I have my fax machine hooked up together with my telephone. Fax picks up after the first ring. How can I adjust it to ring at least 4-5 times before fax machine goes into receive mode. Thanks, Paul.

There is a help menu on this machine. To print this out, just press the help button. To change the fax/tel ring, 1st have in mind how you want your fax machine to work. Do you have an a TAD connected? Do you want the fax machine to take priority over tel calls? The fax machine seizes the line after the set number of rings, that means any other device connected to other phone outlets, will not answer after the fax has answered. Have this in mind when you set the ring time. The TAD will have it's own ring time too.

Brother 2820, LED display says "telephone". I have tried menu/set, press 0, then 1, selected fax only and pressed again menu/set and then stop/exit. But telephone is still on the display. When...


Kindly check if the telephone cord is connected properly from the walljack to the LINE jack of the machine and the handset is connected to the jack that shows picture of a telephone.
If it still shows telephone press hook/speaker phone.
Hope this will help.

I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.


The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!

The fax machine is in sleep mode


Fax machines are ANALOG devices and will not work reliably on a DIGITAL phone line . Filter makes no difference.

Receiving Faxes


You will have to ask yourself the question "What has changed?" If you changed nothing, then something else has that is beyond your control. Now, you have to decide whether you are using a single telephone line for faxes and telephone, or whether you have "distinctive ring" also called "smart ring" by some companies. It is not a smart thing to use both. You can print a list of settings to see what the machine is set to do. Now if you want to use distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to the one you have chosen with the tel company. If you have chosen a double ring, and you have set your panasonic telephone to receive on 4 rings, then it will count all the rings and pick up after only 2 sequences. To see if this is the problem just remove the telephone base station from the system and then try to receive a fax.
