Somehow our machine is no longer on auto receive. we need to pick up the receiver and hit start each time it rings in order to receive the fax please help


Press the Reception Mode button to toggle between Fax, Answering Machine and Tel (manual receive). If you need to change the number of rings before the Fax is picked up, press Function 4 then # # # Then press a number between 1 and 5 followed by Stop.

I hope this helps.

(BTW there is a little arrow that points to the Reception Mode on the LCD screen -> Tel on the left, Fax on the right (both of these across the top right), and A.M. on right side.)

Screen says "mnl"


MNL indicates the fax is set for manual reception, you have to press "start" to receive the fax. There should be a button on the control panel for reception mode, press the button until it says auto or fax or fax only. If you do not have the manual, you can go to brother-usa.com and look for downloads.

I want to shut off answering machine


Use the Reception Mode button to set appropriate answering mode - press it repeatedly until a small arrow on the display will point to the desired option:

"TAD" - is the one you are using now, when the answering machine picks up the calls.

"TEL" - is the setting when no automatic pickup occurs, you always have to pick up the call and either talk (if there's a person on the other side), or press START to receive a fax (when you hear the fax beeps on the other side).

"FAX" - is the setting when after four rings the fax will pick the call up automatically (no answering machine). If you pick up the call manually after 1-2-3 rings (before the automatic pickup) you can either talk or START fax reception.

It's good to check from time to time if the reception mode is as you want it, it's easy to change it by mistake.

Good luck and come back with a testimonial if helped :)

Fax not working


Set the Receive Mode to "Auto". There should be a reception mode button on the keyboard that switches the reception mode. Sometimes the machine gets accidentally set to "Manual" or "TEL" mode.

Sharp UX-B750 won't automatically answer calls.


Your reception mode is set to TEL/FAX or TEL mode, to set it to automatically receive faxes it should be set to FAX. Look at the LCD display ( right section ).

To change the reception mode you can print the HELP LIST by pressing COPY/HELP button.

Unable to receive faxes


I believe it is set to manual reception, meaning that you have to push start to get a fax. You should be able to go into the setup manual and select automatic reception. In this case the fax will answer automatically. You can test this by calling your fax number from another phone and observe it's behavior.

It could be a compatibility issues between the two faxes. If the other fax is particularly old its communication speed could be too slow for your fax.

Also don't rule out the line on there end. Many times in my job I've had Telephone company's check the line remotely and say its ok but its not until they come out to site that they find an actual fault.

Do a manual reception. Put your fax reception mode from automatic to manual. When the fax rings in pick up the line with the hook or speaker phone button and then press the start button. This rules out a fair part of the line correction. If you can receive of course.

There is a big trouble


all faxes use automatic fallback sytem for dropping the speed as well as the machines communicate on the highest common speed therefor you don't need to set the speed. Apart from the situation if your phone line is disturbed and not receiving faxes and giving communication errors.... happy faxing omnipresent
