You can adjust the Answer Delay time by going to Menu then DTAD. Adjust the Answer Delay under this menu... 6 seconds per one ring.

If you have auto attendant set up to answer for you in a multiline system, set that delay accordingly. That will be the first system to pick up, You should set up one auto attendant for every voice line coming into your phones.

On the uniden TRU9466 is there any way to increase the number of rings before it goes into voicemail?


The TRU9466 isn't an answering machine. The number of rings is controlled by whatever answering machine or voicemail system you have on your phone line. Please refer to the documentation for the answering machine or voicemail system to change the ring count.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this post and specify the answering machine or voicemail system.

My Lexmark Interpret S405 fax?copy machine picks up incoming call from cell phone as fax. it goes onto fax automatically after 2 rings..


It seems that you're sharing your home phone line with your Lexmark fax machine. You can adjust the "pick-up" ring from the printer operator panel by pressing the Setup button > Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Pick Up On > select your preferred number of rings before the fax answers.
Please note:
If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings, set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.

If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.

Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this resolves your problem, your rating will be greatly appreciated.

My Lexmark X5650 (Model number: 4437-001) will not auto answer faxes. It can be manually be answered, and the settings are for auto answer. I can also send faxes too with no hassle at all.


bbargains,

Here is the correct procedure to receive a fax automatically;

Make sure the printer is on and is connected to a working phone line.


Make sure that Auto Answer is on.


To check if Auto Answer is on:


From the printer control panel press the wrench sign.


Press the arrow buttons until Fax Setup appears, .

Press the arrow buttons until Ringing and Answering appears, and then press

OK to save the setting.

Press OK again.

Check to see if Auto Answer is set to On.

If Auto Answer is not set to on, press the arrow buttons until On appears, and then

press to save the setting.

Set the number of times the telephone rings before the printer automatically

receives faxes:

Press the arrow buttons until Pick-up On appears, and then press OK .

Press the arrow buttons until the setting that you want appears, and then press to

save the setting.

When the number of rings you set is detected, the printer automatically receives

the incoming fax.


This should solve your problem.


Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

THE ANSWERING SYSTEM WON'T RECORD MESSAGES,ALL MESSAGES GOES INTO POOVIDERS VOICE MAILE, AS IF MY PHONE IS BUSSEY?????? I CHECKED AND RECORD TIME IS NOT SET TO ANNOUNCE ONLY ANS ALL MESSAGES HAVE BEEN...


This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

How do I set up the fax feature?


Introduction The HP All-in-One can receive faxes automatically or manually depending on the Auto Answer setting.

(The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings). Refer to the given instructions to receive faxes automatically or manually. Receiving faxes The HP All-in-One can receive faxes automatically or manually. Receiving a fax automatically To receive faxes automatically, set the Auto Answer option to On (the default setting).

HP L7650 will not auto answer incoming faxes


To set the answer mode to manual or automatic via the control panel

? Press Auto Answer to turn the light on or off, as appropriate for your setup.

When the Auto Answer light is on, the device answers calls automatically. When

the light is off, the it does not answer calls.

To set the answer mode to manual or automatic via the embedded Web server

1. Open the embedded Web server, click the Settings tab, click Fax in the left pane,

and then click the Basic sub-tab.

2. Select On or Off in the Auto Answer drop-down menu in the Other Basic Fax

Settings section.

Set the number of rings before answering

If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before

incoming calls are automatically answered.

The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the

same phone line as the device, because you want the answering machine to answer

the phone before the device does. The number of rings to answer for the device

should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine.

For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the device to

answer in the maximum number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by

country/region.) In this setup, the answering machine answers the call and the device

monitors the line. If the device detects fax tones, it receives the fax. If the call is a

voice call, the answering machine records the incoming message.

To set the number of rings before answering via the control panel

1. Press Setup.

2. Press Basic Fax Setup, and then press Rings to Answer.

3. Enter the appropriate number of rings by using the keypad, or press the left or right

arrow button to change the number of rings.

4. Press OK to accept the setting.

To set the number of rings before answering via the embedded Web server

1. Open the embedded Web server, click the Settings tab, click Fax in the left pane

and then click the Basic sub-tab.

2. Select a number in the Rings-to-answer drop-down menu in the Other Basic Fax
Settings
section.

It will only automatically pick up the line when set to "fax". You need to subscribe to a "distinctive" ring (which is a double ring) service through your telephone company and set the rings to answer appropriately so as to not conflict with your voicemail

How to set number of rings


Use Ring Select to choose how many times
the line will ring before the system
answers a call. Set for 2, 4 or Toll Saver.
When you set the system for Toll Saver, it
answers after four rings when you have no
new messages, and after two rings when
you have new messages.
1. Press and hold "set up" for about two
seconds. The system announces the
current ring selection.
2 Press and release "ANNC/SKIP" or "MEMO/REPEAT"
until the system announces your ring
selection.
3 Press and release "Play/Stop" to exit

Answering machine doesn't pick-up reliably


I found in the manual that if the machine doesn't answer after the correct number of rings, then it may be the ringing system used by the phone company. But I have also heard of people with VOIP (such as Vonage) having problems with this as well.
