FAQs & Troubleshooting

Can I send a fax without scanning the documents into memory?

When your Brother machine's memory is full, it cannot scan documents into memory before faxing them. Real Time Transmission allows you to send faxes without first scanning the documents into memory.


When Real Time Transmission is on, you place the document in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and dial the fax number you want to send to. As soon as your fax line is free, your Brother machine will dial the fax number and send the fax in real time.


You can make Real Time Transmission your default sending setting or temporarily activate it for the next fax you send.

To turn Real Time Transmission on, follow these steps:


  1. Place the document you want to fax face down in the ADF.

  2. Press MENU, 2 (Fax), 2 (Setup Send), 6 (Real Time TX).

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To make Real Time Transmission your default setting, follow these step:

      1. Press the LEFT OR RIGHT ARROW key to select On.

      2. Press the SET key.

      3. Go to STEP 4.

    • To turn Real Time Transmission on for the next fax you send, follow these step:

      1. Press the LEFT OR RIGHT ARROW key to select Next Fax Only.

      2. Press the SET key.

      3. Press the LEFT OR RIGHT ARROW key to select On.

      4. Press the SET key.

      5. Go to STEP 4.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • If you want to adjust additional sending settings, press 1. The LCD will return to the "Setup Send" menu.

    • If you are finished choosing sending setting settings, follow these steps:

      1. Press 2.

      2. Go to STEP 5.

  5. Enter the fax number you want to send to.

  6. Press the FAX START key to send the fax.
