Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Use MFC-465CN withou cartridges

I'd like to use only the Scan and Fax (out) functions of the machine, but can't get it running without inserting the cartridges first. As I'm far from the machine 90% of the year, I'm afraid it will just get the ink dried out, and I will have to put new cartridges. I don't need to print in colour.

Any suggestions how to achieve this?

In order to scan you need to have ink in cartridges?... great design!!! cheat the printer - use black electric tape to cover transparent slots at the back of your cartridges (printer will think that it has ink and it should stop that annoying beeping)

Brother MFC 3360 C can not send fax.It show "sending" ....thats all never finished.


When my fax machine does this, it prints out an error code. Most of the times it's "Poor transmission" or "Bad line". I can duplicate the problem by trying to fax out on my VoIP line instead of my regular land line.

Anymore today, it's usually easier to scan and email the document. I can e-fax the scan if I'm sending it to someone without an email address.

I can not clear the memory MC-465CN on the fax - this is a mulitple function Brother - copies, scans, faxes,photo


If you clear the memory, any faxes stored will be also be erased. This solution assumes that you have the fax storage option "On" to store faxes in memory.

On the control panel:

1) Press <Menu>

2) Use <Up> or <Down> arrow keys until "Fax" appears on the display, press <OK>

3) Use <Up> or <Down> until "Remote Fax Option" or "Advanced Fax Operation" appears, press <OK>

4) Use <Up> or <Down> until "Off" appears, then press <OK>

5) You will be prompted: "Erase all fax?" 1. Yes 2. No

Press <1> to erase all faxes in memory.

6) Press <Stop/Exit> to return to normal function

How can I delete the memory on a brother mfc-465cn printer fax machine? It will not receive faxes due to this


Review page 65 in your manual. Changing the "Advanced Fax Operations:"

If received faxes are left in your machine's
memory when you change the Advanced Fax
Operations, the LCD will ask you one of the
following questions:

Erase All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

Print All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

• If you press 1, faxes in the memory will
be erased or printed before the setting
changes. If a backup copy has already
been printed it will not be printed again.
• If you press 2, faxes in the memory will
not be erased or printed and the setting
will be unchanged.

Black cartridge doesn't print


you need to do a hard reset on the printer as well it might clear up the problem and recognize the ink at its proper levels.

refer to your user manual or let us know and we will find the procedure to do so.

i have a similar model and know how picky they can be.

Fax


Non. C'est ne pas possible avec le mfc240c. Vous besoin un mfc 440cn/465cn qui a cette function: mfc(fax) ->PC( a dossier ou voir et/ou effacier) -> imprimer.

(excuse moi, mais je ne parle pas beaucoup de francais!)
