Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Hi,I need to know how to set the fax up so when someone calls my phone it will go to my voice mail and not the fax.And also the fax will work when i am reciving a fax and not the voice mail.Thank you, gary
Many fax machines have an auto select mode that will answer the phone and listen for a fax machine, but if there is no fax machine it will cause the phone to keep ringing so you can answer the voice call. Your fax does not have that feature. The closest you can come is to set it to manually answer, and then set the fax to kick in automatically if it hears anything. The problem with this is, if you don't answer the phone when it's a fax, the fax machine never kicks in. I don't think that's what you want. The other option is to turn that feature on, but leave it as auto answer after 5 rings (the maximum for your phone). Then answer the phone before 5 rings if you're there. The problem with that is, anyone who calls when you're not there (or if you don't answer within 5 rings) will get your fax machine beeping at them. Do you need help with either of those settings? Let me know if you do, and I'll give you directions on setting them up.

To stop the fax automatically switching to fax mode you have to set it to manual to recieve calls and dissable the fax,there should be an auto/fax and call mode, therefore when someone calls it will go to your voicemail, but that means that you will not be able to recieve a fax. Normally auto mode, will first try the fax, if no fax is recognised it will switch to normal line ringer, then if no answer it should go to your voicemail if unanswered.
