I need it to pick up on the 5th ring


The "Changing the Settings" section begins on page 10 of the manual. You need to go past the language and day/time to get to the number of rings.

I'm going out on a limb here, and guessing it's a Canon imageClass MF4150... If not, please disregard this solution.

The advanced manual can be viewed / downloaded / printed here, directly from Canon:

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900006459/imageCLASS_MF4150_Advanced_Guide_EN.pdf

To stop it from interfering with the telephone conversation:

Issue: Fax interrupts telephone conversations in answering machine mode (AnsMode)
Solution: Setting the Receive Mode - ICMF 4150

Setting the Receive Mode
  1. Press <Additional Functions>.


  2. Use <la.gif> or <ra.gif> to select [5 FAX SETTINGS], then press <OK>.


  3. Use <la.gif> or <ra.gif> to select [3 RX SETTINGS], then press <OK>.


  4. Use <la.gif> or <ra.gif> to select [3 RX MODE], then press <OK>.


  5. Use <la.gif> or <ra.gif> to select the desired receive mode, then press <OK>.
    round_note.gif - For [AnsMode], make sure an answering machine is connected to the machine.
    If [AnsMode], [FAX/TEL], or [DRPD] is selected, you can select some settings as below:

    [AnsMode]
    --- [AnsMode CHK TIME] (select time from 10 to 30 seconds for the answering machine to start playing outgoing message after receiving a call)
    --- [FAX DETECT TIME] (select the duration from 10 to 70 seconds for the fax to detect)

    [FAX/TEL]
    --- [RING START TIME] (select the time from 0 to 30 seconds for the phone to start ringing after receiving a call)
    --- [F/T RING TIME] (select the duration of ringing from 10 to 45 seconds)
    --- [F/T SWITCH ACTION] (select the action the machine will take after the ringing ends, Receive or Disconnect)

    [DRPD]
    --- [NORMAL RING]
    --- [DOUBLE RING]
    --- [SHORT-SHORT-LONG]
    --- [SHORT-LONG-SHORT]
    --- [OTHER RING TYPE]
  6. Press <Stop/Reset> to return to the standby display.

Our DECT2015 phone only rings 4 times and then stops.How cane I adjust the ringing time of our phone? Thanks Peter


Do you have voicemail or an answering machine? This is usually a sign that another device (fax, answering machine or voicemail service) is set to answer the call after 4 rings. You will need to lengthen to number of rings before the service/device in question picks up. (The method to reset this will depend on the service/device that is picking up.) Another possibility is a call forwarding service that is enabled at 4 rings.

I hope this helps. Please write back with details on the device that could be picking up for details on setting the number of rings. If you have voicemail or call forwarding, check with your telephone service provider to lengthen the number of rings before the service kicks in. (There are too many for me to know all of the providers instructions.)

Phone is plugged in to a fax machine and the phone rings too many times before answering machine picks up so the fax machine takes over. How can I reduce the number of rings so that the answering machine...


Change the answer machine rings to answer number to less than the fax number of rings to answer or increase the number of rings to answer on the fax machine. Would need exact model number of phone system to give more detail on programming steps. Info should be in manuals of phone system and fax machine.

Looks like the basic functions of the phone are correct. Remain the answering machine. Are you sure it can act as an answering machine?
If it can act as answering machine the reason it is not doing so may be the following.
  1. Answering function is turned OFF
  2. Answering function may be ON but the number of rings before it answers is set too high.
I suggest you try the following
Call you phone. Let it ring at least 10 times. If it can act as an answering machine it will pick up the phone and read the welcome message, because most answering machines (the recent ones at least) answer after 10 rings even if answering function is turned OFF.

The phones that can be answering machines usually do have a display that shows the number of incoming messages, or a LED that flashes to let you know that you have new recorded messages.

How do you set the number of rings on a brother 560 fax machine


Hi,

Setting Ring Delay:
The Ring Delay setting determines the number of times the fax machine rings before it answers. If you have extension phones on the same line as the fax machine, keep the Ring Delay at a default setting of 4:
1 Press Function/Set, 2, 1.
2 Press < or > to select how many times the line rings before the fax machine answers (00 – 04) and press Function/Set. If you select 00, the line doesn’t ring at all.
3 Press Stop to exit.

Hope that's clear enough :)

Number of rings


Looks like 6 is the Max, according to the Manual.

Setting the Ring Time
Ring Time allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your
answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer
after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS), the answering system
picks up after two rings if you have new messages and after four rings if there are
none.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time
submenu (see "Entering the Menu Option" on
page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select a Ring Time (Toll
Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Toll saver is a feature where you can call the phone yourself, if there are messages it wil answer in 2 rings, if not it'll answer in 4 rings. The idea is to hang up on the 3rd ring and save the LD changes.

Hope that fixed Ya...
