Did you check Customer Support on the company site? The manual for your machine is available there in various languages. Or you can download it from here (English):

    Check thechapter 2 , page 2 of the manual "Change the Station ID":



    Setting the Station ID

    You should store your name or company

    name and fax number so they print on all fax

    pages you send.

    It is important that you enter the fax number

    in the internationally standardised format, i.e.

    in accordance with the following strict

    sequence:

    ■ The “+” (plus) character (by pressing

    key)

    ■ Your Country Code (e.g. “44” for the

    United Kingdom, “41” for Switzerland)

    ■ Your local area code minus any leading

    “0” (“9” in Spain)

    ■ A space

    ■ Your number on the local exchange, using

    spaces to aid readability as appropriate.

    As an example, if the machine is installed in

    the United Kingdom and the same line is to be

    used for both fax and voice calls, and your

    national telephone number is 0161 444 5555,

    then you must set the fax and telephone

    number parts of your station ID as: +44 161

    444 5555.

    1 Press Menu/Set, 0, 3.

    2 Enter your fax number (up to 20 digits).

    Press Menu/Set.

    3 Enter your telephone number (up to 20

    digits).

    Press Menu/Set.

    (If the telephone number and fax

    number are the same, enter the same

    number again.)

    Note

    ■ You cannot enter a hyphen in the number.

    To enter a space press once between

    numbers.

    ■ The telephone number you enter is only

    used for Cover Page features.

    (See Composing the electronic Cover

    Page
    on page 3-9.)

    4 Use the dial pad to enter your name (up

    to 20 characters).

    (See Entering Text on page B-10).

    Press Menu/Set.

    5 Press Stop/Exit.

    Note

    If the Station ID has already been

    programmed, the LCD will ask you to press 1

    to make a change or 2 to exit without

    changing.

Recieve mode


Hi slickkitty
Only one press for each display,
When you press the FAX RECEIVE MODE button, the display should change each time you press. eg: AUTO, FAX ONLY
When you see the FAX ONLY, press the SET button and leave it like that. Don't try to do it when the fax rings. Do it when the fax machine is idle.
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} The following instruction is found in your Fax Manual.
Set the fax machine to FAX ONLY mode by
pressing {RECEIVE MODE} until the
following is displayed.
1 The display will show the number of
rings before the fax machine answers a
call in FAX ONLY mode.
2 Press {+} or {-} to change the ring
setting to 2 and press {SET}.
How to receive calls
Just leave it. When the other party sends a fax,
the fax machine will receive it automatically.


Hope this will help, if it helped you, please give a rating.
Good luck

Cant send a fax


Confirm dialing the correct fax number?

Any 0s to get an outside line, any special area codes?

What happens when you try to send a fax, can you hear a dial tone? can you hear the fax ringing? can you hear a response from the recipiant?

There are no digital fax machines. You need an analog phone line for your machine to work reliably.

Able to receive fax but cant send


sleep mode is just a status of the machine when it is in idle mode.you cannot turn this off however you can delay the time before the unit goes into a sleep mode.it has nothing to do when you are sending out faxes.so here are a few things you need to check when sending a fax (1)dial tone by pressing hook/hold button (2) insert the doc into the adf, make sure it will change to "enter fax # and start,or copy press copy (3) dial the number (4) wait for fax tones of the receiving unit before you press start. now if you can hear an operator on the line,that has to be verified with your phone company since brother machine does not restrict incoming and outgoing faxes UNLESS that is restricted from your phone line.

Cant send fax


Recieving faxes
  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient

Can't receive fax but can send


Call your cell phone from the fax machine and check the caller ID to make sure that it is the correct number for your fax machine. Next, call the fax machine from you cell phone, and make sure the fax machine rings. Problems like these are almost always a phone line issue, not the machine.

Don't forget to rate your solutions please.
