Can send a fax but cant receive one


The only way I could receive one was to set it to FAX only (after someone called me to say they were sending a fax) ... then it stores it in memory and you have to go through the FAX menu to print stored documents. I cannot figure out how to set it up so that phone has priority, but when a fax comes through to accept the fax. I tried the Phone prioroity and DRPD settings.
Remember to change the setting from FAX ONLY to one of the others so that your phone will work again.

Fax machine will not receive faxes. Sending okay. Comes up with busy signal at sending point.


Check menu settings and confirm the machine is set for automatic answer. If its in manual mode, you have to hit the start/go button when the fax rings to accept the transmission.

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.

Your machine has the Easy Receive function. Although it's enabled, there's another setting the turns the feature ON, OFF, SEMI. To set the machine to automatically accept/print ALL faxes, do the following:

  1. Press Menu, 2, 1, 3. you will see 3.Easy Receive in the window
  2. Use the <--> keys to change from OFF to either ON or SEMI (in your case you want the feature fully enabled so change it to ON)
  3. Press Stop/Exit.
Your machine should now accept and print faxes automatically.

My canon mx310 is not accepting faxes


What do you mean by its not accepting faxes? Have you correctly set up the printer and do you have your phone line plugged into it? Some printer dont actually act as a fax machine, they tend to provide you with FAX software for your computer which automatically used the printer to simply print the document out when the software has received the fax, i would check first

Phone and fax recieving on the one phone line.


Hi Brad,

Press fuction 64 set.

Look at the print out for MANUAL MODE setting

Press fuction 74 set 1 set to enable MANUAL MODE

Now to receive a fax you must press START when the fax rings.

I don't think you're going to find a free manual. Check eBay.

How do I set up my X7170 to receive a FAX?


Link
Receiving a fax You can choose to receive a fax automatically, manually, or through an answering machine.
Note: For your All-In-One to receive a color fax, the machine from which you are receiving must also support color faxes.
Automatically Recommended for a dedicated fax line
Your All-In-One automatically accepts incoming faxes using the automatic answering mode. When the Auto Answer light is on, the All-In-One receives a fax after the specified number of rings set in the Options menu.
To set a number of rings for the automatic answering mode:
  1. On the control panel, press Mode repeatedly until Fax is selected.
  2. Press Options until ANSWER FAX WHEN appears.
  3. Press + to choose After 1 ring, After 2 rings, After 3 rings (default), or After 5 rings.
  4. Press Select.
  5. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on.
When the number of rings that you set is detected, the All-In-One automatically receives your fax.
Manually Recommended for a shared fax and telephone line
You can choose which incoming faxes to accept by setting your All-In-One to manual answering mode.
  1. Make sure the All-In-One Auto Answer light is off.
  2. Press *9* on the telephone after you answer the telephone and hear fax tones.
  3. Hang up the telephone.
The All-In-One receives your fax.
Answering machine Recommended for a shared fax and telephone line
To receive a fax with an answering machine connected to your All-In-One, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the All-In-One does. For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after 3 rings, set the All-In-One to answer calls after 5 rings.
  1. On the control panel, press Mode repeatedly until Fax is selected.
  2. Press Options until ANSWER FAX WHEN appears.
  3. Press + until After 5 rings appears.
  4. Press Select.
  5. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on.
When a ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
  • If a fax is detected, the All-In-One receives the fax and disconnects the answering machine.
  • If not, the answering machine completes the call.
Note: You must set up the equipment as shown in connecting to an answering machine.
