    My Brother Fax-575 doesn't change modes when pressing "Recieve Mode" Repeatably. All I see is "DR Mode In Use" and then "Manual". I remember setting this up before and seeing FAX, FAX/TEL and Manuel but I can't seem to get back to it.

    Our fax machine is stuck on "manual" mode. We want it to automatically receive faxes, but don't seem to be able to change the receiving mode. Pressing the receive button doesn't do anything.

If you have the fax-575 there should be a TAD setting.

This is the setting you would use if you're using an answering machine on the same phone line as your fax machine.

To set the Recieve Mode :

Press Recieve Mode. The LCD display shows your current selection.

Continue to press Recieve Mode until your new selection appears. After 2 seconds the screen returns to the date and time display, along with your new Recieve Mode setting.


The 4 Recieve modes are Fax Only, Fax/Tel, TAD:Answering Machine, Manual.

Hope this helps!!!

How do I get my fax machine to receive faxes. my manual is not clear.


First, plug a phone line to the 'Tel' port on the left side. Manual receive fax, pick up handset when fax is ringing and press 'Start' when you hear fax tone.
Auto receive - set the receive mode to 'Fax Only'

I can send fax but cant recieve fax


You have not told us which model fax you have but most machines have a receive mode selection. Your machine may be set to 'manual' receive. It will only receive if you pick up the phone and hit the start buton. The phone has to be connected to the machine. Look on your machine for the receive button. It may be marked as 'auto receive' and 'manual receive'. Select 'auto' so the machine will answer. It may be marked as 'fax mode' and 'tel mode' if so select 'fax mode''. It may also have a selection 'ans mode' you don't want this as it assumes that you have an answer phone connected to your machine and it waits until the machine answers before it detects incoming fax. Good Luck

Fax will not recieve


DR mode means that Distinctive Ring is set to on which will force your fax machine to manual receive. Turn DR off and you can set it to whatever mode you want.
