SOURCE: I have a Brother MFC 8220 incoming fax problem

Here are a few possibilities:
Does it still say "FAX" on the display? If it says "TEL" it won't answer the phone. Changing it is just a matter of pressing the MODE button, which cycles through four settings. FAX is for dedicated fax lines. If you share the line with a phone, check your manual for info about the other two settings.
In your menu settings is a place where you can set the number of rings before answering. If it's set too high, the sending machine will give up while your machine is still waiting for that 9th ring. I know you wrote that nobody's messed with it, but it's worth checking.
A glitch in the memory may be disabling reception. We can reset it in the Maintenance Mode:
From the Ready state, press these buttons in rapid succession:
Menu
* [the star on the phone dial]
2
8
6
4
If you did all that in under 2 seconds, the display will show MAINTENANCE. If you were too slow, you'll just be in the menus somewhere. Press Stop and try it again. You have to ignore all the error beeps while you do this; it's designed to be nearly impossible to do accidentally.
Once you have MAINTENANCE on the display, simply touch 91 and wait. The machine will clear all its memory, except your stored phone numbers. In a few seconds it will return to MAINTENANCE. Press 99 to exit the mode. The machine will go through it's entire start-up, as if you'd just plugged it in.
You don't need to use another fax for initial testing. Call it from another phone - even a cellphone - and see if it answers. If it squeals horribly in your ear, you've probably fixed it. Now try faxing to it.
If that function 91 didn't help, try something harsher. Go through the same routine above to enter Maintenance Mode, then, instead of touching 91, touch 01. That will clear all memory to the sate where it was when you first unboxed it.
If nothing above helps, it almost certainly needs a new Main Board. Replacing that on a non-warranty machine may not be worth it, but use Brother's website to find your nearest servicer and find out.

Hp officejet 6500 instructions for receiving a fax? Thanks


You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a legal-size fax and the device is not currently set to use legal-size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction feature, the device prints the fax on two pages.
NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the
device memory until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory.
This section contains the following topics:
• Receive a fax manually
• Set up backup fax reception
• Reprint received faxes from memory
• Poll to receive a fax
• Forward faxes to another number
• Set the paper size for received faxes
• Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
• Block junk fax numbers
• Receive faxes to your computer (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac)
Receive a fax manually
When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive a manual fax.
NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones.
You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:
• Directly connected to the device (on the 2-EXT port)
• On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the device
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the ADF, then the device will not be able to receive incoming faxes.
To receive a fax manually
1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray.
2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there
are documents in the document feeder, then receiving the fax will be
unsuccessful.
3. Do one of the following to answer a fax manually:
• Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the
incoming call before the device answers.
• Turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the device does not automatically
answer incoming calls.
4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine.
5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:
a. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color on the device control panel.
b. When prompted, select Fax Receive.
NOTE: Depending on your country/region, the device might receive the fax
automatically when you hear fax tones from the sending fax machine.
6. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.

What is answer mode?


The answer mode determines whether the HP Fax answers incoming calls or not.

Different answer modes are :

* Fax

The HP Fax will automatically answer all incoming calls using the Rings to Answer setting. This is the default setting.

* FaxTel (unit with handset model only)

The HP Fax automatically answers all incoming calls using the Rings to Answer setting. If the call is a fax call, the HP Fax will receive the fax. If the call is a voice call, the HP Fax will create a special ring to indicate it is a voice call. The incoming voice call will need to be answered using the attached handset.

NOTE: If the HP Fax determines the call is a voice call, only the HP Fax will ring with the special ring tone. The other phones on the same phone line will not ring at all. You will not be able to pick up the voice call using the other phones.

* Tel

The HP Fax will not automatically answer calls. Faxes will need to be received manually.

* AnswerMachine

The HP Fax will monitor the line when an incoming call is answered by a person or by the answering machine. If the HP Fax detects fax tones on the line, it will receive the fax.

Cant send faxes or recieve


Do you still have the problem?

Did you go through the entire setup procedure according to the manual including the fax/tel set up? Fax/tel setup tells the fax machine how you are using it. For example is the phone line used for just receiving faxes or is it used to receive phone calls AND receive incoming faxes OR is there a telephone answering device (TAD) attached to your phone line. If there is one, set it to 2 rigns. If you have it set to 4 rings the fax could disconnect before receiving the incoming fax. If you cannot send, then it has to be a line problem assuming you went through all the set up procedures correctly. Short of this you may have a bad unit and need to return it.

CANNOT RECEIVE A FAX


Slim1234,
          A multitude of problems might cause receive problems, and the User's Guide has no "receive Problems" section under troubleshooting - so here goes:

        If I had to guess right off the bat, your problem is probably
that the FAX is in "FAX Storage" mode, and is out of memory.
In this mode, it will print FAXes until it runs out of memory.
See problem "g" below.

   a. Voice mail active on the line - if voice mail and FAX-2820 are
       set to answer the line on the same number of rings, there's
       no way to know which will answer first.

   b. Voice mail active on line - if voice mail is set to answer in
       fewer rings than the FAX, then the FAX will always lose
       (but you'll have no problems Xmitting).

   c. Call Waiting active on the line - the call waiting "boop" will
       kill incoming FAXes (and outgoing FAXes too, but your
       personnel will retry the outging ones until they succeed
       and you may only hear complaints about incoming FAXes).

   d. Your FAX-2820 is set to "Manual" or "External TAD" mode.
       Reset it to "FAX only" or "FAX/Tel" mode (depending on
       your office use of the FAX telephone line).
       How to do this: Menu/Set,0,1 <up/down to select mode>
                              press Menu/Set.
   NOTE: your LCD display tells you your receive mode:
       Mine says "Sleep 22:08 Fax", telling me I'm in "FAX only"
       mode, and its 10:08 PM.

   e. You've set the FAX to RING DELAY - if so, the FAX
       must win. Setting ring delay to 00 tells the FAX to answer
       the line silently (an advantage for a busy MD's office).
       How to change this: Menu/Set,2,1,1
       Ref: FAX-2820 User's Guide p.4-2

   f. You dont have a shared (FAX/human) line set to
     "Easy Receive"; if someone answers the call and
      Easy Receive is off, then they need to press START on
      the fax machine front panel or dial *51 and hang up.
      How to change it: Menu/Set,2,1,3
      REF: Fax-2820 User's Guide p. 4-2

  g. You may be set up for "FAX storage."  In this mode, received
      FAXes will be stored (and printed) until you run out of
      memory (quickly done on a Brother FAX-2820), then you
      get nada (but sending FAXes still works).
      How to reset this: Menu/Set,2,5,1 <up/down>
      REF: Fax-2820 User's Guide p.6-2

  h. You may have set up FAX forwarding.  In this mode, sending
      FAXes will work fine, but all incoming FAXes willl be sent
      to another telephone number.
      How to turn it off: Menu/Set,2,5,1 <up/down>

      If this laundry list of (sending OK, Receiving dead) scenarios
 doesn't resolve the problem, email your FAX number to me
and we'll do some cross-country FAX debugging.

                                  Dave in tech support
                                  amityjones71@gmail.com
P.S.
      The above features may have been set remotely by a
   nefarious (or somewhat knowledgeable) individual - remember
   that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing (even for
   FAXes). See (extensive) remote programming instructions
   on p.6-6 of the User's Manual.

        To print out the caller ID list - and possibly find out the
   source of the remote programming:
   Menu/Set,2,0,3 <up/down to "print report">, Menu/Set,
    Start, <Caller ID report prints>, Stop/Exit
