Question about Brother MFC-8440 All-In-One Laser Printer

3 Answers

3 beeps on button pressed

Every time I press a button (any), the MFC beeps 3 times and won't do anything. I restarted the machine and it does the same thing. This problem doesn't seem to be documented into the user manuel and I don't know what else to do.

This work for me...the zero button was stuck on the numeric keypad. I would suggest looking over each one to determine if one of them are stuck as with mine.

I had this problem. Just like Geoff176 I had a stuck 0 button (why don't I EVER check the simple stuff). I just popped it up with a screwdriver and the unit functioned normally.

Will not receive faxes or copy Fax line rings but the machine says its receiving but nothing will print out and it won't copy pages either I've tried turning the machine off for up to 5 minutes,...


To begin troubleshoot,you should set the machine to basic Fax/Tel mode only.
1 If it is not illuminated in green, press (Fax). 2 Press Menu/Set, 2, 1, 2. 3 Press ? or ? to select how long the MFC will ring to alert you that you have a voice call (20, 30, 40 or 70 seconds). Press Menu/Set. 4 Press Stop/Exit. Even if the caller hangs up during the pseudo/double-ringing, the MFC will continue to ring for the set time.
After you confirm your Brother MFC-5440CN is able to receive fax then you can pick one of the 4 modes as describe on the owner manual.

Brother MFC-685cw stuck shutting down/standing by


Hold down that on/off button for at least 10 seconds without pushing any other buttons, wait after you release it and it should either wake up or shut down.

Brother MFC-8500


what normally helps with brother is unplugging the machine for about an hour and plug it back in.
In your manual says how you can make a test print.
This will clear your internal buffer.

Also it might help un installing the machiine from your network and installing the software new.
try it and let me know what happens

Brother MFC 8500 receives faxes and does nothing else


Check to make sure that the PC Fax Function is turned off. I noticed after I connected the 8500 to my PC and installed the software, I too could no longer receive faxes and it was corrected after I turned this PC Fax function off.

The function is located by:

  1. Press the MENU button.
  2. Select Option 2.
  3. Select Option 1.
  4. Select Option 8 (PC Fax) and turn that function OFF.
Hope this helps!
