DR Mode means distintive ring. This is if you are using two or more phone numbers on one line. For example, you could have your voice mail number and your fax number on the same line, but when a call comes in to your voice mail the fax will recognize the ring pattern and won't pick up the call. If it is truly a Fax, then your fax will pick up the call by recognizing the ring pattern.

My brother mfc6490cw says dr mode what is this


DR stands for distigntive ring.

Before you are able to change the receive mode, you will need to turn off DR.

To turn off DR press MENU, then the down arrow until FAX and press OK. Then with down arrow choose MISC and press OK. Then with down arrow chose DISTINGTIVE and OK, then down arrow until OFF and press OK.

DR mode means that the distigntive ring feature has been activated so it will not let you change receive mode. You need to turn off DR first. Press menu/set then 2, 0, 2, then press the down arrow till you see distigntive off then press menu/set.

Now you should be able to change the receive mode to fax only!

Fax is stuck on manual mode. how can I change. When I try to change modes, is says that DR mode in in use.


I had this problem too, I just fixed it! DR = DISTINCTIVE RING, this means you have it turned on. To turn it off go to menu, fax, miscellaneous, distinctive and select OFF. Now go to back to initial setup and select your mode!
