POOR LINE CONDITION


Do you have DSL internet coming into the location where you are attempting to use the FAX machine? The reason I ask is because, if that is true, you may have a filter to reduce noise and that may be causing problems. I have DSL and whenever I use my FAX machine I have to unplug the filter from the phone wall receptacle and plug the fax line straight into the wall phone receptacle. Here is a photo of what
you may find if you have DSL.

This is a strange problem you have here my friend. I found the manual if you need it. it is located here: http://www.brother-usa.com/Data/Documentation/Fax/User/UM_FAX575.pdf If you cannot sort it out with the manual, I suggest that you contact Brother USA and see if they can assist you. their telephone number should be on page 1 I think Good Luck

Can't receive faxes, I can send faxes and print reports though. messages says "Receiving Error - ask sender to send again". Any ideas?


Have you gotten and old telephone and plug it in where the fax goes and see (hear) if you have any problems with a good dial tone and phone line? Does your phone line go near any high power a/c units big motors, mite think about a ferrite core for the fax/phone line. hav ATT or other carrier check your line. Also check your own line when ATT does it there check is only to the location not inside the house. Does your sure protector protect your phone line, really good sureg protectors protect Power lines fax lines!!! and in some case network lines

Cannot receive a fax but can send one out


Make sure your phone lin is plugged in the jack on the machine that says LINE not the jack that says TEL or PHONE. I have seen this before. the unit gets a dial tone and can send but will not answer.
Hope this helps

 Must have DSL filter attached before fax, not sure how you are saying you have it setup, but phone line should come from wall then to filter then to fax socket marked line, phone should be hooked to socket on fax marked EXT, if you dont have dedicated fax line then fax number will be same as phone no.

 

If you have Adsl then there will be a lead from wall that splits into two, one goes to your modem (ADSL) and the other marke phone or line needs to go to fax socket marked LINE

I need help with a fax machine


Sounds like you may have a noisy phone line, incorrectly set transmission level or no filters installed if using broadband adsl service, also pick up phone is it free of any background noise or crackles? (tel phone company or cable problem if noisy)

 

In australia there is a service for test fax level across phone line called FOLDS (Fax online diag service) maybe your carrier have one too so you can test?
