Re: How do you set the number of rings before thepick up?
I don't know for that particular model, but it should be in the manual somewhere. If not, what I like to do is just play around with the settings until I find the right one. If the fax machine has a screen on it, that should be much easier.

To have the machine answer faxes and record voice messages unattended change the answering mode to message centre. If you are home and pick up the phone , but it is a fax, not a phone call push *91 on the phone you answered on, and hang-up the phone. the fax machine will tyhen start receiving.
DR mode means that the distigntive ring feature has been activated so it will not let you change receive mode. You need to turn off DR first. Press menu/set then 2, 0, 2, then press the down arrow till you see distigntive off then press menu/set.
Now you should be able to change the receive mode to fax only!
Not familar with MNL, does sound like you have the receive mode set to manual. set to auto anser or answer machine. In manual mode the phone will ring until you tell the fax to receive. In auto mode after so may ring which you set, the fax will pick up...
Pick up the receiver and see if you hear a fax tone noise. If so then push the start button and hang up. Is this machine on a dedicated line or shared with the main phone number? Sometimes some people will pick up the receiver on their fax machine dial the fax number and wait for a tone before sending. If this is the case the machine can not recognize that is a ax. Make sure your machine is set for auto receive if it is on a dedicated line.
