The sleep mode is only a power save mode. You may not have the machine in the correct fax receive mode. If the machine is on a line by itself it needs to be set to fax only, if line is shared with a telephone it needs to be in fax/telephone, if you share the machine with an answering machine it needs to be in TAD mode, and so forth. Each time you press the MODE key it will change the receive mode. Most people hit this key by mistake and change the MODE and the unit will not pick up calls. Press the MODE key until you are in the correct mode. To make sure the machine will print, press reports and then the 1, this will print a help list. If the help list prints you know that the machine works. Then check to make sure the machine is in the correct fax receive mode.

You should be able to send and recieve faxs in the sleep mode. You need to reset the machine, pull out the plug, hold down the menue key while you plug the machine in. When maintanence comes up in the display enter 01 and wait. Whwn maintanence comes up again press 99. DO NOT PRESS ANY OTHER NUMBERS OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE MACHINE BEYOND REPAIR. Your fax is now reset and completley empty, you will have to put in your name etc and sleep mode will be set to "0" minutes

These machines goe into sleep mode automaticly and should exit when they detect a ring.
You MAY have a problem with your main board.
First make sure your phone cord is plugged into the correct port. There are two, line and ext. It must be plugged into line.
You can try a factory reset if that doesn't work. Unplug unit, hold menu button, plug back in and wait for lights to blink and display to read Maintenance.
Press 0 and 1
Now press 99
Now try sending to the machine again.
If this doesn't work, you likely need the unit serviced.
