The instruction manuals of fax machines are typically large and complex books. Often there are many options to consider. Mostly the machines can be used successfully without much reference to the manual but when there is a problem the question machine or operator fault can only be determined by thoroughly reading it.

To a large extent whether a fax call is picked up or not depends on the settings (including answering machine), the quality of the phone line and connection and the machine sending the fax as well as the receiving machine.

My fax machine will mostly automatically receive a fax but it seems to miss the important ones and I have to answer the ringing phone, hear the fax tone and press the manual fax button.

I strongly suspect the problem mostly lies with the sending machines - if they are fax machines the results were much better than from a computer being used as a fax machine and while a fax machine will send a receipt, a computer doesn't seem capable of doing so.

Do not know how to send a fax


Check the send/receive settings. A lot of times, these all-in-one machines have auto answer settngs so that the fax machine does not answer every phone call with a fax signal. Go into the menu and see if you have auto answer off or on, and then also check to make sure if you need an answer code to answer the fax when auto answer is not on.

Faxing


If you have a distinctive ring pattern activated in the same phone line you will be able to receive fax, Voicemal, and phone calls without disconnecting the fax cable on the All-In-One.
When you have activated a distictive ring pattern.
Then you need to set the rings to answer in your fax machine to The ring pattern which was provied by your telephone company.
In the Menu/Setup>Goto> Basic fax setup> Then> Set it to either double ring or triple ring which ever is aplicable. Then Raise the rings to answer in advance fax setup to 5 or 6 Rings
The rings to answer in you phone or answering machine should be set to 4 (Always lower then that of the fax)

Good Luck

My model Kodak 5500 printer/fax


Just found your post and I'm having the same problem. Everything else seems to be working correctly. I can copy, scan, print and I THINK I can send a fax correctly, I should have called the person and made sure it arrived. However, I cannot receive faxes. I have an answering machine on the line, but it is not plugged into the Kodak Pinter, it is in another room. The answering machine answered the call, the FAX noise came across, but the Kodak Printer never picked it up and printed out the fax. I think I have all the settings correct, but the instructions are not very clear. Do you think I HAVE to have the answering machine plugged into the Kodak Printer? That doesn't make sense, but I might try it.

CANNOT RECEIVE A FAX


Slim1234,
          A multitude of problems might cause receive problems, and the User's Guide has no "receive Problems" section under troubleshooting - so here goes:

        If I had to guess right off the bat, your problem is probably
that the FAX is in "FAX Storage" mode, and is out of memory.
In this mode, it will print FAXes until it runs out of memory.
See problem "g" below.

   a. Voice mail active on the line - if voice mail and FAX-2820 are
       set to answer the line on the same number of rings, there's
       no way to know which will answer first.

   b. Voice mail active on line - if voice mail is set to answer in
       fewer rings than the FAX, then the FAX will always lose
       (but you'll have no problems Xmitting).

   c. Call Waiting active on the line - the call waiting "boop" will
       kill incoming FAXes (and outgoing FAXes too, but your
       personnel will retry the outging ones until they succeed
       and you may only hear complaints about incoming FAXes).

   d. Your FAX-2820 is set to "Manual" or "External TAD" mode.
       Reset it to "FAX only" or "FAX/Tel" mode (depending on
       your office use of the FAX telephone line).
       How to do this: Menu/Set,0,1 <up/down to select mode>
                              press Menu/Set.
   NOTE: your LCD display tells you your receive mode:
       Mine says "Sleep 22:08 Fax", telling me I'm in "FAX only"
       mode, and its 10:08 PM.

   e. You've set the FAX to RING DELAY - if so, the FAX
       must win. Setting ring delay to 00 tells the FAX to answer
       the line silently (an advantage for a busy MD's office).
       How to change this: Menu/Set,2,1,1
       Ref: FAX-2820 User's Guide p.4-2

   f. You dont have a shared (FAX/human) line set to
     "Easy Receive"; if someone answers the call and
      Easy Receive is off, then they need to press START on
      the fax machine front panel or dial *51 and hang up.
      How to change it: Menu/Set,2,1,3
      REF: Fax-2820 User's Guide p. 4-2

  g. You may be set up for "FAX storage."  In this mode, received
      FAXes will be stored (and printed) until you run out of
      memory (quickly done on a Brother FAX-2820), then you
      get nada (but sending FAXes still works).
      How to reset this: Menu/Set,2,5,1 <up/down>
      REF: Fax-2820 User's Guide p.6-2

  h. You may have set up FAX forwarding.  In this mode, sending
      FAXes will work fine, but all incoming FAXes willl be sent
      to another telephone number.
      How to turn it off: Menu/Set,2,5,1 <up/down>

      If this laundry list of (sending OK, Receiving dead) scenarios
 doesn't resolve the problem, email your FAX number to me
and we'll do some cross-country FAX debugging.

                                  Dave in tech support
                                  amityjones71@gmail.com
P.S.
      The above features may have been set remotely by a
   nefarious (or somewhat knowledgeable) individual - remember
   that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing (even for
   FAXes). See (extensive) remote programming instructions
   on p.6-6 of the User's Manual.

        To print out the caller ID list - and possibly find out the
   source of the remote programming:
   Menu/Set,2,0,3 <up/down to "print report">, Menu/Set,
    Start, <Caller ID report prints>, Stop/Exit
   Ref: Brother Fax-2820 User's Guide p.A-3
