Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have two lines through Vonage, one to my phone and one to my fax. Either lines will work on my phone. However, regardless of which line is connected to the fax, the sender gets a busy signal. It as if the Brother thinks it is connected. Pressing the "hook" button does not get rid of the busy signal. Powering off and back on does not get rid of the busy signal......Any suggestions?
From the manual for your Brother model: To select or change your Receive mode 1. If it is not illuminated in green, press "Fax" (picture of Fax button) 2. Press - "Menu/Set, 0, 1." 3. Press - (up arrow) or (down arrow) to select "Fax Only". 4. Press - "Stop/Exit." This is just to select the "Fax Only" option, which is what you need - having a phone line strictly for the fax machine. There are 4 options on that setting, and the manual explains them in more detail. You can also set the "Ring Delay" for the fax by pressing "Menu/Set, 2, 1, 1." The options shown are "0, 1, 2, 3, or 4". It's very likely that you want to select an option OTHER than "0". This Brother manual for your model can be found at this URL: --> http://www.retrevo.com/search/fv/1d4caef84f3754461d7ce187341b923c.pdf#page=1 Hope this helps!
