Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax

1 Answer


I recently purchased a Brother 4100e fax machine. I have set up some AUTO DIAL numbers and they seem to be working fine. The problem to resolve: I am trying to both store SPEED DIAL NUMBERS and set up GROUPS. I have entered approximately 45 fax numbers and names so far. Each time I pressed "SET" after entering a name & number, I got the response "ACCEPTED". However, when I print out the AUTO DIAL report, only the first SPEED DIAL I put in appears on the list. While the other 44 names / numbers are there, they do not show up in the AUTO-DIAL REPORT LIST. For the other entered names and fax numbers, I noticed that each blank space location appears to have what looks like a small?scale block letter I. Questions: 1. Did I do something wrong? If so, what did I do wrong? 2. Why aren?t the other inputted names and numbers showing up on the AUTO-DIAL REPORT LIST.

How do I send one fax to multiple receipents?

you need to set up a group to send to. So if the group is always changing this may not help much.

Groups allow you to send the same fax message to multiple numbers (broadcasting). You can store the Groups on your One-Touch keys or SpeedDial locations and then broadcast by pressing a One-Touch key and Fax Start or by pressing Search/Speed Dial, the three digit location and FaxStart. First, you will need to store each fax number you wish to includein your Group as either a One-Touch or Speed Dial number. Then, you can combine these numbers into a group. Finally, you can have up to six Groups, or you can assign up to 131 numbers to one large Group. Each Group uses one One-Touch key or Speed Dial location. To set up a Group, please follow these steps:

1. Press Menu, 2 (Fax), 3 (Set Auto Dial), 3 (Setup Groups).

2. Press the One-Touch key on which you wish to store the Group or pressSearch/Speed Dial followed by the three-digit Speed Dial location where you wish to store the Group. The LCD will read SETUP GROUP:G0 ENTER & SET.

How to specify fax machine to dial '9' before fax number?

Hello ilay,

This procedure is from the Brother FAX-4100e FAQ link:

Storing Speed Dial numbers:
You can store Speed Dial locations on your machine(*). Once you have programmed the Speed Dial number on your machine, you can dial the number by pressing Search/Speed Dial, #(Pound Sign), the Speed Dial number, and then Fax Start.
*The number of locations you can store varies by machines. Please refer to the User's Guide for your machine. The latest User's Guide is available in the Manuals section.

To store Speed Dial numbers follow the steps listed below:

1. Press Menu.
2. Press the left or right arrow key to select Fax and press Set.
3. Press the left or right arrow key to select Set Auto Dial or Set Quick Dial, and press Set.
4. Press the left or right arrow key to select Speed-Dial and press Set.
5. Use the dial pad to enter the location (Speed Dial number) where you wish to store the number and press Set.
6. Enter the number you want to store (up to 20 digits) and press Set.

If you want to enter a pause in the dialing sequence (to wait for an outside line, for example), press Redial/Pause as you're entering digits. Pressing Redial/Pause enters a 3.5-second pause when the number is dialed, and a dash appears on the screen. If you need a pause longer than 3.5 seconds you can press Redial/Pause as many times as needed.
7. Use the dial pad to enter the name or company name (up to 15 characters) and press Set.
If you want to store the number without a name, just press Set.
8. Return to STEP 5 to store another Speed Dial number or press Stop/Exit to exit the menu.

I have a Brother IntelliFax-4100e fax that speed dial button 04 needed to be changed when we changed our phone system to include a 9 at the beginning of the number. Did that, it was 'accepted', but still...

go into menu, then to fax (hit set) then one touch speed dials (hit set) then hit the 04 one touch button and it should show you what is programmed. You can hit number 1 to change, type the number with a 9 in front of it(ie. 9+1+area code+7 digit number) then hit set and program a name for the number, hit set until the fax beeps to accept the change. You can test it with a blank cover sheet. That's how I have mine at work set up and it works fine. Hope this helps.

Use menu 2.3.2 to access the number you wish to change. Use the cursor (left and right arrows)to go to the number(s) you need to change, When the cursor is under the digit that needs changing, type in the new number. Continue this process until the number reads correctly. Press SET afterward and the new number should now be saved. Hope this answers your question. All the best!
