I could tell you how but it's much easier reading it from the instructions. Here is the link for your manual so you'll have for other things too in case you need it. If this fixed your problem please rate as fixed to the right of my post. Thanks.

Dear crazyturnip

Although familiar with various fax machines, this one i have only dealt with a handful of times, but for manuals, if you go to the website of the manufacturer/ vendor that your product is from, they should and more than likely will have all of the relevant manuals for this device.

With the brother series, usually there will be a series of buttons, either a fax, scan, photocopy, or print button. If you hit the fax button then confirm in the menu, you will be then prompted to enter a phone/ fax number, once you have done this, you then select the YES/ send option, or the green button and off your fax goes, it should spit out a lovely piece of paper that has a copy of the fax you have just sent, and also a delivery report, if your make and model has this feature enabled on it.

As I said thugh, the best place to get your manual from is either the manufacturer/ vendors website, or even by typing in google, manual/ user manual followed by your make and model of device. NOTE: Manuals on web are transported usually using PDF file formats, so make sure you have a copy of adobe acrobat or adobe reader, or else you wont be able to read the thing. You can get this by typing adobe reader in google and finding the free download version. even a trial version will do, because once youve printed the manual, you can swan adobe off by uninstalling it, until the next time you need it.........just as long as you keep the downloaded program file somewhere in your sysem where you know you can get at it.

Well i hope this helps, and i wish you all the best of luck

yours sincerely

How to receive fax

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Phone line
  • Multi-function printer
  1. Step 1 Connect the multi-function printer to a phone line. Most printers with fax capability have more than one phone jack, so make sure you are plugged into the right one.
  2. Step 2 Turn the printer on and access the start-up menu. Pick an answering mode based on your expected usage of the fax capabilities of your machine (see the next steps for more information about this).
  3. Step 3 Put the printer in manual mode if you expect little fax traffic. The manual mode usually requires you to pick up every call that comes to the machine. If you hear the signal for a fax, you push the start button and hang up.
  4. Step 4 Choose the automatic mode if you expect a lot of faxes or have a dedicated fax line. In automatic mode, the printer listens to incoming calls and determines whether they are faxes or voice calls. Voice calls get sent on to your phone, and faxes are picked up by the printer.
  5. Step 5 Select the number of rings you want your multi-function printer to give you before dropping a call. If you are using the manual mode you may want to go with four or more rings. Two rings should be sufficient in the automatic mode.
  6. Step 6 Load paper into the paper tray. Check on the paper level frequently if you receive a lot of faxes.
  7. Step 7 Set the desired print quality, and you are ready to receive faxes.

You should be all set now to receive faxes.

Fax can do copies and send but not able to receive incoming faxes. Did several tests. Modem picks up but doesn't transmit data. LCD screen does not indicate any trouble or alarm.

It's possible that somehow the incoming faxes are going directly to memory and not printing. If there was a Tx issue, you'd get an error message on the LCD screen or a printed out message. Not knowing what kind of machine you have, I can't give you instructions to print from memory but if you check your manual, you should see instructions to both print from memory and set the fax to print automatically.

Fax tolling takes over incoming phone calls before the call can be answered. How can fax tolling be controlled?

The default setting for an Officejet 4255 is to answer the phone after 2 rings. You can change this setting to a higher number of rings which will give you time to answer the phone before the fax picks up.

The instructions you need to change the default answer setting can be found on page 47 of the user manual.

If you are using the phone while trying to send or receive a fax, it will not work.

There were some devices out that would allow you to do this, but they never really worked that well.

If you want to be on the phone, and send or receive a fax, you will need a second line for the fax machine, or you need to use a service like eFax (it sends a fiax like sending email)
