You must set the ring pattern to the pattern associated with the fax number assigned to it. 1st tho, check to see if Distinctive ring is set to "ON"

My MFC 8500 brother fax machine reports poor line condition when i try to use it with Magic Jack. Is there a solution?


You might try a better/faster internet connection or a faster computer to run it off of. VOIP phones have troubles handling faxes for this very reason.

Have the brother mfc-5890cn having fax issues


Can you hear the receiving fax pick up the line? If so, you may need to slow the speed of your fax modem to allow for poor line conditions. You can find the instructions on page 12 of the Users Guide. If you don't have one, you can download a PDF file of the guide on the Brother web site.

Brother mfc-260c not recieving fax, has dial tone.


Im not very familiar with that that model in particular. I would check to see if the is an auto recieve button on the control panel or in the fax settings. Just a thought not an absolute solution.

Need to set up phone/fax instead of just fax


I have a HP Officejet J6480 All-In-One and needed the answering machine and fax to be on at the same time.  I called the help line at HP and they said I needed another phone line into the home but I tried this and it worked. 
First I got a different phone number for the fax machine - they do this for no charge at my phone company. This is not another physical line into the home - it is just another phone number with a different ring - it rings 2 fast rings for the fax machine instead of the phones regular one ring. I set the answering machine built into the phone to pick up after 4 rings and I set the fax machine to pick up on 2 rings. Be sure to set it so the fax pick up number of rings are less than the answering machine pick up number of rings.  It worked for me. Hope this works for you too.

Have voip and brother mfc 7420. error code 2001 and 2006


Get a new phone wire. Put a phone on the line and listen for static. Too many phones on one line will cause problems. If the phone line is going thru a surge protector, check the quality of the sound with it and without it, it may be damaged. Keep power wires away from phone wires, they cause static.
