You can set your fax machine to answer in 1-15 rings or you can set it to MANUAL so that to get a fax you will have to press START.

No fax machine can actually tell the diference between a phone call or a fax coming.in.

There are devices called fax/phone switches, but they are unreliable.

If you got hit with a power surge from a lightning strike, it can come into a device from the AC outlet OR the telephone line. I suspect the modem (needed for FAX) section of your machine is fried. If this is in a home office, you should really have a 'whole house' surge protector installed to avoid business interruptions.
We have the Intermatic IG-1300-2T; for 4 telephone line protection it is : IG-1300-4T
Simple to install in the main breaker box and both include 5 years of insurance for losses of $10,000.
You can see them here:
Intermatic Surge Arrestors
The 4 line model (4T) is currently on sale.

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.

    1) did you dial correctly?
    2) are you in an office or in your own home?

    a) if you are in an office, you may have to dial a 9 or someother number to dial out before you can type in your original fax number.

    b) if you are in your home, then its a number of things: Fax machine not connected with phone lines properly is one big supect. Check your phone cables to make sure that the fax machine is properly connected.

    Brother Intellifax 770 - can not fax out


    You probably need a prefix to dial out of your office. If it's a home fax machine, you may need to dial the number "1" plus the phone number you wish to dial.

    Resetting the phone number currently displayed on the top of the page


    On your fax control panel, press the MENU button. Choose either INITIAL SET-UP or FAX SET-UP, from the display. You should be able to scroll through the settings until you come to either HEADER, TITLE, NAME, STATION ID., or PHONE NUMBER. You can then use the number and letter keys to change the title and phone number.
