My phone and fax machine are on the same phone line, but with different numbers. So when it is on F/T setting, when our phone rings, the fax picks up and starts beeping (not screaming) on the 4th ring -...


Two different numbers on the same line means you're paying for "distinctive ring" service. One pattern of ringing for one number and another pattern for the other number. Your fax's owner's manual has the instructions for training the machine to answer on the correct pattern. If the book has disappeared, download it from here:

Our IntelliFax 4750e will not receive faxes. The line has a dial tone, and rings when called. It is set to "fax" and not "fax/tele." Suggestions?


There are a few possibilities. 1) The phone cord coming from the wall is plugged into the phone port on the fax instead of the Line port. It should be on the line port.
2) The fax have been set for distinctive ring. This causes the fax to ignore the normal incoming ring tone and is instead waiting for the distinctive ring from the phone co.
3) The modem in the fax has gone bad. If you have had any power failures or electrical storms/problems this is a possible cause.
Some models will also not answer if the machine is out of toner or paper.

Brother Intellifax 770 - can not fax out


You probably need a prefix to dial out of your office. If it's a home fax machine, you may need to dial the number "1" plus the phone number you wish to dial.

Brother Intellifax 770 fax machine failure to receive faxes


I get calls all the time about fax issues. I work for Comcast and have guided people to the right answers about third party devices. We use a digital connection. Analog is a dying medium. Most calls are concerning HP and Brother but I know others fax machines have had problems too. The new HP machines have a digital setting. HP is aware of digital issues and can help you. It is unfortunate that old fax machines are not digital but a new fax is inexpensive if you wish to buy one. Analog takes up too much space. An example: Six digital television channels can fit in the same space (bandwidth) as one analog. That is why the FCC mandated the change. The same goes for phone lines. I Google almost every problem concerning fax machines and if you go past all the upset comments you will get to the comments that offer remedy. I also wanted everyone to know that a second, no frills fax line from Comcast is very inexpensive and our way of offering a dedicated fax line intead of a distinctive ring fax option.

Setting personalized ring


Its called distintive Ring. This is the instructions from the manual -

VERY IMPORTANT
If you have Voice Mail or a TAD (Telephone Answering Device) and want to keep
one of your phone numbers dedicated only to fax calls, you must leave the fax machine
in MANUAL mode at all times while using the distinctive ring feature. Here’s why:
Manual mode will never pick up a call by itself, since it is «Neutral ». When the fax
machine is in this « neutral » mode, the Distinctive Ring Feature can be activated. The
distinctive ring feature is actually an answering mode. So, do not activate FAX ONLY
mode or FAX /TEL mode while using distinctive ring; otherwise, the fax machine will
answer calls for all the numbers.
Registering the Distinctive Ring Pattern
1
Set the fax machine to MANUAL mode.
2 Press Menu/Set, 0, 1.
3 Press to select DISTINCTIVE:SET?, and then press Menu/Set.
4 Press to select the prestored ring pattern you want to assign, and then press
Menu/Set. (You will hear each pattern as you scroll through the four patterns.)
Be sure to choose the pattern assigned by the Telephone Company.
5 Press Stop/Exit.
