I need to reprint the last inoming fax. HELP!!!


Printing a Fax in Memory If you have Fax Storage ON for remote retrieval, you can still print a fax in the memory when you are at your machine: 1 Press Menu/Set, 8, 4. 2 Press Fax Start. 3 Press Stop/Exit. (See Turning On Fax Storage, page R-2.) Polling For details about the Polling feature, call our Brother fax-back system 1-800-521-2846 (in USA), 1-800-681-9838 (in Canada) and request at the Index. (See Features That Are Not in the Manual, page 6-6 for details.) Polling is the process of retrieving faxes from another fax machine. You can use your fax machine to "poll" other machines, or you can have someone poll your machine. All parties involved in polling need to set up their fax machines to accommodate polling. When someone polls your machine to receive a fax, they pay for the call; if you poll someone's fax machine to receive a fax, you pay for the call. (See Canceling a Scheduled Job, page 6-5.) Some fax machines do not respond to the Polling feature.

How to set the tax


First, to make sure it will work, your fax machine should be going directly to the phone jack, with the answering mach/phone (if any) going to the ext port in the back of the fax machine. That way, the fax machine can "eavesdrop" for any fax tones for every call. If you want to use the fax machine to work with an answering machine on the same line, make sure to set the answering machine to 2 rings lower than the fax machine. Let's say, you have the answering machine set to 4 rings, your fax machine then should have 6 rings. You can set the number of rings for your fax machine under "basic fax setup" of the "menu". Otherwise, you can set the fax machine to auto answer by pressing the auto answer button.

Fax is printing other fax machine's outbond faxes


Yikes!! Get your phone company involved. Remember that a fax machine uses a normal home style phone line. Something is seriously messy with the phone lines in the building

I am having problems receiving a fax.


Check the number of rings your fax machine is set to. Chances are, the answering machine is set up for 4 rings and the fax machine is set up for 6. If this is the case, change the number of rings on your fax machine to 2 or 3 rings to ensure an incoming fax will go directily to the fax machine. If the fax doesn't recognize the call as a fax, it will go through to the answering machine.

Cannot receive faxes


What is the make and model?

Call the fax machine from a regular phone to see if it answers.

I think you have some sort of phone line problem.

Fax machine modems are good or bad, nothing in-between.

Receive faxes


In the receive mode choose tad. The fax will then distinguish between a fax and a call.

Receiving a fax when using the phone


you can not use the phone simultaneously while sending or receiving a fax. You do not need a separate line. especially if you do not do a lot of faxing. You just can not do both at the same time. You can set your machine to automatically receive faxes when you are not present. The machine will detect the sending tones of the senders fax and automatically receive your fax. You may want to order a users manual from brother to help you set up your fax for your specific needs. Their number is 1-800-284-4357. Another option is you can order the distinctive ring option from your phone company. This will allow you to give out a seperate phone number for your fax while only having one line. The machine can be programed to distinguish the distinctive ring and automatically pick up with out you wondering if it is a fax or phone call. But again you can not talk and fax at the same time. Good luck and let me know if I can be of further help! John

No Dial tone


Have you had an electric storm or power failure? A power surge can cause no dial tone also. It can be the main PCB in the machine or NCU PCB(board for phone cord). Unplug the machine from the wall, put your finger on the menu key first, plug the machine while holding the menu key, the light will flash and display will say maintenance. Press number 82, if there is a DF error the main board will need to replaced. The main board is the brain of the machine and is one of the most expensive parts of the unit. It is hard to distinguish if it is the modem or the main board on this unit that is causing the unit not to have a dial tone. It may be better to take it to a service center.
