"cannot send or receive faxes to one particular number, but is able to send and receive faxes with other numbers"
If your machine can receive a fax transmission from one number, it will receive from all numbers.
If your machine can send to all but not to one particular number, please check that there is a fax machine there to receive it.
You can try to send manually and listen for beeps from the other fax -if one is present- then push the START button to initiate transmission. If their machine is in working order, the transmission should start. (After the initial 'handshake' of course.)
The document does not feed into the machine. Be sure the document is not wrinkled, and you are putting it in correctly. Check that the document is the right size and not too thick or too thin. (See document types and sizes on page 43). You cannot receive faxes automatically. Check if "TEL" appears on the right side of the display. In TEL mode, you cannot receive a fax automatically. Be sure the handset is seated on the cradle properly. The machine cannot receive faxes manually. Do not hang up the handset before pressing Start/Enter to receive a fax. The machine does not send anything. Check that the document is loaded face down. Send should show up in the display after it dials. Check if the machine to which you are sending can receive your fax.
Yes, you must set up your fax machines like this: The receiving fax must be set to auto receive and the telephone line must be inserted in the "line" input. A line must then be connected from the "Tel" to the "Line" of the Transmitting machine, which must be set to "manual receive." This is not really a satisfactory way of doing things as you can't send and receive 2 machines on the same line together. A much better way is to have 2 lines. with a machine attached to each. Get the tel company to put "No answer transfer" on the line as an accesory. Give them the number of the fax machine that transmits. Make it "manual receive" Now you have a versatile system that you can also use the office telephone with.
If it is properly connected to the jack in the machine and the wall, and it won't send OR receive...then it's NOT a simple problem, because nothing else need be done for the machine to at least "send" a fax.
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.

Call your cell phone from the fax machine and check the caller ID to make sure that it is the correct number for your fax machine. Next, call the fax machine from you cell phone, and make sure the fax machine rings. Problems like these are almost always a phone line issue, not the machine.
