SOURCE: wont' send a fax

In my experience, anything plugged up to a phone line can be some of the most susceptible to electric discharge. Thunderstorms, power surges, brown out, all of these can cripple or kill a fax machine. When I saw this symptom on a fax, 9 times out of 10 it was caused by a power surge of some sort. The line error is most likely the machine's outgoing line has been zapped. The 775 (and it's father, the 770) are some of the most straightforward faxes I have dealt with when it comes to faxing. There is no internal setting that I am aware of that would inhibit the sending of faxes. I would double check the transmission report to make sure that the machine isn't doing something weird like adding extra digits to the numbers you are dialing. It would still be worth your time to try a few things, though. I would plug the fax into another phone jack using a different phone cord if available. Also try using the fax as a telephone, call a number and see if you can connect. If you can, make sure both parties can hear each other clearly. If you can not, the machine will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Trouble faxing and receiving fax from "Brother 575".

Try changing the "Bandwidth Saver" settings on your Vonage account from the Vonage website. Perform the following:

1. Login to your Vonage account online and click the "Features" tab.
2. Scroll down to the "Bandwidth Saver" link and click on the "Configure" button.
3. You will see a scrollbar with 3 settings: 30kbps, 50kbps and 90kbps

NOTE: My "Saver" was set to 90kbps (Highest Sound Quality) by default.

4. Click on 30kbps (Normal) and click "Submit".
5. Wait about an hour before testing as it could take that long for the change to take effect.
6. Send a test fax to the HP fax test service at 1-888-hpfaxme (1-888-473-2963).

NOTE: This is a GREAT service provided by HP. If your fax goes through correctly, you will receive a return fax within five minutes.

We upgraded to Verizon FiOS and never thought the increased upload speed (4mbps) would present an issue sending faxes. WRONG. We never had fax issues with DSL, Comcast or even Broadstripe VOIP service but for some reason Vonage + FiOS = no fax. That is until we set our Vonage VOIP sound quality to "Normal". Our phone voice quality has been much more reliable since throttling back. This sentiment has also been shared by other Vonage users who have experienced echoing and noise when utilizing the higher quality settings.

Your phone coversations may not have FM quality sound but they will have AM quality and usually that is just fine.

Hopefully this will work for you.

SOURCE: brother fax 4750e can not receive or send fax.

To set up for receiving Fax, do the following:
Press Mode button repeatedly untin Fax and Fax/Tel lights are lit.
Faxes will automatically print and answering machine will take the calls. If you have a dedicated fax line, do the following:
Press Mode button repeatedly until just the FAX light is lit. Then the machine will answer every call as a fax.

You need to make sure that your machine is set to "FAX" mode,not"PHONE"mode and that it is in "AUTO"receive, not "MANUAL"receive mode.

SOURCE: Brother Intellifax 1" black line on right in send & copy modes

The most common cause of your problem is debris in the paper feeder. To fix this, lift up the feeder panel and clean out the feeder channel. Sometimes loose dirt or a scrap of paper will find its way in front of the scanner lens. A can of compressed air will usually do the trick here unless it's a smudge of some sort in which case it will need to be cleaned directly with a soft cloth.

How can I get the telephone on my Brother Fax T96 to work?


Step by step information at the link below.
Brother Fax T96
The F/T Mode is used to allow the fax machine and the telephones to share the same telephone line. When a call comes in, the fax machine and all extension telephones on that line will ring according to the number of rings you have set for the Ring Delay.
When the Ring Delay is completed, the fax machine will answer the call and determine if it is a fax call or a telephone (voice) call.
The fax machine can determine this by the signal it is receiving on the telephone line. If someone is sending a fax automatically , the sending fax machine will transmit a fax tone (a series of beeps every 3 seconds).
If your fax machine hears these tones, it will receive the fax.

If the fax machine does not hear any fax tones, it assumes it is a telephone (voice) call and will begin ringing the F/T ring tones (double ring) for the length of time you selected for the F/T Ring Time. These tones will only ring on the fax machine's handset (extension or external phones will not ring). At the end of the F/T ring time the fax machine will go into the receive mode in order to receive a manual fax.
(If the call was a voice call and was not answered, the caller will hear the fax receive tones also).
  • If you answer the call before the fax machine(during the ring delay period) and determine it is a fax, you can transfer the fax to the fax machine for receiving.

  • If you answer the call on an "extension" phone and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or silence (manual fax), press *51 or *91 for New Zealand (remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the fax machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up.

  • If you answer on the handset of the fax machine and hear a beep every 3 seconds or silence, press the Fax Start or Start/Copy key on the control panel of the fax machine and then hang up the handset.

  • If you answer a call on an "extension" phone during the F/T Ring Time, you will hear the F/T ring tones.
    To release the call from the fax machine, press #51 or #91 for New Zealand (remote deactivation code) on the telephone keypad and you can speak to the calling party.

  • If you pick up the handset of the fax machine during the F/T ring time, you may talk to the calling party immediately.

NEED THE MACHINE TO ANSWER WHEN THE PHONE SENDS THE SIGNAL.


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.
