Does anyone know how to stop the very loud screeching ring the fax machine makes when a fax is about to come in. Does anyone know what I am talking about? It rings for like a second, but it is horrible.

It drove me crazy too, but I found out how to fix it!!! On the phone looking receiver, there is the smallest little slits that have volume control on them. If you pick up the receiver with your left hand, turn it to the side and you'll see it. Take a paper clip and turn it down. Problem solved.

Assuming there's nothing in the manual that tells you how to stop it. Is there a hole where the sound comes from? Block it up with blu-tack or sticky tape. Regards
