Error 77 is a fuser error. If resetting the power doesn't work, then the fuser is bad and it will need replacement. Repair should cost around $200-250.

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.

Using MagicJack for faxing; however, Brother MFC 290C is stating poor line condition - why? Also say's low ink Magenta - would that create this problem?


I had the same problem trying to send out faxes out using my Brother MFC 7340. I use a magic jack phone line. Page 106 of the user manual says if sending via VOIP phone line, you should press menu, then 2, 0, 1 to select "Basic (for VOIP) mode. Then press ok. Then press stop/exit. This cuts the modem speed down to 9600 bps and turns ECM off. Then retry to send the fax. I did that and can now send and receive faxes.

Brother MFC-7840W fax will not work


Plug a regular phone into the wall jack and listen for a dial tone.

Phone cord should be connected to the LINE port of the fax.

Do you have DSL?

Unplug power cord for 10 seconds.

Fax doesn't recognize incoming phone call


Try this: using a cell phone, call your fax. Listen on the cell for a busy signal, fax tones, dial tone, etc. If the fax does not answer the cell, check the following: make sure the phone line is plugged into the LINE jack on the fax, NOT THE PHONE JACK. The phone jack is to connect a TELEPHONE to the fax. If problem still exists, press MENU on your MFC, and scroll to GENERAL SETUP, FAX. Scroll to SETUP RECEIVE, and, after writing down the settings, try changing the RING DELAY or RING TIME settings. If problem is still there, press CLEAR/BACK button until GENERAL SETUP appears on screen. Scroll down to INITIAL SETUP, and select RECEIVE MODE. Try changing RECEIVE MODE settings. Write them down before you change anything.

Error 77


related to a fuser error. Unit is detecting a too high or low heat internally. Try turning off for a few minutes. If error returns check voltage level at outlet or try a different outlet. Maybe too many items plugged in same outlet. If error returns, may need new fuser or thermistor.

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!
