    you would need to set your fax to TAD: Answering Device...



    Use this mode when your faxline is connected to an external answering machine...



    your answering machine will automaticly answer every call...voice messages will be stored on the external TAD (answering device), and faxes are printed



    Ring delay and ring F/T do not work with this setting

Our HP 2140 fax under distinctive ring setting DRPD was answering under our Master ring (double Ring) until yesterday it switched inside somehow where it now answers regular phone ring instead of...


Was the fax plugged into another telephone line? Maybe a power surge?

My solution would be to reconfigure the fax from scratch to learn the ring pattern.

From the Manual:

Step 1-Teach the HP Fax the ring pattern

The HP Fax will learn the ring pattern when you call it from another telephone or fax
machine.

1. Be ready to call the fax machine.
2. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press OK.
3. Use LEFT ARROW - RIGHT ARROW BUTTONS to scroll through the options until DRPD Mode displays and press OK.
Call this fax from another fax machine... Waiting Ring...
will display.
4. Call the HP Fax.

DRPD OK will display when the pattern has been learned and the HP Fax will return
to Ready mode.

Step 2-Set up distinctive ring (DRPD) answer mode

Once you have activated distinctive ring, it becomes one of the answering modes you
can select by pressing the Mode/Contrast button.

Press Mode/Contrast repeatedly until DRPD Mode appears in the display.

• In Ready mode, DRPD appears in the right hand corner of the display.
• Now, the HP Fax will manage calls and faxes as if it were set to AUTO mode
(AUTO mode on page 28)


TIP: Distinctive ring must be set up again if you reassign your fax number
or connect the machine to another telephone line. Once set up again (that
is, the fax machine has learned the ring pattern and the answering mode is
correctly set), you should test the fax machine by calling the fax number
and another number on the same line. The machine should respond
appropriately to a call placed to the fax number with fax tones, and to a
normal telephone call with the expected ring pattern.

Keep receiving duplicate faxes


Some Brother fax machines are programmed incorrectly so they do not acknowledge receiving the last page of a document. The sender doesn't know you got it, and will resend.
It's harsh advice, but the only solution is to buy a different brand.

Code 721 keep coming up and the machine keeps beeping. How do we fix it?


Error 721: Cannot connect to the Pop Server. (Incorrect POP Server IP Address) Pop Server is down.

Solution: Check the Pop Server IP Address. Contact the Network Administrator

Were you setting up email by chance, you need to make sure the email server settings are set correctly for your POP email provider. Otherwise you will get this message. If you don't use email, go into settings (Fax Parameters) and disable email features.

Brother Multi function centre with fax, MFC 885CW we have the setting on F/T, it answers a fax after 2 rings, if a call coming in it keeps ringing, but on callers end it keeps beeping fax noises, callers...


Hi,

I had the same problem using my Brother MFC 8460N fax on the same line as my regular telephone, which has an answering machine.

There was nothing wrong with my equipment. It was a set-up issue. I solved it as follows, and maybe this will be helpful to you:

Here's what I did, step by step:

1. Put your MFC and your telephone near each other, and within reach of a phone wall jack.

2. Go to the fax machine. Take the telephone line with the clip on the end of it that comes out of the fax machine. Put that into the telephone wall jack.

3. Go to the answering machine. Take its telephone line with the clip on the end of it and put that into the BACK OF THE FAX MACHINE. The port on the back of my fax machine says something like EXT TAD which means external telephone answering device.


4. Go back to the fax machine. You'll now need to play around with the menu options for the fax. My Brother MFC shows this stuff in a little screen on the front. Try and find the Fax Setup options. Next, try and find the Fax Receive options. If you do, select something like External TAD fax receive mode. Do not give up, you're almost done.


5. Next, set ring numbers on both devices, the fax machine and the answering machine. I set both devices' ring numbers to 4. I don't know if these are the optimal settings, or what happens if you set them at different ring numbers. I only know that a "4 and 4" setting works for me, and am not inclined to mess with it.

6. Final detail: the setup should be transparent to a voice caller. Someone who is sending a fax, though, might be a little confused IF, like me, they lean over to listen to their fax machine dial and screech, just to be sure it's working. Such a person may faintly hear my outgoing answering machine message before they heard my fax machine's screech kick in. They might think that they had a wrong number, cancel the fax, try again, call me with questions, etc., etc. So I changed my outgoing message to something like: 'You have reached xxx xxx xxxx. To leave a voice msg, please wait for the tone. To send a fax, please continue the transmission and it will be printed. Thank you!'

That's it. Hope this was helpful.

Best,

Wilbere
