The tip and ring (red and green) wires in the phone line are the ones that are used in this instance and there is technically no polarity (+ or -) because the current on this line is AC. Much like household current most device will work no matter which way the plug is inserted. There are polarized plugs which only work one way just to keep everything standard. Long story short: this should not be a problem under normal conditions.

How do i connect my hp 1240 fax\printer to my computer


The fax must be connected directly to the wall phone jack. Connect any other phone line devices, such as a telephone or answering machine, to the phone jack on the back of the fax


The phone line cable used to connect the fax must be a two-conductor (wire) phone cable, like the one that shipped with the fax. The fax may fail to send or receive faxes if the phone cable has more than two conductors. To determine how many conductors the phone cable has, look at the end of the cable. Most phone cable connectors are clear and you can see the number of wires

The Rings to Answer setting determines how many times the line will ring before the fax answers. Follow the steps below to change the rings to answer setting.
  1. Press Setup , press 3 , and then press 3 again to access the Rings to Answer setting.
  2. Press the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the desired number of rings is shown in the display, press OK .


To receive faxes manually, follow the steps below.

  1. Answer the phone like you normally would a telephone call. If the incoming call is from a fax machine, you will hear beeps or fax tones.
  2. Press either Start Black or Start Color to begin receiving the fax.
  3. Hang up the phone.

We can not receive incoming faxes. The phone ring once and then clicks off. We can use the phone. We can fax outgoing. How can we receive incoming faxes?


The problem may be in your phone line.

Try another phone in place of the fax machine and call in. You may find another phone does the same thing. It's possible there is a high-resistance short on the line. At low voltages during outgoing calls this won't affect anything (or it might occasionally cause some noise). But when your phone rings there is around 100 volts present. When the phone starts to ring, the short causes the phone company's equipment to think you answered and the ringing stops, but since the machine hasn't picked up the call then disconnects. If you have the same problem with a different phone, you'll need to contact your telephone company. They can test the line to determine where the trouble is. If it's in their outside wiring (moisture in the line or other defects), they would be responsible for fixing it. If the problem is in your inside wiring they will probably charge to come out, so they can provide some troubleshooting tips.

If another phone rings in properly, there is something wrong in the fax machine's line connection circuitry. Then you'll need to see about having the machine serviced, or consider replacing it.

Line in use


Hi there, the fax machine on your all-in-one printer is really handy when it works properly. Getting your fax capability back requires a troubleshootingmag-glass_10x10.gif process that moves through the possible causes of a problem and arrives at a solution. Follow these steps to troubleshoot the fax machine on an all-in-one printer.

  • Plug the power cords in, push the power buttons on and get everything up and running. Sounds simple, but lack of power is the culprit quite often.
  • Step 2.Check for a phone connection in the correct input jack. Some printers with fax capability have more than one phone jack so you can hook up an answering machine or another phone "downstream" from the printer. Consult your instruction manual to determine the right connection for your printer.
  • Step 3.Swap out the all-in-one printer for a working phone to find out if the problem is in the phone line coming from the wall. Once you hook up the phone, you should get a dial tone if the line is working. Remember to reconnect the all-in-one printer after you're done.

    We can send faxes but we can not receive faxes. The fax machine that sends the fax tell it that our line is busy. Is that a machine problem or a phone line problem?


    Problem lies in your Receive Mode setting. If you don't have a dedicated phone line for the fax machine, you need to set it up for either Manual where you answer every call or Fax/Tel whereby the Fax machine determines if the incoming call is a fax or phone call. Instructions per Intellifax 4100 Manual.

    Select a Receive Mode
    Choose the mode that best suits your needs by pressing the Mode button
    repeatedly until the FAX and FAX/TEL lights show the setting you want to use.
    Manual
    You must answer every call yourself.
    The Brother machine must be started manually
    to receive faxes.
    Fax
    For use with a dedicated fax line.

    Fax/Tel
    For receiving fax and voice calls on one line.

    double rings for you to pick up a voice call.
    TAD
    For use with an answering device.
    The TAD answers every call and stores voice messages.
    Fax messages are printed.

    How to send fax


    you put the paper face up, type the number and then press start, the phone line needs to be in the line connection and the other side in the wall plug, you need to see if you are using a direct phone line or if it is going through something on the way, other than that it is a very easy fax to use
