The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!

My fax machine keeps going into sleep mode. How can I prevent this from happening?


you can't. you can only change the length of time before it enters sleep mode. (00-99 min). if you want to change, "menu/set" "1" "8" then enter the length in minutes from the dail pad, hit "menu/set" then "stop/exit".

My brother intellifax 4100e is not recieving faxes we can send and I called the fax it works and we can copy but cant recieve.


Does the machine actually answer the incoming call? If so does it give an error code? Are you using the genuine brother line lead? Finally make sure the line lead is plugged into the "line" socket and not the "tel" socket.

The fax continually registers as being in "sleep" mode. Says it's in "Sleep" mode all day even when it is receiving and or sending out. How do I correct that?


Setting the Sleep Mode reduces power consumption while the machine is idle.

You can choose how long the machine is idle (from 00 to 99 minutes) before it drops into sleep mode.

The timer automatically resets itself after the machine
receives a fax or PC data, or makes a copy. The default setting is 5 minutes.

1 Press Menu, 1, 8.
2 Use the Dial pad to enter the length of
time the machine is idle before it drops
into sleep mode (00 to 99 minutes), and then press Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.

We have a Brother Intellifax 4100e, business class laserfax, superg3 fax machine in our office. When the fax machine goes into sleep mode, we can't get it to come out of sleep mode unless we unplug it and...


Try changing the sleep mode settings. Sometimes it's set too long or too short. You can try the perimeter reset as well. The instructions I have for that is as follows:

hit the menu button and numbers *2864 (star before the four numbers)
then hit 91(set) wait a few seconds for the maintenance screen to return
then hit 99(set) when it beeps saying completed that could fix your problem.

Hope this helps.

The Brother FAX 4100e says "sleep" all the time, though it seems to work okay. Is this right?


that's an energy saver function. If your fax is sending and receiving fine, then take it as a money saver :)

Hope this helps.
