Question about Brother Fax Machines

1 Answer

Does the Brother MFC 7225N need to be powered on in order to recieve faxes? I do not plan to keep the machine on most of the time, unless I'm using it and I do not want it to answer and compete with my answering machine as I bought it mostly to use as a laser printer, but wanted the other functions for the times I might need them.

Yes, power must be on. Scroll thru the menus to set your fax to manual, it won't pick up a fax until you press Start.

Fax machines are designed to have their own dedicated phone line.

The LCD screen keep displaying "Printing" but


I have seen this so many times I thought I would post an answer on this so you can repair your Brother MFC series machine that says printing and will not function. Using this procedure will save you from having to call out a service technician. Any time your machine says "printing" and will not do anything simply turn off the power. Now hold down the red clear/stop button WHILE turning the power back on. Continue holding the clear key for a few seconds then release. Your "printing" message should be gone and your machine should be back at the ready screen.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya!

Hi. Open the document control panel and look in with a flashlight and see if the jam switch is stuck. also look for a small piece of paper that might be stuck in there. The jam is in where you put documents in to fax out. Lawrence
