Re: Can not receive faxes

On the front of your machine, you will see a button that says "In/Out". I bet someone hit that by mistake, turning off auto-answer.

Hello! How to program automatic reception of a fax after 4 calls (at the weekends, when at office anybody isn't present. Thank you. Best regards, Veronika

hi; Receiving Both Documents and Telephone Calls Automatically: Fax/Tel Mode If you set Fax/Tel mode, you can control precisely how the fax handles incoming calls by adjusting the following settings: ??? Adjust the time the fax takes to check whether a call is from a fax machine or a telephone (<RING START TIME> setting). ??? Adjust the length of time the fax rings when the call is a voice call (<TEL RING TIME> setting). ??? Set whether the fax switches to receive mode after the ring time set in <TEL RING TIME> has elapsed (<DEFAULT ACTION> setting). 1 Press [Menu]. 2 Use [{] or [}] to select <DATA REGSTRATION>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <USER SETTINGS>. 3 Use [{] or [}] to select <RX SETTINGS>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <ECM RX>. 4 Use [{] or [}] to select <FAX/TEL AUTO SW>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <RING START TIME>. 5 Press [Start/Copy]. 6 Use the numeric buttons, or [{] or [}] to enter the time the fax waits before ringing when it receives a call, then press [Start/Copy] twice. 7 Use the numeric buttons, or [{] or [}] to enter the time the fax rings while waiting for someone to pick up the Handset, then press [Start/Copy] twice. The LCD displays <RECEIVE>. Note ??? If paper jams, see "Troubleshooting" on page 53. ??? If the Ink Lamp lights up faxes will be received to memory. 8SEC. 22SEC. Use [{] or [}] to select <RECEIVE> or <DISCONNECT>, then press [Start/Copy]. This setting tells the fax what to do if the Handset is not picked up within the specified ring time set in step 6. 9 Press [Stop]. Setting ends and the fax returns to standby mode.

Not receiving any incoming faxes

Is the phone line working? Do you have any devices connected to the phone line that pick up before the fax machine? Make sure the machine has paper and is set to FAX or AUTO. Is there a Memory Full error? Clear the memory (Setup > Memory Clear then press Start/Enter. Use the left and right arrows to select the items to remove. Press Start/Enter twice (second time to confirm the choice). Repeat until all memory is cleared that you wish to clear. Then press Stop to exit.)

If you are using the ANS/FAX mode and have an answering machine connected to the extension port, disconnect the anwering machine and switch to FAX or AUTO. Check if the machine receives faxes. Sometimes the extra device causes interference. Call the fax machine from a different phone number and see if you hear the fax tones.

Check that the Junk Fax barrier is off, if the incoming call is from a machine that is not listed in your speed dial database. If you have a distinctive ring, make sure that the Fax machine has learned the ring by pressing Setup go to DRPD. Choose Set and call the fax machine from another phone. The LCD will say Waiting Ring until it gets that call and then once the ring is learned will say END DRPD Setup

I hope these ideas help.

(If you have a phone company voice mail service, the faxes may end up stuck in that box. It depends on how many rings the fax is set to wait before picking up versus when the voice mail opens to take the call.)

We are not receiving faxes...telephone rings but doesnt pick up

the fax may be out of ink, out of paper , or set in the manual mode , I would think its set in the manual mode and has to be reset in the auto mode, go to settings , receive mode and set to auto.

These units only ring under two circumstances. First the external phone must be attached. It has a volume slider on the phone. Second. The recieve mode must be st for Fax/Tel not anything else

If it is a dedicated fax line it is probabaly best set to fax only mode. Fewer rings (No more than two) FaxTel mode will ring for longer to allow you to pick it up if its a phone call.

Check if the machine has dial tone by onhook button or handset to check. If you have none try testing with another phone to rule out the machine.

Try a manual reception. Pick up the phone when it rings and press the start button.

The machine is probably set to "manual receive." Check the receive mode. In "Manual" mode the machine will ring until the start" button is pressed. Fax mode will allow the machine to receive faxes as will the "Auto" mode which will allow both faxes and telephone calls automatically.

What does "TAD" mean when it appears on the screen?

TAD is Telephone Answering Device. TAD mode is the only mode that can be used with an external telephone answering device (unless you are using a distinctive ring number for receiving faxes). Your telephone answering device must be connected to the jack on the fax machine (labeled "EXT" for USA). When someone dials your telephone/fax number (to send a fax or to speak to you), all the telephones (including the FAX) will ring according to the number of rings you set on the TAD. The Ring Delay setting is not recognized in the TAD mode. If you do not answer the call, the TAD will answer. As your outgoing message is playing, the Fax is in the background, silently listening for fax tones. If the FAX hears fax tones, it will automatically go into the receive mode. If the FAX does not hear fax tones, it remains silent, allowing the caller to leave a message. The above information is correct for a Brother fax machine. Is your fax automatically picking up the call or do you have to push a panel button to start the receive fax process? Perhaps the fax is already "in" your fax machine's memory and only needs a manual printout. Check the fax call log.
