Brother MFC-465CN - receiving faxes

Brand new out of the box, will not print incoming faxes.
Sends a treat and indicates that a fax is "inbound". However just will not print the inbound stuff. Any ideas. Am I missing the obvious..?

Re: Brother MFC-465CN - receiving faxes

I changed the Distinctive Ring to choice 4.
Reduce the Compatibility mode to Basic and it worked on my MFC465CN
Took me a few days to find the DR choice was the problem.
Rings are also set to 1. Hope this helps someone else who comes along.

Brother Intellifax-2820, will not print incoming faxes. It rings, says it's receiving data and thats it. Yes I have paper in tray. Sends and copies fine.

You need to make sure that your machine is set to "FAX" mode,not"PHONE"mode and that it is in "AUTO"receive, not "MANUAL"receive mode.

Need to clear the memory of Brother MFC-8220 fax

The easy way to reset the machine is to power it off for a period of time. Say overnight will allow the battery back up on the board to run out and the machine to loose its memory.
