FAX 4100. Can't send fax, not sure if I can receive

My hard drive recently crashed, and I had to reload the drivers. I went on line and downloaded one for your Intellifac 4100. I'm able to produce copies, but cannot send a fax. I may have screwed up the connentions when I was reinstalling the router. Any ideas?

I have an intellifax 4100. I can send out faxes but I can't receive any. It's not giving me any sign that someone is sending me a fax.


Hello.

Typically, the problem is caused by a faulty phone line (even though you can make calls and send FAXes). Contact your telephone/telecom provider for their assistance.
Hope this helps.

We can receive faxes but not send


Make sure the phone line is plugged into the line jack, not the yel jack. Also make sure the machine is set to fax on the buttons in the top right of control panel

We can send faxes but we can not receive faxes. The fax machine that sends the fax tell it that our line is busy. Is that a machine problem or a phone line problem?


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.

Select a Receive Mode
Choose the mode that best suits your needs by pressing the Mode button
repeatedly until the FAX and FAX/TEL lights show the setting you want to use.
Manual
You must answer every call yourself.
The Brother machine must be started manually
to receive faxes.
Fax
For use with a dedicated fax line.
Every call is answered as a fax.
Fax/Tel
For receiving fax and voice calls on one line.
The FAX answers every call and receives a fax or
double rings for you to pick up a voice call.
TAD
For use with an answering device.
The TAD answers every call and stores voice messages.
Fax messages are printed.

NEED THE MACHINE TO ANSWER WHEN THE PHONE SENDS THE SIGNAL.


After making my post, I went to the official Brothers website for the 4100 FAQs and "Operating Instructions." Here's what I found. Set your 4100 set to the "Fax/Tel" mode. Press "Menu", then the number 2 (Fax), then number 1(Set-up Receive), then number 1 again (Ring Delay). Use right arrow key to increase. Once increased, press the "Set" key. You'll see the message "Accepted." Now press the "Stop" key to exit "Menu." This will now give you up to 4 rings before the fax auto answers. Inorder to send a signal by phone to remote start the fax just follow the instructions I copied directly from Brothers instructions for the 4100: If you answer the call on an extension phone (this is any phone plug into a phone jack on the same line) and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or just silence (manual fax), press *51(remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the Brother machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up. I don't have anyone that can send me a fax right now to test it out. I'll have to try it in the morning. Hope this works for you.

Can send but can't receive faxes.


if your fax is on a dedicated fax line, make sure your display says "fax only" or "auto". if not on a dedicated line, you'll have to give more info on what kind of hook up you have. in other words, is there an answering machine hooked inline, etc.

good luck,

Vonage vs Brither 4100


Have you called your own fax line and just listened to the fax hand shake? might sound simple but I have called fax lines before and it just rang, or it was busy or static, if your not getting a clear fax hand shake, then it is the phone line, if there is no answer you may have turned your fax to manual receive mode, If you don't know how it should sound call a friends business fax line and listen to it. I have actually gone out to businesses that reported send or receive problems just to call the line and listen to a disconnect message, that would make it difficult to fax.
