Question about Brother MFC-9440CN Laser Printer

1 Answer

Voicemail is not kicking in most of the time

As fax is on the same line. Phone company doesn't offer a ''distinctive ring''. I really don't want to set it on manual and have to answer it all the time nor do I want to go back to an answering machine. Any other ideas? Thanks.

    Interesting. How was it that the answering machine worked for you? You should be able to configure your voicemail to pickup earlier, but it would pickup fax calls as well. Separate line is the only other solution other than a device that would automatically route the calls to fax when needed.

There is a function in the users manual that talks about the ring delay. You may adjust this and it may help with your issue. If you have no user manual, you can download it for free from the companies website under downloads.

Hooking up fax to KX TG7871 Panasonic Phone


There is excellent support here on basic fax setups. You have what is known as "Distinctive Ringing Service". There are pros and cons to the various setups. I assume you recognize the rings and answer only when the ring for the landline talk comes on. The fax will pick up the faxes, and the answering machine will pick up the voice.

Need model number of your fax - google that!

This link shows various configurations of setting up your phone/fax/answering machine or using an answering service.

Distinctive Ringing Service setup While it is not available everywhere, a distinctive ringing service can be purchased from most telephone companies. With this service, more than one phone number is assigned to the same phone line. Each phone number will ring differently. The main number will ring with a normal single ring and the additional number will ring with a distinctive ring pattern assigned by the phone company.
When a distinctive ringing service is used, set the Rings to Answer to 2 and then follow the steps below to set the distinctive ringing pattern:
  1. Press Setup , press 4 , and then press 1 to enter the Answer Ring Pattern setup of the Advanced Fax settings.
  2. Use the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the ring pattern assigned by the phone company displays (double or triple rings), press OK .

MY X5650 WILL SEND FAXES BUT NOT RECIEVE THEM


Are you sharing your home phone line with your fax? If so, do you have a voicemail or an answering machine connected in the same line?

If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings, set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.

If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.

I cannot receive faxes on my lexmark X4270. It will ring but nothing come through


Please go through the following checklists:
  • Make sure the that the fax line is working. To check, insert a telephone device straight to the fax line. You should get a dial tone.
  • Make sure the telephone cord from the phone jack in the wall is plugged into the Line port on the back of your Lexmark printer.
  • Assign the correct fax number on the printer.
  • If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings, set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.
  • If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.
If these don't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Please go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure to plug the telephone fax line from the phone jack in the wall to the Line port on the back of your printer. For more info, please refer to the Lexmark X125 User's Guide.
  • If you have an answering machine connected to the same fax line, be sure to configure it so that it answers first before the fax machine (e.g. if your answering machine picks up on the 3rd ring, set your fax to pick up on the 6th ring or more)
  • If the line has a voicemail feature, disable it or request for a distinctive ring from your phone company.

If you have a voicemail set on the same line then you may only be able to use either the fax or the voice mail if you want to the fax then change the rings to answer on the fax to 2 (setup button->basic fax settings->rings to answer->press ok on 2) keep the mode to auto mode. However if you want to use both the voicemail and the fax on the same line you might have to get a DRP (Distinctive Ring Pattern) from you telephone company.

It will only automatically pick up the line when set to "fax". You need to subscribe to a "distinctive" ring (which is a double ring) service through your telephone company and set the rings to answer appropriately so as to not conflict with your voicemail

I am trying to setup answering data and fax on the same phone line. What setting do you use to isolate data vs voice for incoming calls and either the fax pick up or the phone call go to a voicemail? JC


Order "distinctive ring" from your telephone-company.

One style of "ring" can be routed to the FAX,
and the other style of "ring" can be routed to voice-mail.

I have a gigaset 8825. I have a "distinctive ring" problem


Hello,

I have the same phone system, and *think* you may be able to fix the problem by adjusting the amount of rings before answer on each unit. This assumes there is an auto answer system engaged. Hope that helps some.

The fax is on what you call a Distinctive Ring tone. You need to go in to the settings on the fax machine, and look for Ring type, or Distinctive Ring, And set it to 2 or 3, Dependent on how the phone rings on the fax number.
