To turn off the Deep Sleep mode you need to do the following: Press Menu. With the up and down arrows select 1. General Setup, press OK. Select 4. Ecology, press OK. Select 2. Sleep Time, press OK. Then, with the two-digit sleep time still on the screen, PRESS TOGETHER the LOW ARROW + START keys. The Deep Sleep menu will appear. You can then choose yes or no with the up and down arrows. Enter OK, then press Stop/Exit to exit the Manu mode.
As much as the deep sleep mode is ecologically friendly, it remains incomprehensible why Brother made the access to controlling the Deep Sleep mode so hidden and arcane.
The machine makes excellent copies and is a great printer. As to durability and cost of maintenance, remains to be seen.
Once I unboxed the unit, I used masking tape to cover the black areas and any open electronics. Using a simple flat black can of spray paint, I was able to make it all black. Nobody can tell it was painted even when I point it out to them. First problem fixed.
I have had the unit for about 7 months and it has performed flawlessly. It even uses the same toner as a wireless Brother printer I have which is a bonus as well. This past week of course, I encountered the DEEP SLEEP curse that so many people speak of. The machine will do half a ring and act weird, but will not receive faxes. After some research and playing around, there is a solution, even though Brother has decided to hide the feature.
You ARE able to disable DEEP SLEEP.
Go to General Settings, Ecology, Sleep Mode. When it asks you to change the time before sleep, simultaneously press the START and DOWN ARROW buttons. You will now get the hidden option to Disable DEEP SLEEP mode. Disable it and enjoy your fax for many years to come.
It was fairly easy to hook up and only took a few minutes for me to have it up and running and this was with a few telephone interruptions
Also while it does come with everything that you need to get started you're probably going to want to order an extra toner cartridge right away, the one that comes with it is only a starter and if you receive a lot of faxes you might just find yourself without any toner.
I'll update this review after I've had more time to use the printer.
When you look at the screen when it's not answering it's in "deep sleep" mode. This is apparently different than just regular "sleep mode." So you would think, "I'll just turn off deep sleep mode and that will solve the problem," except that you CAN'T turn off deep sleep mode. It's part of the "ECO" aspect of the fax and it's impossible to shut off in any of the menus.
So there you have it: a fax that receives faxes . . . . sometimes. . . . Not a very useful quality in a fax machine. You might think that I just got a lemon but Google this problem and see what you find. I'm not saying it's 100% of the faxes that do this, but clearly the one I got isn't the only one.
