Need to set up machine was given as gift

There are two ways to use a fax machine in your home or office. You can either have a standalone fax machine, or you can use your computer for this purpose. Either way, setup is very simple. You don't even have to be a tech guru to do it. First, decide if you'd like to have a separate phone line for your faxes so they don't interrupt communications at the office. If so, have the phone company install the line before you get started with fax setup.
Setting Up a Traditional Machine
  • Step 1.Set your fax machine on a flat and even surface. Plug the power cord into the wall. Fill the paper tray and slide it into the front of the machine.
  • Step 2.Plug one end of a standard phone cable into the phone jack and the opposite end into the port on the fax machine. It's usually on the back or the side.
  • Step 3.Turn on the machine and pick up its telephonemag-glass_10x10.gif. If you don't hear a dial tone, check your phone cable to make sure it's secure. Then turn to the LCD screen and start programming your options. Since all machines are different, see the instructions in the owner's manual.

    Fax machine and ans machine coming on together

    Fax machines normally take priority over answering machines.
    there should be in your menu and fax settup a place to select fax/ans to allow the machine to know it has another device on it.
    I suspect that your fax is set up in fax mode only. Somehow it got changed, or changed itself.
    Check for the setting on your machine that allows you to operate both. You may have to call brother for the right setup also.
    Its find their support number there. Good luck,

    First it would seem as though the default setting may have all been changed. The NO SERVICE message is given because the machine menu setup is not able to comply with present hardware configuration. Such as the menu setup calling for the incoming fax to be forwarded to an email only you have not connected the machine to an internet router.

    The most likely thing to do that will fix the fax not being automatically answered is this.

    Check this menu setting. Press the <RESOLUTION RECEPTION MODE> Button (with no document in feeder) until AUTO appears in the display to set auto recieve faxes.

    This will auto answer a fax after the set number of rings (different menue option). As someone may have changed this it can be from 2 to 5 rings. Note there is also a pseudo ring tone which can also be set although this will only ring on the machine itself.

    This is in case the machine auto answers then finds the incming call is not a fax and so need to altert you to take the call.

    Now this is a very complex machine so CAUTION when using in a doctors surgury. It is capable of BROADCASTING all the faxes to any other fax machine or email adresses either by design or the office 'meddler'.

    You should set the SECURITY password option and keep a copy of this safe to avoid unauthorised access or changes which could then forward your faxes to unknown destinations.

    You need to take a week off to read the manual as it is not easy to plough through.

    Here is a link to the MANUAL also what is laughing called a 'setup guide'. My advice is to first disconnect the phone line, then go through each menu setting the DEFAULT value. Then try it, then change the setting to suit you. This is no ordinary fax machine.

    You will of course want to selct the English language GB version of those listed. Then enter the anti-spam code which will download the PDF documents.

    Any problem with this such as the link disapearing then i will redo it.
