Question about Panasonic Panafax UF-885 Plain Paper Laser Fax
Fax machine moved from NY to CA, went from standard old line to a VOIP line, dials out fine (dial 9 first), connects as it should w/o problems, starts sending fax and dies after 2-3 pages.
It receives fine so far but I've only received 2-3 page faxes, nothing larger.
I'm guessing it has to do with the baud rate (V34/33000). I have no manual and don't know how to change the settings to SLOW down the connect speed.
Can anyone offer some help in how to navigate the menu/function screens?
The fall-back required for transmission over VOIP is not available on this machine. It is a service mode function and can only be set by a technician. However, VOIP is so iffy for transmission that you may require fall-back to 4800 or even 2400. I have found that forcing fall-back more than 2 steps doesn't work.Also the Line equalisation can't be set as there is only 3 settings, 1.8;3.6; and 7.2 Km. Who knows how far to set VOIP, could be 3000KM. I had more success using a very old fax machine sending at 2400BPS that I could set the dip switches. Takes all sorts of changes to have success and then next time you try, it's changed again.

For you to send a fax with the Brother Fax you can try these steps:
1. First make sure that you have a dial tone by lifting the
handset or just by pressing the hook/speakerphone button. Once you have
verified you have a dial tone press the hook button again to return to the main
screen or hang up the handset. LCD should display the date & time
If you don't have a dial tone make sure that
the telephone line cord is connected on the fax machine's Line jack. If you
don't have a dial tone still, connect it to another working outlet. If you
don't have a dial tone still, connect a working telephone on the wall jack to
see if you'll get a dial tone. If you get a dial tone on the regular phone then
problem is either with the line cord or the fax machine.
2. Once you have the date & time on the LCD screen, Load the
document that you want to send on the automatic document feeder which is
directly above the LCD screen.
3. The LCD screen should change from the date/time to "Enter
Fax No. & Press Start" Once you got this screen dial the fax number
and then press Start.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works.
