DR mode means that the distigntive ring feature has been activated so it will not let you change receive mode. You need to turn off DR first. Press menu/set then 2, 0, 2, then press the down arrow till you see distigntive off then press menu/set.

Now you should be able to change the receive mode to fax only!

Can't set mode to receive fax, read through manuel says DR mode in use. fax does'nt pickup when a fax or call comes in stuck in manual.


DR MODE is in use means that your machine is setup with the distinctive ring feature, to turn it off follow the directions below.

Turning off the Distinctive Ring
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 0, 2.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select Off.
Press Menu/Set.

Cannot receive fax - need to set up external TAD receive mode but gives error message "DR Mode in Use"


The machine should have a menu selection. Sometimes it takes patience and time to sit down and go through items to select.
Without having a manual to check, these menus should be available for one to make changes to the fax features.
Somewhere in the menu selection there should be a fax setup recieve and send mode. In that selection you should find the choice to make your changes.
If you do not have a manual, other than finding someone with a manual, this would be your best way to make the changes.
The vender might have the manual, if they do, it might be for a fee.
Good luck

I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.


The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!

Still can't get fax not to pick up when answering machine is connected.


if you have the fax-575 there should be a TAD setting.

This is the setting you would use if you're using an answering machine on the same phone line as your fax machine.

To set the Recieve Mode :

Press Recieve Mode. The LCD display shows your current selection.

Continue to press Recieve Mode until your new selection appears. After 2 seconds the screen returns to the date and time display, along with your new Recieve Mode setting.


The 4 Recieve modes are Fax Only, Fax/Tel, TAD:Answering Machine, Manual.

Hope this helps!!!

Fax will not recieve


DR mode means that Distinctive Ring is set to on which will force your fax machine to manual receive. Turn DR off and you can set it to whatever mode you want.
