line machine reduces speed to enable fax to be sent. Have line check or try machine on different phone line to ensure it is a phone line problem.
