I just had a similar problem... On the upper Rt. hand corner of the #'s keypad is located an "In / Out"
pushbutton switch. There are 2 options. 1.) Rec'v Mode = Tel, or 2.) Rec'v Mode = FAX. Select
FAX option.

How do i receive the fax directly to the pc without the internet ?


From what you are saying. I believe you are trying to receive (or send) a Fax directly to your PC but NOT being connected to the Internet. That is...receive a fax on your telephone line.. This IS possible but you need what we had in the old days called a "Fax Modem" on a PC card to be installed in one of the spare slots inside your PC to which you plug your Telephone line..
Windows has ALWAYS had the feature but you need the Hardware Modem to do it'
See here on how to do it. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-fax-and-scan

Just checking..we have a brother fax Intellfax 4750 and we can send out faxes however no faxes are coming in. It says receiving on the display but ringing in busy from the person sending the fax...any...


Call your fax machine from a telephone...have someone watch your fax and see if it answers...also listen on the telephone and see if you get the "tones" that a fax gives.....if your fax just keeps ringing then it just may have been set to the "tel" (telephone) mode...set it back to the Fax mode.

Cannot receive a fax but can send one out


Make sure your phone lin is plugged in the jack on the machine that says LINE not the jack that says TEL or PHONE. I have seen this before. the unit gets a dial tone and can send but will not answer.

Receiving Faxes


You will have to ask yourself the question "What has changed?" If you changed nothing, then something else has that is beyond your control. Now, you have to decide whether you are using a single telephone line for faxes and telephone, or whether you have "distinctive ring" also called "smart ring" by some companies. It is not a smart thing to use both. You can print a list of settings to see what the machine is set to do. Now if you want to use distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to the one you have chosen with the tel company. If you have chosen a double ring, and you have set your panasonic telephone to receive on 4 rings, then it will count all the rings and pick up after only 2 sequences. To see if this is the problem just remove the telephone base station from the system and then try to receive a fax.
