Question about Brother MFC-8840D All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Where is the dx lever?

Your answer provided on 6/21/08 was not at all clear. A previous user asked where the dx lever was located on the machine and your answer was to locate the dx lever on the machine. Doesn't make sense that you would respond that way. You didn't answer the question which I'm very interested in because I now have the very same issue.

There is a lever on the back of the machine. I had this same error message, and I just moved the lever to the opposite side. The first time I moved it, items printed on single side still in the cue came out. Immediately after it printed, the DX lever message appeared on the error screen again. I went back and switched to to the other side, and then my duplex copies in the cue started to print. So far so good. Somehow the duplex feature was manually shut off. My husband was printing office checks at the time, so this might have triggered something, since the checks cannot be printed in duplex mode.

The Brother is a little clunky of a machine. So...even though the duplex lever in the back isn't marked, and I couldn't find the info in the user manual...this seems to be the only thing that's manually adjustable on the machine.

Hope this helps!

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

You can download the user manual here http://www.nswcashregisters.com.au/free_download.html

7-15 shows you how to reset the machine, which you may need to do. This will erase everything but should get you back in business.

First though make sure you have tried turning off the machine, unplugging it for a few seconds and then plugging back in/turning on. If that doesn't fix it then:

Power off the machine, then while holding down "C" and "7", power on the machine. This clears working memory.

If that doesn't work, power off, the hold "C" and "3" and power on. This clears working memory and report data.

Last resort is the same as above but press "C" and "9" keys while turning on. This clears everything.

How do I use use a distinctive ring to separate the incoming fax from the incoming normal calls I want to direct to the answering machine. I am from S. Africa. I am using an all in one Samsung SCX-4521F. I...


Firstly, you will need to get a 2nd ringtone from your phone provider. Most of them will provide a designated "fax ring" (not a new number) for little or no cost.

In DRPD mode, you can receive a call using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature. “Distinctive Ring” is a telephone company service which enables a user to use a single telephone line to answer several different services.

Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection feature, your fax machine can “learn” the ring pattern you designate to be answered by the fax machine. Unless you change it, this ringing pattern will continue to be recognized and answered as a fax call, and all other ringing patterns will be forwarded to the
extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack. You can easily suspend or change Distinctive Ring
Pattern Detection at any time.

Before using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your telephone line by the telephone company. To set up Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection, you will need access to another telephone or someone available to dial your fax number from outside (a cell phone will do!).

To set up the DRPD mode:

1 Press Menu until “Fax Setup” appears on the top line of the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “Receive Mode” on the bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “DRPD Mode” on the bottom line and press Enter.
4 When “Set” displays on the bottom line, press Enter.
“Waiting Ring” appears on the display.
5 Call your fax number from another telephone. It is not necessary to place the call from a fax machine.
6 When your machine begins to ring, do not answer the call.
The machine requires several rings to learn the pattern.
When the machine completes learning, the LCD displays “End DRPD Setup”.
If the DRPD setup fails, “DRPD Ring Error” appears. Press Enter when “DRPD Mode” displays and retry from step 3.
7 To return to Standby mode, press Stop/Clear.
When the DRPD feature is set up, the DRPD option is available in the Receive Mode menu.

To receive faxes in the DRPD mode,
you need to set the menu to DRPD;

NOTES:
• DRPD must be set up again if you re-assign your fax number, or connect the machine to another telephone line.

• After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to verify that the machine answers with a fax tone. Then have
a call placed to a different number assigned to that same line to be sure the call is forwarded to the extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack.

• In Tel mode, you can receive a fax by picking up the handset of the extension phone and then pressing the remote receive code Alternatively, you can press On Hook
Dial
(you can hear a fax tone from the remote machine) and then press Start on the control panel of your machine.
• In the Fax mode, the machine answers an
incoming call and immediately goes into fax
reception mode.
• In Ans/Fax mode, the answering machine answers an incoming call, and the caller can leave a message on the answering machine. If the fax machine senses a fax tone on the line, the call automatically switches to Fax mode.
• In DRPD mode, you can receive a call using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature. This option is available only when you set up the DRPD Mode.

Hope that is of help to you :)
