I believe it is set to manual reception, meaning that you have to push start to get a fax. You should be able to go into the setup manual and select automatic reception. In this case the fax will answer automatically. You can test this by calling your fax number from another phone and observe it's behavior.

WHAT DOES MNL MEAN


Hi there. MNL refers to manual fax receive. You must manually answer to receive the fax. I normally have it set to "auto" to receive automatically. Use mnl mode if you have fax set up on a normal voice telephone line and not a dedicated fax line.

Screen says "mnl"


MNL indicates the fax is set for manual reception, you have to press "start" to receive the fax. There should be a button on the control panel for reception mode, press the button until it says auto or fax or fax only. If you do not have the manual, you can go to brother-usa.com and look for downloads.

Our brother fax-827S will not send or receive faxes


The MNL setting has no effect on sending. Try unplugging the power for 10 seconds to see if that clears the problem. Make sure you have a dial tone on the phone line.

I have MNL on screen, fax machine will not do anything


Probablt MNL means manual receive. Therefore the machine will only receive if you lift the handset and press the start button.

Cannot receive faxes...... display on the message panel sleep MNL


The machine is set for manual (MNL) answering - hit "receive mode" until is says "fax only" or "Fax/tel" etc. depending on what mode you want the machine to work in again.
Just resolved the same problem on mine.
