"Receiving Sleep" on Brother Fax 4100

Please help me. Our business fax says receiving sleep, but none of the faxes are coming through. I cannot get it off of sleep mode and people are calling saying it is busy. I don't want to unplug it and risk losing faxes in memory that need to be printed. How do I get the fax out of sleep mode and back to printing? My Brother MFC 9440CN is hooked up to a network. It went to "sleep", and I can't get it back out without turning off the printer and turning it back on. This is a concern, as I hope I'm not missing faxes. (I share the line with an answering machine, and I have it in TAD mode...)

You might have to change the settings for the switching time into stand-by. plz have a look into the manual which describes these settings (zero seconds are possible)

The Brother FAX 4100e says "sleep" all the time, though it seems to work okay. Is this right?


that's an energy saver function. If your fax is sending and receiving fine, then take it as a money saver :)

Hope this helps.

Sleep mode will not disable, even when send button pushed, paper put in for fax or receiver taken off hook. Sleep mode set to default 5 minutes.


Press Menu 1,8
then set minutes to 00
press Stop/Exit

This should disable Sleep mode. Please post back with any questions or to rate this solution. Thank you very much.

Our Brother Intellifax 3800 will go to sleep and ignore attempts to send or receive faxes. It will take a docment into memory and go to sleep and not send it or the phone will ring with an incoming fax and...


i don't have the owners manual handy, but i'm quite sure you can disable the sleep mode by pressing a couples of buttons on control panel. that procedure is in your owners manual on the same page as setting sleep time.

BROTHER FAX MACHINE 2800


Your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode function reduces power consumption while the machine is idle. You can adjust how long your Brother machine is idle (between 00 and 99 minutes) before Sleep Mode is initiated. Please note that the default setting is 00 minutes, and the timer automatically resets itself after the Brother machine receives a fax,receives data from your PC, or makes a copy. To adjust your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode setting, please follow these steps:

1. Press MENU/SET, 1 (General Setup), 7 (Sleep Mode).

2. Use the dial pad to enter the amount of time the fax machine is idle before Sleep Mode is initiated (00 to 99 minutes).

3. Press the MENU/SET key to confirm your choice.

4. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.

NOTE: If you frequently print, copy, or fax, set the idle time long
enough to insure that you will not always have to wait for the Brother machine to warm up.

Brother IntelliFAX 5750e Laser


Is tel line going into correct socket of fax? (Line not Ext.)

 

Is Fax set to auto answer or manual?

 

If you pick up line or press speaker button can you hear other fax sending if so press start and hang up you should receive fax, and you have just proven that machine is in manual receive mode!

 

I think you will find it  will wake from sleep automaticly if setup correctly.

"Receiving Sleep" on Brother Fax 4100


The sleep mode is only a power save mode. You may not have the machine in the correct fax receive mode. If the machine is on a line by itself it needs to be set to fax only, if line is shared with a telephone it needs to be in fax/telephone, if you share the machine with an answering machine it needs to be in TAD mode, and so forth. Each time you press the MODE key it will change the receive mode. Most people hit this key by mistake and change the MODE and the unit will not pick up calls. Press the MODE key until you are in the correct mode. To make sure the machine will print, press reports and then the 1, this will print a help list. If the help list prints you know that the machine works. Then check to make sure the machine is in the correct fax receive mode.
