Make sure ECM is turned on. Do not turn on Junk Fax because you will most likely block other faxes.
If you really want the fax machine to work properly, you should connect it to a dedicated line.
You will be disappointed with performance if you try sharing it with other items on the same line.
Reasons, your fax line will be busy when your other functions are being used, and obviously you will miss faxes.
If you are taking a call or message when fax comes in, if the machine is made to give faxes first priority, you will be disconnetcted.
Also, which one do you want to set to pick up first?
The fax machine answers on a certain ammount of rings and so does Voice mail. Which has priority to you. DO you want to miss faxes for messages, or messages for faxes.
Set up vioce mail for 3 rings and fax for 4, then you miss the fax. Reverse it and you miss the message.
Just telling you, I have people call all the time for issues with faxes on the same lines with other items, Answering machines, credit card billers, other phones, etc etc etc.
Good luck. But putting multiple items on the same phone line is setting you up for disappointing performance. And it will not be the problem of the fax machine, It is designed to do what it is supposed to.
Just telling you the truth up front. If your faxes and messages are both important to you. You need a dedicated line for the fax.

SOURCE: Certain faxes won't come through

I have heard of machines having a compatibility issue with other machines. I would call brother or a brother dealer, first find out what the other machine is. it is likely not recognizing the handshake signal.

Hi,

You can just simply unplug the telephone cord from the back of the machine so that it will not ring and it will not receive a fax.

I want to change the name (My caller ID)when I fax how can I do that It show up as Holy Dreams that name of our former company. I want it to show as our new company. How do I do that


I believe you wish to change the "Station ID" on your MFC-240C. This setting will print out your company name and other header info on your faxes:

1) Press the <Menu> key
2) Press <Up> or <Down> Navigate to "Initial Setup"
3) Press <OK>
4) Note: Your station ID is already set, therefore the machine will prompt you to choose: (1) change, or (2) exit without changing - choose (1) to change
5) Enter your fax number, then press <OK>
6) Enter your company name using the dial pad keys. This may take a little practice. Press the dial pad key the correct number of times to produce your desired letter. Use your (>) right navigation key to advance to the next space. If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press the left navigation key to move the cursor under the incorrect letter.
7) Press <OK> when finished
8) Press <Stop/Exit> to resume normal operation

There! You should have it. I hope this helps!

Our 2920 bother fax machine still has our old fax number on all printed paperwork. Could you please advise how we can change this to our current number? Thanks Lucy


You can change the Fax ID in the menu. It should be located in Menu/Set 0,3 (Station ID). Enter your new fax number, menu/set, new phone number, menu/set, your "name", menu/set. And you're set.
