Question about Brother IntelliFAX 3800 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Can't recieve a fax.

Senders can't send a fax. If someone calls the fax they get a busy tone. However you can use the handset to call out and it sends a fax just fine.

I cant receive fax


Is there a dial tone if you pick up the reciever ? Can you send faxes or use the machine to make a phone call ? If you can make calls or send faxes the machine probably needs to be set to the auto recieve mode so that it automatically answers when a fax is being recieved. If no dial tone you may have a loose connection to your phone jack.

When someone is trying to fax us, it says on their side that it went through but we hear no dial tone and do not recieve any faxes. What can we do to try to fix this? We have to have our fax working as...


Well first thing is to call your own fax machine from a telephone at your location and make sure that it rings and answers....you should hear the tones in the earpiece of the phone you are calling from. If that works, go to your fax and try to make a "copy" on it to make sure it actually prints onto paper. Then get someone locally with a fax machine to send you a fax...make sure your machine answers and then prints the page out. If it wont print the pages out are the pages going into memory???? Maybe your machine is asking for toner or a drum???

HP 5610 All-in-one can recieve faxes but not send, when sending a fax i always get the busy tone. connot understand why, recieves faxes prefectly.


Have you set for the proper dialing? there's a choice for pulse or tone dialing, you probably need tone dialing. Also the number needs to be put in just as you would dial on a phone.

Busy signal, phone states ''line in use.''


Make sure the handset is set in it's cradle. But it sounds like some other device is on the phone line.

Phone line gets busy tone while recieving fax in DRPD mode


As I understand it, this is as it should be. You have two different numbers sharing the same physical line and only one can be active at any one time, so if you are using the phone and someone tries to fax, the fax line will be engaged and similarly, if you are sending a fax and someone tries to ring on your phone line, it will be engaged.

Recieveing


If all else fails try the manual mode:(Press Receive Mode to select
FAX ONLY, FAX/TEL,TAD:ANSWER MACH. orMANUAL.)

Manual Reception
1
Pick up the handset while the phone is ringing.
2 Press Fax Start if you hear fax tones (beeps).
3 When the LCD shows RECEIVING, replace the handset.
(best used when you are expecting a fax and know that the incoming call is a fax)

If you are like most people you probably also have a phone with an answering machine or voicemail setup on your home phone. If this is the case you may want to set the reception made to
TAD:ANSWER MACH.

Sending a fax


First make sure that the fax button has been pushed and is llit...

The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.

The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.

Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.
