SOURCE: Brother MFC 8500 Fax machine error "offline"

is your fax machine connected to the phone line? this usually indicates the connection status, thus, if your phone line is in...you wont have the "offline message".

hope this helps.

SOURCE: Brother mfc 8500 clicking noises

If you open the cover and remove the toner/drum unit, you will see (on the left side as you remove) a small hole with two triangle teeth.
on either side of this hole are two small phillips head screws. this is the problem we had with our clicking noise. As the machine tries to turn the toner/drum, the innards of the toner are becoming harder to turn. So the part of the fax machine that fits in the hole end up stripping the teeth in that hole. If you have an old toner cartridge, you can remove the gearing from it (where the small phillips head screws are) and use it to replace the gearing on the newer cartridge. Or go buy a new toner cartridge.

71 says the fuser unit is not installed, it means the fuser lamp is burned out, or the temp. sensors are bad. In either case the best repair is a new fuser which you'll find at www.precisionroller.com

This is an easy one. With the power on, open the front door, where you installed the drum. Press the CLEAR button. The display will ask something like, "Change Drum? Press 1 for yes. Press 2 for no."
Press 1.
Close the front door.

error 71 indicates problem with the laser unit motor.. 80% is the motor problem and 20% could be the LVPS board... make sure all the cover and interlock switch are close properly.. as any interlock switch which are not close properly will effect the voltage to the motor..

What is machine error 71 How to fix it?


Error 71 on a MFC-9600 means there is a problem with the motor inside the printer.
You can try unplugging and waiting a few minutes, then plugging back in again.
If it is still coming up with the error, if its still under warranty Brother will replace/repair it for you, otherwise you will have to pay Brother for the repair cost.

SCREEN READS ERROR 71 CALL BROTHER, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM, WHAT NUMBER DO I CALL


This error means that there is a scanner motor error. Try and remove the error by following these steps: Press MENU *,2,8,6,4. The machine beeps for approximately 1 second and will display "MAINTENANCE" on the screen, indicating that it is placed in the initial stage of the maintenance mode, a mode in which the machine is ready to accept entry from the keys. Now you are inside the simulation, Press 01 to reset the error status. After that press 99 to exit the simulation.

- Pressing the 9 key twice in the initial stage of the maintenance mode makes the machine
exit from the maintenance mode, restoring it to the standby state.
- Pressing the Stop button after entering only one digit restores the machine to the initial
stage of the maintenance mode.

Mfc9880 machine error 71


error 71 is a problem with the polygon motor which is in the laser unit. This error usually means that you would need the laser unit replaced.
I'd suggest calling out an engineer.

MFC-8500 fax operation


If there is noise on phone line machine reduces speed to enable fax to be sent. Have line check or try machine on different phone line to ensure it is a phone line problem.
