I have a fax line with packet8 which is a voip carrier. I am having trouble receiving faxes. I was told to change the baud rate on the fax to less than 9600. I don't know how to do it on my brother intellifax 4100e. can you advise?
It is not normal for someone to send 1600 sheets via Fax.
Unplug the fax/phone line from the fax machine...verify that your fax is ok by just making a copy on it without the line plugged in...then report the problem to your local phone company.
Your product must be accidently set to copy mode instead of fax mode and when it is, it actually expects a document to be loaded in the tray to "scan/copy" so change to fax mode again and try to sent the document. This should fix your problem.
If you do want to make a copy, make sure a doc. is loaded and press start copy to do so.
You will have to ask yourself the question "What has changed?" If you changed nothing, then something else has that is beyond your control. Now, you have to decide whether you are using a single telephone line for faxes and telephone, or whether you have "distinctive ring" also called "smart ring" by some companies. It is not a smart thing to use both. You can print a list of settings to see what the machine is set to do. Now if you want to use distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to the one you have chosen with the tel company. If you have chosen a double ring, and you have set your panasonic telephone to receive on 4 rings, then it will count all the rings and pick up after only 2 sequences. To see if this is the problem just remove the telephone base station from the system and then try to receive a fax.
