Question about Brother IntelliFax-2820 Laser Fax
The machine sounds like it's set for FAX/TEL. The unusual ring indicates that you're receiving a regular phone call and you should pick up the handset to answer it. If the machine isn't picking up faxes, it could be due to an answering machine on the line or it's programmed for too many rings to automatically print the fax. Please post back to indicate if this is a shared line or a designated fax line for further instructions.

Tips for a great answer:
If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as your fax:
To make sure the printer picks up
incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up
after a greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the
answering machine picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick
up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and
your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects
the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.
If you have a voicemail feature associated to the same line as your fax:
Voice mail and fax can share the
same telephone line if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service offered by
your telephone company. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone
numbers on one telephone line. Each telephone number has a designated ring
pattern (single ring, double ring, triple ring, or double and triple ring). The
different ring patterns let you know which telephone number was dialed, and
which device you should use to answer the call.
If you do not have distinctive ring
service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This
setting lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you
use voice mail more often. You need to turn off voice mail whenever you are
expecting a fax.
I hope this helps.
