Your telephone line may have degraded.. It's quite common really, where moisture gets into the telecom cables.. Have you had a lot of rain lately? The telecom company can do a line test from the telephone exchange, if you request it.. But not always easy to arrange :-) - If you have the test done, you might have to remove all other extension lines off your main incoming line just for the test period.. Anyway, one test you can do yourself is to remove all other extensions off the line & move your fax machine to the main socket & plug it in there.. It might prove whether another telephone is causing a load problem.. Also, have you noticed a difference in the quality of voice over your telephone/s lately? Might be an electrical/electronic fault in one of the phones.. Have you purchased or installed any new phones or lines or modems lately? Maybe move the fax to the neighbors or a friends place, just for testing.. This will prove if it's the device or the line. Rgds,

My brother mfc-490cw I can't send or recieve faxes.


According to the User's Manual for the Brother MFC-490CW:
  • Poor Line Connection indicates an issue with your telephone line (Page 136). If you are sharing the fax line with any splitters or computers, try connecting the MFC-490CW directly to the phone jack and send a fax. If you are still getting a Poor Line Connection error message, call the telephone company and have a repair technician check your telephone line.

  • Out of Memory error message means the machine's memory is full (Page 138).

    Try pressing Stop/Exit and wait until all current operations finish and try again.

    Try clearing the data in memory. To gain extra memory space. turn off Memory Receive (See Page 48).

    Try printing the faxes that are in memory (See Page 49).

  • System Busy error message wasn't in the manual, but I suspect it means there's a current operation in progress and the machine needs time to finish before moving on to another job. Just wait for the current job to finish, then try again.
