Fax machine sleep mode

I have a Brother MFC 7420 fax machine that says it is in the sleep mode. I cannot receive any faxes, and cannot get it to remove the sleep mode, although I have tried to set up the "quick receive" function and it says it is accepted

Won't fax


You have to get your answering machine and your fax to play nice. Read the instructions for both. I think I have my answering machine to pickup at three rings, and the fax to pick up at five. Don't have the fax answer first. Don't have both machines answering at the same number of rings.

All-In-One Brother 7420 not receiving faxes on home phone. Am trying "easy receive" but all it does is ring... (FYI: I cannot get distinctive ring on my phone). Have already tried Fax/Tel mode but would...


try leaving easy receive on and changing the receive mode to manual. when you pick up phone and hear the other faxs' tone, wait for your machine to take over by listening for the chirps. then hang up. if you don't hear chirps from your machine, then press *51.

BROTHER FAX MACHINE 2800


Your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode function reduces power consumption while the machine is idle. You can adjust how long your Brother machine is idle (between 00 and 99 minutes) before Sleep Mode is initiated. Please note that the default setting is 00 minutes, and the timer automatically resets itself after the Brother machine receives a fax,receives data from your PC, or makes a copy. To adjust your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode setting, please follow these steps:

1. Press MENU/SET, 1 (General Setup), 7 (Sleep Mode).

2. Use the dial pad to enter the amount of time the fax machine is idle before Sleep Mode is initiated (00 to 99 minutes).

3. Press the MENU/SET key to confirm your choice.

4. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.

NOTE: If you frequently print, copy, or fax, set the idle time long
enough to insure that you will not always have to wait for the Brother machine to warm up.

Set up to receive fax


It does not matter, it should wake up as soon as a fax is coming in, the problem is most likely that the fax set-up was improperly done. There should be a setting to tell it when to pick up, after two,three or four rings, if you have an answering machine, time date. Those need to be set-up for it to work.
