Re: smart ring

Good question. I thinking your service provider (Bellsouth, Western Bell, etc..) might know this. I'm sure they have run across this before. I know that your fax machine will need to support this feature. For example, Brother Fax machines have a Distinctive Ring function on them for just this purpose. Do you have your use manual for your fax machine? It should tell you if it supports Distinctive Ring.

Receiving Faxes

You will have to ask yourself the question "What has changed?" If you changed nothing, then something else has that is beyond your control. Now, you have to decide whether you are using a single telephone line for faxes and telephone, or whether you have "distinctive ring" also called "smart ring" by some companies. It is not a smart thing to use both. You can print a list of settings to see what the machine is set to do. Now if you want to use distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to the one you have chosen with the tel company. If you have chosen a double ring, and you have set your panasonic telephone to receive on 4 rings, then it will count all the rings and pick up after only 2 sequences. To see if this is the problem just remove the telephone base station from the system and then try to receive a fax.

Audible ring has changed/machine won't answer when called

It is to do with "smart ring" feature or in your area called "distinctive ring" feature. The machine won't receive unless the ring pattern matches your distinctive ring pattern. If you are not using that feature, then you must turn the feature off. Then set your receive mode to "fax tel" mode if it is your only line.

Fax query

This sounds like you have smart ring on your home line. Smart ring lets you have 2 seperate telephone numbers, One for fax and another for phone, but 2 distinctive rings all one one line. Check your manual to see if you have this feature and to set it up.
