The fax machine keeps freezing at random times. Everything else seems fine. I couldn't fix it but when I turn it off at the main switch, and turn it back on, it works again. However, over a few hours, the machine freezes again.

While receiving a fax you shouldnt pick up the handset, but if u pick accidently then u will not recieve fax and hence u will hear an engage tone. If you are using a single line for both tel and fax then the party who is sending the fax should pre-inform you that it is a fax call so that when it rings you dont pivk up the handset.
You can also check your line weather it is working properly by using a normal telephone. This should be the first step rather, make calls to confirm it.
The last option is Power off the tel/fax machine for 3min completely and then try again.Also make sure the tel/fax is in tel mode and not in fax mode. Try to assign it in both modes.
If still you are not clear then the mannual which comes along with should help you, If still you cannot figure it out, Then you can call your service provider for help, they should definetely help you out.
The book says
No fax detected The product answered the incoming call but
did not detect that a fax machine was calling.
This could be really tricky. The missed faxes could be just random wrong number or recorded sales calls that are dialing you machine.
If you are sure they are fax machines calling then we get into phone line issues and that sort of thing. If you get static or noise on the line it can affect your machines ability to hear the other machine. I saw somewhere tha replceing the cord form the wall to the fax helped some people with a similar problem.
You can always try turning the machine off and unplugging it for awhile this is a common suggetion from HP for almost any product with a problem.
Hope this helps
The screen on your fax machine displays how the machine is set to receive calls. TEL MODE means the machine will not auto-answer incomming calls and will operate as a normal telephone device, it will still however be able to send a fax in this setting.
Place your message on the original tray and pick up the handset, dial the number and when the distant machine answers press the start key or ask for their fax machine and when you hear the high pitched fax tone press start.
There is a button on the panel that will allow you to change the reception mode of your machine to the other settings.
Your machine is of a model that doesn't come into this country so I have no manuals to forward you. You can try however to access the SHARP web site www.sharp.ae
Hope this helps you
