Hello, I have a Brother Fax 560 (Plain Paper Fax). I am having difficulty receiving faxes. It is not transmitting on the receiving end. What is the problem?

Hi Despite the increase in texting, email, Facebook and Twitter, we still hang on to our fax machines. They are perfect for sending copies of original documents despite document jams, buying ink or special paper, maintaining a phone line--we love 'em. Basic problems like paper misfeeds can be troubleshooted through the use of some basic steps.
Check the Message
  • Check the messages on the display of your Brother fax machinemag-glass_10x10.gif. The messages will be pretty self-explanatory such as "Insert Doc, Again" or "Please Supply Paper." "Insert Doc. Again" means that that the documents weren't placed on the feeder correctly; just follow the instructions and try again. A message like "Please Supply Paper" will simply mean you need to replenish the paper. "Memory Overflow" is probably the most cryptic. It just means that the memory capacity was exceeded and it has stopped recording. Press "Enter" to register the documents in memory and to complete the operation.
  • Misfeeds
  • Clearing an original's misfeed by pushing down on the release lever to open the front panel. Remove the failed original and close the panel. To clear recording paper that's gotten jammed in the paperfeed, open the turn guide and remove the paper. To clear paper from the transport unit, which is in the top, open the cover, remove the drum and toner. Lift the guide and remove the paper by pulling upwards. Paper can get stuck in what is called the Fixing Unit. Open the top cover. Again, remove the drum and toner. Open the Fixing Unit cover and remove the paper by pulling it back.

    First try a different tray to see if it works, if it does than the paper tray you are using may have dirty feed tires or look for something obstructing it.

    I have a Canon Image Runner 3230 which we also use to scan PDF files into our snap drive. When scanning a large job build, if the machine jams, the documents already scanned in the job build are lost. Is...

    Hi mail. Let me tell you a workaround for this problem.First of all I understand every aspect of your question and problems as the document feeder for the ir 3220 is about the biggest piece of **** I've ever seen and I have been working on copiers since 1988.And when you use the "Universal "SEND" " function I also realize that for example if you have scanned a 500 page document and it jams at 499 you have to start all over again.That because the copier has established communication with the server directly during the "send" process and when an error {document paper jam} occurs, for whatever reason the error cannot be reconciled on the fly. BUT!!!!! :-) If you scan the same document(s) to the "Mailbox" function the copier can and will allow you to recover from such a mishap as the process you are conducting is all happening "on board" the device so if a jam or misfeed occurs in the document feeder during the scanning process the copier will tell you to put the stack of originals back in the feeder with page 1 on top.Then the copier will begin to feed the originals quickly merely to count the pages till it finds the the one it jammed on.Once it counts to the original it failed on it will resume the scanning process.THEN...... no matter how many failures have occurred during the process, once you are done the "SEND" function will appear as an option.At this point you will be viewing the "batches " of documents in the display because if it is a large document you will not have been able to put the entire bulk in the feeder at once.Now highlite all of the"files/batches" and hit EDIT. Under edit will be the "merge" option. Select merge and all the batches you have highlighted will be merged together into one big document.NOW selest SEND and designate the location you wish to send it to.Since the document in its entirety resides correctly in a "mailbox/hardrive" storage area it can be sent with no fear.I have many customers with this same difficulty and this has been a lifsaver. hope this help,and have a better day! :-)
