It's kinda hard to answer these when we don't know the product name or model number. If the device has an RS232 serial port, you can usually use it (9600-8-N-1) to get to the boot menu, and there is often an option to upload firmware via XMODEM.
Caveat: if the boot menu gives you the option of increasing the baud rate above 9600, use that before starting the transfer. 9600 baud means ~9K/sec, which translates to roughly 2 minutes per Megabyte.
Press the Menu or
Menu/Set key. Then
Miscellaneous and Compatibility.
Press the Up or Down key until you can
select Basic. Basic reduces the
modem speed to 9600 bps.
Press OK or
Menu/Set or Set key.
Note these instructions should work for the
following models: Fax-1835C, Fax-1840C, Fax-1940CN, Fax-2440C,
Fax-2820, Fax-2825, Fax-2920, MFC-210C, MFC-215C, MFC-240C, MFC-3240C,
MFC-3340c, and most other MFC models.
Enter Maintenance Mode: 1.Unplug power from rear of Fax machine, hold the Menu button while plugging power back in.Continue to hold the Menu button until "Maintenance" appears in the LCD window. 2.There are no helps for the Maintenance mode.Follow parameter change procedures to the letter. Changing Baud Rate from Automatic to 9600: 1.Enter 10 (one, zero).This will bring up WSW00 on the LCD window. 2.Change the 00 to 19.If the baud rate is set to automatic, the numbers that appear will be 11100010. 3.Change the 11100010 to 01100010.This sets the baud rate to 9600. 4.Press the "Set" button just below the LCD window. 5.Press "Stop". 6.Enter 99.This will exit Maintenance mode and make the fax ready to use again.
If you are getting the error code concerning the baud rate.. You need to go into my computer, click on control panel, go into network and connections and delete my connection. This will take care of the error message then you can continue to connect your device to wifi.
1. Press the setup button (upper right corner of the fax machine) 2. Keep pressing the setup button until you get to the fourth option which says "Advanced Fax Setup" 3. Press OK to select the "Advanced Fax Setup" menu 4. Then using the left or right scroll arrows (below the OK button) scroll till you get to the sixth option which says "Fax Speed" 5. Press OK to select this menu item 6. Press the right scroll arrow till you get "slow" for the fax speed. 7. Press OK to accept this selection.
Then initiate a fax as you normally would.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
Because you are using a VOIP service it can from time to time lose connection briefly. The slower the speed the less data can be loss do to network congestion. It also gives the error correcting function of the receiving fax a better chance of filling in any lost data.
9600 is a good choice becasue the industry minimum is 9600. This means you will be able to communicate pretty much any fax thats is still tickin today. Raising the speed will get you a faster transfer but will also increase the chance that you are sending data at a faster rate than the recieving fax can send.
2. How to change the baud rate....
Press Menu/Set, 2, 0, 1.
Press ▲ or ▼ to select Basic or
Normal (or High*).
* High is available for FAX-2910, FAX-2920
and MFC-7225 only.
Basic reduces the modem speed to 9600
bps. Unless interference is a recurring
problem on your phone line, you may
prefer to use it only when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
High sets the modem speed at
