Not familiar with the procedure to set your machine, so refer to your manual if need be, but somehow you machine has been chnged from "automatic receiv" to "manual receive", or "telephone mode".. Setting obviously needs to be "auto" for the machine to pick up on it's own.
Often times, this is a button right on the operation panel that you can toggle between the different settings.

Cant send fax out. getting a message exceeded job memory. How do I clear this


Dear
As the model is not mentioned its difficult to right solution. But in general when a document sent from memory some times this happen. This is frequent if memory recieved is more and not printed.
Its cleared on printing all memory recieved or memory cleared(all received fax will deleted).
Also sending fax manually may be done.I.e.Dial the fax no.get the fax tone load the document press start or send. Also in setting the scanning resolution may be minimised up to150/200dpi for less memory.
Thanks.

Fax machine isn't able to recieve or send anything


Make sure there is a dial tone on the phone reciever. If there is not check the connections, the cord could be damaged or disconnected. If there is, check the Recieve mode.

If not call Brother support - its free

I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.


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!

Can't receive faxes but can send them okay


The easiest thing to check is the recieve mode setting. most of the time when this happens the machine is set on manual recieve. Set it to automatic recieve and you should be fine.
