Hi Brad,

Press fuction 64 set.

Look at the print out for MANUAL MODE setting

Press fuction 74 set 1 set to enable MANUAL MODE

Now to receive a fax you must press START when the fax rings.

I don't think you're going to find a free manual. Check eBay.

    Nope, but you can buy a fax / phone switch from Radio Shack that will do the trick.



    The switch will answer and decide if it's a voice call or a fax call.



    If you buy one, set your fax machine back to AUTO.

How do I tell my 2820 to prepare to receive an incoming fax? My phone line and my fax line are the same number. It continues to ring but the fax machine is not answering. I have also turned the answering...


To have the machine answer faxes and record voice messages unattended change the answering mode to message centre. If you are home and pick up the phone , but it is a fax, not a phone call push *91 on the phone you answered on, and hang-up the phone. the fax machine will tyhen start receiving.

We went to a roll over system on our phone lines and now we cannot receive faxes. We can send them though.


Your roll over system is sending calls to the first line in the sequence and it does not differentiate between voice and fax. You will have to change the roll over so it does not send calls to your fax line. Your internal phone system may still use the fax line for outgoing faxes and voice calls but incoming fax calls have to be sent to the line the fax is on.

How do i set up fax to automaticely receive faxes after several rings


For a phone line dedicated only to the fax machine, the process is as follows:
  1. Press Menu/Set, 0, 1.
  2. You will see the Fax Receive window
  3. Use UP and DOWN arrows to change the setting to FAX ONLY
  4. Press Menu/Set.
  5. Press STOP/EXIT
Your fax machine will now answer every incoming call.
If the fax machine is sharing the phone line with a telephone, repeat the above steps and change from FAX ONLY to FAX/TEL This option will allow you to share the line with a phone only, not an answering machine. Once in FAX/TEL mode, the fax machine will still grab every incoming FAX call, and give a special ring (slightly different than a regular telephone ring) when it's a regular incoming phone call signaling you to answer the phone. I hope this helps with your problem. Best of luck!

Fax issues - Brother 1020e


Sounds like your phone cord is plugged into the "tel" or "phone" port on the back of the fax. It should be plugged into the "line" port.

I CAN SEND FAXES BUT NOT RECIEVE


The majority of the time, when you can send but not receive, it is a phone line issue and not the machine. Extremely rare does a machine send and not receive. So here goes the things to try and the reason. 1, Make sure the phone jack is in the "Line" jack and not the external phone jack. Believe it or not, that is the number one issue with sending and not receiving.
Next, plug a phone into the jack that the fax machine is plugged into and see if there is static.
You want to be sure in the fax \settings and advanced settings that the ECM mode is ON, and that Junk Fax ius turned OFF, Junk Fax being on will stop almost all fax from comming in.
Now, the phone line. Here is the explaination of why that can be the problem. When you send a fax, you manually make the connection to the line. When you press send a relay flips and connectes you to the phone line, therefore you have made pretty much a mechanical connection enabling the phone line, and therefore you can send.
Now, when you have an incoming fax, several conditions must me met to make the handshake and therefore connect and receive. These all have to be right in order to properly receive. The phone line voltage mist be high enough, the phone line current must be correct and there can not be much decibel loss over the line. You are making a signal connection, all those conditions must be right to receive a fax. Think of it like a TV remote with batteries that are almost dead, It still send out some signal, but it will not change channels or change the volumn,etc etc. Same principle. If the signal to the incoming fax is weak, chances are it will not connect.

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.

Brother Fax T78 wont 'ring'


Yes. try bypassing the router by plugging your phone directly into the phone jack, and have someone send you a test fax.
What happens it even now days, the majority of fax machines still use analogue phone lines, and the digital signal will mess them up, mostly because the digital lines have less power and current, and do not signal the recieve mode to switch on.
Very common occurance. Glad you mentioned the router or I would have sent you down a long winding path LOL.
You are suffering a low signal issue.
The reason you can call out is that you are manually activating the phone or fax when you remove the receiver. When you receive, it taked the proper signal strength to activate the fax modem.

Cant send fax


Recieving faxes
  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient
