    no dial tones but beeps

  • Anonymous Feb 12, 2008

    When my computer was connected to the modem, fax, everything worked well. I went wireless and my daughter's computer is hooked up directly to the "operation" of things. NOW The fax machine receives a fax but will not sent. There is a dial seems to be in a telephone mode rather than a fax mode. How do I switch this out?

Able to receive fax but cant send

sleep mode is just a status of the machine when it is in idle cannot turn this off however you can delay the time before the unit goes into a sleep has nothing to do when you are sending out 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.
