Question about Fax Machines

1 Answer

Due to near thunderstorm I unplugged my Edimax AR-7024Wg. On switching the power back on the Edimax has stopped working. My only attempts at restoring it are 1. pushing the reset button (lights come on whilst holding it in but go out as soon as I release reset button) and 2. disconnecting power cable from back of router. Nothing!

Display says "L8" ???


Are you sure L8 ?

Likely I knowed about Error 78...

Machine error 76-78 are fuser errors. 95% of the time due to a sudden power loss like during a thunderstorm. The machine turns off for a brief second then back on. When this happens the machine likes to go read the fuser's temperature without waiting for it to warm up. It reads a low temperature and gives you the code. Most brothers service modes are entered by pressing Menu,*,2,8,6,4. Has to be done in a certain time frame so it might take a try or two. Once entered the machine will beep, the lights on the display will flash and it will read MAINTENANCE. Next enter 9,9 and the machine will reboot. That should fix the issue if not and your mechanically inclined I would pull out the fuser and check for continuity across the lamps and thermal fuses.

I hope helps.

We are getting Error CODE 021 on our fax machine Panafax UF-560 and can't find the owners manual to fix it...can you help?


Error code 021 indicates a bad fuser but in some cases, the error can be reset. To attempt a reset, do the following:
  1. Remove the toner cartridge and close door back up.
  2. Power down the fax (switch is on the back side lower left) for 5-10 seconds.
  3. Power on the fax and see if the 021 code is gone.
  4. Re-insert toner cartridge
If this doesn't work, there's one other thing to try prior to calling a technician.

1. Push the function button
2. Push 7 on the key pad
3. Push Monitor button 4 times (it will only beep at you)
4. Push * on key pad

You should now see the service menu option

5. Push 7 on the key pad
6. Push "Set" button
7. Push down arrow button once

You should now see the fuser reset option

8. Push "Set" button

You will be prompted for 1 for Yes 2 for no

9. Push 1 on key pad.

You should receive confirmation that the reset is *COMPLETE*

10. Push Stop button until back to the main screen

11. Power down the fax
12. Wait 5-10 seconds.
13. Power on the fax

If this doesn't work, a service call will be needed to replace the fuser. I do hope this fixes your problem.

Non-stop printing with unreadable characters


hi Glenda, unplug the unit from it's power source, take out all the paper and leave it for about a hourplug it back in and try to run through setup again, it sounds like to me that your memory is either full, or got a "powersurge", like thunderstorm,power outage,etc if it starts acting up right off the bat then push the stop/reset button, you can either hold it down and count to ten, or push it quickly a couple of times, it should reset one of these ways, if it does remember which way in the event the power goes out again,clear the memory, and it should be alright, please let me know if this solved your problem, may god bless and happy 4th

IntelliFAX 4750E - Printer Busy


The printers memory may be full depending on the type of documents they are printing. The first and most simple step is to unplug the power cord from the back of the unit for 30 seconds, put your finger on the stop key while plugging the unit back up and continue holding the stop key until the time and date are back on the display of the Brother unit.

If that does not work unplug the USB cable from the PC. Unplug the power cord from the unit again. Put your finger on the menu key first and then plug the unit back up. You want to hold the menu key unit the until the LCD says maintanence and all the lights are flashing. Let the menu key go and press the number 82 and will give you an error code. If the error code is 00 then there are no errors. If there is an error code record it and contact brother or check a service manual if you have one. Most laser products all have the same error codes with Brother.

To reset the unit press stop and then 91, this will reset the unit and all faxes or print jobs will be lost. This should clear the issue.

Wont' send a fax


In my experience, anything plugged up to a phone line can be some of the most susceptible to electric discharge. Thunderstorms, power surges, brown out, all of these can cripple or kill a fax machine. When I saw this symptom on a fax, 9 times out of 10 it was caused by a power surge of some sort. The line error is most likely the machine's outgoing line has been zapped. The 775 (and it's father, the 770) are some of the most straightforward faxes I have dealt with when it comes to faxing. There is no internal setting that I am aware of that would inhibit the sending of faxes. I would double check the transmission report to make sure that the machine isn't doing something weird like adding extra digits to the numbers you are dialing. It would still be worth your time to try a few things, though. I would plug the fax into another phone jack using a different phone cord if available. Also try using the fax as a telephone, call a number and see if you can connect. If you can, make sure both parties can hear each other clearly. If you can not, the machine will need to be replaced.

Usually, you can just leave the thing unplugged- from the power supply- for a while and clear its memory. There may also be a reset button on the machine, look for it near where the ports/connectors are, and hold it down- most devices will flash a light or beep if the reset is done properly.

Printer error Info code=021


Hi, machine error/info codes usually require service. Attempting the following involves some risk, you may loose complete access to your unit or not do anything at all. It is strongly recommended that you call a qualified service personnel/professional. However, if you feel like giving it a try while praying..... reset the system: Power on, wait for a minute or two, Function button, 7 (keypad), Monitor button (4X), soon as you hear the beep punch * (keypad). You will now be in the service menu. If no service menu, stop, do not power off, unplug. If in service menu, 7 (keypad), Set, go to Reset Option (arrow down one step), Set. Unit will prompt you to reset, press 1 for yes, system will confirm that it has completed resetting. Go back to main menu (Stop button), power down, wait again for a minute or two, power up. Please remember that resetting may, can and will erase all your personal settings and preferences including day/date/time, etc. The above steps may make your unit completely useless. If still you have the 021 code, you can brute force it to reset. Power on without a toner cartridge. In self-test, it will check itself and reset many functions to determine faults (including toner cartridge and your code 021). Wait again for a minute or two, Power off, reinseert the toner cartridge, wait again for a minute or two, and power up. If all else fails (including the prayer) pls go back to the first paragraph. The above steps are not mine but were described by a good samaritan. Hope this works out for you and lots of luck.
