Ringing while fax comes through

Everytime a fax comes through, the fax machine constantly rings! I've lost the handbook and need to know how to stop the ringing. I don't use it as a telephone so I don't need the ringer. Many thanks Donna-Marie

Re: Ringing while fax comes through

There should be a setting in the menu options, under fax setup to reduce the ring volume as well as the amount of rings before the machine picks up.

Before selecting the ring to answer, under stand what it is..
Press Menu button, scroll to fax set up with help of arrow keys, press ok button, scroll to answering mode. Select desired "auto, manual, fax & tele/fax.
What are these?
Auto: Auto aromatically tele mode will coverts in to fax mode irrespective of selected ring count. suppose if ring count selected as 4, printer will ring 4 times then stops ringing & converts in to fax mode. It doesn't matter whether it's telephone or fax.
Manual: Printer always telephone mode. To convert in to fax mode, need to press fax button while ringing.
Tele/Fax: Printer detects the incoming call type as tele(analog)or fax(digital) accordingly its will act. If its fax , line converts in fax mode with out any ring(silent detection), prints the received fax.If its telephone,printer rings as tele phone.

Will not receive faxes or copy Fax line rings but the machine says its receiving but nothing will print out and it won't copy pages either I've tried turning the machine off for up to 5 minutes,...

To begin troubleshoot,you should set the machine to basic Fax/Tel mode only.
1 If it is not illuminated in green, press (Fax). 2 Press Menu/Set, 2, 1, 2. 3 Press ? or ? to select how long the MFC will ring to alert you that you have a voice call (20, 30, 40 or 70 seconds). Press Menu/Set. 4 Press Stop/Exit. Even if the caller hangs up during the pseudo/double-ringing, the MFC will continue to ring for the set time.
After you confirm your Brother MFC-5440CN is able to receive fax then you can pick one of the 4 modes as describe on the owner manual.

Fax answer phone line

You set the machine up in the answer/fax mode, when a fax is coming in you have to press 9 on the phone to make it receive the fax if you pick up the receiver when it is a fax call.
You can also change the number of rings to answer a fax, I think the max is 7 rings.

Fax problem

I will assume this is an inbound fax.

Your fax machine has a setting for answering on a number of rings, normally between 1 - 4. Check it's settings and lower the number to meet your needs, so the fax picks-up before the answering machine.
