Have you programmed the  'rapid' (one touch) buttons or the speed dial numbers? (print a report of stored numbers to be sure)


Is machine set to fax mode?

How to specify fax machine to dial '9' before fax number?

Hello ilay,

This procedure is from the Brother FAX-4100e FAQ link:

Storing Speed Dial numbers:
You can store Speed Dial locations on your machine(*). Once you have programmed the Speed Dial number on your machine, you can dial the number by pressing Search/Speed Dial, #(Pound Sign), the Speed Dial number, and then Fax Start.
*The number of locations you can store varies by machines. Please refer to the User's Guide for your machine. The latest User's Guide is available in the Manuals section.

To store Speed Dial numbers follow the steps listed below:

1. Press Menu.
2. Press the left or right arrow key to select Fax and press Set.
3. Press the left or right arrow key to select Set Auto Dial or Set Quick Dial, and press Set.
4. Press the left or right arrow key to select Speed-Dial and press Set.
5. Use the dial pad to enter the location (Speed Dial number) where you wish to store the number and press Set.
6. Enter the number you want to store (up to 20 digits) and press Set.

If you want to enter a pause in the dialing sequence (to wait for an outside line, for example), press Redial/Pause as you're entering digits. Pressing Redial/Pause enters a 3.5-second pause when the number is dialed, and a dash appears on the screen. If you need a pause longer than 3.5 seconds you can press Redial/Pause as many times as needed.
7. Use the dial pad to enter the name or company name (up to 15 characters) and press Set.
If you want to store the number without a name, just press Set.
8. Return to STEP 5 to store another Speed Dial number or press Stop/Exit to exit the menu.

I have a Brother IntelliFax-4100e fax that speed dial button 04 needed to be changed when we changed our phone system to include a 9 at the beginning of the number. Did that, it was 'accepted', but still...

go into menu, then to fax (hit set) then one touch speed dials (hit set) then hit the 04 one touch button and it should show you what is programmed. You can hit number 1 to change, type the number with a 9 in front of it(ie. 9+1+area code+7 digit number) then hit set and program a name for the number, hit set until the fax beeps to accept the change. You can test it with a blank cover sheet. That's how I have mine at work set up and it works fine. Hope this helps.

Fax2900L machine not working according to set user parameters

You have programmed the broadcast with 1 too many numbers using the 10 key method. You wioll have to remove just 1 of the numbers in the broadcast. Not one of the quick dial numbers or one of the speed dial numbers, but one of the numbers you entered using the 10 key pad. I believe the maximum is 10, but you must leave 1 free for the memory to work.

I see that you have programmed 53 numbers for this broadcast. Why not assign speed dial numbers for those that you have used the 10 key pad for?

Need help changing the speed dial ID numbers

In order to change #01 to #21 its best just to program the number into #21 slot and then clear the memory for #1.

Start by trying to store a number at a location already used Press Menu/Set, 2 (Fax), 3 (Set Quick-Dial), 2 (Speed-Dial).

Use the dial pad to select the three-digit location (001 – 200) in which you want to erase the number and press Menu/Set.
The screen displays the name or number currently stored there, then prompts you to either 1. CHANGE or 2. EXIT.
Press the Stop/Exit key when the cursor is to the left of the digits. Everything above and to the right of the cursor is deleted.
Hit he menu/set key.

This should save the speed dial number as a blank.

Can receive, can't send

I spoke to someone at Brother. She told me to "massage the keys in a circular motion". Feeling very foolish I did this. Sure enough when I got to the number "7" it was stuck. The massaging released the key and my fax was working again.

One Touch Dialing numbers won't permanently save to FAX machine

If you followed the procedure F 7, 2 set, 1 for speed dial, enter your free speed dial space, enter your fax #, set, enter the name, set.(continue to next free speed dial key or stop) If this doesn't work then you may have a bad battery on the main board that saves the data if the power goes off.
