Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax
I AM SETTING UP THIS FAX ON OUR SYSTEM FOR THE FIRST TIME AND WE NEED THE PHONE LINE OPEN UNTIL A SIGNAL IS SENT TO RECEIVE THE FAX. WITH OUR OLD FAX MACHINE WE PICKED UP THE LINE AND PUSHED 'STAR 51' THEN THE FAX RECEIVED. THANKS
After making my post, I went to the official Brothers website for the 4100 FAQs and "Operating Instructions." Here's what I found. Set your 4100 set to the "Fax/Tel" mode. Press "Menu", then the number 2 (Fax), then number 1(Set-up Receive), then number 1 again (Ring Delay). Use right arrow key to increase. Once increased, press the "Set" key. You'll see the message "Accepted." Now press the "Stop" key to exit "Menu." This will now give you up to 4 rings before the fax auto answers. Inorder to send a signal by phone to remote start the fax just follow the instructions I copied directly from Brothers instructions for the 4100: If you answer the call on an extension phone (this is any phone plug into a phone jack on the same line) and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or just silence (manual fax), press *51(remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the Brother machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up. I don't have anyone that can send me a fax right now to test it out. I'll have to try it in the morning. Hope this works for you.
