I have a Brother Intellifax 1270e and am wondering if I can program it for outgoing faxes only.


See manual section 5-1
http://www.manualnguide.com/dl/11582/

you want to set receive to manual so that any incoming faxes will have to be manually received.

To change to this setting press "receive mode" until manual appears.

Let me know if this works for you.

PLEASE HELP ME SET UP MY BROTHER FAX-560 TO RECEIVE FAX AFTER 4 RINGS. THANKS, JOANNE


You should check the manual for the fax machine. It gives detailed description of how to do it.

The information you need is on Chapter 5 - Set Up Receive.

In short, you will have to:
(1) set the Answer Mode to "Fax/Tel";
(2) set the Ring Delay to 4 (that's the default value, so do nothing unlese you have changed the value before. Values are 0 to 4)
(3) Set F/T Ring Time

If you don't have the manual, you can get it from ManualsOnline at:
http://office.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/brother/brother_intellifax_560_ppf560.html
Right click The blue "Get This Manual" button anda save the file to you computer.

For a limited time, you can also find a copy here:

I have never had a problem with my fax machine until recently. All of a sudden, the machine rings and rings when a fax is trying to come in; it will show call pickup; to receive the fax, I have to pick up...


The machine has probably been taken off of auto-answer. You can download the manual from Brother's website here:

http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?ProductID=PPF2800&ProductGroupID=2&WT.cg_n=Support&WT.cg_s=Manuals

Then you can verify it's set up properly. If the problem is due to some failure in the fax machine (always possible) you can find service options on Brother's site as well.

Intellifax 4100


First the link to the manual

http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_IntelliFax_4100e_EN_250.PDF

The date and time are set up under general set up. Under that menu there is also TONE/PULSE dial mode setting if you have accidently changed this to pulse it will cause issue. Change it to tone if you have and this will resolve the problem. Pulse is the old style phone system.

The machine is probably set to "manual receive." Check the receive mode. In "Manual" mode the machine will ring until the start" button is pressed. Fax mode will allow the machine to receive faxes as will the "Auto" mode which will allow both faxes and telephone calls automatically.

CANNOT RECEIVE A FAX


Slim1234,
          A multitude of problems might cause receive problems, and the User's Guide has no "receive Problems" section under troubleshooting - so here goes:

        If I had to guess right off the bat, your problem is probably
that the FAX is in "FAX Storage" mode, and is out of memory.
In this mode, it will print FAXes until it runs out of memory.
See problem "g" below.

   a. Voice mail active on the line - if voice mail and FAX-2820 are
       set to answer the line on the same number of rings, there's
       no way to know which will answer first.

   b. Voice mail active on line - if voice mail is set to answer in
       fewer rings than the FAX, then the FAX will always lose
       (but you'll have no problems Xmitting).

   c. Call Waiting active on the line - the call waiting "boop" will
       kill incoming FAXes (and outgoing FAXes too, but your
       personnel will retry the outging ones until they succeed
       and you may only hear complaints about incoming FAXes).

   d. Your FAX-2820 is set to "Manual" or "External TAD" mode.
       Reset it to "FAX only" or "FAX/Tel" mode (depending on
       your office use of the FAX telephone line).
       How to do this: Menu/Set,0,1 <up/down to select mode>
                              press Menu/Set.
   NOTE: your LCD display tells you your receive mode:
       Mine says "Sleep 22:08 Fax", telling me I'm in "FAX only"
       mode, and its 10:08 PM.

   e. You've set the FAX to RING DELAY - if so, the FAX
       must win. Setting ring delay to 00 tells the FAX to answer
       the line silently (an advantage for a busy MD's office).
       How to change this: Menu/Set,2,1,1
       Ref: FAX-2820 User's Guide p.4-2

   f. You dont have a shared (FAX/human) line set to
     "Easy Receive"; if someone answers the call and
      Easy Receive is off, then they need to press START on
      the fax machine front panel or dial *51 and hang up.
      How to change it: Menu/Set,2,1,3
      REF: Fax-2820 User's Guide p. 4-2

  g. You may be set up for "FAX storage."  In this mode, received
      FAXes will be stored (and printed) until you run out of
      memory (quickly done on a Brother FAX-2820), then you
      get nada (but sending FAXes still works).
      How to reset this: Menu/Set,2,5,1 <up/down>
      REF: Fax-2820 User's Guide p.6-2

  h. You may have set up FAX forwarding.  In this mode, sending
      FAXes will work fine, but all incoming FAXes willl be sent
      to another telephone number.
      How to turn it off: Menu/Set,2,5,1 <up/down>

      If this laundry list of (sending OK, Receiving dead) scenarios
 doesn't resolve the problem, email your FAX number to me
and we'll do some cross-country FAX debugging.

                                  Dave in tech support
                                  amityjones71@gmail.com
P.S.
      The above features may have been set remotely by a
   nefarious (or somewhat knowledgeable) individual - remember
   that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing (even for
   FAXes). See (extensive) remote programming instructions
   on p.6-6 of the User's Manual.

        To print out the caller ID list - and possibly find out the
   source of the remote programming:
   Menu/Set,2,0,3 <up/down to "print report">, Menu/Set,
    Start, <Caller ID report prints>, Stop/Exit
   Ref: Brother Fax-2820 User's Guide p.A-3
