My phone and fax machine are on the same phone line, but with different numbers. So when it is on F/T setting, when our phone rings, the fax picks up and starts beeping (not screaming) on the 4th ring -...


Two different numbers on the same line means you're paying for "distinctive ring" service. One pattern of ringing for one number and another pattern for the other number. Your fax's owner's manual has the instructions for training the machine to answer on the correct pattern. If the book has disappeared, download it from here:

My fax goes off periodicall when a call comes in.


It means that your fax machine is "answering" the incoming call before you pick up the handset. Usually, the factory setting on the fax machine picks up after two incoming rings. There are three ways you can address this issue: 1.) You can either change the number of rings to, say, five incoming rings to give you enough time to answer the phone before the fax machine picks up, or 2,) you can find out if your fax machine has a feature that allows for the voice hook "click over" that will allow you to override the fax when you pick up your handset, or 3.) turn your fax machine off until you need to send a fax.

If you want to investigate number 2.), then you'll need your operator's manual.

Good luck.

Settings for fax machine


Depending on the model and make of your machine, there should be an option under the fax settings of the setup menu that will allow you to either increase the number of rings before auto answer (I suggest that you increase it to at least 5 rings to give you time to answer) or that whilst you are available change the answer setting to phone. This will mean that you have to answer all calls but if there is an incoming fax (you will hear the high pitched beeeping sound) before you place the phone back on the hook press the start button.
This should solve your dilema.
