Question about Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer

1 Answer

Follow up... thank you for having me do the fax clean up...i did 2, 5 3 and now it seems to be printing out all my old faxes from almost a year ago.  Is that really necessary?  Such a waste of paper.  Is all of this sitting in the fax line-up?

Hi balihi - sorry for the delay - system didn't notify me of your post. I apologize. If the faxes were taking up all your memory then yes. Did that solve the problem? I believe there's a setting to not keep faxes in memory or change how many or how long it keeps them for. If it fixed your original problem, PLEASE go to your original post and rate my answer as fixed. I'm disabled and it would mean a few more bucks for me but it has to be done in the next few hours. I'll check the settings for you or if you prefer I can get you a manual. Rate the other post if it fixed it please and I'll check in later on this one. Thanks.

    Hi balihi - Sorry again about the faxes. Didn't realize you had so many in memory. Were you able to copy and print ok after that? If you were, if you wouldn't mind please go back to your original post where everyone chimed in and rate my answer as fixed. If you don't the system will assume the problem is solved and award the monetary compensation to whomever is listed as first. If you can't find it, just log on and under the section marked my questions it will list your questions. Thanks. If you need more help just ask.

I have an HP 2140 fax purchased one year ago. I have never replaced the catridge and have used the fax about once a month. Today I am trying to copy and it won't print. I cleaned the nozzle and still...


New cartridge wouldnt print but sounded like it was printing. You can check ink levels clean or align cartridge by pushing menu then tools. I cleaned contact points w qtip and alcohol. What seemed to work is putting alcohol on cartridge where ink is released and putting back into machine wet did this three times first time little dots of ink then a faint print and now it is printing must have been dried ink further then I could access.

I am trying to retrieve a fax from the memory that was sent to me a couple weeks ago, is this possible?


Hi there!
It is possible if the fax storage of your fax machine is on. To check if its in press Menu 2 5 1, the lcd should show fax storage. and to print the fax press Menu, 2 5 3 to print the stored fax.
If the lcd shows off when you press Menu 2 5 1 there is no way to print that fax.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Intellifax 770 print transmission verification report for multipl


You can print an activity report by pressing FUNCTION, 7, 2, START. That will give you the last 30 faxes sent and received, It will only show that you dialed though, it will not be a true verification report. In case you need it, you can download the manual for your fax here:

Need to confirm details of when and what number a fax was sent approx 15 days ago.


The only way to check old transfer info for faxes is by printing out the journal. The way to do this varies from fax to fax, but most often is either with it's own button "reports" (and then "fax journal"), or by choosing "print reports" in the regular menu. The journal is emptied during power outs, so if you have had a power failure since, you cannot get the information. Additionally, the only info you will get from this is to where/from where the fax was sent, and if it was successful. Any information on the actual fax content is unavailable.

Ink cartridges, recieving fax


It sound like your machine is receiving but as soon as it tries to prints the fax it has this problem.

Rewind the ink ribbon so it is nice and tight in the housing. Clean the black roller above it with some cleaning alcohol or equivalent (nothing too harsh).

See how that goes if you are still having problems replace the whole cartridge (not the refills) PC-401.

Nothing prints on the paper for incoming faxes or copying a document.


i suspect you are correct in cleaning the unit.inkjets if not used often enough the ink will clog the print head. usually the easiest solution is to keep cleaning unit it works again. other wise to clean the print head manually requires the unit to be completely dissambled. it takes a long time to fix it this way. or if replacement costs are acceptable you can replace it. i would just give it a dozen or so more cleanings.
