How do i get dial tone on fax machine


first, as a tech, i would make sure your phone jack works, then also make sure the line is plugged into the "line" jack on rear of fax. if those two steps are verified beyond a doubt, press your "hook" button and listen for dail tone. if none, pick up handset and listen. if you get tone on handset, then your speaker is disconnected. if you don't get a tone either way, then chances are you have a bad "NCU" board.

good luck,

How to set the date and the time in brother fax mfc-8220? what's the steps?


Your MFC displays the date and time and if you set up the Station ID
it prints on every fax you send. If there is a power failure, you may
have to reset the date and time. All other settings will not be affected.
1 Press Menu, 0, 2.
2 Enter the last two digits of the year.
Press Set.
3 Enter two digits for the month.
Press Set.
(For example, enter 09 for September, or 10 for October.)
4 Enter two digits for the day.
Press Set.
(For example, enter 06 for 6th.)
5 Enter the time in 24-Hour format.
Press Set.
(For example, enter 15:25 for 3:25 P.M.)
6 Press Stop/Exit.
The LCD now shows the date and time whenever the MFC is in
Standby mode.

thx, if this helps please rate :)

How do I turn off ECM in my Brother MFC 8220?


From the Brother website:
If you are using Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP), (a technology that allows you to make telephone calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line, review the information listed below. If you are not using VoIP continue to Step 8.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is not a marketed feature of your Brother machine, however there is a compatibility setting available with this machine that may assist with sending and receiving faxes when using VoIP. Adjusting this setting lowers the baud rate (modem speed) and turns ECM (Error Correction Mode) Off. To adjust this setting follow the steps listed below:



  1. Press Menu or Menu/Set => Fax => Miscellaneous => Compatibility.
  2. Select Basic.
  3. Press OK or Menu/Set. (For touchscreen models, skip this step.)
  4. Press Stop/Exit.

Unable 2 send or recive fax


Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions. If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

the fax may be out of ink, out of paper , or set in the manual mode , I would think its set in the manual mode and has to be reset in the auto mode, go to settings , receive mode and set to auto.

It answers for a second and then disconnects the call.


Make sure the phone line is ANALOG. DSL makes fax machines go nuts.
