2nd hand fax machine showing fax no of original owner

We have been given a fax by a member of staff & plugged this into our fax line. Having used the fax today, the receiver of the fax has noted that the number displayed (which should be our number) is the number of the original staff member. How do we change this? Thanks.

We are having problems receiving faxes but printing is fine we do not seem to have a ringtone signal

First make sure dial tone form wall is working, just plug in a hand set. If no dial tone, call phone company. If dial tone then make sure line is plugged from wall into fax port that says Line not TEL. Can you send faxes ok?

Need to set up machine was given as gift

There are two ways to use a fax machine in your home or office. You can either have a standalone fax machine, or you can use your computer for this purpose. Either way, setup is very simple. You don't even have to be a tech guru to do it. First, decide if you'd like to have a separate phone line for your faxes so they don't interrupt communications at the office. If so, have the phone company install the line before you get started with fax setup.
Setting Up a Traditional Machine
  • Step 1.Set your fax machine on a flat and even surface. Plug the power cord into the wall. Fill the paper tray and slide it into the front of the machine.
  • Step 2.Plug one end of a standard phone cable into the phone jack and the opposite end into the port on the fax machine. It's usually on the back or the side.
  • Step 3.Turn on the machine and pick up its telephonemag-glass_10x10.gif. If you don't hear a dial tone, check your phone cable to make sure it's secure. Then turn to the LCD screen and start programming your options. Since all machines are different, see the instructions in the owner's manual.

    Do not have a owners manual to show you how to fax. A sharp ux-114 fax machine.

    ....and you won't likely find a manual for that old one.
    What's so difficult though?
    Plug in the power, plug in the phone line to the "line" jack, put in your page(s) face down, dial number , hit "start"

    Cant receive faxes

    First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

    Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
    Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

    If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

    If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.

    If you are using the same phone line on broadband and fax, you may need to use a filter for the fax line. Also make sure the phone line is plugged into where it says "line" side of the fax and not where it says phone.

    Hope this helps...

    Sharp UX110 Fax Machine (about 10 years old!)

    Its the adf unit not sensing the original.Most systems use either a photointerrupter or a switch. Which when they go out it not feed.      But you may also have a bad original feed motor.You can always test the line by hitting the hook/monitor button,or plug a phone in the wall and listen for the tone.

    Unable to get my Intellifax 775 to receive any fax's

    Things to check: Do you have a live phone line? Are you using a dedicated fax line? You can check your fax line by using the feature hook call. Not all machine have them. Or use the hand set. If you have a live phone line now check this. Is you fax set to auto answer? If it is not you need to either find how to set it on the diplay or refer to your owners manual. If this does not work after you have done this then you possibly have a bad modem.
