I need to restore our fax (Brother 4100e )back to the original settings to remove all the phone/fax numbers. Can you help?

press the "menu/set", and then "*2864". you have to press these within 2 seconds. machine should beep and say "maintenance" when you've entered correctly. then press "01". panel should come up and say "parameter init". when that message clears, press "99". that should take you back to normal display.

good luck,

When i send a Fax how do i get a copy that the fax was Recived to the person i sent it to

You will get sound signal like longer beep. when you get three short beeps it means error (sent fax was not successful).
Also you can set XMIT report (means after every your sent fax, you will get printed out sheet with confirmation or error for previous sent fax - not recommended, will increase consumption of paper and toner).
If want to, follow steps:
- press key "Menu/Set"
- press "2" key
- press "4" key
- press "1" key (will see "trans: off")
- with navigation key "down" or "up" select "trans: on" or "trans: on + image"
- then press key "Menu/Set" to confirm it

Beeping sound coming from machine! When I take out the paper tray, the annoying beeping sound goes off; the second I put it back in, the beeping starts again.

Is there an error message in the display such as 011 ?

Try this

open top cover
remove toner cart

monitor key slowly 4 times
scroll down to ALL JOB CLEAR

wait for the machine to reboot

Speed dial will not set.

Unplug the phone cord and try again. I don't think you can do that while there is fax activity going on.

After making my post, I went to the official Brothers website for the 4100 FAQs and "Operating Instructions." Here's what I found. Set your 4100 set to the "Fax/Tel" mode. Press "Menu", then the number 2 (Fax), then number 1(Set-up Receive), then number 1 again (Ring Delay). Use right arrow key to increase. Once increased, press the "Set" key. You'll see the message "Accepted." Now press the "Stop" key to exit "Menu." This will now give you up to 4 rings before the fax auto answers. Inorder to send a signal by phone to remote start the fax just follow the instructions I copied directly from Brothers instructions for the 4100: If you answer the call on an extension phone (this is any phone plug into a phone jack on the same line) and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or just silence (manual fax), press *51(remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the Brother machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up. I don't have anyone that can send me a fax right now to test it out. I'll have to try it in the morning. Hope this works for you.

Key pad on brother 1020e fax mc seems to be locked when you press copy for ex it just beeps 3 times

When the Brother machines beep three times while pressing any button on the front panel, this means there is a button stuck. Try pressing all buttons over and over to unstick button. This should help. Please rate my help if this works. If you need anything else, save my user name and ask me anytime. Thanks!

The Start Button can become stuck on these very easily. If it is stuck, then press it down and it should jump back.
