Re: Crackling sound in telephone connection

Please check your phone cord, try using a different one, sounds like you might either have a bad cord or you have a bad ground inside the speaker or you have a bad connection on you tx/rx board or if you have a phone it could be bad.

How do i receive the fax directly to the pc without the internet ?

From what you are saying. I believe you are trying to receive (or send) a Fax directly to your PC but NOT being connected to the Internet. That is...receive a fax on your telephone line.. This IS possible but you need what we had in the old days called a "Fax Modem" on a PC card to be installed in one of the spare slots inside your PC to which you plug your Telephone line..
Windows has ALWAYS had the feature but you need the Hardware Modem to do it'
See here on how to do it.

How can I get the telephone on my Brother Fax T96 to work?

Step by step information at the link below.
Brother Fax T96
The F/T Mode is used to allow the fax machine and the telephones to share the same telephone line. When a call comes in, the fax machine and all extension telephones on that line will ring according to the number of rings you have set for the Ring Delay.
When the Ring Delay is completed, the fax machine will answer the call and determine if it is a fax call or a telephone (voice) call.
The fax machine can determine this by the signal it is receiving on the telephone line. If someone is sending a fax automatically , the sending fax machine will transmit a fax tone (a series of beeps every 3 seconds).
If your fax machine hears these tones, it will receive the fax.

If the fax machine does not hear any fax tones, it assumes it is a telephone (voice) call and will begin ringing the F/T ring tones (double ring) for the length of time you selected for the F/T Ring Time. These tones will only ring on the fax machine's handset (extension or external phones will not ring). At the end of the F/T ring time the fax machine will go into the receive mode in order to receive a manual fax.
(If the call was a voice call and was not answered, the caller will hear the fax receive tones also).
  • If you answer the call before the fax machine(during the ring delay period) and determine it is a fax, you can transfer the fax to the fax machine for receiving.

  • If you answer the call on an "extension" phone and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or silence (manual fax), press *51 or *91 for New Zealand (remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the fax machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up.

  • If you answer on the handset of the fax machine and hear a beep every 3 seconds or silence, press the Fax Start or Start/Copy key on the control panel of the fax machine and then hang up the handset.

  • If you answer a call on an "extension" phone during the F/T Ring Time, you will hear the F/T ring tones.
    To release the call from the fax machine, press #51 or #91 for New Zealand (remote deactivation code) on the telephone keypad and you can speak to the calling party.

  • If you pick up the handset of the fax machine during the F/T ring time, you may talk to the calling party immediately.

Cannot receive faxes from certain people

Does this affect outgoing faxes? Sounds as though you may have a faulty telephone line. Plug in a telephon handset to the telephone socket on the wall to hear the quality of sound. If there is any interference on the line this will affect your communication. But because it is intermittent, you may not hear anything when you listen. Try and use the machine on another line - I know - if you're at home there may not be another line to use but it does sound like a line fault to me.

The faxs that I am recieving are coming true with lines

It sound like it was a bad phone line and the fax is missing some of the information. It will look like half of the text was squashed. If it is always consistent check your fax line for crackling and make sure no other devices are active on the line.

We have a roll over telephone line, in which the 2nd line is used for faxing, However if by chance we are using the 1st line Is there a particular setting or ring tone to where we will know when a fax is...

Nope. Fax machines use what is called a handshake to establish the connection.
It's a tone sent from the sending fax machine to the receiving machine to make it answer and receive the incoming transmition.
It's not a unique ring.
I always tell people, one of two things. If faxs are that important, you should have a dedicated phone line to receive them. Or, in instances where the message it very important. Use E-mail and sent the information as an attachment.
I understand the expense of an additional phone line for a fax. But you should weigh the importance of your faxing to the expense. Are you missing valuable information by sharing a line?
Just some thoughts.
