FAX machines are ANALOG devices and will work best on analog lines, but with proper converter device (digital to analog and vice versa or IP to analog devices) will work with any line as long it is set right.

You must change the speed acording to your telephony service. Most commonly is 9600 (both RX and TX). and probably you have to turn off ECM.

How can you do that on L100 I don't realy know

What is ecm tx


ECM is basically error correction mode. Tx is transmission. If you're having trouble transmitting, lower the default speed to 14.4kps. Fax transmit best on analog phone lines. Digital lines will work, but unless you have a digital fax modem 14.4 is often the best you can hope for. If you're on a voice over ip max speed is 9600bps and it probably still won't work. Buy an analog phone adapter for VoIP. If you're still having transmission troubles turn off ECM.

Baud rate


1. Why 9600?

Because you are using a VOIP service it can from time to time lose connection briefly. The slower the speed the less data can be loss do to network congestion. It also gives the error correcting function of the receiving fax a better chance of filling in any lost data.
9600 is a good choice becasue the industry minimum is 9600. This means you will be able to communicate pretty much any fax thats is still tickin today. Raising the speed will get you a faster transfer but will also increase the chance that you are sending data at a faster rate than the recieving fax can send.

2. How to change the baud rate....

Press Menu/Set, 2, 0, 1.
Press ▲ or ▼ to select Basic or
Normal (or High*).
Press Menu/Set.
Press Stop/Exit.
* High is available for FAX-2910, FAX-2920
and MFC-7225 only.
Note
Basic reduces the modem speed to 9600
bps. Unless interference is a recurring
problem on your phone line, you may
prefer to use it only when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps.
High sets the modem speed at
33600 bps.

Just bought and install fax machine (MFC640cw) I can send faxes but cannot recieve any. Phone rings, it recieves but it does not print.


It was installed on a VOIP connection. The Modem speed was changed to BASIC (9600 bps) which turns the error correction mode (ECM) off. Standard speed -14400 bps which may creat errors.
Steps: Menu/set - Fax - Miscellaneous - Compatibility - BASIC - Menu/set - Stop/Exit
