It seems that the protocol is failing. Just check, by printing a receive report. If there are errors it is after the check frame. If no errors, it is failing before the check frame. In either case, 1st aid is to listen using a handset for noise or static on the line. If the line is clear, then you will have to call service to change the tx/rx attenuation.

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

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!

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.
