Question about Ricoh FAX2900L Plain Paper Laser

1 Answer

Fax2900L machine not working according to set user parameters

While programing a large group list (53 numbers) to a quick dial, somehow my settings were reconfigured on the machine and I can't reset it to the way it was. There are 3 issues which I have identified as not being the same as the way they were and i would like them to be.
When I print the parameter list it shows that my settings are they way I want them to be, however, they are not functioning in this manner.
Transmission mode is set for "memory" (which is the desired setting)but when faxing, the number is displayed as dialing (this never happened before), there is a long pause before the paper is accepted and there is no confirmation sheet printing as it states it should be on the user parameter list This appears to be the functioning characteristics of the "immediate transmission" mode rather than the "memory transmission"mode.
Through inner office test, know the faxes are transmitting but I can't get them to produce a confirmation.
The "Memory" button on the machine beeps when pressed but the light does not go on or off. Also the quick dial/group button that I programmed does not function any longer (it worked fine when I sent the multi # group fax- all were received).
Any adjustments I seem to make on the user parameters don't seem to "take".
What did I do?
How can I fix this?

You have programmed the broadcast with 1 too many numbers using the 10 key method. You wioll have to remove just 1 of the numbers in the broadcast. Not one of the quick dial numbers or one of the speed dial numbers, but one of the numbers you entered using the 10 key pad. I believe the maximum is 10, but you must leave 1 free for the memory to work.

I see that you have programmed 53 numbers for this broadcast. Why not assign speed dial numbers for those that you have used the 10 key pad for?

How do I send one fax to multiple receipents?


you need to set up a group to send to. So if the group is always changing this may not help much.

Groups allow you to send the same fax message to multiple numbers (broadcasting). You can store the Groups on your One-Touch keys or SpeedDial locations and then broadcast by pressing a One-Touch key and Fax Start or by pressing Search/Speed Dial, the three digit location and FaxStart. First, you will need to store each fax number you wish to includein your Group as either a One-Touch or Speed Dial number. Then, you can combine these numbers into a group. Finally, you can have up to six Groups, or you can assign up to 131 numbers to one large Group. Each Group uses one One-Touch key or Speed Dial location. To set up a Group, please follow these steps:


1. Press Menu, 2 (Fax), 3 (Set Auto Dial), 3 (Setup Groups).


2. Press the One-Touch key on which you wish to store the Group or pressSearch/Speed Dial followed by the three-digit Speed Dial location where you wish to store the Group. The LCD will read SETUP GROUP:G0 ENTER & SET.

How to specify fax machine to dial '9' before fax number?


Hello ilay,

This procedure is from the Brother FAX-4100e FAQ link:

Storing Speed Dial numbers:
You can store Speed Dial locations on your machine(*). Once you have programmed the Speed Dial number on your machine, you can dial the number by pressing Search/Speed Dial, #(Pound Sign), the Speed Dial number, and then Fax Start.
*The number of locations you can store varies by machines. Please refer to the User's Guide for your machine. The latest User's Guide is available in the Manuals section.

To store Speed Dial numbers follow the steps listed below:

1. Press Menu.
2. Press the left or right arrow key to select Fax and press Set.
3. Press the left or right arrow key to select Set Auto Dial or Set Quick Dial, and press Set.
4. Press the left or right arrow key to select Speed-Dial and press Set.
5. Use the dial pad to enter the location (Speed Dial number) where you wish to store the number and press Set.
6. Enter the number you want to store (up to 20 digits) and press Set.

Note:
If you want to enter a pause in the dialing sequence (to wait for an outside line, for example), press Redial/Pause as you're entering digits. Pressing Redial/Pause enters a 3.5-second pause when the number is dialed, and a dash appears on the screen. If you need a pause longer than 3.5 seconds you can press Redial/Pause as many times as needed.
7. Use the dial pad to enter the name or company name (up to 15 characters) and press Set.
If you want to store the number without a name, just press Set.
8. Return to STEP 5 to store another Speed Dial number or press Stop/Exit to exit the menu.

I WANT TO SEND THE SAME FAX TO SEVERAL NUMBERS


You are wanting to use the Broadcast feature of your fax machine. According to page 65 of the users manual, you load the documents, press Broadcast, and enter the receiving numbers by using the rapid keys, speed dial keys, group keys, or individual telephone numbers (maximum of 20) pressing Start/Enter between each of the entries (except for the rapid keys and speed dial keys). Set your contrast and resolution (if desired) then press Start/Enter twice to being.

Is there a way to program it to fax to a group of numbers at one time


You can use the "Broadcast " feature to send one fax to up to 112 numbers listed in your speed dial. To set this up:
  1. Insert the original into the ADF.
  2. Press Quick Scan/Reports. The display should show how much memory is available.
  3. Enter the One-Touch or Speed Dial numbers for the recipients you want to send to (one after the other). You can also setup a group dial number.
  4. Press Fax Start. The machine will scan the document into memory and then dial all the numbers you've entered. If any are busy it will attempt to redial.
  5. Press Stop/Exit at any time to cancel the broadcast.
If you need further instruction on how to setup group or speed dial numbers, Brother provides the user manual online.

Hope this helps!
