Hey there,

You may have to change the dialling mode from tone to pulse or vice versa, (probably the former rather than the latter):
1. Press Function/Set, 1,5
2. Press < or > to select Tone or Pulse and press Function/Set.
3. Press Stop to exit.

Or you may have to set your area code:
1. Press Function/Set, 0, 2.
2.Use the dial pad to enter you area code and press Function/Set.
3. Press Stop to exit.

Easy Receive:
When you use this feature, you don't have to press Start when you answer a fax call and hear calling beeps. Just hold the handset and wait a few seconds.When you see RECEIVE on the fax screen or when you hear 'chirps' throught the handset of an extension phone connected to another wall jack, just replace the handset, and your machine does the rest. Selecting 'ON' allows the fax machine to receive fax calls automatically, even if you lift the handset of an extension or external phone. Selecting SEMI lets the machine receive the call only if you've answered it at the fax machine. Selecting OFF means you'll have to activate the fax machine yourself, by pressing Start or by pressing * 5 1 if you are not at your machine.
If you've set the feature to ON, but your fax machine doesn't automatically connect a fax call when you lift an external or extension phone handset, press the Fax Receive code * 5 1. At the fax machine, lift the handset and press Start.
1. Press Function/Set, 2, 3.
2. Press < or > to select ON, SEMI or OFF and press Function/Set.
3. Press Stop to exit.

For faxes that you think are still in the memory:
1. Press Function/Set, 8, 4.
2. Press Start.
3. Press Stop.

For manual sending of faxes, pick up the handset, wait for dial tone, then enter the fax number, wait for the Fax tone, press Start, and hangup.
For Automatic, just place the original paper (face down!) in the ADF and enter the fax number and press Start. If you do this, it will redial automatically up to 3 times at 5 minute intervals, if the line was busy..

If you think that maybe the memory is full due to scheduled jobs building up,and thus not leaving enough memory to send or receive, then you can cancel them by doing:
1. Press Function/Set, 4. Any waiting jobs appear on the display. If there are no jobs waiting, the screen displays NO JOB WAITING.
2. If you have more than 2 jobs waiting, press < or > to select the job you want to cancel and press Function/Set.
3. Press 1 to cancel, or 2 to exit without cancelling.
4. Press Stop to exit.

That's enough options for you to be going on with I guess :)

Good Luck and Season's Greetings :)

Look in the manual for setting up receiving faxes. There is a default number of rings setting that will make your machine capture the phone line after a specified number of rings.
