If you have had a power outage or spike, it may have reset to factory settings.You have to go into you menue and find the fax settings mode. Go to the receive,make sure it is set to auto.If not you may have a tx/rx board problem.

When we set the time on our fax it doesnt save the correct time, we set the time and it only stays for about a couple of days and it changes. Do you have any ideas for a solution.

SOURCE: Brother Intellifax 4100 unable to send fax but can receive

Is the fax sensing the paper you put in to send out? Check the little black levers that poke into the document area. They should move freely when you touch them gently with a finger, and return quickly when you take your finger off. If it can't sense the paper it won't try to send a fax. If, when the paper is inserted, the display changes from whatever it said to anything else, the paper is being sensed.
Let's try dialing manually. Just left of the 1 key is a button labeled "Hook." Pressing that will take the telephone line "off-hook," like picking up the receiver of a phone. You should hear a dial tone -- if not, try adjusting the speaker volume with the buttons just right of the numbers. Once you get a dial tone, dial a number, whether it's another fax, or your own cell phone. As far as the phone company is concerned, your fax is just a phone, calling another phone. If you can make a call, and the phone at the other end rings, we're closing in on the problem. If you can dial another fax machine manually, you can still turn this into a fax call, assuming there's paper ready to fax. After the distant fax answers, touch the Start button, and your fax should take over. If you can't dial manually, try unplugging your fax from the phone line, and replacing it with a regular phone. Can you make calls with it? If not, the fax is no longer a suspect - you have a phone line problem.
Are you at a business where you need to dial 9 to get an outside line? It's easy to forget that detail when you're using a fax, but it has to dial out just like any other phone on the system.
If you can't get a dial tone at all with the fax, but it works with the phone alone, the main board in the fax is probably bad. If you can dial manually, using the Hook switch, but the same number doesn't work when you dial xxx-xxxx-Start, that sounds like a main board problem, too.

There is no dial tone for fax, why


The only thing that could stop you from sending a fax or not get a dial tone, would be the connection to the phone line. Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions. If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

First plug in a normal tone tellefone into the wall jack that your fax is using.Make sure you get the fax signal from the faxnumbers you struggling with.If you can hear any line noises on the line it may be the problem why you cant get a fax trough.Make sure your fax is set on the correct county code-tone or pulse.

First the link to the manual

http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_IntelliFax_4100e_EN_250.PDF

The date and time are set up under general set up. Under that menu there is also TONE/PULSE dial mode setting if you have accidently changed this to pulse it will cause issue. Change it to tone if you have and this will resolve the problem. Pulse is the old style phone system.
