Question about Brother IntelliFax-2820 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Phone line goes to fax, then ans mach...now caller ID won't work.

I've just bought a Brother 2820 Intellifax. Per instructions, my phone wire goes into the fax, and then an output line goes on to my phone/answering machine. A phone call is answered by the machine, while an incoming fax is auto detected by the fax and begins printing. The only problem is that now the caller ID on my phone won't work. The phone and answering machine are an integrated unit. Are their solutions, shor of buying a new type of answering machine? Thank you.

    I have a Brother fax 4100e and just realized caller ID is not working.  I can print a fax report and see all the caller ID calls that came in (not as faxes - as calls).  I called Verizon and they said it's the equipment.  I'm already using the setting that this post suggests which is TAD (fax and fax/tel). Until I figure this out, I'm going to use the manual setting because I use the fax machine rarely.  More ideas would be appreciated.  Could # of rings matter or anything else?

I want to send a fax message using Brother 2820 fax machine, but I don't want the receiver to see my phone number when he receives the fax message print out. Is there any way I can do this?


The FAX machine will print the Tel number that has been programmed in your machine. It does not print on the basis of the caller ID received. So i think if you remove the number programmed in your fax machine

Brother 4100e Fax Problem - Caller ID won't work with Fax Machine


Usually, fax machines don't have caller ID capability.. If the sender's fax number appears on the faxes you receive, it's just that they have programmed it into their fax machine as a header.

Caller ID on EXT phone


First device on the phone line will read hold and confirm receipt of caller ID, there is no data passed to secondary devices.
This is not a fault, this is system standard

Manual Doesn't Work Either!


Fax machines usually don't have Caller ID. If you see the phone number on received faxes its because the sender has programmed it into their fax machine.
