The book says
No fax detected The product answered the incoming call but
did not detect that a fax machine was calling.
This could be really tricky. The missed faxes could be just random wrong number or recorded sales calls that are dialing you machine.
If you are sure they are fax machines calling then we get into phone line issues and that sort of thing. If you get static or noise on the line it can affect your machines ability to hear the other machine. I saw somewhere tha replceing the cord form the wall to the fax helped some people with a similar problem.
You can always try turning the machine off and unplugging it for awhile this is a common suggetion from HP for almost any product with a problem.
Hope this helps

If you have an answering machine, have it answer at three rings. Have the fax answer at five rings. Let the answer machine go thru it's cycle, and see if the fax picks up.

this is a very common problem. You have to clean the scanner lamp glass. There must be some dust or correction fluid if you have ever used which has stuck on the glass of the scanner lamp which prevents the light from falling onto the originals. Lift the control panel, you will find the scanner lamp where theoriginals are normally fed, clean with a soft cloth and alcohol.

do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.
- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).
Hope this will put your Brother on the track
