    I have the user's guide and the closest thing I have found to the Menu you were referrin to was under "Fax Parameters" and customizing your machine. There are 60 choices, none of which were fax setup or advanced fax features.

    Please help me find the Menu setup that you are referring to.

    going throught the manuals now, but does the fax work even with 3 rings?

  • Ekse Mar 10, 2008

    I havent found anything yet on how to change after how many rings the fax ansvers but I found this DRD, Distinctive Ring Detector. It might be usefull in the case we cant find what you are actually looking for.

    I hope it shows up alright here:

    Distinctive Ring Detector (DRD)
    Your machine has a special feature in conjunction with an optional service provided by many local telephone
    companies. It can distinguish up to 4 telephone numbers with a corresponding ring pattern identifying each number.
    "DRD" lets you provide multiple phone numbers, one for your fax, business or personal use with only one single
    phone line.
    Please check with your local telephone company on the availability of this service in your area.
    Your machine can be programmed to respond to only 1 of the 4 distinctive ring patterns. To select the corresponding
    ring pattern for your fax number, refer to the Fax Parameter Table on page 37.
    The following table shows a typical example with 4 telephone numbers on a single phone line.
    Telephone **.UsageDistinctive Ring SoundRing Pattern
    555-1111BusinessRiiing...............................Riiing................................Type A, Standard Ring
    555-2222FaxRing...Ring.......................Ring...Ring........................Type B, Double Ring
    Type C,Triple Ring
    Type D,Triple Ring
    (All other than type C)
    (see **te 1)
    The following illustration shows a typical set up, with your machine set to detect Type B (double ring) ring pattern.
    At Your Location with
    Distinctive Ring Service
    A person recognizes the call
    is for the fax machine by the
    double ring pattern sound.
    The fax machine distinguishes
    the call is for the fax by the
    double ring pattern and answers
    Fax **. "555-2222"
    Dialing "555-2222"
    A person recognizes the call
    is for the fax machine by the
    double ring pattern sound.
    1."Riiing" means a long ringing sound and "Ring" means a short ringing sound.

    Operation of Fax / Tel Auto Switching Mode
    Your machine will answer the call when a call is received, then distinguish whether it is
    a voice or fax call.
    If it is a Fax call, If it is a Voice call,
    Your machine begins to receive the Your machine begins to signal (ringing)

    1.The length of time the machine signals can be changed by Fax Parameter **.18 (OP CALL TIMER) (see page 38).
    2.To adjust the Ringer Volume refer to page 25.

    Sorry its hard to read, But if you have the manual. Look on the page 64. Or look for Receiving documents.

My answering machine (phone line) is picking up when I dial my fax number. How do I set my fax machine up so that it will pick up when I dial the fax number?

Either your fax machine is set to answer on more rings then your answering machine is or you dont have the automatic answer key pushed?

Determine how many rings your answering machine picks up on and then change the number of rings to a lower amount on your fax machine. To change the number of rings before picking up the line, press the "menu" key on the fax machine and use the up and down arrows to scroll until you find the "basic fax set up" or the "advanced set up" areas. I am not sure which one will have the number of rings setting. Try looking in both until you find it.

when you see it press "ok" or "enter" get in and change the amount of rings before answering. call your fax machine to make sure it picks up before your answering machine.

This should solve your problem.

How can i change the ringer on my fax machine?

Setting Ring Delay:
The Ring Delay setting determines the number of times the fax machine rings before it answers. If you have extension phones on the same line as the fax machine, keep the Ring Delay at a default setting of 4:
1 Press Function/Set, 2, 1.
2 Press < or > to select how many times the line rings before the fax machine answers (00 – 04) and press Function/Set. If you select 00, the line doesn’t ring at all.
3 Press Stop to exit.

Hope that's clear enough :)

How do i get my fax to answer only after 6 rings

Luckily, you can choose to answer at up to 9 rings. It's in Function Parameters, Function 45 "Ring Detect Count". You can change that number from 1 through 9.

Entering function mode:
Function + 7
Hit "Monitor" 4 times
Hit " * "(star)
Press "1" for Function Parameters
Scroll through, or type "45" to get to that parameter.
Hit enter/Start to change.
