Re: Sender Id

Sender ID ecblank.gif ecblank.gif dot.gif ecblank.gif This is a descriptive title that identifies the sender -- usually the location of your fax machine or the name of your company or office. It is printed at the top of every fax you send. You can enter up to 32 characters. The first 16 characters will also be used as your Personal ID, which may appear on the displays or reports of other fax machines you are communicating with

Setting the TSI/CSI and Sender ID ecblank.gif ecblank.gif dot.gif ecblank.gif1 Press Menu/Exit to enter the menu.
2 Input speed access number 02. 3 Input up to 20 numbers and characters (0-9/Hyphen/ Space/+), press Enter. 4 Press Menu/Exit.

We have a FAX-2820. this is a dumb question, but does the fax header line come from the sender when we are receiving the fax? Does a header go out on any fax we would send out?

Yes, The fax header should show you who sent the fax to you. Every fax is supposed to have a terminal ID (senders fax number and Name)

Caller ID problem with KX-FHD332

Your fax machine does not actually have CALLER ID, it reads what the sending fax machine has programmed into it. If it was never entered in, you won't see it.

I want to send a fax message using Brother 2820 fax machine, but I don't want the receiver to see my phone number when he receives the fax message print out. Is there any way I can do this?

The FAX machine will print the Tel number that has been programmed in your machine. It does not print on the basis of the caller ID received. So i think if you remove the number programmed in your fax machine

Brother 4100e Fax Problem - Caller ID won't work with Fax Machine

Usually, fax machines don't have caller ID capability.. If the sender's fax number appears on the faxes you receive, it's just that they have programmed it into their fax machine as a header.

Manual Doesn't Work Either!

Fax machines usually don't have Caller ID. If you see the phone number on received faxes its because the sender has programmed it into their fax machine.

Intermittent problem of faxes not being rec'd from various areas

After a detailed discussion on chat, we got disconnected before accepting payment. This is not a problem with your fax, as it seems to be receiving most calls fine. I suggest printing out a report - Menu/Set, 2, 0, 2 - of caller ID history and having the phone company look into it further. Either there is a problem with your phone line, or someone is prank calling your fax from outside of your caller ID service area. Both are problems for the phone company to fix.

Fax Numbers-Memory?

Unfortunately that is a function of the sending unit. If they did not program their number in, then you won't have a record. If this is a persistent problem, you may want to sign up for Caller ID. Even if they put the paper in upside down, your fax will still print a head on top of the page with the information they have programmed. If they program a wrong fax number, then all you will have is a wrong number. Wish I have better new for you. Ed
