FAX BROTHER mfc 885cw

Can you help me, my fax works beautifully during the day. I receive faxes from nz but GE finance send a settlement confirmation fax from australia between 4.30 and 5a.m. during the week at times and it wakes the household!!! I have written, spoken to them but to no success. They say they are sending it to the same fax number. What happens is that it goes to my phone line and the answer ph kicks in. It keeps retrying for 3 more attempts. Not pleasant at 4.30 a.m. My phone has a different number - that last digit is different.
Would love your help.

This is obviously a phone company issue or a defect in GE fax machine keypad or circuitry. Last but not least turn off your machine at night. Turn it back on when you wake up.

3. Press the OK key to confirm your choice.

4. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Print Fax.

- Your Brother machine will print the stored faxes.

7. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.

8. Once the stored faxes have been printed, click WINDOWS/START, (ALL) PROGRAMS, BROTHER, XXX-XXXX (X = MODEL NUMBER), PC-FAX RECEIVING, XXX-XXXX or RECEIVE (depending on your operating system).

9. The Brother PC-fax receiving icon will now appear in your Windows Task Tray indicating that Brother PC-Fax Receiving is active.

My fax BROTHER MFC-215C does not print after RECEIVING. it also does not send fax after scanning.


The solution, finally, was very simple: To disconnect the mains voltage, for several days, from BROTHER MFC-215 .
After that, I was successful to receive and print the incoming faxes.

Thank you very much for your willing to help.

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.

Brother Multi function centre with fax, MFC 885CW we have the setting on F/T, it answers a fax after 2 rings, if a call coming in it keeps ringing, but on callers end it keeps beeping fax noises, callers...


Hi,

I had the same problem using my Brother MFC 8460N fax on the same line as my regular telephone, which has an answering machine.

There was nothing wrong with my equipment. It was a set-up issue. I solved it as follows, and maybe this will be helpful to you:

Here's what I did, step by step:

1. Put your MFC and your telephone near each other, and within reach of a phone wall jack.

2. Go to the fax machine. Take the telephone line with the clip on the end of it that comes out of the fax machine. Put that into the telephone wall jack.

3. Go to the answering machine. Take its telephone line with the clip on the end of it and put that into the BACK OF THE FAX MACHINE. The port on the back of my fax machine says something like EXT TAD which means external telephone answering device.


4. Go back to the fax machine. You'll now need to play around with the menu options for the fax. My Brother MFC shows this stuff in a little screen on the front. Try and find the Fax Setup options. Next, try and find the Fax Receive options. If you do, select something like External TAD fax receive mode. Do not give up, you're almost done.


5. Next, set ring numbers on both devices, the fax machine and the answering machine. I set both devices' ring numbers to 4. I don't know if these are the optimal settings, or what happens if you set them at different ring numbers. I only know that a "4 and 4" setting works for me, and am not inclined to mess with it.

6. Final detail: the setup should be transparent to a voice caller. Someone who is sending a fax, though, might be a little confused IF, like me, they lean over to listen to their fax machine dial and screech, just to be sure it's working. Such a person may faintly hear my outgoing answering machine message before they heard my fax machine's screech kick in. They might think that they had a wrong number, cancel the fax, try again, call me with questions, etc., etc. So I changed my outgoing message to something like: 'You have reached xxx xxx xxxx. To leave a voice msg, please wait for the tone. To send a fax, please continue the transmission and it will be printed. Thank you!'

That's it. Hope this was helpful.

Best,

Wilbere
