Hi Crosscut. There are many options you can choose from when setting auto receive. I could explain them all but I feel it is best if you see the manual as it contains pictures of what the display should look like as go through the process. I've included a link for your manual in case you don't have one. It's good to have one just in case for the future. You want section 5 on pages 48-50. It shows exactly how to change the settings. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Fax can fax out but cannot receive


What do you mean by "cannot receive"?

Can't you even start receiving manually? When someone rings, pick up the hanset and press START button - it should start receiving. Of course no document should be present in the input tray, otherwise it will start sending.

If you can receive manually, then all you have to do is to change the receiving mode between "Auto", "Fax/Tel" or "Fax", to get automatic pickup and receiving.

I AM ABLE TO SEND FAXES BUT NOT RECIEVE


Can you pick up the receiver on the phone and hear the fax tone when receiving? If so, can you then press the start button and begen receiving? If that works, then the fax auto settings are not set properly. Do you have the owners manual? Read the receiving fax section.
