Unable to receive fax on 4100e


Sorry, but you have to be more specific on what are you trying to achieve and what you have done so far.
Do you want the unit to automatically answer a call and receive the fax? If so, make sure that you have switched it to FAX mode (press the MODE button repeatedly until FAX is shown on the display). You can also set it to FAX/TEL mode, whereby the machine will answer the calls and signal (ring) if it is a voice call not a fax.
The default setting is for the machine to answer after 4 rings, refer to the manual if you want to change this value (you can download the manual here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002079/FAX4100e_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf

If you want to manually receive a fax after you've picked the phone up yourself, then when you hear the other side fax beeping, simply press the START button.

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.

  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.
