We have a FAX-2820. this is a dumb question, but does the fax header line come from the sender when we are receiving the fax? Does a header go out on any fax we would send out?

Yes, The fax header should show you who sent the fax to you. Every fax is supposed to have a terminal ID (senders fax number and Name)

Hi Fax machines are one of the oldest ways to send document information over a telephone line. Before e-mail became the most popular, and more efficient way to send documents, the fax machine was king. With time, fax machines have become sophisticated machines capable of many functions. No longer found only as a stand-alone machine, fax machines are included in copiers and printers. Faxing can even be done through computer software to a receiving fax machine or printer. So with such a complex machine there are several things that could go wrong. This article teaches you some basic troubleshooting steps.
    Fax Quality
  1. If the faxes you are receiving are too dark or light, or ruined by streaks and splotches, play around with the darkness and density settings on your machine. Send a few test faxes until the quality looks good on your end. If the faxes continue to come out poorly, the problem probably lies on the sender's end. If you are the sender, and your documents are coming out badly on the other end, try cleaning the sensors of your machine with a damp cloth.

I have never had a problem with my fax machine until recently. All of a sudden, the machine rings and rings when a fax is trying to come in; it will show call pickup; to receive the fax, I have to pick up...

The machine has probably been taken off of auto-answer. You can download the manual from Brother's website here:

Then you can verify it's set up properly. If the problem is due to some failure in the fax machine (always possible) you can find service options on Brother's site as well.

Fax will only send and not receive

Call your fax machine from a regular phone and listen for fax tones. Sender may be dialing the wrong number. Is your phone line DSL?
