I Cannot Receive a Fax - the pages are blank


A second line isn't needed, this wouldn't cause blank pages to be printed. This could cause fax's not to be received if the line is in use. There could be 2 causes of blank fax's. Either the obvious which is the person sending the fax is faxing the document the wrong way up. Or the fax board on your copier has a malfunction. Because of the copier's age, this seems likely, although i hope not. hope this helps.

Hp officejet 6500 instructions for receiving a fax? Thanks


You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a legal-size fax and the device is not currently set to use legal-size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction feature, the device prints the fax on two pages.
NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the
device memory until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory.
This section contains the following topics:
• Receive a fax manually
• Set up backup fax reception
• Reprint received faxes from memory
• Poll to receive a fax
• Forward faxes to another number
• Set the paper size for received faxes
• Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
• Block junk fax numbers
• Receive faxes to your computer (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac)
Receive a fax manually
When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive a manual fax.
NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones.
You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:
• Directly connected to the device (on the 2-EXT port)
• On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the device
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the ADF, then the device will not be able to receive incoming faxes.
To receive a fax manually
1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray.
2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there
are documents in the document feeder, then receiving the fax will be
unsuccessful.
3. Do one of the following to answer a fax manually:
• Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the
incoming call before the device answers.
• Turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the device does not automatically
answer incoming calls.
4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine.
5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:
a. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color on the device control panel.
b. When prompted, select Fax Receive.
NOTE: Depending on your country/region, the device might receive the fax
automatically when you hear fax tones from the sending fax machine.
6. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.

Fax connection


To send a fax, you will have to configure the settings. here are the steps you can follow;

Remote Fax Options;
You can only use one remote fax option at a time:
Fax Forwarding—OR—Paging—OR—Fax Storage—OR—PC FAX Receive—OR—Off.
You can change your selection at any time (Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1).

Setting up Fax Forwarding

When you select Fax Forward, your MFC stores the received fax in the memory. The MFC will then dial the fax number you’ve programmed and forwards the fax message.
  1. Press "Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1".
  2. Press ▲ or ▼ to select "Fax Forward". Press "Menu/Set". The LCD will ask you to enter the fax number to which faxes will be forwarded.
  3. Enter the forwarding number (up to 20 digits). Press "Menu/Set".
  4. Press ▲ or ▼ to select "Backup Print:On or Backup Print:Off". Press "Menu/Set".
If you select "Backup Print:On", the MFC will also print the fax at your MFC so you will have a copy if there is a power failure before it is forwarded.
5. Press "Stop/Exit".

Programming your pager number When Paging is selected, your MFC dials the pager number you’ve
programmed, and then dials your Personal Identification Number (PIN). This activates your pager so you will know that you have a fax
message in the memory.
1. Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2. Press ▲ or ▼ to select Paging.
3 . Enter your pager phone number
followed by # # (up to 20 digits). Press Menu/Set.
Do not include the area code if it is the same as that of your MFC. For example, press 1 8 0 0 5 5 5 1 2 3 4 # #.
4. If your pager needs a PIN, enter the PIN, press #, press Redial/Pause, enter your fax number followed by # #. Press Menu/Set. (For example, press 1 2 3 4 5 # Redial/Pause 1 8 0 0 5 5 5
1 2 1 2 # #) —OR— If you do not need a PIN, press Redial/Pause, enter your fax number followed by # #. Press Menu/Set. (For example, press Redial/Pause 1 8 0 0 5 5 5 1 2 1 2 # #)
5. Press Stop/Exit.
■ You cannot change a Paging number or PIN remotely.
■ If you have set Paging, a backup copy of the received fax will
automatically be printed at the MFC.

Setting Fax Storage
If you select Fax Storage, your MFC stores the received fax in the
memory. You will be able to retrieve fax messages from another
location using the Remote Retrieval commands.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
Fax Storage.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.
Setting PC Fax Receive
If you select PC Fax Receive, your MFC will temporarily store your
received fax messages in its memory, and then automatically send
the faxes to the PC. You can then use your PC to view and store
these faxes.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
PC Fax Receive.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
Backup Print:On or
Backup Print:Off.
Press Menu/Set.
4 Press Stop/Exit.
If you have turned on Fax Storage, a backup copy will
automatically be printed at the MFC.
  • Before you can set up PC Fax Receive you must install the
MFL-Pro Suite software on your PC, make sure your PC is connected and turned on. (For details, see Using Brother PC-FAX software on page 5-1 in Software User’s Guide on
the CD-ROM.)
  • If you select Backup Print:On, the MFC will also print the fax at your MFC so you will have a copy if there is a power failure before it is sent to the PC.
■ If you get an error message and the MFC cannot print the faxes in memory, you can use this setting to transfer your faxes to your PC.
Turning off Remote Fax Options If you set the Remote Fax Options to Off and there are faxes in your MFC’s memory, the LCD will give you two options.
  • If you press 1, all unprinted faxes will be printed and erased
before the setting turns off. If a backup copy has already been
printed it will not be printed again.
  • If you press 2, the memory will not be erased and the setting will be unchanged.
Setting your Remote Access Code

The remote access code lets you access the Remote Retrieval features when you are away from your MFC. Before you use the remote access and retrieval features, you have to set up your own code. The default code is inactive code (--- ).
  1. Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 2.
  2. Enter a three-digit code using numbers 0-9 or . Press Menu/Set. (The preset ‘ ’ cannot be changed.)
  3. Press Stop/Exit. Do not use the same code which is set in your Fax Receive Code ( 51) or Telephone Answer Code (#51). You can change your code at any time by entering a new one.
  4. If you want to make your code inactive, press Stop/Exit in Step 2 to restore the inactive setting (--- *).
