Im using the Brother MFC 7820n at a hotel. how do i fax? i've tired 9+1+area code+the number, 9+area code+the number and a few others but nothing seems to work, what am i doing wrong?


Depends on the hotel.
Some have a specific dedicated line that allow direct dial (no 9). Some block long distance calls and required the use of a calling card.
Otherwise, dialing 9 should work.
Can you hear the dial tone? What kind of sound do you hear when it fails? Is ti list a fast busy signal? Or do you just hear nothing?
If they have the speaker off, try to call your cell phone from the FAX just to see if it can make an outbound call at all.
Also, try tracing the wire from the fax machine. Make sure it is plugged into LINE and not PHONE. (or the jack with the picture of a wall jack, not a picture of a phone). Some hotel patrons disconnect FAX machines to use the phone line on their laptop modem and then neglect to properly reconnect the fax machine. Also make sure it is connected at the wall.

My Brother MFC7340 Fax Machine will not send faxes it has a busy signal always and a busy signal when someone tries to fax me.


Hi,
You need to reset the memory, since previously you have dialed some number, which is not able to connect. So restart the printer. Unplug the printer for 10 minutes and plug back the power to the printer.

Hope this helps.

press MENU and # ( service mode) with cursors go to clear, ok, clear all and ok.Turn off and on.
If that doesnt help call service.

Be carefull: the tel. line to fax machine must be connected in L slot, not in small picture of telephone.

When I fax it says phone off hook. I get a message stating no answer.


Try dialing the FAX-number with your cell-phone.
Do you hear the "ring", or does the telephone-company give you a "busy" signal ?

Some FAX machines are "busy" -- receiving many FAXES from multiple customers -- reprogram your FAX machine to "retry" a few times.

Or, when a receiving FAX runs out of paper, it sometimes refuses to accept "new" faxes.

Fax problem. Trying to send international fax to France. I can hear the fax number being dialed ok, but no connection after 12 rings. Calling fax number from phone hooked up through mp530 connects ok! ...


Hi ...

It might be possible that the line is loose or the long distance calling code is incorrect. Follow the below instructions which might resolve the problem.

Sending Using a Long Distance Calling Code The telephone company or PBX system may use long distance calling codes on a phone line as a means to manage long distance calls. This service may extend to a fax phone line and for local phone calls as well. To use a calling code for faxing, enter a pause (or pauses, as necessary) in the dialing sequence to allow time for the phone system to distinguish between the phone number and the calling code. For example, if the calling code has to be entered after the phone number, press <Redial/Pause> after the long distance number and then enter the calling code.
Here is an example of a couple of variations that may be used by the phone company / PBX system. (For details on time sequence between the long distance number and when you must enter the calling code, please contact your phone company or telecommunications specialist.)
Long distance number: 212.555.1212
Calling code: 123456
Scenario One: 12125551212p123456 Scenario Two: 123456p12125551212

Note: The above scenarios include a pause (p) in between the dialing sequence. This pause may be necessary to allow the phone system to detect each set of dialing sequences. The pause length can be adjusted from one to nine seconds, the default is two seconds.

Tips to help you send a fax using a calling code.
  1. To send a fax using a calling code, it may be necessary to add a pause(s) before the next string of dialing digits. The above example shows how a calling code is used to dial a long distance fax number. To provide time before the calling code number is dialed and avoid misdialing, a pause should be added.

    Example: 12125551212p123456

    The number of pauses will depend on the phone / PBX system.

    It is suggested to confirm if the time before the next set of digits is dialed will always be constant. This way you can always use the same number of pauses for that dialing sequence. If needed, you can also change the pause [Pause time] length from its default 2 seconds.

  2. Connect a telephone to the fax machine.
    1. Connect a line cord from the telephone wall jack to the [L] jack (or item <1>) on the fax machine.

    2. Connect a line cord from the extension telephone port on the fax machine (top jack (or item <2>)) to an external telephone.

  3. To send a fax using a calling code, it is recommended to dial using the attached telephone.
    1. Press the <FAX> button on the operator panel.
    2. Insert the documents face-up on the ADF.

    3. Pick up the handset of the attached telephone and confirm you hear a dial tone.
    4. Dial the fax destination number on the attached telephone.
    5. When you are prompted to enter your calling code, dial it on the attached phone.
    6. When you hear the remote fax machine's high-pitched receive tones, press <Color> to send a color fax or <Black> to send a black and white fax. The audio signal heard from the handset will be cut off.
    7. Hang up the handset.
    8. When the transaction is complete, the fax machine will return to standby mode.

Fax machine error


I called Kodak support and had to upgrade firm software and reset all the settings to reflect whether I had an answering machine (yes) and call waiting (no). Also found it helpful sometimes to dial out using commas after the 1, to keep it from ringing busy.

Brother 7220


You might need to dial 9, followed by a comma or pause, if you are faxing from inside an office.

You might need to dial 10 digits, if you live in a high density location in North America.

If you're dialing a long-distance number, the person paying for the line may have disabled long-distance calling - check with parents / spouse / boss / landlord, as applicable.

Fax


I'm not sure where your machine is attached. But are you plugged into a pabx or switchboard system? If you are then I think you may either need an access code for either outside like or long distance calls. The other thing is the setting on the machine. Can I assume it is on tone dialing? If it is set on pulse, then it won't work. I'm assuming you are in the U.S. that uses almost all tone dialing. Hope this helps.

Using a calling card for a long distance fax


It will surely help if you are using a calling card that has a pinless dialing feature where you don't need to dial your pin. I use Onesuite.com calling card and it has that feature and sending a fax through regular fax machine is easier than having to dial your pin midpoint.
