try setting the answer mode to auto answer. It may be in manual answer mode. Also try calling your fax number and see if it rings.

to stop the fax automatically switching to fax mode you have to set it to manual to recieve calls and dissable the fax,there should be an auto/fax and call mode, therefore when someone calls it will go to your voicemail, but that means that you will not be able to recieve a fax. Normally auto mode, will first try the fax, if no fax is recognised it will switch to normal line ringer, then if no answer it should go to your voicemail if unanswered.

How do I recieve a fax

This question is pretty vague but I will do my best to answer your question.
  • Make sure the fax is plugged into a working phone jack (cable goes to line port on fax if multiple jacks are on fax machine)
  • Set the mode on the fax to auto (if you want fax to automatically answer fax)
  • Set the mode on the fax to manual (if you want to manually tell the fax to pick up the line)
  • Set the mode on the fax to A.M. (if you are using an answer machine, you will need to reference your operators manual for this as each manufacturer uses different settings)
After doing this call you fax line with your cell phone and see if your fax rings then answers (for auto).

I can send fax but cant recieve fax

You have not told us which model fax you have but most machines have a receive mode selection. Your machine may be set to 'manual' receive. It will only receive if you pick up the phone and hit the start buton. The phone has to be connected to the machine. Look on your machine for the receive button. It may be marked as 'auto receive' and 'manual receive'. Select 'auto' so the machine will answer. It may be marked as 'fax mode' and 'tel mode' if so select 'fax mode''. It may also have a selection 'ans mode' you don't want this as it assumes that you have an answer phone connected to your machine and it waits until the machine answers before it detects incoming fax. 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.

Still can't get fax not to pick up when answering machine is connected.

if you have the fax-575 there should be a TAD setting.

This is the setting you would use if you're using an answering machine on the same phone line as your fax machine.

To set the Recieve Mode :

Press Recieve Mode. The LCD display shows your current selection.

Continue to press Recieve Mode until your new selection appears. After 2 seconds the screen returns to the date and time display, along with your new Recieve Mode setting.

The 4 Recieve modes are Fax Only, Fax/Tel, TAD:Answering Machine, Manual.

Hope this helps!!!
