Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

4 Answers

I have a Model MF 4150 , Serial No. JVM 73593 The Basic Guide that came with the purchase does not provide the necessary information. I have a phone on the same line as the fax machine (plugged into the same wall outlet) and another phone with an answering machine that is plugged into the fax machine. The answering machine is set to answer after 4 rings and the fax machine is set at five rings. When the fax machine is set to default to COPY the fax dos not pick up. When the default is set to FAX the phone that is plugged into the fax machine does not ring. Also, when I pick up the extension phone that is not plugged into the fax machine for an incoming call, the fax tone comes on and it is impossible to carry on a conversation. Would you please advise me how to fix these problems with step-by-step instructions. Thanking you in advance, Andrejs Jansons jansonsa@gmail.com (201) 944-1273

I beleave the best solution would be to get Distinctive Ring Detection from your service provider and then setup the devices accordingly.

Im unable to find your products manual to find instructions on DRD and settings so at this time im unable to provide you step by step instructions on how to get DRD, enable it and set it up.

But thats the thing to get.

    Its Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection



    The manual nitro provided has instructions on how to enable it, and it seems he has also provided them for you so I wont bother to repost them.



    heres the link to the manual again, thanks to nitro

I'm going out on a limb here, and guessing it's a Canon imageClass MF4150... If not, please disregard this solution.

The advanced manual can be viewed / downloaded / printed here, directly from Canon:

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900006459/imageCLASS_MF4150_Advanced_Guide_EN.pdf

To stop it from interfering with the telephone conversation:

Issue: Fax interrupts telephone conversations in answering machine mode (AnsMode)
Solution: Setting the Receive Mode - ICMF 4150

Setting the Receive Mode

  1. Press <Additional Functions>.


  2. Use <I have a Model  - la.gif> or <ra.gif> to select [5 FAX SETTINGS], then press <OK>.


  3. Use <la.gif> or <> to select [3 RX SETTINGS], then press <OK>.


  4. > or <ra.gif> to select [3 RX MODE], then press <OK>.
  5. Use <la.gif> or <ra.gif> to select the desired receive mode, then press <OK>.
    - For [AnsMode], make sure an answering machine is connected to the machine.
    If [AnsMode], [FAX/TEL], or [DRPD] is selected, you can select some settings as below:

    [AnsMode]
    --- [AnsMode CHK TIME] (select time from 10 to 30 seconds for the answering machine to start playing outgoing message after receiving a call)
    --- [FAX DETECT TIME] (select the duration from 10 to 70 seconds for the fax to detect)

    [FAX/TEL]
    --- [RING START TIME] (select the time from 0 to 30 seconds for the phone to start ringing after receiving a call)
    --- [F/T RING TIME] (select the duration of ringing from 10 to 45 seconds)
    --- [F/T SWITCH ACTION] (select the action the machine will take after the ringing ends, Receive or Disconnect)

    [DRPD]
    --- [NORMAL RING]
    --- [DOUBLE RING]
    --- [SHORT-SHORT-LONG]
    --- [SHORT-LONG-SHORT]
    --- [OTHER RING TYPE]
  6. Press <Stop/Reset> to return to the standby display.

One option is that you can set the fax machine to 'manual' (it won't answer when the phone rings) and then if you answer your phone and hear it's a fax, you just type *51 on your phone's keypad and it activates the fax machine. It works like a charm...only down side is that you can't get a fax if you're not home to manually answer the phone first, so this option isn't for you if you get many faxes.

The option you probably want is that you need to extend your "CHK TIME" to about 25sec and the "FAX DETECT TIME" to about 30sec. You should be able to find these options pretty easily on the menu on the fax machine.

About the fax tone, try the above first and we can work on that if this doesn't fix it.

thanks

What model answering machine do you have? You most likely have to put the answering machine into a fax mode, which will let it answer but pass on the call to the fax machine if it hears a fax tone.

If you registered the software after purchase the manafacturer may have this information on file, and they maybe able to provide it to you. Otherwise you may have to purchase a new serial key/ software for them.
