    The Multi Function Link is what enables it to connect to PC. The lable on the front says it can and there's a connection in the back that's labeled PC. might be thinking of a different model or what that the MultiFunction Link is not enabled.

    I figured out the PC connection on fax machine looks like ethernet, so I got one of those and I'm trying that next. If you can find out if it has software that would be good. I'm thinking not because it's older or maybe...that's why it would have software because it is old. I'm rambling.

    This intellifax 770 is MultiFunction Link Ready which would allow the Intellifax 770 to become a scanner, copier, fax that can connect to a PC. You were probably thinking of one where there is no multifunctionality, just a fax perhaps.

    Either way, I just discovered the connection at the back of fax appears to be an ethernet connection. So my third try is an ethernet cord. Hope this works : )

    Then why does it say it can and have a PC connection? That makes no sense whatsoever

Something is blocking part of your scanner light, or scanner light may be bad. Check if the scanner light comes on, and check inside the original feeder and machine for a scrap of paper blocking the scanner light to the imaging drum.

Fax installation

There is no installation CD for this machine. The machine sends, receives and copies. The machine will not connect to a computer and does not need a CD to perform it's functions. Years ago Brother had a 770 which is the father of 775 that connected to a computer by purchasing software and a cable(PCI-1). This software is outdated and does not work well with any of the current windows programs. Most Brother ink-jet and laser products will connect to a computer via an installation CD or down loading the drivers from None of their thermal machines will connect to a computer.
