There are two ways the received documents can be transmitted to the fax machine, one at the front/bottom tray and another at the top/back tray. My fax machine used to transmit documents from the back, however after someone fiddled with it, now the documents are transmitted from the front. Is there anyway to change it back?

Solution : Print Received Faxes or Transmit Documents in the Transmission Line
The machine can no longer receive any new fax transmissions because the memory is full. Clear the memory by printing all received documents, or by transmitting or deleting the documents in the transmission line. Phaser 3100MFP Support Drivers
Check the baud rate of your transmissions. Slow them down to the slowest setting and send a test fax to a helpful person. Slowly increase the baud rate (communication data speed) and send the fax test. When the fax doesn't show up on the receive site, then step one baud rate speed back, and save the setting.
It could also be your fax that is faulty, or even the receive sites fax, also being faulty.
To test your copy-head, insert a document into your loading section of the fax and press copy. If the copy prints out fine, then you know the head is reading correctly.
It is also possible that the receiver fax (the other end) has a printhead failure.
The data transmitted during a voice call and a fax transmission are converted to digital pulses in the same way, so sending is not the problem. The problem is at the receiving end. A receiving fax device has to be set to pick up the call before the voice call device, as it is the prompt of the fax transmission signal that makes the receiving fax switch from send or idle to receive mode.
So, if you are faxing over the internet the intended recipient's setup is a complicating factor.
Since faxing to landline fax machines via VOIP would incur a charge, you might consider a cheaper software solution such as eFax (www.efax.com), which enables the receiver to receive the fax as a PDF document attached to an e-mail.
You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.) If you receive a legal-size fax and the device is not currently set to use legal-size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction feature, the device prints the fax on two pages. NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the device memory until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory. This section contains the following topics: • Receive a fax manually • Set up backup fax reception • Reprint received faxes from memory • Poll to receive a fax • Forward faxes to another number • Set the paper size for received faxes • Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes • Block junk fax numbers • Receive faxes to your computer (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac) Receive a fax manually When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive a manual fax. NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones. You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is: • Directly connected to the device (on the 2-EXT port) • On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the device NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the ADF, then the device will not be able to receive incoming faxes. To receive a fax manually 1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray. 2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray. NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the document feeder, then receiving the fax will be unsuccessful. 3. Do one of the following to answer a fax manually: • Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the incoming call before the device answers. • Turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the device does not automatically answer incoming calls. 4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine. 5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following: a. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color on the device control panel. b. When prompted, select Fax Receive. NOTE: Depending on your country/region, the device might receive the fax automatically when you hear fax tones from the sending fax machine. 6. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.
Yes, you must set up your fax machines like this: The receiving fax must be set to auto receive and the telephone line must be inserted in the "line" input. A line must then be connected from the "Tel" to the "Line" of the Transmitting machine, which must be set to "manual receive." This is not really a satisfactory way of doing things as you can't send and receive 2 machines on the same line together. A much better way is to have 2 lines. with a machine attached to each. Get the tel company to put "No answer transfer" on the line as an accesory. Give them the number of the fax machine that transmits. Make it "manual receive" Now you have a versatile system that you can also use the office telephone with.
You can change the Transmit Resolution but not the resolution or the quality of the faxes received.
If your machine makes goog copies and prints, the problem is on the sender's side.
This is an excerpt from the troubleshooting section of your machine manual:
The image received on your fax machine was very poor. Contact the person sending you the fax and ask them to change their Transmit Resolution and Type of Original settings. Ask the person to make a copy of the document on their fax machine to ensure that it is working properly. Then ask them to send the fax again. If you still have a problem, try making a copy of a document on your machine to make sure it is working properly
