Fax machines are ANALOG devices. Any other condition is a ****-shoot.

SOURCE: Trouble faxing and receiving fax from "Brother 575".

Try changing the "Bandwidth Saver" settings on your Vonage account from the Vonage website. Perform the following:

1. Login to your Vonage account online and click the "Features" tab.
2. Scroll down to the "Bandwidth Saver" link and click on the "Configure" button.
3. You will see a scrollbar with 3 settings: 30kbps, 50kbps and 90kbps

NOTE: My "Saver" was set to 90kbps (Highest Sound Quality) by default.

4. Click on 30kbps (Normal) and click "Submit".
5. Wait about an hour before testing as it could take that long for the change to take effect.
6. Send a test fax to the HP fax test service at 1-888-hpfaxme (1-888-473-2963).

NOTE: This is a GREAT service provided by HP. If your fax goes through correctly, you will receive a return fax within five minutes.

We upgraded to Verizon FiOS and never thought the increased upload speed (4mbps) would present an issue sending faxes. WRONG. We never had fax issues with DSL, Comcast or even Broadstripe VOIP service but for some reason Vonage + FiOS = no fax. That is until we set our Vonage VOIP sound quality to "Normal". Our phone voice quality has been much more reliable since throttling back. This sentiment has also been shared by other Vonage users who have experienced echoing and noise when utilizing the higher quality settings.

Your phone coversations may not have FM quality sound but they will have AM quality and usually that is just fine.

Hopefully this will work for you.

It could be some senders are sending over a DIGITAL PHONE LINE. All fax machines are ANALOG.

SOURCE: Brother 4100e Fax Machine - not receiving faxes

I have this EXACT problem. I called our phone provider (since it game me a poor line quality error) and they said they're aren't any problems but they'll send a technician out when they can. I'm not going to comment on that because this is effecting our business and she seemed not to care. Big NO-NO in customer service; however... The line picks up and the display reads Receiving - Online. Then I can hear it click which is like it just disconnects. It's like clock work, almost as if there's some sort of timer. I've done the perimeter reset, unplugged the machine, everything (well I feel at least). I almost feel there is a setting on the machine disconnecting it after so much time. Please!!! any help would be tremendously appreciated!!!

Unable to receive fax on 4100e


Sorry, but you have to be more specific on what are you trying to achieve and what you have done so far.
Do you want the unit to automatically answer a call and receive the fax? If so, make sure that you have switched it to FAX mode (press the MODE button repeatedly until FAX is shown on the display). You can also set it to FAX/TEL mode, whereby the machine will answer the calls and signal (ring) if it is a voice call not a fax.
The default setting is for the machine to answer after 4 rings, refer to the manual if you want to change this value (you can download the manual here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002079/FAX4100e_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf

If you want to manually receive a fax after you've picked the phone up yourself, then when you hear the other side fax beeping, simply press the START button.

We have the Brother Intellifax 4100E. It was working fine up until last week. Then it started not receiving faxes. We can copy, and send faxes, and receive the confirmation. I have checked the mode button...


Try calling the fax machine from your mobile and see if it picks up or if anything shows up on the screen of the fax machine. Is it possible that you have plugged the fax machine into the wrong telephone line? Try sending a fax to your mobile phone and see that the number is correct.
