This is a known problem with some of these 4100's. you have to have the firmware/flash rom upgraded via brother. upgrade to flash rom version M. best done by an authorized service center. contact brother customer support and see if they can help or if you have an authorized service center around close, i would call and speak to a tech.

How do I reset the time on the fax machine. The time showing is not correct its out about 15 minutes

Faxes are more than 15 minutes out of date. More like a decade plus.

But if you insist, go back to menu, setup, station, then reset date and time.

Cloc gains time

well without the make and model number I can only answer generally , most clock radios use the power line to sync the time base (60 hertz=60 seconds = 1 minute=60 minutes=1 hour) , but they use a internal time base generator when running on battery back-up (that's not so accurate) , I had one some time back that a customer plugged into a switched outlet (unknown to them) in there room and it did exactly the same thing it gained about seven minutes every day , me id check the outlet its plugged into to see if its on all the time (a quick test 4 this is to remove battery back up ) clock will then flash to be reset if you come back later to see it when the power was shut off

How do I change the time on the Brother 2820 fax?

This was taken directly from the Brother 2820 Manual:

Setting the Time

When the machine is not in use it will display the date and time. If you set up the Station ID the date and time displayed by your machine will be printed on every fax you send. If there is a power failure, you may have to reset the date and time. No other settings will be affected.

1 Press Menu/Set, 0, 2.
[2. Date/Time]
2 Enter the last two digits of the year.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Enter two digits for the month.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 09 for September,
or 10 for October.)
4 Enter two digits for the day.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 06 for 6th.)
5 Enter the time in 24-Hour format.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 15:25 for 3:25 P.M.)
6 Press Stop/Exit.
The LCD now shows the date and time
whenever the machine is idle in Fax
When the machine is in Sleep mode, the
LCD shows Sleep. (See Sleep Time on
page 2-8.)

Turning on Automatic Daylight Savings Time

You can set the machine to change automatically for Daylight Savings Time. It will reset itself forward one hour in the Spring and backward one hour in the Fall. Make sure you have set the correct date and time in the Date/Time setting.

1 Press Menu/Set, 1, 5.
[5. Auto Daylight]
2 Press Up Arrow or Down Arrow to select On (or Off).
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.

How do i set the time and date

Note If you press Start Fax Color but the sender sent the fax in black and
white, the HP all-in-one prints the fax in black and white.
Set the date and time
You can set the date and time from the control panel. When a fax is transmitted, the
current date and time are printed along with the fax header. The date and time format
is based on the language and country/region setting.
Note If your HP all-in-one loses power, you will need to reset the date and time.
1 Press Setup.
2 Press 4, and then press 1.
This selects Basic Fax Setup and then selects Date and Time.
3 Enter the month, day, and year by pressing the appropriate numbers on the
keypad. Depending on your country/region setting, you might enter the date in a
different order.
The underline cursor is presented initially beneath the first digit; it automatically
advances to the next digit when you press a button. The time prompt
automatically appears after you enter the last digit of the date.
4 Enter the hours and minutes.
5 If your time is displayed in the 12-hour format, press 1 for AM, or 2 for PM.
The new date and time settings appear on the control panel display.

Problem with time staying

From Brother Support Website.....
PPF4100 (Clock Gains ½ hour)
The LCD clock on the PPF4100 gains a half hour every 24 hours. Units affected were manufactured between January 2004 and April 2004. The machines manufactured after s/n D4J419125 have the new firmware already installed from the factory.

Machine will need to be taken to a service center and have a firmware upgrade done.

Sometimes when this machine loses power it goes to a default setting (flashing time and date) You will need to got to the user parameters and reset the time and date. If you refer to your user manual it will tell you how to do this.

Hope this helps...
