Can i turn the fax machine off on my Philips Magic 5 voice dect?
I am receiving loads of unwanted spam faxes which are using up my ink film rolls. Can I turn the fax to a manual setting so that I can only recieve faxes that I want and [obviously] am expecting? -ie the person calls me to say they are sending a fax, and i then switch to fax mode for that one fax.

Receive a fax Depending on the Auto Answer setting, your HP All-in-One can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you have set the Auto Answer option to Off, you will need to receive faxes manually. If the Auto Answer option is set to On (the default setting), your HP All-in-One will automatically answer incoming calls and receive faxes after the number of rings specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.) Receive a fax manually If you set up your HP All-in-One to receive faxes manually (the Auto Answer option is set to Off) or you answer the phone and hear fax tones, 1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray. 2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray. 3. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine. 4. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following: a. Press Fax on the control panel of your HP All-in-One. b. When prompted, press 2 to select Receive fax. c. After the HP All-in-One begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone.
First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most
Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT),
make sure it's plugged into "Line".
Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup
Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will
answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering
machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will
never grab the line.
If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the
machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up
If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing
comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a
Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test
page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and
see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or
a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In
this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.
