Have never been able to set up fax

My adult son and I each tried to set up fax using the manual--it never worked. Now, I've just moved and can't find the manual, but I NEED the fax! Can you tell me how to set it up, or direct me to understandable instructions?

    I need the entire set-up procedure for the fax from start to finish, both sending and receiving.
    I have no idea how to begin--it was several months ago when I gave up on it. I've moved to an area where I have to pay $1.20/page for a fax. I have about 20 pages right now that I need to send,etc.etc...Can you first just get me started on the right track??

 basically, you run a phone cable from your wall to the line port on the printer, you can run a line from the phone port to an analog phone if you choose. You put your job face down or up on the printer to scan, dial your number, and hit send.

Some complications:

  1. You may need to dial 9 to get out on a company network.
  2. Digital phone systems, DSL, and IP phones don't play well with Fax lines.
  3. In an All-In-One solution, you may have to hit a FAX button to be in "Fax mode
also:-------# Press the <FAX> button to enter Fax mode.
# Press <Menu>.

# Press the right or left arrow button to select [Receive mode settings], then press the <OK> button.

# Press the up or down arrow to select the receive mode that best suits your needs(you probably want "FAX ONLY" When you want to receive only faxes automatically with your machine, or have a dedicated telephone line for FAX use only), then press <OK>.

# Press <Stop/Reset> repeatedly to return to fax standby mode. also set :--------Try setting your fax machine to DRPD (distinctive ring pattern detection) -Press menu > receive mode settings > ok > scroll down to DRPD > ok > back 
thanks.

The rest of setup is quite straightforward.

Regarding the manual, that is not available online, here is manual for MX300, that has exactly same functionalities.Check from page 32 and follow step by step instructions:

Are there special toddler beds just for boys? I'm moving my son out of his crib soon and wanted to make it fun for him.


Toddler beds are really just a mini version of our adult beds. But you can definitely buy themed beds these days and get your son something very funky if you have the budget. Check out this website that sells themed beds and has some really fun ideas for boys. http://www.toddlerbeds.com/themed-toddler-beds/971+4295112676.cfm

Unable to receive fax on 4100e


Sorry, but you have to be more specific on what are you trying to achieve and what you have done so far.
Do you want the unit to automatically answer a call and receive the fax? If so, make sure that you have switched it to FAX mode (press the MODE button repeatedly until FAX is shown on the display). You can also set it to FAX/TEL mode, whereby the machine will answer the calls and signal (ring) if it is a voice call not a fax.
The default setting is for the machine to answer after 4 rings, refer to the manual if you want to change this value (you can download the manual here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002079/FAX4100e_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf

If you want to manually receive a fax after you've picked the phone up yourself, then when you hear the other side fax beeping, simply press the START button.

Not picking up calls, not sure if my son has pressed something or there is a fault with the machine.


Look at the display. On the right there is a 3-character mode indicator. It can be:
MAN - manual pickup
FAX - automatic pickup, only fax will try to "speak" to the other side
F/T - automatic pickup, device will signal if there's no fax signal on the other side, only someone trying to speak
TAD - Telephone Answering Device
Press the "MODE" button several times and see how the display cycles through these options; just press it repeatedly until the one you want to use appears.
If however the device is set to something else than MAN and still doesn't pick up calls, then it indeed might be faulty.

Wont accept faxes


Sounds silly, but since you moved have you updated your phone number with those who are faxing? Are you sure the phone line is plugged into the correct jack? Have you tried calling the number yourself? Does it ring? Have you tried manually answering? Do you have DSL- are you using the proper filter??

How to use seat belt with seat


Here is the link to the product page for the seat; http://www.evenflo.com/Default.aspx?tabid=203&productid=2b49c217-5716-4e6a-bf7a-0895dd0fe596 click on "demo" and you get a few videos showing how to install etc. Check this link for FAQs about the model; https://plweb.evenflo.com/faqs.aspx?catid=9&subcatid=806 and this link for the full user manual; https://plweb.evenflo.com/replacement_parts.aspx Basically what evenflo say is that if you can't teach the child not to climb out, you need a different type of booster with a traditional restraint. if thrown forward as described the belt should function as usual for an adult, assuming the belt is correctly positioned on the child. Contact evenflo on; http://www.evenflo.com/Home/ContactUs/tabid/175/Default.aspx if you have any doubts at all. They can also point you towards a qualified installer who can verify the safety or otherwise of your setup. Sorry if not great news, hope it helps keep your son safe :)
